Going back in time a little...

i also removed the bonnet seat strips off of the front - and cleaned the rust underneath.
Did you end up replacing them, or leaving them out? How are you sealing your hood?

Use the bonnet seal that attaches to the bonnet not the slam panel.

The original metal strip for retaining the seal is a pita rust trap.

Does that bonnet seal go around the top too? I ordered one for my 69 and it was too short to go all the way around the hood.

no - i removed the old strip along the front scuttle - repaired the rust and then replaced the strip along the top - i had to buy the mexi seal (clip on one) and the standard one so i could trim it and use it along the top

a couple of pics before





First up was new heavy duty floorpans and IRS conversion with 944 Turbo a arms









with this being shoe horned in next!



The chassis has also received a couple of small repairs to the framehead, a hydraulic clutch set up a a bug@5 speed shifter









the clutch MC was fitted through the inspection hole (had to be slightly enlarged) and a hole made behind the throttle lever arm cover for access





i think this is a much better way of installing it rather than cutting a large hole in the top of the tunnel as suggested
have you got any more information about the hydraulic clutch installation.
cheers

yeah Al is right its a saco unit. still havnt decided how to mount the slave - i will come to that soon!

Well i haven't made a whole load of progress over the last 6 months - but hte progress i have made has been pretty cool imo

I've put my 996 seats in and fitted up black sun visors and rear view mirror which isnt exactly exciting but the front suspension has come on abit . The beam was narrowed 80mm back at the begining of the year but i wasn’t happy with the shock towers. I decided to design my own link pin style ones and have them made out of 8mm thick steel. The beam is now finished and together along with the refurbed brakes











Gearbox, steering box and track rods need painting - wheels are going to be refurbed just leaving the interior. The car has been booked in the the trimmers for Jan. The conversion flywheel is currently being shipped from the US and then the engine build starts. Th countdown to VolksWorld show has begun!!!!
