Thanks for all the kind words guys.
I knew not everyone would like it, but I wasn't building it for anyone but myself.

No. It *decreases* caster and I'm not even going to mention what that 5* of rear neg camber does to stability.
If I wanted to build a race car, I would have. I wanted a lay'd out Pre-A on Fuchs (5.5's and Nor Cal King Crabs) that I could cruise around town in, so that's what I built. I may go racer car with the rusty one.
The response I got from the VW Classic this weekend was ridiculous. More praise then I ever thought and the crowd of people that swarmed around it everywhere I took it was justification to me for all the long hours, headaches, bumps, and money spent to get it there.
Now that I am home I will fine tune it a bit and drive it as my daily before I get crazy with a restoration.

I'm real curious to know how your slammed and dropped Pre-A rides, on normal streets, at speed, etc. Also what is the effect of the cambered/decambered rear wheels? Thanks for a response.
Rides like your typical lay'd out VW which is fine / normal for me anyway. I'm a little different then the typical Pre-A owner I guess. I didn't downgrade from a 911 into a poor handling outdated suspension Pre-A, I upgraded from a VW to a Pre-A so the ride, stance, camber, etc. is fine with me.
I'm sure I'll have it out in he Phoenix area for one of the VW shows at some point. Find me and I hand you the keys so you can take it for a spin.
