A plasma table, bead roller and mag brake? Where have I seen that set up before? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Thanks guys, Happy New Year back @ValcoOscar ,

@76-914 see you this weekend.........no more covid. I will have my new AC system by then. I'm going with a RESTOMOD unit Attached Image

@horizontally-opposed thanks man....I can't wait either.

@tygaboy (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) I don't know...........where? CNC mill and lathe are on backorder (IMG:style_emoticons/default/santa_smiley.gif) Bought a Precision Matthews 940 mill with Acorn CNC controls, and a Precision Matthews 16x40 lathe. Got something planned for the mill since it has the ability to do 3d contour mapping. Got a little dirty trick planned up my sleeve. You're going to love it.

@Andyrew (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) I don't know if its the record but it will have a 63.5" front track and a 63.0 rear track. Attached Image

I'm going to flare out the fenders next. Fronts are +4 and rears are +5 over and above what the 916 flare is. Attached Image Attached Image

I'm building a jig to keep the fenders in exact location so that when I expand them, they will keep the exact location as the 916 but just wider. I will also extend the curvature transversely along the rear hood. In order to do this I will have to make the face of the fender shrink by about an inch. Can't wait to see it sitting with the new meats and the lengthened wheelbase.

Ohhhhh and pretty soon I will do a twist test to see if I got this thing much stiffer than stock. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I just returned from Rudy's and all I can say is be prepared to be awe stricken. IA very humbling experience I must say. I'm not even sure that the trunk lid will remain stock. The welds are impressive as well. Such small, flat "dimes" on thin metal I thought they were TIG welds but they are MIG. Some upcoming metal work will be quiet involved with compound curvatures but I'll stop there and let Rudy reveal when it's time. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

This is beautiful work.... but I have a question.

Looking at this picture:

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads/post-15637-1609872460_thumb.jpg)

I noticed the diagnoal bars on the bottom of the engine compartment. My question is: How are you going to get the engine in the chassis? The inside diagonal bars are in the way of lifting the engine up in to the engine compartment.

The engine drops in from the top. The braces on top are removable, clay.

@76-914 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) Thanks man.......but you're over selling it.........makes it harder to impress. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif) All kidding aside, thanks for the compliment.

I'm moving on to flaring the fenders and making room for intercoolers in the quarter panels. Planning on cutting the 1/4 panel and bending approximately 30 degrees. After I'm done with it, you'll be able to carry luggage in there.

A little look into what the ac system is going to be like

This is a RESTOMOD unit. Attached ImageAttached Image

I will be adding aluminum diamond plate in the footwell area. This is my variation of AUTOCardboard.....sometimes I use foamboard.Attached Image

This thing is super cool. (Sorry, couldn't help myself.)

Do you think it might fit into the stock area in a 914 with a standard fuel tank if the expansion tank and factory fresh air box are removed? Does it get under the cowling?

I think it would work. Even if you have to cut the floor of the firewall to lower it say an inch it will fit any 914. Also, it beats anything out there with all the electronics. It's an amazing unit with electric servos. No wires to control air mix. This is infinitely variable mix too. They have the best billet air vents as well. Installed in this fashion it will leave all kinds of legroom. It's the way to go IMHO.

I'm thinking of using this style of vent Attached Image

Simple answer is no, mocked one up a while ago. But if you don't mind a bit of cutting on the separator panel then yes it will fit, have to move the cowl support or build a new one, and it gets in there just fine. Added benefit is the floor heat venting actually works, for pure A/C it does not matter that much. And the wiper mechanism is out of the way if your worried. Lots of room there just not a lot of depth, you have to pull it over to the passenger side as you have steering shaft going into that area also. One thing I was messing with was moving the blower off the unit to gain a bit more in the packaging space. Can't remember if you lost the washer bottle or not, not a big deal, plenty of Modern VAG cars have remote washer bottles with electric pumps that would fit under the gas tank and keep the fill high. All about packaging.

This build it will not be an issue at all.

Keep rocking this one (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)
