Got my first 914 home last monday...barely had time to look at it becuase of work.... was in rougher shape than the pictures I was sent of it before buying it.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/www.964c2.se-15176-1359817741.1.jpg)

Spec's:

Front glasfibre hood
Rear glasfibre hood
Front GF bumper (cracked)
Rear GF bumper

Rollcage
Old five point harnesses, will be discarded.
Three point belts will be installed (needed to pass Swedish registration)

Rebound adjustable red Koni's front and rear
Springs "140 lb Weltmeister"

Engine overhauled 2001:
"Euro" pistons
Camshaft, unknown spec.
Overhauled heads with new valves and guides
Weltmeister oiltrap
Flywheel lightened 2 kg's
Frontmount oilcoover
External oilfilter
etc....

It's a pretty rough looking car but the plan is to get it registered (ex California car, I got it from 914er-teile in Germany)
and then tear it to pieces and do it right, find all rust, fix it and have it resprayed.
Yes, my projects tend to go overboard.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Thanks (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Today's mission was to pull the rollbar and 5 point harnesses from the car.
Was a bit of a chore getting the rollbar out on my own, had to move around the car and wriggle it up between the sills a few mm's at a time on each side.

Tomorrow I'll tackle installing the 3 point belts and do a list of stuff that needs to be fixed to pass the registration check...

Finished the seatbeltinstallation today and cleaned up the rear vinyl pad aswell since it was quite nasty. Did some looking around and this is what I've found to fix so far.

* Brake lights doesn't work....

*High beams doesn't work, no click from the relay when I pull on the stalk

*Washer bottle non existant, will convert to electric pump system.

*Interior light broken

*Instrument lights very weak, probably a few dead bulbs

*Need both rear rubber grommets that hold the top in the trunk

*Left rear wheel hard to turn, probably stuck hand brake...

more to come as I find it... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

You seem to be approaching it in a nice systematic order. I love white on 914's. Good luck and keep posting.

Ok, I need to be educated on the warmup and idle behaviour of a Djet 2.0
Mine starts up easily with a little throttle help the first few seconds when cold. Idles around 1000-1200 and after half a minute or so the idle raises to about 2500-3000 and stays there, after 5-10 minutes it slowly decreses down to around 1500.

From what I've read the rising idle untill warm is normal but a but too high.
I couldn't find any vacuum leaks with starterfluid but need to try it again since
I only had a few squirts left in the can.

Ok, it's been awhile since I wrote here. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif)

The car passed the Swedish registration after alot of hassles this spring, the "ex-California, export to Germany and then imported to Sweden" caused some greif and worries but it sorted itself out in the end thanks to help from the Swedish VW/Porsche group that helped with some brake certification documents. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)

Wasting no time me and a friend tore into the car, cataloging nuts and bolts and small parts in labeled zipbags and soon we had a bare shell.

The shell has been one trip to the bodyshop for some straightening och rust repair, I also had them weld in a rear suspension reinforcement kit from Tangerine.

Currently I'm working on the surface rust in the center tunnel and working my way outwards from there.

Looks like you are doing a nice job. Can you post some pics of your car dolly? It looks interesting as I haven't seen one like it before.

I was actually marveling how his garage in Sweden doing a restoration project looks just like all the garages here in the States doing a restoration project...some things don't change anywhere in the world you are!

Looks great!
