Time to start the thread for my project it's a 1978 Westy Berlin camper van.

I am putting a Red 9 front end with Porsche 944 Turbo brakes the rear end will have Porsche 944 Turbo trailing arms and brakes.

The real fun part is the Subaru SVX 3.3 engine!

Will keep posting

Thanks JP

Latest work modifying the 1986 944 front hubs to fit the Bay spindle.
The bearing races in the 944 hub need to be moved out 5mm on the inner and 3mm on the outer.
Also a 7mm spacer on the spindle to allow adjustment on the taper bearings.


Making the bearing spacers


1986 944 hubs


Slight leveling mod to hub carrier


This will allow the caliper mount to sit flat


911 Turbo disc


Ready to start caliper mount mod
