Great to see a car built with mods from the bare bones pan and under chasis. Thanks for the pics and the time it takes to upload and remembering to take them each day.

Hi

I notice that your using 2 bolt struts on the brown car, do you prefer them over the 3 bolt? Is that because your fitting 944 stubs?

I find the 2 bolts have limitations with lowering and you cant fit a flip kit to the tie rods unless you reposition the inner tie rod mounting.

All my cars have 2 bolt set up we much prefer that to early 3 bolt, and yes all our cars feature 944 spindles/stubs.

Wow, I thought you were kidding with the brown and orange, that's the color huh? I was thinking it was some sort of base coat or primer! I'm going to have to wait till she's done though, it may grow on me and you have an eye for good color combos so I'll hold my breath.

I'm struggling with this colour combo (esp. the wheels) but these things aren't decided by a committee.
