I just installed the LED headlight bulbs from 914Rubber. Now I need to go for a night drive somewhere. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)


Well I went for that drive and what a difference they make. I highly recommend the upgrade. They're on par with any modern headlight system now. Thanks Mark.

Managed to do a little sanding/priming of the quarter panels. I got this thing as a project a couple of weeks ago, and I'm trying to get the surface rust sanded off and primed.

One of the p.o.'s seemed to have gotten a little liberal with the body filler, as the more I sand, the more metal I find. Can't figure whether he was trying to make the fender lips appear more fluid with the body, or was trying to cover up scratches left from what I presumed was a disk sander (even though they aren't that deep), or just wanted to build the panels up to make the transition smoother where he shaved the handles, sidemarkers, and changed the lights (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

It's also possible that I have no idea what I'm doing (IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif) Attached Image Attached ImageAttached ImageAttached Image[attachmentid=615

Keep up the good work and keep those fresh sanded areas primed ASAP,my own car had a high end bare metal repaint when I bought it and the painter was a little late in places so I have surface rust coming up under the paint (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) .

Finally got around to installing Marks rear bumper top. Nice fit. I had installed the front last month.

Then I finally got off my ass and onto my dying feet and made this little roll around fixture using an old furniture dolly. This is my spare engine that's been hanging off the engine stand for a year. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chair.gif)

First job was to rebuild the 2nd front caliper. Job done.

Second job was to make a spacer for the alternator back plate. I still wasn't happy with the clearance inside on one of the + nut tab so i cut a small section, bent back and welded in a small filler piece. Now i'm happy with the clearance.

Third job was to fit the fuses and connect the battery for the first time. Quite pleased that no fuses popped. There are a couple of gremlins to resolve but as there are a number of wires still not connected i'm not bothered about those just yet.

Next up is to make the alternator wiring loom and make the extention for the relocated fuel pump to the front of the car. Once that's done i can start the engine for the first time!!

Hello

This morning I woke up to the smell of gasoline coming from under my 914

I pushed her out of the garage and noticed my fuel pressure regulator was leaking badly

I clamped off the fuel lines and removed the regulator

Ran to 3 autoparts stores and found it finally

Installed and shes up and running again!

I also had many hours into trying to get those fender lips to look right. using a rounded bondo spreader helped, as did using a cut off piece of broomstick with sandpaper wrapped around it.

Trying to clean up around here a bit - I've received numerous parts shipments that were well packaged, but now that they've reached their final destination, they could be condensed with other 'like' parts to take up less space. At the moment, this goes for both, 912 and 914 parts ... and more are on their way here soon.

I'll start on the to-do list for the 'BB' this coming week (as shown in post # 9216) http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?s=&...t&p=2515785

I think I have everything to do it handy (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif) ... except I don't know how much fuel is still in the tank, and if I have enough containers to catch it all (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

No (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) ... I already have enough on the to-do list, and it's shifting fine at the moment ... I'll get to that after finishing everything else that's on the list (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cool_shades.gif)
