Because I am a total tard and cannot get the used to the slightly off to the right 2nd gear location due to the side shifter on the 6, I always ground the gears if I stopped paying attention and thought I was driving a normal manual like my other 2 cars. So I built a quick and dirty blocking tongue using 3” PVC pipe cut 2.5” in length with a cap cut with a tongue to keep me going into second rather the space between reverse and second. Works great and cost $6. It’s anchored with a couple of L brackets. When covered, my abomination of a hack job is out of sight. Looking at the pictures, I am a tard and a hack.

I took the front sway bar off entirely and cut the reinforcement channel to gain inner fender access for the repair and strengthen the weak and damaged area around the sway bar mounts.

I made some templates and fabricated 4 plates to weld in on both sides. I've got a day off tomorrow so I'll weld them in then. Hopefully my new bushes and cables will be here tomorrow.

Finished the vinyl wrap on the 914. Used 3M 1080 film. Not as good as a new paint job but for less than $400.00 in vinyl it's a great improvement, even if it is temporary.

Looks fantastic from where I sit. You should have your own ‘how to’ thread.

SKL1- it's Olympic Blue; original paint I believe except for passenger rear fender repaint. The paint looks good from 15' but there are lots of dings so I don't worry too much about parking. I do try to leave as much distance as possible from other cars.
