Your garage door caught my eye. Looks like a sub-zero insulated bi-fold door? Something tells me your garage is toasty warm in the winter. Also, is that an LED light that looks like a comp monitor from the rear in one of those pic's? An L-80E 914 might be considered camouflaged in Sweden, no? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

I dont know about toasty warm, keeping it around 18 degrees (65F) so I can work without getting to hot, when doing paintwork I usually put it up a bit higher.

You mean my worklight standing on the floor? it's one of these things with a strange megabulb in it, http://biltema.se/ProductImages/35/large/35-9570_l.jpg

Well since she wont be a winter driver anymore the L80E will come off when its time for paint to be replaced with something else.
(the agony of choosing a colour!)

I've updated my homepage with the lastest progress (http://matsgarage.com/)

Here's some questions thats popped up during the hours spend in the garage getting brainwashed by christmas songs on the radio.

I'm thinking of removing the jack concoles on the sills for a cleaner look. Since I dont have the original jack and probably never will get one. Yay or nay from a structural point of view?

The plastic clips the keep the windshield trim in place, are they available to buy somewhere? And the plastic small square things in the top of the windshield frame what are they? drainage canals?

And this is what it looks like under your rear lifting points... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)

You can get the clips for the front windshield from 914rubber.com I believe. The square plastic pieces in the frame, if I am not mistaken are for an after market ski rack that was available back in the day.

As for the jack point, I think you can do without them if you don't want to put them back on. I personally don't have them on there, but my rockers also don't have holes stamped in them.(the perks of working at a metal stamping facility (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) )

Following with interest..I'm at a similar stage to you with the bodywork. Looks like the body's in pretty good shape. Noticed you got the car from Patrik at 914er-teile.

Best of luck with it.

Thanks for the info about the square plastic pieces Pete, I've been wondering about those for some time now. Today I've spend the morning mediablasting the "floor" under the headlightbuckets, had to build a longer blasting nozzle to get in there effectivly. Found some more rust but it's nothing to big.

And I've sent an order to Restoration Design for two new rear jack points and an E-brake guide panel.

Regarding the discussion of the holes in the windshield frame; this is a picture of my 914/6 with a ski rack. The front bar fit the holes in the windshield frame. The rear bar was attached with screws into threaded holes under the rollbar.
The pictures aws taken in Bertschesgarten, Germany during the winter of 1972/73.

Stuffs happening still but as I work out of town during the weeks I only get a fewhours of work done each the weekend. I've finally decided on the colour for
the car to be resprayed in but I'll keep that to myself for now. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
Also scored some nice new stuff like a set of 15x7 Cookie cutters and a set of heat exchangers in very good condition.

Still need to order every rubber part known to mankind from 914rubber and a set of carpets etc... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/type.gif)

Edit: and yes I ran out of primer... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Got a tip from my cousin on a guy that could mediablast and powdercoat so today I've dropped off the following to him for refurbishment.

2x front A-arms
Front crossmember
Front guardplate
Front struts
Rear reinforcement rods (Tangerine kit)
Rear suspension arms

Should be done within a couple of weeks. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
