Engine traction bar

Had a bay window traction bar I wanted to use since it has the correct mouting to the engine... but with my exhaust it seemed alll I could use were the curved ends. All teh rest went into teh scrap bin

IMG_7956.jpg

my new base traction bar

IMG_7959.jpg

presenting it in teh car. My dilemma was where to put teh rubber dampners... in the middle, or at the ends. In the end the cleanest installation was to plce them in the middle and fix them to the engine

IMG_7965.jpg

throughbolts welded in the bar

IMG_7967.jpg

IMG_7969.jpg

and the brackets made

IMG_7972.jpg

with teh end supports welded on... all done

IMG_7975.jpg

All fitted

IMG_7976.jpg

IMG_7977.jpg

still need to re-inforce these triangles so they are solid enough as fixation points

exhaust

other modification needed:

heater boxes did not fit due to the design of the Porsche with teh low body below the seat (where teh beetle has the high section behind the rear seat)

so I had to remove the valve section of the heater boxes and lower the section to make it fit. This also means I will need to recreate this valve section and place it there where teh hot air would enter the body...

reworked heaterbox

and welded the fitting for teh lambda sonde in the collector
