Anyway, great job! I love the small car, big engine concept and the fact that you are using a monster Porsche engine makes it all the better. I also like the flared fender look on a 914 and will be curious to see how you handle the modified grill to accommodate the engine.
Now that I've said all this, I'll go back and read this thread in detail.

Here's a small sketch of the custom grill for this v8 build; just a top view and a sample of the 3 piece rear plexi glass window

I like it! It's a subtle look and gives only a hint that something different is under there.

Hello all,

A brief update on our end with where we are, and what we've been up to.

We're currently dealing with brake fitment.

We had Cary at ERP custom machine us the front hats to extend the rotor outward / away from the lower ball joint for clearance. Now that that issue is behind us, we've centered everything up, and we'll be moving on to wheel measurement!

Disclaimer:The below pictures are from fitting purposes. Missing hardware will not be missing during final install.

The original hat clearance issue we ran in to w/ Cary's 935 style lower ball joint suspension:



New hat vs. original hat:



Original Hat:



ERP Hat:



ERP Hat clearance:



Caliper fitting:



Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks!
-Matt
