Nice fitment! I noticed you've got the trailer hitch, what do you pull? Are you keeping it that height for the same reason?

Hey Jason,

I live in very hard circumstances. I have a wife and two daughters. Do you know what women want to carry if they go to a VW-meeting for only a weekend? If I had two boys it would only be a football and a pair of clean underpants, but women want to carry al kinds of stuff, I didn’t even know they exists... So that trailer hitch is for the three most important women in my life. Yeah, I really live in very hard circumstances…

About the height: I changed the front strut too, because I had troubles with the old one. The wheels came of the road surface at some moments. The height with these new struts is equal to what it was. In the old set-up my tires could hit the fenders when not taken carefully a traffic island. And we have a lot of them in The Netherlands. Just have to see how this set-up holds.

I am not going to spend a lot of time on my super, because I still have my unfinished split bus project. The change of the front struts was really necessary. I decided to change the discs and the drums to 5x130 for these Boxters, because this did not take a lot of extra time to do so.

Hard circumstances indeed! Glad to hear you've got it under control! I think you made the right choice in who is your favourite. Looking great anyway.

Do you have pics of the bus project? What are your plans for it?

Jason

Of course I have pictures of my split bus restoration. On www.airmannschaft.nl I have a thread about my spit bus restoration.
My splitty is going to be a “German Looker”, well forget the word looker: It’s going to be 'German'.
Unfortunately it is in Dutch, but there are a lot of pictures.
Thread on "AirMannschaft.nl": http://airmannschaft.nl/site/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=17

Edit: english version: http://vdubheaven.com/forum/viewtopi...875e4fcc77bf00

Some specs:
Ragtop
Safari windows
Porsche 944 brakes at front
IRS with Porsche 914 tranny
Porsche 2.2 litre type 4 engine (brand new with only original Porsche parts, Porsche cooling and DTA
Wheels: Porsche Cup II

A little teaser, my Porsche 2.2 L type 4 at my spit bus:



If any of you have questions, feel free to ask.

Wow that's been a while.

The split screen is finished and - of course - it's a German Look.







It's also featured in the latest issue of Ultra VW:
