Chassis came back from powdercoaters (Perfect Coatings, Beds)







Which then got Gravitex'd and painted 2k black













Blew off the cobwebs on my suspension stuff and started the rebuild. 944 Turbo arms and torsion bars – fitted with swan necks for the handbrake conversion and 996 discs.









Swan neck fitted up to handbrake cables



Handbrake fitted up



Tilton set up fitted


Then started on the Hydraulic clutch. Got an adapter t piece from npt to jic for the Goodridge lines im fitting.







Which was then coupled with the pedals – kinda hard to get a pic of it





The line exits out the clutch cable conduit


Fitted the fuel feed line and return line


bug@5speed shifter fitted with shift rod also.

And cleaned up the rear brake unions so they look new again! ( Thanks to pruplebug for one of them!)









So that’s as far as ive got so far on that

Ive also fitted up the 996 seats to the beetle subframes by welding on some tabs









Also painted my gearbox painted, but ive just figured out I either need to get a different box, or strip this one to have the throw out bearing guide tube milled down (martin bott suggested this) so I can fit the bug@5speed conversion tube. Pretty gutted as I didn’t really want to do that and stripping the box looks like hassle.


Done until next year now. have a good new year everyone!!!

Nice work!

Your sure those are the (wider) turbo arms though? They seem to have the shorter outer nose (?)

Thanks guys wrenchnride stop working on other peoples cars and get yours done your motor looks ace btw!
Wally - you are right they are the narrower turbo arms.

Wally on a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate the difficulty of stripping down the 915 box? I've never done a box before.

Cheers

Deano

There is no such thing as a 'narrow turbo arm', but hey who cares

Just taken a 915 apart is really not that difficult in hindsight, you just need to overcome a barrier with yourself. Its more psychological than mechanical really

You do need a good manual/parts sheet to get starting though.

taller disc then lol. Cool, i think it just seems a bit intimidating if that makes sense. I read a rebuild thread and it looked straight forward but i gues you never know until you give it a go!

Right more of an update. fitted up the front fuel line fittings which was a pain and gave me a blister lol!



mastercylinder painted and fitted. thinking about mounting the linelock here or bulkhead.



i got my brake lines made up.









body rubber hole punched and fitted



Fitted up a temporary beam that was on the shelf – it appears it has no beam bearings and the torsion arms properly waggle around lol. Managed to get a second hand beam im goin to narrow to use until I get round to making one



Then yesterday I got the body on and bolted it down today. Im WELL pleased I feel like I did when I first bought the car when I was 17!!!

Moving along very nice! I hope you plan on putting some sound-deadening in before interior is fitted though.

The Tilton piece, mounted on the tunnel by the shifter, it's a staging brake?

That would be a brake-bias valve. Used to adjust the balance between the front and rear brakes.
