I placed some 10mm spacers at the front, in order to achieve factory scub-radius again. Scrub-radius also named kingpin-offset is responsible for the self-aligning of the steeringwheel and the feeling (of loosing traction) in your steeringwheel. Without the spacers the scrub-radius would be near zero/neutral, something you don't want with a Germanstyle car!

Some explaination: scrub-radius is 'A':

Thanks! But I really don't know how much the car is lowered, because it's build with parts from several cars. So I haven't got a reference.

However, I noted that this thread isn't updated anymore, so here are some new pictures from (more than) a month ago.

LED turnsignals, behind the horngrills and 911 lenses:


914 gauges, painted and chromed (steeringwheel is temporary):


Ahnendorp Road Racing exhaust (little bit too large for the current 1600, but suitable for future plans):


Current result:
