Drove up to Pet-a-llama and hung out with Chris (tygaboy) today for a few hours while he made a few tweaks to his car, he is pretty good with that tube bender!

Speaking of tube bending, this hoop just happened to find its way into the back of my truck courtesy of Chris...thanks man! I owe you.

Mike - Always great to see you! I'll have to plan better next time and leverage your help.
It's certainly possible to mix and match tube sizes and wall thickness, particularly when the final product isn't going to have to pass any sort of tech inspection.
That said, unless there's some compelling reason beyond aesthetics, I'd keep everything 1.5".
I went with the .095 wall as that was spec'd for cars in the 914 weight range.
And here are the pics of the bolt in set up that I believe was done by Eric Shea.

Thanks again Chris, much better pictures than viewing the thumbnails on your computer (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)


I talked to Tony at TC Design last night and he too confirmed what I was doing is "okay" however he did recommend all same size if I could do it. I forgot we hired a new mechanic at work and he has a side business building fast 1/4 mile and track FWD cars and I can get the tubing from him, $3 a foot, not too bad so a 10 foot section should do it.

Drilled and tapped all the exhaust stud holes for Time-Serts.

Wondering if better than stock valves should be installed right now or not.

Will be installing dual valve springs for the bigger camshaft.

The picture of the tube being cut is for a homemade valve spring compression tool I made today to remove the springs.

Started to gather parts to rebuild/restore my ugly steering wheel. Ring for hockey puck horn button replica that I will be making from billet alum instead of the usual plastic. Pricey little sucker, found on eBay for $42 shipped, not sure if I like it now.

Drew up my version of a hockey puck horn pad. Waiting for the leather to show up. Not going with standard Porsche crest.

Removed gas tank today, the rubber hoses just snapped in half so who knows how old the suckers are.

Car is much rustier than I thought it would was originally. Front trunk has a 'glass panel riveted in to cover a bunch of rust and missing sheet metal. Hell hole is gone and rust made it all the way down to the jack pad and long.

Finally test fit my new-to-me BBS wheels and measured the spacers the PO installed on the car to fit the old Phonedials.

I like the look of the too long studs on the front, might trim them down a little or remove and turn them so they are like the racing quick change studs.

Fronts have the 32mm spacer, rears are 32 bolt on spacers. (and will be for sale in the near future and I can make the rear into true slip-on spacers by removing the studs and drilling them out.

Rear fenders will need to be pulled a little more to fit when I put some tires on those rims.

All these hoses look original to me, I'd like to replace....source for new ones?

I bought a new 914rubber master cylinder (I think I got the quick install kit but don't remember what parts came with it )

Wow, thats a lot rustier than I would have imagined! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Fixable... but thats a PITA..

I mean that front gas tank area never gets rust..



Throw some patches over it and make it a driver??

Those wheels are PERFECT Mike. Love the long stud outlaw look. Sucks about the rust but you'll fix it. Those pre-'74 fuel likes crumble like pasta don't they?

If 914Rubber doesn't have the brake stuff you need maybe PMB Performance?

More than likely rusty from a couple of items.

Salt water - I hope not, or animal urine. More likely the latter.

I found out the car sat in a field for a few years before the PO bought it, then it sat in his front yard for a few years as well. We think the car could have been on the coast for a bit as well. I've owned for 2 years, no battery and fully covered.

Sh!t happens, I'll slowly fix it. I was telling the wife that with the amount of rust it has I won't feel guilty making small modifications to the car. She said fine do what I want as long as I don't add flares! hahaha

I love the new BBS/Mahle rims so this will remain a narrow bodied car for sure.

Thanks, I like those extra long studs as well. I never planned to quite fit in will all the crowds (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I need to find all my new-to-me brake parts and put it together. Luckily the car had brand new rotors and pads on all for corners. I just need to clean off the rust on the rotors. I bought a set of PMB rebuilt front calipers and just need to figure out what I am going to do with the rear calipers. $325 for rebuilt units hurts...we'll see.

I have not seen the plastic brake lines fail or crack unless it was crushed. There is no pressure in them unless you use a power bleeder. The hoses from the reservoir to the lines do fail and should be replaced. There is a a blue braided hose that is available for replacement. I bet PMB has it.

My car does not have a front swaybar, never had one.

So I bought a stock 15mm bar, didn't realize it had no hardware until I committed to buy it, still think it was a good deal. This thing looks brand new so I am not complaining.

Spent a little time drawing up some parts for it while I wait for the garage to warm up this morning.

The idea is to make a 15mm ID by 24mm OD split spacer, (green parts, hard to tell there are 2 pieces there) this will allow me to use an Igus MFM2430-30 bushing (dark colored part) to replace the factory rubber bushings. These are <$5 each (accounting for shipping, I bought 6 of them)

Had car professionally steam cleaned down in San Jose.
Co-worker gave me these prints last week, his girl friend had a 914 (and just sold it last year for a grand and is local to me and wondering if it stayed in the area) Getting some more boxes of stuff from him, told if I sell any I will split profits and give away what I don't need or cannot sell.

Hey Mike - I believe that is the same place where I had my 6 steam cleaned after I bought it. Mine looked like it was at the bottom of an oil drum for years and had oil and caked on crud that was like 1/4" thick all over the bottom.

The steam cleaner did a good job. Ultimately, that is what allowed me to realize the whole car needed to come apart rather than just fixing the major components and trying to drive it. Not a lot of places with a lift that do steam cleaning anymore. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)
