    Front Boxster calipers to be mounted on early LWB Koni S struts next winter along with aluminum cross bar and LWB a-arms. Or maybe use the adapters for the SWB suspension. The picture of the 3 front brake pads are, M, SC, and Boxster. The Boxster hardware will be changed from clear (silver) and black to yellow (gold) to match the existing hardware on the car.
    The gold caliper is a early 914 front ATE caliper (42 mm pistons) converted to a SWB rear caliper. This has never been done on a SWB car before. This will retain a 1.6 front to rear bias.
    I try as much as possible to find never been done before solutions. It's a challenge but it's fun.

    A triple looper. I'm making one for each side.
    Working on a second one. The Elephant under hood crossover tubes are in.
    The finished coolers connections will be trimmed to connect to the whole system like the 73RS coolers. See picture.

    October was a fun month. The car was featured at a PCA event at a McClaren dealership and the following week at Ed Carroll Porsche for the debut of the 992. Both were well attended. Both sets of pictures were taken early on before the crowds. In the case of Ed Carroll it was a hour or so before the event.

    I made patterns then had them laser cut. I started with outside only then added a middle piece. I prefer 3 piece as I can replace pieces with different designs. 25 mph cross wind at 100 mph is totally planted.

    The unpainted car is another POLO car I'm building for a friend. That's a steel bumper with oil cooler vents. Both spliters are aluminum. Mine is currently just aluminum plate. The other and mine in the future will be hand pounded aluminum.

    I started one of maybe a dozen over the winter projects on my car. Christmas to New Year is my time. I'll be back on the 911E Thursday. I'm installing a IAC valve. (idle air control). Over 9500 feet the 4 50mm throttle bodies can't get enough vacuum to suck enough air in at idle. This valve will be tied to the ECU to supplement additional air via silicone vacuum lines to each throttle body. This is the first rough fit.
