Recipe (quick story)
How to turn a 1985 Porsche Carrera in to a split window bug.
Start with a 911 from 1985 strip the body, cut of all of the body just keep the transmission, the brakes, and all
other mechanical components.
Take the chassis from your favorite 911, lengthen it by 128 mm between the front suspension and the pedal
assembly. Shorten the front (wheelbase) suspension by 80mm before you build a tubular frame around the chassis.
Remove the rear apron and cut out unnecessary sheet metal under the front bonnet. Now you are ready to put the
body of the bug on to the chassis. Next step is to hide the things sticking out of the body by widening the rear
fenders and building a slightly fatter rear apron. Now you are ready to roll!
