Getting going again on the build now that my Mendeola suspension is arriving. It changes the front suspension from the 1930 era Volkswagen Bug front suspension to a modern A-arm suspension with swaybar, coilovers and rack and pinon steering. The rear suspension is a set of custom tube trailing arms with Uni-Ball that replace the 944T units and are 2 inches longer which helps move engine transmission weight forward for better weight distribution and handling. Will post Mendeola pictures when the suspension arrives in the next couple days. Right now the chassis is on the operating table to remove old suspension front and rear.

A brief overview:

Tube frame

**Porsche 944T rear suspension with MBT Uni-balls**
This suspension is now being replaced with a Mendeola Signature Motors custom suspension.

Coilovers shocks front and rear
Recaro Profi seats, Hans driver
Porsche Boxster S brakes, Performance Friction 2 piece rotors front, OEM rear
TRM F2 Wheels 10X18 Front Falken RT615K 255/40/18, 12X18 Rear 315/30/18
**996 Turbo Wheels and tires in first photos***
Porsche 930 transmission, cvs and drive shafts
