You should keep the luggage rack. It will set your car apart from the other GT clones... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

The rear LH side had been in an accident in the past taking damage to the front fender,door and rear quarter.Before we graft the flare in, the door was metal finished and the front section of the rear quarter panel replaced with freshly made metal along with the door handle depression fixed and grafted into the new quarter.

Just clear coat the thing when you finish, that work is too nice to cover with paint.

Awesome work. Very, very first class. I thought was looking at an early 356 resto. It took me a minute to remember what site I was on. Im excited to see someone do work at this level on a 914.

Wow. Are you lead-ing over the welds?
So how many hours on this build? I see you have 320hrs on a 356 in your blog.
Roughly 100$/hour this is going to be an expensive build???
Also, how do you keep the surface rust off all this bare metal?
