It looks like that few things at body must be redone again or re-repaired

Nosepiece doesnt fit at right side wery well, tried csp front fender there is about 10-15mm gap between it and fender.

Rear sides needs also redoing, too bumpy and distorted repairs now.

Small things needs fixing, inner fender at right side has few small holes.

I did assemble at weekend these steel prototype brake parts, hats for AP rotors and bracket for Porsche 996 calipers.

They fit great, spindle seems to turn enough until it hits to lower A-arm. Now very close to the correct design, which for i will be using aluminum. Now at all steel these are heavy as hell

In a month or so i start bodywork again, too cold now and not enough sun

Also bought my first own Mig welder about two months ago

In a past week i have been fitting berg bus 5-speed.. let the pictures tell most of the story.

Because of the big engine, Rancho etc recommended aluminum bushes instead of rubber bushes with berg mounts.

I did cut the torsionbar tube area at right, but thin sheetmetal above needed just little hammer only.

First i thought of putting hard urethane bushes, and then bigger rubbers 75x50 with threaded M12 ends. Problem with midmount rubber brackets that they may hit to 944 alu IRS arms, so i designed lasercut highstrengt steel 15mm/10mm flat offset steel midmount, instead of rectangular tube.

Any comments? To each end it can handle 350kg loads where 75x50 rubbers are.

Yeah, with the cross bar you really don't need solid mounting.
I say this because I use original (OEM!) type 1 black rubber bushings at the bell-housing of my G50 and WEVO (upgraded porsche aftermarket) bushes at the (wide) 'nose' mounting point.
The wider the nose mount, the softer the bushing you can use imho ;-)
Never broke any mount, not even after soo many drag race launches, wheels up and all...

Recently i did order around 20 goodridge teflon hose fittings (AN6-AN8-AN10-AN12) and hardline for fuel. Just to make sure, i did sketch about the fittings.







Probably i will take all valvetrain components too before spring (Oteva 90 springs, Manley 38x117 exhaust valves and JPM pushrods). JPM has replaced the old Oteva 75 springs with newer Oteva 90 springs.


Ï'v been also thinking about the rear brakes. I think i will skip the desing where i have parking brake calipers with existing 986 front calipers.



Choice number 1: Stock 944 turbo 298x24 rotor with 944 parkingbrake shoes - it is the cheapest option, rotors 200€ / pair, brakeshoes 60€

Choice number 2: AP racing 315x25.4 rotors with steelhats and 944 parkingbrake shoes - second cheapest option, rotors 500€ / pair, steelhats 150€ / pair, brakeshoes 60€

Choice number 3: AP racing 300x24 rotors with aluminumhats and with parkingbrake caliper - most expensive choice,o rotors 500€ / pair, aluminumhats 220€ / pair, parkingbrakecalipers 250€ / pair

Very cool that you make such nice pictures of the different set/ups!
The alu hat version is of course the way to go if you can spring for it.

Aluversion would be my first choice if it not would need separate parking brake caliper

Just 540 gramm! Awesome. It uses cable operation though.
But a separate hydaulic system would not bother me. Think I even prefer it as would not weigh more.

At winter / spring i got fitted the twopiece rollcage properly, now it is more symmetrical and coworker visited at garage for welding.













Also bought nice drysump tank, which holds about 6-7 litres of oil and at the bottom 2 litres below scawenge line.

Just recently i got my Wasp stage 2 muffler, and it fits really well with 944 turbo rear arms and 4-piston calipers. Looks like i have a lot of room.

Wasp header also did fit with ease














Transaxle needed more room, so cutting was needed to body and patch was made.. Still, far away from paint.

While designing Type 1 and Type 4(!) Billet heads among my project, i am having hard time to decide what rear rotors i should buy.

Fronts are heavy 330x28 48 vane AP rotors, I am looking lighter 315x25,4 24 vane AP rotors to rear, would these be enough?

Fronts

Rears perhaps?
