Planned on working on my engine until we lost power last night, transformer across the street croaked and took out power for 10 houses.

I was machining a 911-RS emblem when it happened. Hopefully tonight when I get home transformer is fixed and I can continue the part. It looks like the brake worked for the Z axis since my endmill is not shattered. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

More welding, grinding, fitting, grinding. At the same time we are painting the floor in shop fresh grey. Massaging metal. I used to see the guys at Orange County Choppers cut and weld. I am shit next to those guys. Then I started to try my hand at cut and weld. Picture of me in my welding set up.

I Installed a NRG slim quick disconnect on the car so I can easily change which steering wheel I want use. I had to buy 3 units to get what I wanted. I mounted the extra bases on the wall of my son's room with his other auto decor. The quick disconnects work off the wall as well. Current MoMo wheels are 350mm Prototipo ('79) 370mm misc ('91), and a 380mm LeMans (@'65). It is nice that the horn button clips off with the wheel and no wiring required when wheel is swapped.

I pulled the cover off of the 'BB' this morning, but looks like I'll be putting it back on this coming w/e ... more rain in the forecast (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

We're not getting it as bad as the the midwest or the east coast, be we got about 4" of pounding rain here in the past two days, which is a a fair amount for us.

Wonderful day! Sir Jim came to my place to look at my 74 roller and drove his super beautiful perfect 914-6. Sir Jim told me to jump it to high rpm but nope i will not do that to his 100% restored expensive 914-6.
Thanks sir Jim! for letting me drove your white before and now your tangerine/orange/red.

Big thanks to PMB; going to replace the front rotors, pads, and bearings. Years ago I installed ( with the help of THOMAS ) the 5 lug billet hubs and 911M calipers.

Nice Eddy...I see you were in Long Beach.

I installed new set of Dunlop 205/60/15 on my black 914.

Going to wash it and drive later today.

I bought a new (to me) Telecaster and I'm playing 914 rockstar.....

By the way, that is a Blaupunkt console stereo it's leaning against, so there is semi-Porsche content here.

Still more welding, grinding, fitting, grinding. I wish my welds where cleaner but I have a couple of grinders, One 8 inch one and a small one. Still not easy to put that grinder to the metal. The helps this job out in a huge way. Waiting for the over the top sway bar reinforcement to come in from Tangerine and Maddod.

For those that did not catch early posting on this car it is what looks like from every angle a no rust 74 body that I put Bard Maur super long reinforcements. I have pictures of this car when it was adopted 2 POs back and then repainted from Palm Springs.

I wanted this chassis super strong in case I went for a 600hp engine.

Anyway it goes on and on.

Added a Renshift and OMG what an improvement. Why did I wait so long?

Also added a beverage holder using a sawed off bicycle water bottle cage and an L bracket I had around. Attached it to a 5mm seat bolt. Took 15 mins and it holds very securely. Attached Image
