New front Vforce struts with porsche 5 stud pattern Rear disc brake
conversion and porsche 5-stud pattern Front Poly bushing kit Steering
damper Reconditioned steering box Torsion bars Rear bushings and bump
stops
2 x rear KYB Gas monotube shocks
New brake master cylinder
New gear shift coupler and bushes

New gearbox mounts
New muffler/exhaust

Oh yeah, that one we outbid you on (teeheehee ;) ) :) :) :)

Yes we have obtained a 1303S badge to replace the Australian "Volkswagen L" badge that was originally on the cars :)

Getting ready for paint, inspecting rust etc.... looking forward to having a nicely painted bug :D
You can see the struts installed more easily in these photos... old wheels on for painting so new ones dont get damaged.

It was hard to get an accurate picture of the colour as basil is inside... so hopefully when I get him home I can take some better ones.
