this week i made several purchases that i probably shouldnt have as i'm fairly skint at the moment lol! my CSP wings turned up along with my order from pelican parts so i can now build up my rear arms. i also won a pair of 2.0l cylinder heads on ebay very cheap, and some 96mm barrells and pistons.

also this week i changed the door pins on my passenger door, prepped both doors and rear valance and got a coat of reface on them so im pretty pleased

both doors and rear valance are now in reface

also had the boxster S rear discs opened up to sit on the 944 hubs



discs have gone off for powdercoating.

also rebuilt the a arms with new bearings etc and put together the spring plates with weltmeister bushes









slowly but surely making some progress

how bout those Boxster discs at the rear. What it means "opened up".

You mean inside, so You can fit them on to the hub?

Cool project by the way 8)

yeah the hole in the middle has been enlarged 2mm iirc - to the same size as the 944 disc so it sits on the hub in the correct position (if you look closely at the hub there is a raised ring)

Cool.

Does OG 944 4-pot caliper fits perfectly, or You've made some spacers, or You don't use them at all?

il be running 996 rear calipers (same as boxster S) but the disc is the same diameter and thickness as the 944 turbo disc - however i think the offset is slightly different but again only a couple of mm so may require spacers for 944 tubro calipers

well ive been working on the chassis this week to get it finished. ive shamelessly copied a couple of ideas off of another project build on here but as it ws one of the neatest installs ive seen it seemed silly not to!

The rear mounts worked a treat but needed 8mm spacers between the framehorn and cradle





and this is the front mount welded together



which was then trimmed and neatened up





the shift rod was shortened 20mm



and the underside of the chassis was closed up similarly to the other project build.





Framehorns were clearenced for the Larger CV joints



and kafer bar set up mocked up and the tabs welded in



i only had 1 short and 1 long bar to do this as the rest is still being made



i also ran the fuel lines





its off to the blasters and powdercoaters next week, then the obttom is being gravitex'd and painted black (over the powdercoat) then i can start to think about building it up!

Thanks for the comments guys

wrenchnride i dont think it would have been quite the same if i hadnt seen yours :lol: you've definately helped me!!

i'm already thinking about going over to the porsche coupling instead of the beetle coupling lol!

i wont be doing any work on it for a few weeks now as im moving house and changing jobs in the same week.....but when the chassis comes back il build it up and get it rolling - the body is booked in for paint in 10 weeks and i rekon ive got a couple of days tieing up lose ends on that before shes ready to go!

thanks again

Deano
