I got most of the parts now only thing I need to get is a gearbox for it. Still doing the body work well I'm not I have given up doing it just can not do it myself so my good friend Russ has been coming over when he is free and doing a bit from time from time.

If I can get it into paint as soon as possible putting it together should be ok as its all been mocked up.

Hello Martin,

I'm Geri, I am also building an NSU PRINZ 4L........

I tried contacting you through Facebook recently, I would like to swap information and stuff that may be of some benefit to us both?

Mine is going to be powered by an RX7 13b Turbo Rotary engine running through a Volks Vagen Type 25 Transaxle ( 5 Speed and Hellish Strong!! ) with Porsche 944 rear trailing arms with BIG brakes.

Unlike yours though I am using a " Classic " Mini front subframe for suspension/brakes & steering.

My intention is to keep things subtle & discreet ( for instance I intend to keep the original tiny exhaust tailpipe poking out the back whilst running the actual exhaust hidden beneath the car )

Hopefully people won't think it's anything but " Standard "Huh That is course right up to the moment I start the Engine ! Lol.....

Anyway, get in touch?

Geri

Windows... I had been thinking for a while how I wanted them to look. Wasn't sure if to put all the original glass back in, or go down the Lexan route. Finally I went with the Lexan... Now the next choice was how to fit them into the car. I'm really not a big fan of just welding in a lot of tags. Think it look messy and is not a clean look. So after having a chat with a friend of mine at Spa two month ago. We came up with a plan, well sort of. Sebastian lives in Nice in France. So how were we going to do this... Well good thing for me Seb was coming to race his car at Santa Pod here in the UK. So on the way back he stop for a few days and did the windows for me. He has made a fibreglass frame that goes into the aperture of each window allowing the Lexan to be flush mounted into the car. I think this is a must better way of doing it and the end result is a neater look.
