Excellent work, Mats. Thank you for posting your build thread.

Could you tell us the specs for your BBS wheels and tires? Thanks.

Shhhhhh...they're not real BBS's but dont tell anyone....

I bought these from a guy that means to use them for an 2.7 RS Clone build but that never happened so I picked them up quite cheaply. All four are 7x15 and had never been used on the the street. The tires on them were from like 89 or something. Anyway the brand apparently is RW which I dont know much about. I'm thinking of eventually having them refinished in gold with a polished lip instead of the black they are now.

The tires and 195/50-15 Nokian. A bit of a budget tire but still a good brand so they should be ok for long drives and shows which is what I will use them for.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumb3d.gif) Stellar build. IIRC, you drove that in the Winter w/o the windscreen. Damn that was cold! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

So yesterday was the highpoint of the Swedish 914 year. The annual meeting down in south of Sweden, for the first time I would be bringing my own car that I only finished working on the evening before (fixing the odometer)

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1494790511.1.jpg)

I left home at 5:20 am to drive the 255 miles south. Joining me I had my friend Pontus driving his Cayman as a backup/following vehicle.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1494790549.1.jpg)

Since I had barely driven the car the first hour was a bit nervous. It was also quite cold for the season, only 40F when I left so I got to put the heat on to keep warm. Further south there are a couple of long inclines that I was a bit nervous about but the car handled them well just touching 375F at the top of the hills.

About 20 minutes out from arrival we stopped for fuel just to be sure, I know my engine is running quite rich (lambda 0.9) and it got around 25 mpg on that part of the trip keeping an everage speed around 100 km/h.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1494790512.2.jpg)

It was a very nice feeling driving into the small farmhouse courtyard to joing the other 914's attending. All of Sweden has an estimated number of 150 914's where probably 50 are being used every year.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1494790513.3.jpg)

So the meet managed to have 7 driving cars and one project attending. Among the visitors there was at least three whose cars were not finished or not running, hopefully we'll break into double figures next year.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1494790514.4.jpg)

It was a great day, meeting old familliar face and learning a few new ones and seeing a few cars I'd only seen images of before.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1494790514.5.jpg)

All in all it was a great day, my first major trip in the car and it handled the 510 miles great. I was pretty tired getting home tho so next year i'll probably split the driving over two days.

Yesterday was the first ever slalom even for me with this car. I felt very rusty and had
some trouble with the 180 degree turn trying both a tight and a wide line. Only four cars in my class and when I headed home I was still the fastest in my class.

Looking good Mats.
Your car looks well up.
Certainly corners nice and flat.
