Got the bahia red '73 running this AM after a transaxle rebuild and various touch ups to the engine while it was out. A friend who is a long time Porsche mechanic helped with carb tuning, timing etc.

Now that is finally starting to "cool" down the AC'ed cars can come back out to play.

Good day today! Terri and I took part in our local PCA region's "New Member Rally." We had the only 914, and one of only two cars from the last century. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

Cold temperatures to start, but the day warmed up and it was really comfortable with the top off the car and the heater barely cracked open. Clear skies, good roads, very pretty scenery, and the car ran great.

Best of all, we took first place in the rally, even though we were a completely analog driver/navigator team. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Total of 259 trouble-free miles door-to-door. Hopefully have a picture or two later.

^ Your car looks great, congrats on rally.

I needed a gasket so I figured I'd dust off my laser which I have not used in about a year it seems.

I am eliminating the water heating port in case you wondered why the gasket did not match all the features.

It is a cheap sub $400 CO2 laser. I've had it for a few years and have not used it much. Decided to get back to learning how to use the thing and make something with it.

The cheap ones like mine come with PITA software and the only way to control the power of the tube is by pushing a button. The more expensive unit can control the power via software.

(I have the orange and white Ten High brand which I paid $600 now that I look at my Amazon orders) After I bought mine the price really shot up.

After bolting on the newly rebuilt front and rear suspension plus the wheels and tires, I clearanced the fenders and dropped it off of the rotisserie. Bolted on and aligned the doors then reworked the clutch/brake master cylinder assembly and flipped the support bracket so my clutch pedal now pushes the clutch m/c directly in front of it.Attached Image Attached Image

My wife finally drove the 914 to work today - trouble free and fun she said. Now need to start getting it ready for the west coast gathering in a couple weeks.

Those are 1/4 20 x 1/2" Chrome Stove bolts. Bought them at Hillco Fasteners in Garden Grove ( they have everything ! ) The bigger plug is metal..

Thks, can find the bolts here but not as shiny as yours. They match your bumper pretty well. Well done

bye
