I got bored Last night and took my headlights apart. Cleaned them out good, and installed Blue LED things in them. Pretty cool.
also got my New wheels, but I wount be able to use them for a couple months. I need to get Disc brakes and probably fat fenders for the rear. Also tires. The wheels are 16x7 and 16x8 968 wheels.
NOV 12 2005 - Installed the Truss bar. Really stiffened up the rear end since the whole drivetrain weight is on the frame horns. Very noticeable on takeoffs and also smooths out some vibration at high speeds I noticed. I have EVERYTHING I need too hook up the BigRed valves and RidePro E controller, I just need time to do it. probably Saturday...
NOV 11 2005 - Reamed the holes in the spindles to flip the tie rod ends last night. Now my tie rods clear the gas tank no problem and the beam is so low I cant even stick my finger under it. Soon to install Bugpack Kafer cup bar accross rear shock towers and frame horns to stiffen up the rear end. Finally hooked up some cheap speakers with kick panels as a temporary stereo. I'll take some pics this weekend maybe. I've just about got all the airline, bolts, and fittings I need to upgrade the air valves, Waiting on Air Ride Technologies E controller, I'll probably get it today or tomorrow but I've still gotta drop out the engine to install the truss bars.
June 22 2005 - This week I got the whole car polished, got the new smoothie hubcaps on, tailights assembled and put on last night, and working on putting all the trim on. Pretty soon the outside will be finished. I'll give it a good wax and buff and get some good pics up. I will also put the rear decklid on when I get the chance, since that is all polished up too.
June 13 - Went to the VW Classic in Irvine on Sunday. We left Vegas at 4am. There were some cool cars there, but a couple that weren't there that I was expecting to see. It was still pretty cool. My car will probably show up at the Vegas show in October. I did get my seats in on Saturday, I will get some pics up this week.
JUNE 2 - Got the 135s up front. We'll see whats next.
MAY 29 - Took the car for a test drive Saturday after adjusting brakes, clutch, throttle and re-routing some air lines to accommodate the gas tank. I found out the engine fan needs to be torqued down because I can hear it spinning, Also the engine needs a quick tune up. More than anything I need to put the seats in and get the front end aligned. I will need to get some 135 size tires soon If I want to lay the pan. It's currenly on all the 165s that came with it. Right now the front beam is still 2 1/2 inches up with the tires touching the fenders.
MAY 24 - Front end is complete, air system fully operational, I need to get smaller tires for the front though. The Front fenders are sitting on top of the tires. Probably going from 165 to 135 size tires. Now comes hooking up the steering wheel, pedals, shifter, gas tank and other small things.
MAY 20 - Finally got my spindles, I had them preassembled so I could put 'em right in. I also put in a new steering box. I need to assemble my new tie rod ends and hook up the steering. Then I will put the brakes and wheels back in. From there I can bleed the brakes and go for a ride! A 4" beam might have been better than the 2" narrow, but I would need some pretty custom shocktowers. Also The Porsche Cup wheels I want have a high positive offset, so they pretty much tuck in the fender by themselves.
