how do you/did you remove the glue residue from where the backpad was in the engine compartment without removing the paint?

I'm in the same boat and I want to get rid of the residue left behind but I don't want to remove any of the paint if I don't have to.

<forgive me if that's a noob question>


i used a gallon of goof off. its not so harsh on the paint underneath.

That's great information to know...wonder if ScottyB knows about this trick...

Do you use a sponge/towel/scotchbrite pad?

This build is truly inspirational. Somehow the best ideas always come from a napkin sketch. At what point do you cross the line into building a "supercar" , this may be it.

Good luck. You'll need it.

You might as well build a tube frame and hang that body on it.

By the time it's finished there will definitely be a mosaic (for lack of a better term) of tubes in conjunction with the original body. Our goal is to keep the OE platform as much as possible, to keep this project as much of a 914 when it's all said and done.


Best,

Cool build! Are you going to stiffen stock chassis or build a tube chassis? What about weight distribution as well? That engine & tranny look heavy. Can't wait to see it come together! Good luck!

Since we're keeping the 914 chassis, we will be implementing a complete front to back stiffening program for the car. Weight distribution will be dealt with when the car is in the assembly stage, where in which we'll have the car weighed and balanced to meet our racing program's requirements, while also maintaining an ideal balance.

One of the oe turbo exhaust manifolds.
You can just about pass a silver dollar through the discharge.
Too small for our turbonetics gtk.
Not even tubing, just 2 low grade stainless steel clam shells welded together.
We are designing some tubular Shorty turbo headers for decent spooling.Attached Image

Awesome build!

Here is my 5.3 liter engine based from the 4.5 Cayenne. This is the normally aspirated configuration going into the LN Engineering Cayenne S. Next comes the 5.5 TT version for Beth's beast.

Genuine LN Nickies, our own billet rods, true 4 valve piston design from JE and all the other goodies. Having fun developing these components, engine designs and assembly procedures.

Nothing like doing it all from scratch... This is a 13:1 daily driver. The 6 liter stroker version is going to be a lot of fun to complete, for sure.

Hello 914 community,

Here's the projects latest update. Please, excuse the picture sizes as some were taken on my phone and others on a point & shoot camera.

Here you can see the 35+ years of Germany's finest glue coming off the aluminum trim from the A pillar. Also, if anyone is looking for near perfect 914 aluminum trim pieces PM me.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img10.imageshack.us-14843-1368644739.1.jpg)

These are the clear tail lights that came in from Auto Atlanta. They'll fit right in for that modern look we're going for.

Cutting out the trunk floor pans

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img442.imageshack.us-14843-1368644739.3.jpg)

Removing the rear view mirror from the windshield, boy was that fun....NOT!

Removing the wire harness

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img138.imageshack.us-14843-1368644739.5.jpg)

And completely out! Pictures don't show the work it took to get this all out in one piece justice. PM me if you're interested in this.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img10.imageshack.us-14843-1368644739.6.jpg)

Several engine pics just in from Lozano Brothers Porting. Here you can see the cylinder head porting they have done.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img6.imageshack.us-14843-1368644739.7.jpg)

Here is the oil pump being fit, notice no oil pan as it is currently being CNC'd for bottom clearance.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img6.imageshack.us-14843-1368644740.8.jpg)

Oil Pump side view, and no you're not trippin' out, the picture is upside down to show the engine right side up.

Here is the block with the iron sleeves fitted

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img24.imageshack.us-14843-1368644740.11.jpg)

This is the carbon fiber dash that will bring that race car elegance to our project, can't wait till it's finished!

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img89.imageshack.us-14843-1368644740.12.jpg)

What the dash will primarily look like. (Picture taken from another forum member's car).

Here is a pic from Neo914's car. This is what we need for our new headlights, if anyone knows anyone who has / makes or is willing to produce a pair please PM me.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img593.imageshack.us-14843-1368644740.14.jpg)

Air intake box idea from BBI's fabricator, "The_Fabricator" of Instagram, we'll be utilizing two of these for the twin turbo set up

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img153.imageshack.us-14843-1368644740.15.jpg)

Throwing around some ideas for the turbos, how cool would this be!?

One thing is for sure though, our welds and pipe bends wont look like this!

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/img802.imageshack.us-14843-1368644740.17.png)

And how could I leave you without your daily afternoon dose of eye candy. This pic should really be rated NSFW, but her top is still on so I guess it's okay?
