Cleaned the contacts on both sides of the relay board trying to get power to the backup lights. No luck. Looked at the diagram and see the power comes from the brake light switch so I'll check that next.

Did you check the switch on the side of the trans? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Yep, switch works fine. Problem is there is not 12v to the circuit.

Pretty sure the cream colored cars are two different cars.....

I stopped by my friend Trevor's house (our local welder) because he had this '60 coupe out front. He did the sunroof install for a client, the car has a lot of "nuances," parts from different era Porsches in the mix.

He invited me to follow him up to the Porsche Obsolete/Period Correct event in Costa Mesa, nice drive up the coast.

My 914 was the only one there.




Cool...I think I've seen it before



He inspired me

It wasn't today but last week... The wait is over, I got the car to paint shop. It's been sitting in my garage for 5 months after the body work was done.

that is going to look fantastic when the paint is done.

This month is a big push to get the car ready for the road. So lots and lots of little and not so little jobs.

I resprayed the bumpers black as i changed my mind and didn't like them orange. A couple of little pin holes have appeared so something reacted, maybe dust (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) i'll sort that out.

I got the temp gauge and fuel gauge working in the original multi gauge.

The driver side wheel is off as the caliper is seeping fluid from somewhere!

While this is open i've cleaned off the flaky underseal and primed the chipped bare metal. Repaint tomorrow when i get home.

The trim around the engine bay which holds the seals was dented/chipped in places so that has been straightened and painted.

There was a tiny raised spot on the rear fender close to the drivers door handle. Investigation found no rust so that's been prepped for paint. I also found a new dent in the same fender. I walked away then!

Hmmm. Andy, might I suggest a form of public ridicule such as “The Slackers” thread to get you motivated. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

BADASS Meat! Put some new tires on the back end from Jegs.
Toyo Proxes R888R 225x50x15 on Fuchs 15X8 repros.
Looks like same tire can fit on & inch rims too,
but I think Ill have to add the fiberglass flares up front
to go to 8 inch rims.

Um Sir Andy lives in the East Bay and it's the one way up North by Oakland.
It's just a quick 8 hour drive. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

After spending 8 hours working on Toast's car Sunday, I felt obligated to work on my own (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

Got the injectors un-gummed up like a pro...

Also got the engine back together and tried to start it. Now I have squirts and no sparks (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) which is actually good because I might be stupid and try to drive it to Rt66 in 2 days after being parked for 10 years (IMG:style_emoticons/default/slap.gif)

For those that would like to know...
I got the injector pulser off ebay for $30 (All Sun EM276) and the ultrasonic cleaner from Harbor Freight. No $avings over Pro cleaned but I'll use it many more times.

I was referring to the mere hour's drive up to my place for a 'work party' (IMG:style_emoticons/default/slap.gif)
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

I still haven't installed the Renn Shifter, but I need to pull everything out of the tunnel for inspection and possibly perform some minor repairs before installing it anyway (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

My 914 motivation level is also low at the moment - trying to get the Ghia sorted right now so I can put it on the market by summer ...
