1303 tube frame in the works

You know, de-chromed, big Porsche rims, Brembos, etc.,... German Look rules!

Currently in Japan. So work has stopped for about on year on the car. Picking up a twin turbo subaru motor over here though so that is going to be the next thing going in.

Man I`ve been away from the bug for a long time now. Picked up the subaru motor.

Also the GTiR sitting in front of it. Polished the valve covers, removed PS, AC, and some other stuff. Been working on the wiring harness.

Refinshed the wheels for the GTiR.

And been enjoying myself at Tokyo Auto Salon.

Japan is an awesome place, the people are really cool. Hope you're enjoying your time there.

I was also wondering what struts you're using, and why you opted for the rabbit steering rack?

Cheers.

How much to get one for my 1303? The frame, not the motor ;-)

A little update. Im just finishing up the wiring and the car is going to get some plates very soon. The frame was a one off. I also put coilovers and my 935 style spring plates on the rear.

NICE :shock:
Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.

Ha ha, I was actually thinking you lived on 16th somewhere west of 176th!

I grew up on 12th Ave off of 248th St, a short little road just south of 16th. To head to Seven Oaks or Sumas crossing or whatever we would shoot down 0 Ave then head north till we ran into the airport. You could have shot your picture in front of the detention center!!!

My parents now live in Abbotsford on the Mission side, so I did the reverse trip this Xmas to see friends on 6th off of 232nd, but it's freaky on icy roads!
