Yes, it is the soapbox cart project...

Today I started cutting out the fiberglass inner doorsills as I wanted to make the innerpart in sheetmetal so I can, if needed later lift off the body from the pan. The rollcage would not allow this if I mount the body permanantly straight to the pan.

Inner parts cut out.



New panels in sheetmetal prefitted.
A square tube will be sitting under the doorsill as support too.



Also finally got the first part of the rearfloor prefitted.
The firewall will also be replaced with a more "original looking" firewall.



Now I just have to cut and fit the leftside doorsillpanels too. After that I can start welding the parts to the pan and fill up in the corners between rearfloor and sills.

Scored a pair of 356 replica wheels so now I can make the 6x15 wheels for the rear with offset 50mm.. The wheels will not look widened from the sides but wider than stock from the rear...



I also scored one set of ITB's from a Kawasaki bike that are adapted to Type-1 manifolds.

Forgot about the soapbox racer. I don't even have the time or tools to cut the buck out!

Very limited freetime at the moment but atleast I got into cutting and separating the center and arch of one wheel yesterday.

Was a PITA as I wanted to save the 5" arch too....

Ok. I cut up the first 6,5x15 MB wheel today. Started by butchering the center just to ease the removal.



Here now with 356 center prefitted at Offset 49mm compared to the 25mm offset on the stock type 5,5x15 to the left.




Also testfitted on car. Might work with a little less offset, maybe 40-45. Got to test some more later.

Hehe!

Yes, The 1302S chassis have wider track than original 356's so the original 5x15 with ET25 don't fit as they are too wide outwards. So I decided to make the wheels even wider than stock but with custom offset. The outside will still look like original 4x15 356 wheels but 2 inches wider inwards. I will be able to fit some fatter rearwheels with this set.

I have the same problem in the front with the Mcpherson suspension... There also the lower balljoint bolt needs to be shortened so it dont poke out too much under the nut. As it is now I cant fit wider than 5 wide with ET42... Would look good with 6 wide and same offset as in rear...

And with that wide wheels all around including IRS + Mcpherson I hope it will handle pretty well even on trackdays in the future...

Finally found one 4 original -59 wheel last week and yesterday I found an other one from -64..
The first is a Kronprintz and the other is a Lemmertz but who cares. They look the same...
This is the Kronprintz.



Still waiting for getting the other one from Sweden...

Here the original wheel compared to the new wider rearwheel..



I just had to pull out the new seats for it the other day...

That was my first guess, but I thought that they might also be some kind of OEM seat.

Now then! Got some small cagetubes corrected prior to start fitting the rearfloorpanels permanently.

Also got the engine and transmission lifted. I modified the rear mount so it lifts 50mm and changed the front nosecone to a Erco Type-2 nosecone, where the shifteraxle is 30mm lower allowing a raise of about 35mm in the front. Engine was thanks to this mod lifted about 6cm in the rear.

The exhaust will still be replaced. I will be building an exhaust that dont limit the clearance to the ground as much as this one.

Before:


After:


Looks way much better now too in profile when the engine don't hang below the bodylines as much..



Rear transmissionmount after modifying.

50mm = 5cm = 2 inches.

The exhaust on the engine at the moment is the type where the collector is pretty low. There are others with collectors higher. I'm planning on changing to one like that and then build the rest myself. Other option is to build all custom Sebring exhaust. But the one I made for the blue bay singlecab a few years ago was pretty loud when reving...

This was the custom made exhaust in the bay singlecab. Either one (loud) one like this or an other custom made less loud one with same exit end...

Kymco makes a nice 181 header that has a raised collector.
