Gen II frames will be available summer 2008. 
We're working on a Gen I based car for the Spring show circuit.


MEKK Gen II Neon Frame

The Gen II Neon Frame will be substantially the same as the Gen I frame.
Major differences are needed in the frame to donor sub assembly due to
changes in motor mounts in the Gen II.

MEKK's Gen II Neon frame allows a 2000 up Dodge or Plymouth Neon
to be used as a donor vehicle to power a full length VW based kit car. The Gen II Neon
frame kit comes with a strong 2x3 inch rectangular steel frame, adaptor brackets
for a Gen II Neon front clip, grade 8 bolts and nuts for suspension brackets, and an excellent instruction/assembly manual.

Our current offerings are for donor vehicles with automatic transmissions. Why?
Because the cable shifter used in the Neon has issues even with stock length cables.
We've had shifting problems when extending these cables the additional four feet
needed in a full length vehicle. We haven't given up, but we don't want to sell you a
problem. So, for now, we're offering auto only kits. 

Optional parts include:

Front disk brake kit
    Rotors and bearings to fit our stock VW suspension 
    Brake balancer
    Rotor stud patterned to fit stock Neon wheels (Spacer Available)

Front suspension
    This is a Brazilian made, adjustable, VW suspension. These come without
steering boxes because we recommend you use the donor rack and pinion unit.
The Neon rack and pinion unit is much stronger, has no kick back, and has
an appropriate steering ratio for a street car. It also bolts up to the Neon
collapsible steering column (of course!) providing you additional crash safety.

Floor
   
Ribbed floor panels with cross support bar. Many builders will choose to use the
donor's floor panels. These panels can be welded or bolted to the frame. Welding 
is recommended. [Out of stock as of 8/15/07]

Seat Mounts
    These seat mounts are recycled Neon seat mounts. Most builders will use the 
donor's seat mounts (tracks). But if yours are damaged or missing we can supply 
them. We buy them locally, sand blast them, prime them with Dupont antirust primer 
and enamel them gloss black. You can do the same for less, depending on the supply
at your local salvage yard.

Power Steering Hoses
    Even if you use the donor's power rack and pinion unit, the stock hoses are several 
feet too short. You can get hydraulic hoses at your farm supply store or roll your own 
using bulk tubing (the correct fitting can be difficult to find). Using the proper hose type 
is required for safe operation so don't try to go cheap here. Or, you can buy the 
complete, correct length hoses with the proper fittings from us.

Special Width Front Suspension
    Most kit cars use the stock VW width. Some use radical offset wheels to widen the 
track width. This isn't a good idea as it destroys the stock bearings pretty quickly. 
Handling may be better than stock but it isn't as good as it should be. Wheel offset 
should match bearing design. Our standard suspension provides the standard VW 
track width using standard FWD wheels (matching the donor). Our bearings are 
designed for this wheel offset. If you need a different track width or want to use wheels 
with a different offset please contact us. You will also need to replace the donor vehicle 
wheels and possibly the bearing assembly. This ain't necessarily easy!
