Look into a mobile locksmith. They use softer metal blank, wiggle it in the ignition which leaves indentations that allow the correct key to be cut. Then you can at least unlock the wheel. I had to have this done when my car was boosted from the garage and recovered with no key. Expect the process to run a C-note.


Thanks! Hopefully I can find the key, but this is great to know as it may come down to having to do something like this.

I'd like nothing more Mike! Just like old times, except that we're older. :-)

Listed two cams for sale in the classifieds this morning as I was dicking around with other ideas before I settled on the current Elgin cam. Hurry and get yours before they're sold out!

Spent a portion of Easter Sunday in the garage cleaning the fuel tank area and installing CFR's SS fuel line.

Dirty!

Not pleased with the amount of rust I've found in the center tunnel. Is there anyway I can treat this now so that it doesn't worsen without having to pull the wiring harness?

Keep water out. Without moisture, the rust will stay just like that.

go to Eastwood and get the rust conversion stuff, with the spray wand (long one)

Then you can spray in the converter, let that sit for a while.
Once that is done, I would personally spray in a top coat of whatever you want...

Wondering how water got in originally. Maybe have been a DPO thing. Car's been in the garage almost the entire time I've had it. Hmmm..

Thanks!

Good idea. Have no idea how I'd get a topcoat on though. Wonder if the conversion products would be hard on the wiring as it's going to come into contact with whatever I try to spray in there.

This looks like it might work for the center tunnel:

Thanks for your help Rich.

I'll order that product. I think I'll wrap/protect the exposed areas of the harness the best I can and all will be fine. I'm thinking glow in the dark paint for a top coat! :-) Ok, maybe just bright white.

Question:

What's a good inline fuel pressure gauge that I can mount in the engine compartment? 0-10 lbs range or thereabouts for a dual 40 IDF system.

In other news, spent many hours degressing engine tin, cooling shroud, body work on bumpers, killing rust, painting engine bits.

Stuff's coming together. Feels great!

If you use Mar-Hyde to convert, no top coat required or needed.

so it has sat for 8 years?
I dont feel as bad now....I think you take the lead.

Yeah, but I was DD'ing another 914 while it sat up until two or three years ago when I sold that car. ;-)

It took me a while to get the bug again. Now I'm dreaming about the car almost nightly. Really bizarre.

You just have to get out there and start on something. See where that leads.

Good luck!

Is that when we did the paint job in the engine compartment
wow that is 8 years ago now already isn't it
