Did I mention sanding?
First.
Try out your skills on a old rusted fender,2 square yards.
If you can,with the labor you supply,bring it back to a finish that everyone says is beautiful,why then proceed with the 914.

Told him to try cleaning with simple green 1st. There is a steam cleaner so that will help. See what you have before you make too many plans. It may mostly clean up nice, but I'm thinking the about of work needed is minimal . It looked pretty solid.

So I need to expect that at some point I will need to have some engine work. Does the engine grenade or will that case be reusable? Just replace the heads?


If you're talking about the failure mode from thin barrels, then I would guess that the most likely one is that you start getting combustion gases blowing out around the seal there, burning away part of the head and part of the cylinder. Unlikely to affect the bottom end, but sometimes stuff does happen.

I was able to get a better look at the car today. It really is pretty solid. I did get some better pictures of it and in looking at the hell hole, I can see that the rust has go all the way through the metal in some pin holes.

Took off the rocker pannels and there was lots of dirt. (Thankfully very dry dirt) the rest looks great

What is the best way to take care of this level of rust in the hell hole? Who do you prefer to get the metal from, or do you just make your own patch for this?

Decided to go ahead and fix the damaged fender and minor dings aroundthe body and paint the car. So I guess this is project thread now.

Very nice red breaks. I guess there was some leftover in the can after the fender. Sent these off to Eric at PMB. Will be replacing breaks, bearings and suspension all the way around.

Now I just need to find a factory front swaybar. Anyone have one they are willing to part with?

Nice progress, looks like you have a mix of long and short wheel bolts. If you run the fuchs make sure to find a full set of long bolts.

I'll never understand how people find these cars...

I am considering buying a 75 garage find with only 23K miles on it.

Good for you!

I'd rather have a car that has 123,000 on the odo, but was warm, dry, and driven every year for 42 years. That is much better than a car driven 23k in 3 years, and then stored outside for 40 years in the rain.

What's the history on that 75 garage find with 23k?

Get some paint shot in there before you put it all back together. You can always re do it later, but it's not that hard to do in an engine compartment.

Coming and going. Got the 72 home to complete the body work and prep for paint. Lucas has been busy this week with with the DA sander, stud welder and dent puller.
Sent the wide body out to fix the wheel spacer issue and bent trailing arm. May be able to get both cars to West Coast Rally
