      Thanks
      Here you go homie... mike measured it out...

      loving your work mate!

      Sad to see the floor chopped up on such a nice care...BUT HELL IT WILL BE FUN!
      felt the same way about all the cutting, but i'm sure after my first AWD burnout i'll forget about all of that....

      lol... he definitely spends some money on his projects! as for ideas, my brain isn't that big and is full of ideas already so no more room for ideas... lol.... just execute what's in there now

      thanks for all the comps fellas!

      take care,

      doubt it.... even after all the mechanical stuff is figured out between fitting all the r32 stuff and turboing, he car will be disassembled again to do paint and body work, then put back together..... So its going to be a good minute...


      HOWEVER, me and mike made a verbal agreement at h20 this year that if he gets it completely done by h20 next year, i'll demonstrate something for you guys in ocean city..... So i think him and the rest of the eurowise guys should be motivated....

      take care,

      The euroWise Guys are getting serious now...

      So what i wanted was basicly the entire r32 car stuffed in a rabbit shell... I'll keep the typing to a minimum and let the pics do the talking....

      braced more of the car up to keep everything true...



      notice the modified mk4 subframe... Bolted in place...



      They go from this....



      to this...



      from under the car...



      and finally, a new firewall, and don't worry, there will be a few less holes soon....




      take care,
      nash

      Looks amazing Nash. Seeing you're baby cut up is definitely a crazy feeling

      I have a feeling your's will turn out a little better though lol

      But it begs me to ask, why use your current bunny to do this? From a purely logical standpoint, it would have been much better to just buy a crappy old shell for $500 bucks and turn It into this, instead of tearing apart a beautiful car.
      I think I can predict your answer though...

      PS: I still have my Fuba antenna I bought in like 2002 sitting in a box somewhere

      long time dan! you know you definitely have a place to stay if you make it over to the south.

      old pic from back in the day... miss you all!



      as for the 993. i went looked at a few, but these cars have seriously held their value and couldn't find anything i liked for under $40k. I couldn't justify spending the money only to have it sit in a garage most of the time... I bought my s2k a year ago and have only driven it 3,000 miles One day though

      considering they're basicly mocked up now.. yes

      Ben, it wouldn't let me see the pic?

      As for why this car. I wanted to get another shell since I knew what route I wanted to go with this project in regards to all the cutting... however, a few people i respected said that it wouldn't be the "nashty rabbit" if i used another car and thought it was time for this car to evolve. either way, it does hurt to see this, but then again, its just a car....

      Glad I caught this thread. I figured the nashty rabbit was long gone by now, seems like that build was so long ago. Glad to hear its still around and what an awesome evolution. Looking forward to watching.

      A lot of guys here in Montreal have been doing this kind of floor swap for a long time to put vr6 in there mk1, I think it was the best way to make the r32 swap ....

      looking great,

      What i wanted goes well beyond my capabilities and more importantaly I wanted it done RIGHT. I know what i know and more importantly, i know what i don't know even better..... Having said that mike, doug, ronnie, and the rest of the eurowise guys are very capable of doing what i wanted!

      the way it goes is..... i tell them my ideas and they tell me whether it is possible or not... So far i've gotten more yes's than no's, but after discussing suspension idea's with mike this weekend, i'm expecting a few no's coming soon....

      I'm sure once all the fabricating is done, mike will let me rachet in one bolt.....

      take care,
      nash
