Absolutely Beautiful build!! It is really cool that you are putting your ideas down in steel! So glad to see new pics and the progress!!

It is an inspiration for when my project gets started, as you set a very high bar for workmanship and detail. so....you suck!!

Thanks

Its always good to hear that you guys like it helps me a lot when I have a builders block and have to figure out how to make a tiny little thing that nobody will ever see but is needed and not thought about before. Like now.
I wanted to use the original engine mounts but the one on the left site does not fit with the roll cage . Need to to make it fit......... Very time consuming

Your project has great design work, I like seeing steel work that curves and flows it adds strength and looks like art. Everything square is boring (I realize not everyone has the equipment to do otherwise)
Nice build.

That front suspension looks somewhat how I design mine.

The Porsche 914 has a similar rack but the tie rods are equal length. You can unscrew the 914 tie rods and VW ones thread right on.

The modified arm is 17,5 cm longer. To prevent Bumbsteer the track rod need this length. Because off the long suspension arms the pivot points are far inside

Today made the mounts for the steering box












For the steeringshaft I'm not sure what to do
Use the part from a 1302 or 1303 or an electric one from an Opel Corsa
