Hi Michael,
My plate is full right now,otherwise I would help you out. Carl at 928 motorsports makes and sells the cross support. I have done this on most of my builds, so chose to make myself.

I have my own bead blast cabinet, so do myself. I clear coat in a high temp spray can by Rust-Oleum, it resists oils and high temps. Your suppose to bake after spraying to harden, but it will harden on its own after a few few weeks. It is a cheap alternative to powder coating.

So I am starting to see my lack of knowledge and reasearch. I purchased RH AG Cup wheels that showed them on a 928. I reached out to Carl (928 MS) to ask about fitment. Carl said rears would most likely fit, but fronts are questionable. I pulled the trigger on the purchase.
Now that I have the front suspension on, I put the front wheel on. The wheel hits the upper arm when full turn inwards. I could probably add spacers for clearance, but this will add a new issue of sticking past the fender. I guess I will figure out a little further down the road.
Front wheels are 18 x 8.5 offset 56mm, lip 1.5"......Rears are 18 x 10 offset 54. With 2"lip

Was not provided any maintenance history on the car. So far everything has looked like it was well maintained, but I am replacing key items that are easier to replace now than later. Just replaced the master brake cyclinder, brake power booster, clutch slave cyclinder and clutch hose.

There should be nothing wrong with your front wheels.

Not sure checking for clearance with the suspension off the ground [fully extended] has realistic meaning.

I am happy to hear you say that. I put the wheels on at the end of a long day and a few beers. This morning I took another look and realized there is no steering rack on and I turned the wheel way past what the steering box would allow.
Thanks

The modified oil pan showed up, so decided to install. What should have taken 15 minutes ended up taking over an hour. The new low profile pick up tube did not have one thing that didn't need massaging. The flange with o' ring had to be ground down for clearance, the tab that bolts on to splash pan had to be reshape for clearance and bolt hole in large. The tube hit the splash pan, so had to remove and grind clearance. The pickup tube also hit the dip stick tube, so pulled tube and shorten. Another issue I noticed is the stock oil pan covers the fly wheel/cutch. The new pan does not cover the area.

Hit a mile stone today. Drilled 5/8" hole is engine cross member and bolted engine in. The only issue I have, is I bought the wrong accessory bracket kit. The alternator should be on the bottom side of the motor. I have seen pictures of other LS conversions that have Alt. on top, it looks like you just need to cut the bracket for power steering line off wheel well and then it will fit (tight)

So here is the open fly wheel area after changing oil pans. I roughed up a piece of sheet metal that will bolt to the back oil pan bolts and bottom bell housing. I need my starter to see how that attaches to shape the piece accordingly. I am curious what other people have done.

I used Cool It by Thermo Tech. Self adhesive backing and has a woven material.
