Not IRS chassis..



Next stop the paintshop..
Sanding for 2 à 3 months..

The inside was painted black and than i put the car together at my place..




Back to the paintshop for sanding..


And this was the result after total 4 months work..


Then back home somewhere arround new year 2008...



The start up of the engine failed..
Arround juli past year i sold the 1600 and i bought a 2.0 type 4 engine.
But the engine wasn't in a very good chape.. (it wasn't also expensive)
Then i was thinking, i make my dream come true!
Lets make it a 2.4 type 4... (it toke a while.. almost 1 year)
In mean while i rebuild my chassis to IRS
En porsche 944 suspension and brakes..
A tranny of the later model with stronger differentiel..


Then i had a big problem..
The rims i WANTED... were at the back to wide..

Great build; it should be a good autobahnstormer!

(can I ask why you have a MPH speedo in a Belgian car? Also, what have you done about the emergency/parking brake?)

About the MPH.. it was the only one in the shop, and the owner didn't want to order an other 1.. because this one won't get sold.. The red bug frame is from mexico..
And my friends have american cars cars with mph tacho's..
I think it's cool..
About the handbrake, it's hydrolique (on oil)
It's easy to connect ( i did it because it was easyer to connect with the porsche brakes..
Now with the kerscher rear brake kit, i could use the normaal emergency brake, but i already had the hydrolique handbrake..

Today is the front end ready (adaptors were build for the boxster callipers)

Hi Grtz,

Thank you for the explanation about the speedo. I guess its the same as the kph speedo I have in my Mercedes. Isn't it supposed to read in kph (as well as MPH) in Begium?

I also have a hydraulic handbrake on the rear of the Beetle that powers the main Porsche 928S4 calipers. But I thought it was a requirement Europewide to have a mechanical hand brake as the emergency/parking brake? My hydraulic handbrake uses the normal handbrake lever to operate the cylinder in a similar fashion to yours but it also still has the cables attached to operate the 944 handbrake shoes. I expect that the mechanical part won't do much on mine as the hydraulic circuit will lock up before the mechanical part does when I get around to filling the system with fluid, so the mech system is a bit redundant. It at least complies with the regulations.

Clive

Normaly it's kph, but it doesn't matter.. because, the same reason as the handbrake..
You have 2 choises in Belgium..
1.. you go each year to the controle and LET YOUR CAR IN THE ORIGINELE WAY..
That means, no brakes no engine like we do...
Or 2..
You go 1 time to the controle and than is your car "oldtimer"
And than you only can drive to meetings..
And you can make a testdrive 1 time in the week..
It's a shame up here!!

And my bug is an oldtimer and i can do "any thing a want" because i don't have to go the controle every year..
But if the cops see my brakes and my engine..??
I don't know what will heppen, i think i hear it from the judge!!
