Hello GL fans. I still have the black '75 and its still a lot of fun. But I wanted sometyhing more family friendy. So I bought another '75 1303.

Restored by previous owner to stock specs.


I replaced dented bumpers, installed popout's, new runningboards, TMI Black carpet, Leather Raid steering wheel, electric windowwasher, audio upgrade, H4 headlights, clear indicator lenses, leather Recaro seats, Original Kamei spoiler, lowered suspension and mounted 7x15 rear and 6x15 front original Fuchs wheels.

It looked like this at Spa 2014.










New carpet, oil pressure and oil temperature gauges and head temp. gauge.



Right after the Spa meeting I started on the suspension and brake upgrade.

Front.
KW inox coilover set. Home made camber plate. 944 NA spindle (with hole for speedo cable) with custom bearing spacers. 944 S2 hubs without ABS. 944 turbo '87> brake rotors. 2006 Boxter S calipers on home made axial > radial adapters. 993 Cup-2 7Jx17 ET-55 Goodyear Eagle F1 195-45-17 under stock wing.





Rear.
944 S2 torsionbars, koni yellow shocks, urethane bushings in trailingarms and for torsionbars, 944 NA hub on 1303 IRS. 944 turbo '86 brake rotor. 2006 Boxter S calipers on homemade adapters. 993 Cup-2 8Jx17" ET 70 Goodyear Eagle F1 225-45-17 under stock wing.

How it looks today.







Next upgrade will be a 2 liter type 4 with CSP python exhaust.
