Packed up and ready to go. Trunk is full of small parts (pedal cluster, light bucket assembly, engine tin and linkages) that will get plated or powdercoated later.

I have 5 days before it comes home to sort through the pile of disassembled parts, and evaluate save-repair-replace. I will be looking for a referral for seat upholstery, rubber seal set and minutia like winshield clips. I have access to a local shell for body parts when it comes back blasted and I can see just what I need. I also need to bring the rotisserie back home and make the fittings for the ends of the car...unless someone local to Denver has a pair that will fit my yokes. Good kharma when I dropped the car at the blaster this am...a 914 shell was all freshly blasted sitting there...someone local on the board?

I want to see it when it comes back too...


also I need some tall sidewall 14 inch rims with crappy roller narrow/tall tires to use in the trailer (to clear the ramp in and out..)

are you going to sell those wheels on the car?

I was going to use the wheels as rollers to get through the project and then make them go away. In the near term Brant, call me and I can hook you up with a set with tires on them...tall narrow and nicely patina-ed (dry rotted)...but they still hold air.
BTW...when you an Ferg came up, you said the muffler wasn't correct? Is that true? I wouldn't know the difference between a 911 muffler and a 914 muffler. Can someone please school me?

I don't know how to tell the mufflers apart visually...
the only difference is the angle of the tail pipe...
you should be able to cut and weld your tail pipe to fit the early 914/6 valance (that you don't have yet)

here is one thread:
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?sho.../6+rear+valance

regarding wheels
are steelies affordable these days ?
all I'm looking for are roller wheels with "patina" and cheap...
in fact 15 inch anythings... would give me more ground clearance than 14's

Spent a couple hours going through by baggies of parts and organizing. The chain cover housings on the 2.0 which is getting "pickled" needed a couple studs (missing) so I decided to pull them off to do a repair correctly. Looking at the lip for attacching the sheet metal ...and what do you know? That battery acid is tough stuff!
Attached Image
It ate right though the lip...damn!
I have extra covers, so when I removed it to to the stud replacement, I noticed these...

Race tensioners...or solid tensioners...whatever. Interesting. The PO flogged this thing regularly...not on the track, but as I mentioned in auto cross. And the underside is cone dented in many places as testament. I will show the carnage when it is floating on the rotisserie. Notwithstanding...when I eventually go through the 2.0, I will be curious to see what tweeks the engine experienced over it's life. Same to be said for t-bars and springs etc. Anyway...interesting to see the tensioners. Shows me the PO went through a lot of valve cover gaskets while adjusting those puppies.

Hi Lars, I hope all is well. Nice work again!

I will be looking for a referral for seat upholstery


http://www.autosintl.net/

Autos International. Seriously, if there is a better upholstery shop I'd like to know about it.

They are doing my 914 seats right now. They did a set of 356 seats for me last month. Just amazing.

It does come ...sometimes. Ok where was I, or more like where am I?
The car came back form the blaster and there were no real surprises. Two different kinds of media used, heavy for the inside and lighter for the outside. AS usual, when you think the body has only one spray, you find underneath the paint, areas of bondo which obviously means not only resprays, but also body damage at some point. Here is what we looked like coming home...

I also had the headers cleaned up. These will get hot coated and sold. I have sourced a nice pair of heat exchangers in their place

Here are some of the areas that "came clean"

Very nice chassis. I hope mine looks reasonably close to that when it is done in the next couple of weeks.
