Got Colors?

Yes the Mexxspeed Ghia paintjob is already done. After 250hrs hard work by ToxicTom and Mexx the finished result is just amazing. ToxicToms artworks and paintjobs are one of the best in whole Europe.

Time goes by

Whilst kids, family and work keep me off writing news, my old friend Mexx put another 2500hours work in his Ghia Racer. The hell knows who gave him the energy to move forward on the project this fast. You may say other racers are built in one year. Thats right but they are built from shopped parts. This one is built from 100% Mexx parts. Still the maxim is “how to modify dam everything…” which was overruled the last years by “how to fabricate dam everything…”

Terminator's wishbone?

Not at all, just Mexx's new Shifterhandle.

Quick release ...

... steering wheel hub extension. Needles to say its lighter than lightweight.




Vertigate Shifter

...mechanics are done. Shifter by itself will follow,
according to Mexx's quote “how to modify damn everything…”

Transmission mods

To make the Porsche 5-speed work in conjunction with a vertical gate shifter it was necessary to get rid of the original single shift rod. The mount was cut off and the topcover was modified to accept three indvidual rods with heim joints.
