i'm in love! who cares for the purists, this is a car who was in bad shape and there is so much more love and passion in this project than most of their garage queen, 100km on the odometer, cars

Nice, simple and clean.
Just wish that rear seats have a similar pattern with the front ones and will be perfect. Simple mod.
And decide between chrome (rear and front) or no chrome, to define better the car.
Otherwise, Love it!

How does it drive? Corner? Brake? Kermit Upton used to do a lot of 02s in VT iirc, but he used S14s.

I bet this guy is an interesting character...as in 'not the stereotypical Porsche owner' if he shoves his air cooled Porsche project in the corner to complete this beauty.

Not there's anything wrong with that LOL #seinfield.jpg

Immensely detailed undertaking for sure. I love it. It looks absolutely perfectly done...and I bet it's a blast to drive/ride in.

Two huge thumbs up from me.
