68 Ghia Convertible

Killed the Choptop build, and starting a new build for my recently acquired 68' Karmann Ghia convertible. It was built as a show car over many years, but ended up with door gap/paint issues in the end, so I picked it up as a good driver.

It currently has a 2275cc Type 1 engine from Strictly Foreign with Big valve heads, DRLA 48mm carbs, c130 cam, and a sidewinder exhaust.

Airkewld 2" Balljoint beam w/ Airkewld brakes (5x130) front/rear
Stock swing axle pan w/ rebuilt swing axle trans

Watson Streetworks GM style wiring harness
Autometer gauges (w/ wierd gps speedo)
Huge JL Audio Stereo w/ subs behind the seats

Current Plans:
1. Install the 2.7L Type 4 engine I bought from Jakob @ GetBackOnTrack

2. Convert to the Mendeola Front/Rear Suspension/Brakes

3. Recover the Seats + Move stereo from dash to hidden console

4. Fix Paint/Door Gaps (last)

Looks like I will need narrower 17" wheels, will check the front boxster wheels later this week to see if they fit the body, etc.
