I don't think of it as 'cutting it up', so much as improving the breed.

I see it just the same way as you V8Transporter!

Funny thing allready about my project is that there have been some purists in the Pre-A community allready whining about me hanging there collecting knowledge about the early pre-A's. Even getting my replica more periodically correct than their so called Concours restorations, and questioning if I try to push the limit and call mine a real Porsche....
I just replied that, no, it will not be a real Porsche ever. It will be better than a real porsche and I even will afford to use it without being afraid to be bankrupt if I scratch it....

OMG! "hanging there collecting knowledge"..... What were you thinking? Stepping on pristine, likely restored by other's, toes. People like that hate it when someone not only steps out of the box, but has the guts, drive and talent to improve it.

Best part is that I have pre-A owners there supporting my project very much too. And thanks to them I have managed to get the connections for hard to find detailled info etc..

I've found that probably 95% of the VW folks I've met are just pleased that you're into VWs.

Yes, I still have it.. But not much have happened... Well, made new slightly taller frontstruts with softer springrate. Now it actually have a suspension at front too.. Dropped it back on wheels yesterday and hopefully will get more done to it in a near future...
Also got the final wheels setup worked out well now..

This is one of my favorite builds on this site. Superior workmanship and will be a terrific finished ride.

Testfitted the Classic Mini wipermotor. Perfect match with pre-A wiperholes! I flipped one of the wipergearhouses so wipers will work opposite to eachother just as on real Pre-A's.
