So, last year I picked up Ugmo. After a short stint, Rich D. came up with this car. As it already had a lot of what I wanted to do to my ride, I talked to Rich and we traded off Ugmo.
Let the cutting and welding begin.
We would need:
new floors welded in
cut off the remaining fenders
GT kit welded in
Media blast
primer

The eventual build would have
Fiberglass fenders, hoods, rear bumper
suby motor
Low maintenance
easy for the wiffy to drive
Lets begin

so, I decided I could lose some more weight. I am redoing my side intakes and going to punch out my hood hinges and cut off any necessary metal.
Next.
Finish new side intakes
Hood pins
fit rear bumper... should be here today!
put doors back on for final fit
prep air dam for special projects
final body work
sand...
Maybe more, who knows..

I'm not a fan of side air intakes, but that's looking awesome!

Posted by: gothspeed Mar 9 2012, 11:33 AM

Wow smile.gif!!! Does the lizard skin need carpet or paint to protect it? or is it robust enough to stand on its own?

I am considering second skin audio butyl mats or bedliner with carpet over it or something like this lizard skin.

Your experience will be much appreciated! smile.gif

Posted by: jim_hoyland Mar 9 2012, 11:48 AM

Looking good ! smile.gif Thanks for shaing. I like the side air intakes. The aftermarket convertible 914s had those, they located aft the door handle, IIRC

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 9 2012, 11:50 AM

The final texture is just like rhino lining. I am sure it would stand up. But, the nice thing is you can paint right over it. I will probably add some sound material to the low spots just to even out the floor as well as the back panel.
There are 4 layers on the fire wall. Two sound and two heat on each side. Only two layers of sound and heat on the floor.
my rear bumper just arrived. But, I have to go do some work downtown. Maybe a mock up later today...

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 9 2012, 11:51 AM

@ Jim, yes, I almost did the same. But, given the size, I had to drop them down a bit. They have 3 inch intakes behind them. Same with the NACAducts. The brake intake are 2 inch.

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 9 2012, 11:52 AM

And now my doors are back from the sand blasters. primer and seal as well....

Posted by: gothspeed Mar 9 2012, 12:14 PM

Thanks for the info effutuo101 smile.gif!! I think I will put some deadener mats on the big flat spots, go over everything (including the mats) with that lizard skin then paint it black.

You are doing a great job man!!!! beerchug.gif

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 9 2012, 12:38 PM

@ Ferg! pray.gif
any new projects?
@ goth. spray lizard skin first. then put on matting. it must be sprayed on primer or paint. Jeggs has it cheap. the gun is really cheap. Also, for what you are doing, you might want to find somebody to go in with you and share the product. It comes in 2 gallon containers.

Not really. It depends on how you adjust the fun. It goes on a lot like Rhino with a serious texture. Not smooth like paint. More like a textured wall in your house.

nice work chris, how did you attach the fiberglass to the steel? i see the clecoes, but i asume those are for alingment of the panels...

Posted by: Socalandy Mar 9 2012, 08:47 PM

Very cool

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 10 2012, 07:21 AM

There is an adhesive that has to go on bare metal and the fiberglass. I will ping Jon for the name. Once set it has to be ground off. It has a dual piston calking gun that mixes the chemicals as you pump the trigger

Posted by: PeeGreen 914 Mar 10 2012, 11:19 AM

I don't recall what it's called. One of my good friends that runs an autobody supply shop told us what to use for this.

Posted by: Gint Mar 10 2012, 01:46 PM

That's killer Chris! How ya doin?

Posted by: westtexass2k Mar 10 2012, 02:54 PM

Your car is looking good. It looks like my car has the same fenders that you are using. I didnt install them but car had them on it when I bought it. What size wheels are you going with? Look forward to the finsih product.

I used Lizard skin on Lotus 7 replica and it works great. It is fairly durable as well. Its nothing like bed liner material as far as abraision resistance but should work great where you applied it. I was going to use the Lizard on my project as well since I have it left over from the Ultralite. It defenitely kills the noise. it will drive like a new car.

I think Panel Bond Adhesive is what you are talking about. It is seriously strong stuff. We bonded a couple a 16g pieces together to test it and put it in a frame machine and pulled it. The metal tore but not at the bond.

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 10 2012, 05:07 PM

Hiyas Gint! Good! Busy. How is Shar? Hope all is good on the snowy front.

Posted by: mrbubblehead Mar 10 2012, 05:42 PM

thanks for the info on the panel bond.....did you take any detail photos of the attaching?

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 10 2012, 07:10 PM

I didn't. But, once you have everything fitted up, you lay the adhesive on both sides, clecko back into place and wait. in about 8 hours, you won't be able to get it off. Pretty neat stuff.
If somebody hits the fender, it will be me with a grinding wheel to get the material off and replace the fender with the same process.

