This is how I solved my emergency brake system.
I used 2 left porsche cables which are connected to the original bus cables mounted in tabs welded to the gearbox support. Left cable goes to the right wheel and visa versa.
PS: Rope was for testing only!

asshole neighbor
rusbus
I have a neighbor who complains to his friends in the city administration about my cars all the time. The latest: my highroof is "junked or inoperable" because the bumper was off, sitting behind it in the driveway. Also one of the tires was off the edge of the gravel, so I'm "parked on unpaved or unprepared surface" Arrrrgghh....

Oh yeah, I do not know if you can make it out from the pic, but the added advantage of using the bracket distance of the beetle is that the A-arms our spaced more inwards thus creating a narrower track.
I needed this so I can remove my 215 rear tyres.

I need to have a spacer lasered to make up the space between the springplate and the a-arm.

Just set the car on the ground to check how it would look.

It has the IRS rear with Porsche 944 arms with the disks, 4" narrowed front train, adjustable, dropped spindles, Porsche 944 disks in the front, Porsche 6*15" with low profile tyres on the front, 215 tyres in the back... All home made!

Still want to mount a brakecilinder with a servo, but I still need to find a good combination for this set-up. If any-one has an idea, let me know!!

I found the solution to my drive axle problem. Turns out that the axle from a T3 IRS arm fits the Porsche 944 arm perfectly!
Now I can use a beetle drive axle on both sides so I do not need to cut/weld an axle.

I made a jig using a T3 rear end so I can place the brackets at the correct beetle distance so it will fit the gearbox/arms perfectly.

Worked out just fine!

Adjustable narrowed beam
Peter - Belgium
I wanted to try something else on the narrowed beam to get it adjustable.

Since I will be driving low I set the lower setscrew slightly up and fixed it so it will be stiffening the ride when I adjust the upper setscrew to lower the car.

Upper is a beetle type of adjusting. I wanted this since it is easy to adjust and can be set at every desired height!

Mounted in the ambulance!!
