Here we go again! Zuffenhaus MS RSR project...

Hey guys. We can't seem to behave like a normal shop around here.

I thought you might be interested in a current project:
(this is why you should never leave your car unattended at zuffenhaus)

a client brought us his really clean '87 Carrera to get a little work - rollbar install, sunroof delete, and driprail removal.



- then, while we are in there, why not a 935 mirror conversion, and FULL rollcage, for SERIOUS trackwork (and rigidity)

at this point, our client decided to go widebody and benefit from the increased track and width.
(our clients are smart)

and you know what? they all really wish they were longhoods, anyway:



we'll be using a hybrid FG hood on this one - early skin with short hood latch stuff below.
when a composite hood is wanted for a backdate, this reduces the labor time involved with the conversion.

we make a remote cable pull to release the hood - positioned within compfortable finger reach, like this:







The fuel filler door gets filled in - the owner will be running a Fuel Safe fuel cell with under-hood fill, so we'll smooth that fender.

- and brakes. GTP Lites. (and not just because we are a Brembo dealer!)





this car was already setup for track work - Elephant suspension (we're still liking that ASP system), Hargett shifter, etc., etc.

- and slight upgrade in WHEELS:














THIS is why I come to work in the morning:



so sexy...

These are 17x9.5 and 12 CCWs, Full black. Not quite vintage, but will work nicely with the overall visual theme - kind of Retro-Racecar. (our specialty)

It's fairly exciting around here right now. While this project progresses, we're closing in on the C2 to '72RSR project, getting deep into a really special '72 ST build, and jumping into a '72RSR replica for someone with a blue IROC...

Keith,

Very nice work as usual! I have a few questions:

1. Do you cut out pieces from donor doors to use as filler panels for the 935 mirror conversion? It looks like you do.

2. Are the turbo width steel flares that you're using OEM or Dansk panels?

3. For the sunroof delete do you reuse the stock sunroof panel? If so what mods do you make to the panel for this process?

4. Can you provide a few close up pics of the patched door areas and sunroof delete?

Thanks! I may be contacting you in early '08 to help me with a few parts of my widebody project. Keep up the great work!

dear zuffenhaus, im interested in your remote cable pull.

reason my rally hood with vier(4) hellas in TRE's light pod is an absoute PITA to open. like i cant open it myself. always have to have someone pull hood release while i lift up and push lever over to open.

this ingenious idea would make my life wunderbar again. ie. i can do it myself when no ones around. like out on the highway miles from nowhere to change a flat.

so please be so kind to quote me a price on this hood release. looks fairly simple to install. drill one hole, and attach to hood release. anything else to install?

thanks

mines an 87 also

Really great stuff! When is the next swap meet/drool fest scheduled for your shop. I remember coming to one a few months back and had a great time.

Charles,

Maybe consider a stiffer spring. I think that might be easier. www.mcmaster.com carries a good variety.

BTW This is going to be a wicked project.

Cool project!

Any pictures of how you trimmed the inner roof for the sunroof delete? I assume you got rid of the support structure to drop the weight and gain some headroom.

I'm sure the fenders will look great when they are completed, but damn that's a lot of work, why not just go fiberglass?

Very nice but the poor guy could have just bought my 930, had you guys weld in a cage, cut the rails off, toss on a longhood nose on it and go! I only have 9 and 11.5 x 18's though..

Keith, you really do have the best job in the world. When I used to work at a bodyshop that specialized in exotic cars, I couldn't wait to get to work!

There was always some kind of cool project in progress. Best part was I got to use the shop in my off hours to work on my own projects(I was racing sportbikes @ the time and painted bikes on the side for my racing buddies).

It looks like another winner coming from you guys. Keep us posted on the progress.
