Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Cheers Phil I really want to get on with it but still working and other projects keep getting in the way
Iím still collecting parts for the later front suspension mainly because I got the struts so cheap!.
the track arms I got on here have kerscher ball joints so I need to get normal ones pressed in
I did consider going 944 early stubs and rotors but I got a good deal on the late disk stubs and Porsche pattern beetle discs and at present I have nearly three full suspension set ups collected
The gas struts I fitted have made a massive difference to how the bonnet lined up so I can now finish up in the front.
I wasnít happy with the Klocken bumper mounts and as already posted had bought a pair from creative engineering they are very very good quality
So the other mount was removed

And the new mount bolted in (I had left the m8 washers on to ensure perfect reference) welded to inner support first

And then spotted to front
I had to move both captive nuts for front wing both were miles out!

While the valence was off I seam sealed stone chipped and painted as itís almost impossible to get above bumper mounts properly with valence on


Spent hours repairing little bits on wheel well before painting