Posted by: raw1298 Mar 10 2012, 07:53 PM

I used the same stuff on my flares. Works great and easy to use. It seals the metal too, that is why I used it.

I built lighter intakes this morning...more glass work to do on the fenders now. but, in all I lost some weight, so a plus on that.

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 13 2012, 10:15 AM

Refitting intakes yesterday. Just a couple of minor modifications and then ready for final prep on rear and front fenders.
To do:
sand 2-3 mm off of rear deck for correct fit by lights
measure and drill rivet holes for side intakes
finish primer of doors and front bumper
final fit of rocker covers

later this week.
install hood pin mech
fit mirrors and prep
door handle check and prep
Media blast eyebrows, headlight covers and primer
Media blast intake and paint
Paint headlight brackets and misc parts

Next week
final prep and paint of NACA ducts and intakes
paint mirrors
So much to do!

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 15 2012, 08:48 AM

As long as she has legs a little bit of bedunkedunk in the trunk is a good thing...my wife said that 914's must have junk in the trunk. She likes certain colors in a narrow body, but, for the most part and for us...it must have much back.

I got them bot from "dreamers" (local hot rod shop). I had the hood pins powder coated satin black. I will post the details when I go back down stairs tomorrow.
The mirrors are composite. You shape to fit your door.

hood pins are Eddie Motorsports. they come in a textured or smooth finish and can be powder coated.

so, I did it. I cut apart my dash last night and laid some glass. Here is the rough mold. Still have to finish the sides and tie it all together. The rest of the dash will be modular so pieces can be taken off.

an oddly strange day at work. Took my lunch hour and did some work.
I got the glove box roughed in. left needs to come out about 2-3mm. Then straighten the edges of the box and loose some mass. This spot had a problem in my casting...
Then final fit, hinges, smooth it out, and put some felt in it.
just enough room for two pair of sunglasses, a small package of tissue, and registration/insurance stuff.
In the end it is about 7 inches deep. no where near the cavern that was stock, but, it also doesn't hang down below the dash.

Looking good Chris.
Nice cradle, hats off to Ian for that.

It looks like you will use the Subaru gauge cluster? If so, your tilting column will help you get it in and out.
Were you able to maintain the same arms length to the wheel? Using the WRX column, that was a big challenge for me. popcorn[1].gif


Posted by: effutuo101 Apr 24 2012, 11:33 AM

Thanks,
No, not a suby cluster. gauge cluster on window pillar and looking at different options for speed and tach. I found a HUD for about 100 that has speed, tach, shift light, temp and low fuel light. So, the space may be just for a couple of gages or be eliminated all together.

Posted by: effutuo101 Apr 24 2012, 11:35 AM

so far the steering will go closer to the dash than stock and come way further out than the stock. So, I think I may have to get a seat in and check.
But, yes, my biggest complaint has always been the steering wheel getting in my way of getting in and out of the car. This should make that a non issue. I will probably also go with a D ring once I get everything sorted.

Ordered a small fortune of stuff from the Bird for suspension bit. Ball joints, rear wheel bearing, trailing arm bearings
Ordered turbo tie rods and boots

Worked on my cousins Vespa P200 while waiting for my car. Pretty much have it sorted out. I will finish up hammering on the body tomorrow evening. Get it filled and in primer.

Next, book my trip to LA.

Intakes are in the hood and under the car. The radiator will be in front of the motor in the car. There is about 9 or 10 inches there with the shelves cut out.
The side intakes will feed the intake.

Chris,
I like how clean your fiberglass projects have turned out. What is the process you are using?

Dave

Posted by: effutuo101 Jul 27 2012, 09:13 AM

Thank you. For the most part I have been building shells with heavy construction paper and wax paper. Then hand laying glass and doing the fitting and sanding to get it perfect. Then one more layer of glad to get the form rigid.

Posted by: arkitect Jul 27 2012, 09:36 AM

So for example your glove box you made. Correct me if i am wrong...construction paper for the box, then place the wax paper on the outside, then resin and fiberglass.

Then you can peel off the form from the inside?

Dave



Posted by: effutuo101 Jul 27 2012, 11:05 AM

correct. the fiberglass resin doesn't stick to the wax paper. The only complex part is the scotch tape to have it all stick together. Fiberglass doesn't stick to that either, so, once you pull the cured glass form, you may have to dig in and remove the tape. Usually not a big deal. Then sand it out smooth and start fitting the item. I did learn that if you have a very complex shape to make it in two parts and glue it together. once you have the final shape, you can lay the last layer of fiberglass and be done with it.
The important part to remember is that all of these parts were one off, so, I had no desire to create a "buck" for a multiple product run. But, once you have a finished piece, that can be used to create the proper mold. From there, you can really thin out the weight and create a very finished product straight from the mold.

