Gawked at the new beast in my garage as it sprinkled rain in SoCal this am... Then when things dried up I went down to pay a visit to @Lucky9146 to show off the new purchase.

The whole thing feels very surreal still (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)






beauty and the beast! those are both awesome- just a bit jealous for sure!

those dual tips out the snow plow rear valence are killer!

Drove it to the gym and the to Whole Foods. I had not even started it in over 6 months. I do have a battery cutoff switch; I didn't even have to charge the battery, just started right up. It reminded me of the scene in Woody Allen's Sleeper where the VW Bug starts right up after sitting for >100 years. I gota drive it more.

Finished "striping" my car with mat black 3M vinyl wrap. 6 hours of work with anal attention to measuring and marking with tape, making some paper patterns, soapy water with squeegee application for 4 hours first day on all the upper surfaces, and two more hours next day with water dried up, pressing on the "overlap" and re-attaching the light covers.
Think I like it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

I fixed the oil pressure switch on Elwood and took him for a drive. It is top off driving out today, and I had to go get a battery cable for my truck. I kinda got turned around going to the parts store a mile away and I have been to thousands of times. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

I cleaned up a 2.0L muffler hanger that I got from Ben ( @mb911 ) for new paint, so it'll compliment the new banana muffler I also purchased last year.

Also got word from Mark that 914 Rubber is almost finished making up the tan interior components I ordered for our '71, 'HOWARD' a while back. Changing color since we have no A/C in AZ and the car needs a lighter interior. I'll have pristine low-mileage early black seats & back pad available in the near future (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cool_shades.gif)

Spent the afternoon taking apart a free 1.7 liter block that had the pistons and rings rusted/frozen inside the cylinders so badly it would not turn over. I wanted the windage tray, oil pump and oil pickup from the block.

There was success after using up 2 sawzall blades, a BFH and a chisel to split and break up the cylinder barrels. By the end of the afternoon I managed to get the cylinders broken off the pistons so I could proceed with disassembling the block. Success!

Yesterday I finally got to start digging in and doing some stuff to it...like installing seat belts because there weren't any in it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) Then I finally got to take it out and push it a little.

@Raynekat Honestly it's going to take some time to get used to, it's a 993 3.8 RS spec motor tied to a WEVO'd 915 and holy Fuchs its fast. I actually scared myself a couple times on roads I've carved for 20+ years. My old 2.0 is super dialed in for suspension but you have to keep your momentum up to be "fast"--the new 6 is like having a JATO rocket that just goes and I need more runway. One of my butt puckering moments was on a straight away because the thing was going so fast, so fast. First world problems for sure (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)

Installed new brass rollers for the rear trunk lid. Couldn't find them anywhere online, so a friend of mine made some for me. Thnx Gerry.

We put the front trunk and light covers back on the car. Doing the fine tuning on everything but, the gaps are looking good. A little left to tweak.
Monday, we put the front bumper back on.....

.... oil and filter change, posed for a few pictures some cleaning due to pollen starting already. I am awaiting my stickers(decals) from CarBone. They arrive tomorrow, I also have a few last minute goodies from Mark @mepstein , getting close. I really wanted to touch up the engine grill, so maybe that tomorrow too.
4 more days from Amelia!

Started messing with headlights, got the knock off trucklites, PS side works great, DS side seems like it's not getting but a trickle of power, LED barely lights up where the old Halogen works just fine. Thinking I need to clean up the grounds on the back of the bucket, hopefully that does the trick but I've been out in the garage A LOT so I'm calling it quits for tonight. Got belts in, replaced the wipers and blades, rewired the battery cutoff in the rear trunk and added some hard wired trickle charger connections.
