the body is not perfect as its a race car
class rules require all metal... no fiberglass
so the fenders were done by cutting, prying, and welding in pieces of metal....  

body could of been smoother, but didn't want to add much filler...

Looks pretty darn perfect to me! You and your dad have done a really nice job. Looking forward to next Spring and some track shots!

Tho I knew you'd been plugging away at a racin' vehicle, I had no idea...........

The digital camera is a great investment for all of us. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Iff'n you have a chance, some close-ups of the suspension bracing would be a big help.....the strap thingy. It's all too Orange for these old eyes to make out clearly.

You'll have to answer to Captn' Crusty for that hole in the firewall, tho. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Many departures from the "normal" oil cooler set-up are cobbled messes. Yours is top drawer.....well thought out and executed......just my opinion (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Are you gonna do 225 tiars at both ends?

Thanks JP, that means a lot coming from you.

225/50 at both ends. (thats what I always ran on my -4 car too)

I'll get you some more pictures.
AJ will probably be willing to sell the parts as a kit if your really interested...

Afraid that I won't be back for 2-3 weeks to my dad's house so those pictures will take a while.

I was real happy with the coolers. Dad spent an unbelievable # of hours making the ducting out of aluminum. We had a friend in kansas who tried something similar but without the ducting... Didn't work for him on track, and he had to start over. So we paid a lot of attention to the ducting details.

Let me try this re-sizing thing....

if this comes through, it is a better shot of the rear engine lid mount holes...

also a better shot of how the cage runs through the dash....

whoo..hooo... look at me Sean. I kinda got it.

Wow, beautiful job!

Your racing group is going to be sorry they opened up the model years to allow a 914 in there, especially a -6. I bet you'll clean a lot of clocks on the track with that car. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Great work!

Great work!

Thanks sir,

I think my toughest competition will come from the 1972 911S' with the 2.4 motors...

There is one in particular that was built by a local race shop (3R automotive of speedvision GT fame) that is particularly well done and will be extremely fast with 8inch wheels and probably 240hp. I hope to have him beat on weight thou..

thanks everyone for the kind words.
Its dang nice and kind of you all.

I am sorry - I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but I had no idea you were building a car woth that level of detail - it is simply spectacular!!!! BIG kudos to you and your Pop. I cant wait to hear the groans from the MG owners who over run that club!

Really REALLY great!!!!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

Hope to see you soon -

Thanks Scott,

I'll get a picture of the engine grill next go around...
(IT'S your grill!)

The club won't let me run with the MG's so It will be in the big bore group with the Vette's/camaro's and mustangs... Plus those 72 911's.

Brant,

Beautiful car and superb attention to detail. What club(s) and what tracks will you be running?
