Great job Eric, that car is gonna be SWEET when it finished. I took mine for a romp today, went over East Canyon then through Morgan then 84 to 80 home, had a chance to really push the motor and see if I was getting any skipping at high RPM's. I pushed it more than once to over 5K almost 6K. Man my car is running sweet, kept saying to other cars on the freeway, get the hell out of my way. Looking forward to a jaunt to Park City for some refreshments with ya.

I'm envious!!

As you can see... I'm finishing up the trim stage. I have a few more pieces of rubber to get and she should be swinging soon.

PC here we come! We should see if any of those Denver teeners would want to meet in Vernal off I-40 sometime. A trip to Dinosaur National Park would be cool. (take our dinosaurs there...)

Eric,

that would be a VERY fun trip...
when you want to do it...

as a group the colorado people have a hard time with planning.. its probably best to pick a schedule rather than make it a democratic thing....

now if I only had a car that ran.. ha...

Great job and great write up, but I'll never understand putting vinyl on a sports car???? 914's look so nice without it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Thanks all!

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me regarding this.

East Coaster - I like the look with it on better. Especially on a bone stock factory six restoration. I don't think Jim would cough up $19,900.00 if the vinyl wasn't on there (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) Even on my GT project though... I still think it makes the car. I understand the vinyl thing but... hey, that's what they did in the 70's. Me likes it. They had vinyl on them when they crossed the finish line first in GT at LeMans in 1970 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Brandt, let me get this thing on the road and we'll pick a day. Heading out next week to Michigan and won't be back until the 8th. Maybe around the end of August...? Or we wait for Gint... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Eric,

Nice write-up... I second/third/whatever the motion for Classic status.

-Rusty (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smoke.gif)

P.S. When removing the curved piece of trim, the nut on the bottom is a wierd size... M5. Don't lose it. Most auto-parts places won't have it on thier board. (Don't ask how I know.)

I it gets put together, I can find a ride. I got friends in the 914 scene. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)

And Brant is right. When we plan something amongst the Colorado group, we have to just pick a date and stick with it. Otherwise we wouldn't get any events in.

Eric,

when you think of it later and have the time after your trip and all... start a new non hijacked thread about dinasaur... and I'm sure we can get it worked out.

I'll try to get a car running and I'm sure there is a way to hook ginter with one.

have a safe trip..
I love the yellow car!
very nice

Very helpful writeup. A couple of quick questions.

- What spray vinyl did you use? Is 3m Super 77 okay?

- How did you handle the spot where the untrimmed targa bar piece overlaps the space where the sail piece goes during installation? Did you trim the end of the targa ends before installing the sail vinyl?

Thanks
