Yep, grafting. I had orginally planned on making it a bolt on affair, not wanting to cut up the Oval too much, but the dimensions of the Boxster make that impossible, some of the suspension pick-up points are right in the middle of body areas.

The only way I could dodge the cutting would be to build a tube chassis with the Boxster components attached, but I'm just not up for building a whole chassis right now. Maybe later? What would someone spend for a tube chassis a bug body could be bolted to that has Boxster running gear? Any how many of those crazy people exist?
