Greenman--

I would love to get additional details about your front suspension mod. I truely believe isolating the sway bar from the rest of the suspension will make the handling more predictable. I have coil overs based on Porsche 944 housings with Koni inserts from a VW Golf and 125# springs(American measuring method....I think you guys use a different standard).

I too have a Mendeola stuffy kafer cup bar, with Porsche 924, 26mm upgrade torsion bars and Koni shocks.

I'm running a stock 1303 front sway bar and 944 14mm rear bar.

Hi

I was able to fit 15x6 Cookies on my car with Boxster fronts and 944 rears with Boxster calipers

Thanks

The assembly process continues.
I've been collecting as many NOS items as possible and finally get the chance to install them.
I tweaked the colour and in person it looks a bit duller in shade.
Hints of Sage Green colour like a 74+ Bus

Hi Bogara_ZO
From memory the rims were 16 * 7" fronts with 205s and the rears were 16 * 8" with 225 tyres with something like a +28 offset
