I can personally recommend the Sheridan body.

Yep that is what I'm going with. I'll see you at the G&R swap meet. Are you bringing your 914 with the Sheridan kit??

Well here are some more pictures of the progress. We have removed everything inch of wire, grommet, tubing, cable. All we need now is the suspension. Building rotiserrie before i take suspension off. My trusty helper is my son. We are enjoying this project immensely. Attached Image

Thank you for the suggestion. Also with respect to the harness, I'm going to have to do a diet on it as I won't be using any of the engine fuel controls. I'm also going to need some grommets as I found it impossible to remove the harness through the rear firewall without removing the large rubber elbow. Also there were some relays underneath the passenger seats that were completely rusted out. I could not remove them without cutting them out. I will be needing a factory manual to see exactly what those relays are for.

I'm also planning on removing the center tunnel and making my own. This can serve various purposes: it makes it easier to re install the wiring harness, the fuel lines, the drive by wire throttle, the hydraulic clutch line, and it gives me the opportunity to install the shifter at the proper height. Also, I have been toying with the idea of bringing a cold air inlet from the front of the car to the rear via this center tunnel. Obviously the cold air/ram tunnel would be separate from the other cables. I could remove the existing fuel tank and buy a cell that fits into the spare tire well. It would be a direct ram of cold air into the cold air box! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) Also the center tunnel would be taller and much stiffer than the low profile one that it came with. This would add additional stiffness to the frame. The Sheridan front certainly has some real estate in the front for various ports to accomplish this. What do you guys think?

Well it has been a while but I have been collecting "stuff" so that I can start and not have to stop too often. I purchased a 2000 996 C4 that was involved in a fire. I am able to use the full suspension, Brembo big reds, jic coil overs, radiators, ac condensors, power steering, power brakes, transmission, axles, pedal assembly. I am purchasing steel flares this week and then I will be able to start work. I will be posting pictures of the German piece of coal donor.

It is going to be a 916 like you haven't seen yet. Top is coming off, steel speedster humps, lowered floor, lowered glass and raked back. Steel cage/frame. I'm wanting to modify the 996 aftermarket front bumper to work with the 914 front an 916 front flares. I'm also removing the front square pop up lights. The real surprise is what I have planned for the rear fender and quarter panel. More to come.

Sounds like a good project... funny, one just sold on ebay (not flared though). If you look you can see the radiator behind the seat even, that's new on a v8 car.

Thanks for the picture but yeah not what I'm doing. That car needs a lot of work. It's not even a 50 footer.

You need that harness up to the 14pin connector at the relay board. The relay board is history.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) There are a lot of threads where people plan what they're going to do. A couple years later we see the roller cut up and for sale in the classifieds. Wish you luck for sure tho.

Whats your plan on using the transaxle in mid engine conversion. I don't think you can rotate the 996 transaxle to run in a inverted posistion. Is the ring gear reverseable like in the 930 boxes. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)
