Spare tire ?
 
boblebaard,

What size is that spare tire ? Is it a Porsche spare ?

thanks

Sandeep

boblebaard April 29th 2003 16:30

Yes, it`s a Porsche magnesium spare tyre from a 993 Turbo.
I don`t remember the size, but I can check it if you want to.

Sandeep April 29th 2003 16:34

Thanks for the reply.

I've got 993 Biturbo front brakes and need a spare tire to cover these.

What is the tire size and wheel width overall ?

I need to fit this in my '74 standards front spare tirewell.

thanks

Sandeep

boblebaard April 29th 2003 17:18

I`ll take a look at it tomorrow, and see if I can find a part number as well.
It fits the spare tirewell with no problems, in fact there is enough space around the spare tyre to fit some extra luggage....
I hope to have the car ready in about four weeks from now if the parts I have ordered from Carbon Joe arrives in time.

I can also take some pictures to send you from some scandinavian VW shows if you want to!

Here`s some good Norwegian sites. (To see photos just click on "treff" or "bilder")

boblebaard,

Thanks for the links. If you could find me a part #, I'd really appreciate it.

Please send us some pics from the Vw shows in your area ! If you can write a few paragraphs about your shows, send the pics and a small writeup (email is fine) to ssyan@digitalminds.ca and I will post it in the Car Shows section on the main page.

Thanks !

Nice car, nice color, and nice parts... I like it!

NYBugman1972 May 3rd 2003 10:01

Gotta love the Polo Super 1600 seats. I do so love the VW Racing logo:cool:

Cool car!

boblebaard May 3rd 2003 14:56

Just visit their site and order loads of cool stuff.

http://www.vw-racing.de

They don`t have the english text ready yet, but you don`t have to understand German to look at the pictures..... :-)
They have some cool screensavers as well!

Spare wheel
 
The spare wheel you can use with 993Turbo brakes has part#
965 362 03 000

It has been delivered with the following models:

928 / 964 / 968 / 993


Hope this could be helpful to find a used spare wheel, because buying a new from your local dealer will be very expensive!

Sandeep May 9th 2003 09:40

Awesome !

Thanks. Now I know what to look for.

Sandeep

boblebaard May 9th 2003 10:15

No problem!

Good to have a friend working for the local Porsche dealer, and me working for the local VW/AUDI dealer....

Did you get the photos from BugRun?

undecided June 9th 2004 02:16

really like the car. how hard was it to french in the side markers?

boblebaard June 9th 2004 03:40

Not so very hard, jost cut out a bit from a wrecked Golf MK4 and welded them to my car. For the fuel filler iI welded in a piece from a Golf MK1.

Thanx! I would love to take it over seas to attend some american shows, but that will probably cost too much.

The mirrors are from a German company called Projektzwo. ( http://www.projektzwo.de )

As you said, the A-pillars makes the difference between a good and a bad driver... ;-) :laugh:

TOW74 December 1st 2004 19:12

What's up dude?
My name is Charles. I wanted to know if you have any pics of the installation of the fuel filler cap. I have a 1974 super cabrio, and I want to put on a feul filler system, and I just wanted to see how it was done. Oh by the way the car is "OFF THE CHAIN !!!!!!!" Thanks, Peace!

boblebaard December 2nd 2004 03:16

Yes, I think I have some pictures.
You`ll need some parts from a MK1 Golf.

Since I work for a local VW dealer I have the partnumbers for you... ;-)

plate, part# 171 809 870 A
fuel filling pipe, part# 171 201 129 F

The cap I used is from Newton Equipment and I bought it from a local Harley Davidson shop.
I`ll see if I can find some pictures when I get back home from work.

vujade December 2nd 2004 12:50

your car has always been an inspiration to me.... I love it!!! :D :agree:
