made some progress but its mostly been saturday work....which haven't been that productive as we've had a couple of bbqs at work and ive just got a mk2 golf that im tryin on the road as a daily!

but here are a few pics

managed to get a porsche coupler and rod which ive spliced with the beetle shift rod - will be able to make fine adjustments for shifting now! i also installed new bushes



fitted hi pacs - quality products!!











welded up the holes in the moon vent and ground them down with a dremmel - it was a right bitch of a job - also welded up all the holes in the firewall and ground off the tages for the old tar firewall.





also fitted the rear valance, wings and decklid and spent a couple of hours fettling making sure it all aligned properly - need to get better pics of the valance though to show how ive done it.









mmm bbq

Thanks guys....you can see why i became destracted then :lol:

boxed in the boot floor - tried to replicate the pressings using the bead roller!









Phatbug03 was kind enough to let me borrow his case and fan to mock up......and im glad to say.....IT FITS decklid shuts with no probs!





his is a early 911 fan and mine is a 964 fan but i doubt it will make any difference. ive got some better pics with the decklid shut - showing about 30mm of clearence

thanks ragtop81

here are some more pics!


ive done a little more, test fitted the doors, front wings and bonnet!





it all lines up pretty well although i do have an issue with the bonnet sitting slightly proud in the middle which is a little odd as its a NOS genuine item. im going to fit another bonnet this week to see if its the bonnet of scuttle but im sure i can tweak it a bit to get it to fit.



welded up the radio hole and the old drain area by the fuel tank



then i took off all the wings again and unbolted the chassis so i could get the shell on tressels to spot weld on the bottom plates





i also finished off the welding on the fornt bulkead, and the 1/4 strengtheners that attach at the back of the front clip





I also took a couple more pics of where i boxed in the boot floor for the 915 gearbox - underneath









a couple of hte chassis almost finished - i just need to change some brackets for the brake lines and re route the throttle cable tube







i also won these 996 rear calipers on ebay for half the price i was willing to pay

i was a bit miffed when i received them though as they were suitable for 986 discs instead of 996 discs (4mm thicker) so i pushed the pins back to where they should be which was more effort than i thought it would be.
before





after



ive pished each pin out by about 3mm

theyl be refurbed and mated to my 944 T a arms and 996 rear discs with an ally adapter



and now the bugs back on its pan again



ive got about half a day of tieing up lose odds and ends then its ready for prep and paint! whoop!!!

Great job on the calipers! I never thought of pushing the pins outside, good solution. How did you actaully do that as you can't just hammer them from the other side..?

Thanks, i used a large G clamp - and a thin peice of wood to i didnt damage the face of the caliper. i gues i should really drill out the roll pin - and replace it.

i am a bit confused why they were wrong though - the part number is a 996 rear caliper part number - but the pins were 23/24mm apart - so i gues they were used on the back of a normal boxster (20mm disc) not the boxster S. strange one.

Thanks for the comments guys!
well ive not updated this for a while because ive mainly been rubbing for 2 months lol! Ive been prepping the car with my mate craig who's going to paint it for me. so far i rekon we've put in around 200 hours which may sounds like a lot but we;ve gone to pretty good detail inside and out. All the leading and filler work has been done and the car is now im primer (no pics yet), which now just needs wet flatting and the booth is booked for the 13th Nov, 2days before my birthday anyways here are a few pics!















i also finally finished my chassis which is going for blasting and powdercoating next week. i had to set where the shift rod attaches to the gearbox so i could get all gears smoothly and drill the dimple which wasnt easy! that metal is real tough! i also had to change a couple of brackets for the brake lines





ive also been buying all the little bits i need to build the car up including all rubber items! these are my favorite things, new genuine bonnet handle, rear catch and hella light rims.



ive been trying to get new genuine door handles but dont seem to be suceeding. i think il get my old items rechromed but they do have some light pitting.





Ordered up my fuel lines and clutch lines



so yeah its all starting to come together. the last two months have drained my will to live, and my bank account lol - i just hope its worth it!
