Well the dream begins. I'm embarking on the building of a 914 project. Here is the candidate. Bought a roller from LA area. Looks like its not going to be too much rust. Firsts thing will be to strip it. Taking front fenders and rear quarters off. Then sending to Cal Blast for media blasting. I look forward to the knowledge that I can gain from fellow enthusiasts. Plan on taking a lot of pics Stay tuned......