Yep, between the move, buying a new garage space with a side of house(and all of the durable goods you need), job and carrying a couple of house payments for few months, and a bum knee, my project got sidelined.
It is really odd to have enough room to walk around my car with crutches and not have to crab walk!
On a positive note, I just picked up out fronts alternator bracket and got that installed as well as my intake.
Believe me, the tires are important, but I have quite the laundry list to get done before I worry about shoes!
Updates within the next few weeks I promise.
In the meantime, I am reading everybody else's stories and being jelous.

Just went through your whole thread, car looks fantastic, great work, cant wait to see the rest.

When you glassed on extra bracing to your front lid, what was the material you used for the structure? and are you letting all of your FG parts cure at STP? or in vacum bag? Also what are the front air ducts supplying air too?? i read the rears supply air to rear brakes...but fronts?

Thanks! keep up the good work!

Posted by: effutuo101 Mar 18 2013, 11:08 PM

Hi, the bracing is Balsa and fiberglass. A thin piece with a couple of layers of Glass does a lot.
The hood scoops are for my radiator. I am using the heat tubes to channel additional air.
The big scoops on the side are for the intake and inter cooler.
I hope to be up and running by late fall.
My to do list:
fuel tank and pump
Gas, brake and clutch cluster and plumbing
Seats and interior.
Turn/brake electronics
Gauges and finish new wireing loom.

I just finished up making a new set of front turn signal buckets, so it is time to finish thos up and order the front and rear lenses.

Will you have enough cooling from that position? I was going to put mine up front with the radiator. Other than the length of hose, is there's down-side to putting it up there?

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 2 2014, 09:34 AM

With the holes cut through the trunk floor, it should be good until I go higher than 400 hp. That little fan pushes some serious air. 10000cf per minute? I will ask the genius behind the design.

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 2 2014, 09:37 AM

If you put it up front, you will just have the extra weight of the tube/fluid. You may also have to put in a burp valve as the system is so low.
Realistically you can put this anywhere as it is dedicated to just the air system and doesn't mix with the hot fluid system.

Did you seriously bake those in your oven? LOL

Back to the intercooler...

I was thinking about mounting mine in the rear drivers-side wheel well, like where the oil cooler was on a 6?

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 7 2014, 08:38 AM

hey! something about port in a storm? I can't tell you how many motorcycle parts I have baked over the years in my oven. Wife not so happy about that! but, hey, she loved the end product... Besides, that was happening north of Seattle and I live in So Cal now. biggrin.gif
Anyway, Yes! The great thing about these is that since they are completely separate cooling system, they can go anywhere. I looked at the drives side well initially, but decided I had other plans for that area (pull additional air for the radiator with a 4 inch in line fan for instance).
That should look nice and flow well. you can push air around where ever you want! A little glass work and you can make a really nice tidy package.
Most of this stuff is way over done. That way I can do relatively simple upgrades to stuff to get more out of it. For instance, I will probably do some bigger fuel rails after I am up and running (I already plumbed the fuel lines to handle a lot more fuel).


Posted by: CptTripps Jan 7 2014, 08:55 AM

Intercooler: That's going to save me a LOT of time and energy. I think that's the way to go.

Radiator: I want to glass something nice up so I can use that front trunk for a spare tire and maybe some luggage if I need to.

Fuel Rails: Yeah, I'm way ahead of you there. I have a set of billet rails (2 actually) and I have the whole system plumbed with -6AN fittings and stainless braided line.

What bushings/mounts did you use with Ian's cradle? I hadn't even thought of that until just now.

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 7 2014, 09:07 AM

nice!
as far as bushings and mounts go, the ones Ian supplied are the ones I used. I have one of the first cradles, so, mine bolts straight to the block. That may have to change depending on the amount of engine vibrations that come through.

From a fuel rail stand point, yes! I am AN8 to the fuel rail and step down to stock and then back up to AN6 for the return. So, lots of room to play there! Nothing like brushed aluminum and color to spice things up.

Looking forward to seeing your motor back together soon.


Posted by: CptTripps Jan 7 2014, 12:48 PM

It's getting there. I should be able to bring the motor back to the office in another week or so. I'm going to spend quite a bit of time getting the trans and everything else fitted to it though. It won't see the car until late February.

Posted by: CptTripps Jan 15 2014, 08:25 AM

Adding LEDs is SUPER easy. I have a kit I'll send you if you want. I bought an extra. All you need to do is hit the mirror with a heat gun, remove the glass, tape these things into place, and then replace the glass. The LEDs shine through really easily.

