Zigi's 1303

Post by Zigi » Mon Jan 18, 2010 1:26 pm

Hello fans, I am form Czech Republic (Europe) and I want to transfer little bit my 73" 1303 into German Look.
here is my car now:

Image

I dont know in Europe a lot of producers of good suspension parts, that I find this one in US: http://store.airkewld.com/e-shop-onl...ering-kit.html

- what do you think about this one? It is good option? Do you have any other option in maximum of this price???

- do you think I can use standard fenders, or there is no way how to mount 17" Porsche wheels (7J front, 8,5J rear) under stock fenders???

Thank you very much for help and any suggestions. During January I want to order all parts, to handle it before spring

Some progress.

Yesterday I bought on eBay CUP 3 wheels
Image

7J and 8,5J....I hope they will fit under stock fenders, what do you mind?

The suspension will be complete kit from Airkewld ( Topline front)

+ I found front 944 brakes. Only there I have no idea what will be neccesary for installing them on me 1303 with drums

If you have any ideas, I will be glad.

Hi Zigi.

Nice ride.

On my 1303 i have Porsche Cup 1, 7x17 Et 55 and they fit under stock fender.

In the front i am driving with Kerscher Struts (from germany http://www.kerscher-tuning.de/home/index.php) and Csp (http://www.csp-shop.de) brake system with vented disk and no spacer.

The back is for the time being standard drums drilled to 5x130. Here i have to use a spacer, about 15 mm, as i recall, to clear the inner wing of the car.

I have tried to fit 7,5 ET 52 to the Front, but that was to big.

In my opinion it all comes down the ET on the wheels.

I also see that you want to install the 944 brakes. That is possible. I see you have drum brakes now, so you will need a set of spindels to disk brakes or an adapter.

Most of the things can be sourced on the 2 homepages i have mentioned if you cant find them in your country.

Nice cups.. by the way.

Regards
Henrik

So a small progress.
I just received Maxx Strut
Image

I had to change wheels, rear 8,5 was too wide, so now I have 4 pcs. of 7J CUP3 wheels, which are going now into painting shop.

And I have a nice pair of 944 Turbo front seats, unfortunatelly creme, so they will be redone into black leather.

I will ad more info when it will be bit further then now:(

Very first touch. Rear has to go lower, but that will be adjusted according how low we should go with the front.

Finally new look of 944 Turbo seats.

Porsche brakes all around finally.

The season is over, but I want to be ready for next season from the begining :-)

Are those parts made out of CF, or are they just painted to look like it?
What kind of weights do they have?
Where do you get them from?

They are not a real carbon fibre to be honest:) So special metod of water transfer printing, it is foil with a good clear cote. Everything from one piece, so the look is great, but the weight is normal of course.
