This weekend I took some time and finally revamped the garage to make it more tool friendly.

First off I needed more power for the air compressor and welder. Also some more outlets for the beer...

Can you have them x-rayed for cracks?

A little wear on them should not necessitate trashing them.

If it is just cosmetic then I see no problem in using them. Could a Porsche dealer/shop...

WTB: rear 944 924 steel backing plates

Needed for swingaxle conversion.

Rear 944 or 924 steel backing plates for the emergency brake stuff.

I can trade AL units if needed to drop some pounds.

Thanks!

I like the BBS wheels. No need to change a thing!

The Pannasports are a very light wheel though and you could probably sell them pretty easily to a 914 racer dude.

FWIW the RX-7 oil cooler have a t-stat already built in. IMO the RX-7 cooler is the best out there for VWs IF you can fit it somewhere.

VeeDub, that can totally be done. You just need the right cam and valvetrain to pull it off... Granted for the money you might as well build a bigger engine at the same time.

Aerodynamics, yes. ...

You can do it!

It sounds like the float or float bowl metering valve is to blame. The valve is included in a rebuild kit.

Hazen, the rear brake choice is of course early 944. Good price with a little elbow grease and better than any dinky stockish VW that I have seen.

As for the spacers / adaptors I agree with what...

Thanks for the info Super!

If you have the 26mm rear bars then I guess the GR-2s could be weak then :(

I guess the rear Gas-A-Just might be the way to roll.

The wife vetoed the "Black Widow" name, but the look will be the same with red/black accents.

The Oval will look a little raked which I guess is okay...
