Hey Seth,
Looking good, and coming right along. I'm looking forward to hear how it handles.

Looking good! You should enter it in the Sebastopol car show on the 27th. We need more German cars there! I have my 911 entered. Last year there were three Karmann Ghias and a really nice Westfalia.

Hey Harold,
All the fabricating and layout on the front suspension has been done by me so far.
Thusly the somewhat crude metal work. I will clean up all the parts and chassis paint them eventually when I am satisfied it all works as planned.
I will eventually mount a splined sway bar for final tuning.
Kinda curious myself as to how it will change the handling.
Stephen

Hey Gordon,
Would be fun to enter the hometown show but will have to wait for next year as the D.C. is still in rehab.
I will stop in and say hello if I get to check out the show.

Another fun show is the Nor-Cal Treffen in Concord.
A laid back mix of Porsche and Volkswagen. I am hoping to make that one. You might have to flip a coin to pick your ride!

Sorry Stephen, I meant you. Some serious fabrication going on there. Just swapping out the stock steering box to rack & pinion makes a big difference.

Roughed in the master cylinder mounting plate and plumbed the lines.

Took it out for its first drive in seven months.
Overall seems to be good, much lighter steering/more steering lock.
I need to tune the alignment more to give it a good test, probably up the front springs to #650. Then pull it all apart again to do the detail fabrication.

Thanks John.
I took it off the road to do the finish details on 928S4 front suspension swap.







Next up will be fabbing in a splined sway bar.

Thanks Harold, it took a bit of time to resolve the layout geometry then I needed to up my limited welding skills at my local maker space where they have the 220 volt machines to melt the parts together.

Yes Gordon, there will be turbos! Twins>eventually.....
