Very cool, and a nice story too!

You must be a plumber considering all the hoses and fittings you have to deal with!!!

Awesome.

Looks great!
Just a few question. How is the turning with the calipers sitting on the front side of the wheel? Any hitting the torsion arms?
Did you weld a 944 spindle to a CB spindle? Are those 86 T brakes? Narrowed beam?
I'm in the process of doing something very similar to my 64.
Nice work!

Oil Tank?

Hi, is that a oil tank behind your rear seat? If so, is it vented to the inside also?

Hi

What a transformation, well done.

Are you using the A1 headers with your turbo?

Hi

That would make it much nicer off boost, do you have any photos of the turbo pipe work after the A1s?

Awesome project, I'd love to see some hp numbers

You run out of room quick when you add a turbo, but I do like the way the A1 setup looks. I don't think there's enough room on my car to mount the turbo there.

Love how you integrated the water tank, but wouldn't you have gained a lot more volume by putting the filler at the top?