Ok, So, work, life and everything got in the way and it is finally time to get going.
Engine harness, relay's and computer are ready to pick up.
Also ready is my re enforced and shortened (by 2 inches and steel plate added) oil pan. Then S&S will come down and make final measurements and make braided oil and water lines for my turbo and provide me block off for unused holes in head.

To do:
add oil to motor and trans.
get AN fittings put on the fuel rails
Get half shafts completed
New exhaust built (the current one hangs down to far) to the turbo.
Front brake pads and retainers

Start car for the first time...ever.

Coming soon:
new rear adjustable shocks
Peddle cluster
bleed out brake and clutch
finish up throttle cable.
Finalize turbo back exhaust
Gauges and pod.
Cooling system

This should put me at a point where I can at least drive the thing.


blegh. It is all money now.

hmmm, a few parts showed up today!

Old vs new oil pan depth.

Time to get rid of my old (brand new) exhaust and get a custom header.
If you are running the newer version of Ian's cradle that uses the stock engine mounts, the engine sits a bit higher, the exhaust should work great. PM me if you are interested.

Sorry I missed this. There is a 3m bonding agent that I used. Any quality auto paint shop should have it. Also a lot of klecko pins to hold everything in place.

Up on the truck and off to get exhaust

Unless you have masochistic tendencies, that was probably a good idea. Took me 4 tries and 2 entirely different systems to get the exhaust the way I wanted it. Looking back, I dodged your setup because of the exhaust work but now I believe it might have been easier, although more costly, to install a turbo'd 2.5 with that single tail pipe. Very nice work thus far. beerchug.gif

Posted by: effutuo101 Jun 6 2016, 06:54 PM

If I wasn't concerned about the noise, I could have gone with a single side exhaust, with just a resonator (still below 90db). I would have probably walked away for about $250-300. Doubling up actual mufflers and a jointed Y pipe for ease of maintenance and black tips is what made this a bit more spendy. Although it won't be as quiet as I want, it is being built with a bigger turbo in mind. Trade offs.

That's the nice thing about a conversion. Anyone can drive your car. No more pre-drive conversations of "do this, don't do that". After I got mine sorted, I handed the keys to my BiL and told him to depress the clutch when starting and to drive it. He's 70 and loved it.

Nice! Where did you find those center console switches?

Ha! West Marine. The come in grey and can be painted.

Blue sea will build to specification and color if you want to.

There be clutch and rear brake pressure! I don’t know how many years since the car last had brakes as I got it as a shell.

Posted by: Amenson Dec 18 2017, 08:24 AM

Keep up the progress, the beauty will be on the road in no time.

Cheers,

Front brakes installed and pressure tested. Still have to get them rebuilt, but it can’t go to get dyno work with out brakes.

Next x fuel level sending unit and evaporate tank.

I'm looking forward to the finale! I finally got my 914 dialed in quite well. Hopefully I can keep her running longer and drive her more this year!

Thank you Rich for the fuel level sender! I so owe you!
One step forward two steps back! Finally back to where I was a month ago.
3 more boxes of stuff sorted through and either put in play or repacked for a future day.
Nothing more I own will go on the car. From here on out is it fabrication time. And all motor/cooling related.
Post build list is being thought about.
1. Have Eric refresh all brakes ( just to be 100% on them.)
2. rear cross drilled disks
3. cross drilled vented front disks

It is really odd seeing the car on the roller jacks and not be missing any pieces...

Rear brakes ordered.
Battery location changed. Battery tray mints, new cables run, cables connected.
Transmission oil done.
Removed oil heater and installed filter.
Removed collant lines that ran to the oil filter.
Engine oil done.
A few minor odds and ends that I am waiting for from the welder. Then fuel and coolant.
Swapping my side intakes and mirrors.

Almost time to pressure test all fluid systems.

A couple of bolts and fix the alternator plug wire.
Fuel system final check, gas guage final wiring for sender and low fuel light.. Fuel and coolant filling and pressure test.
Final nut and bolt for all go systems.
Final wiring check of all systems.
Swap out rear brakes with my new PMB ones and bleed.

What am I forgetting?
To do: dyno, put hoods back on, Alignment, mirrors, sea belts, plates, insurance... I have to be missing something.

Hi Gint and Shar!
We are about 15 minutes east of downtown. Usually low 80’s, but that all depends on the Marine layer.
You headed this way?

I forgot about boot camp in July and August, 1984. I spent the entire late summer and fall through December in A school as well. I was just looking at the weather history because I remember it being hot. There were a couple of days in September that it was 90+ (99 on 9/8). Abnormal...

We're looking for a summer vacation destination. We'll check hotel stuff and get back to ya!
