Got a little time and test fit one rear fender. Things are going slowly because we are filming Longmire an A&E TV show and working 60-70 hours a week. Sleep a lot on weekends.





There is no rear brake disc fitted so things will move out some and will use spacers as necessary.

This is a late aluminum 968 trailing arm with a Porsche OEM GT3 11 rear wheel inside an 11cm widened inside and out Kerscher fender.

Spent some time fitting things before building the new seat brackets. Checking out the CAE shifter with the 993RS steering wheel and Rennline quick disconnect. Will build a mount and re cable the 944T rear to use the 996 GT3 handbrake. I am happy with the way things will fit.

Strangely I think that the flare on those fenders stands out much more in photos than it does in person. In person the flare seems mild

To continue this theme of everything I seem to buy to add to the bug is a shade of red/orange, I now add the door handles. These were purchased years ago from Carlotta (spelled wrong I'm sure) the guy that built the rising 911 rear wing on the back of a Bug. He was selling his Bug and I tried to buy the rear deck but he said all or nothing. Then he offered up these bolt on replacement door handles for the Super Beetle. So I bought them, and now a dozen years later have dug them out for use. My question is should I drill them like a light weight Porsche or leave them smooth? Opinions?

Smooth vs Original Chrome


Yet another red/orange part
