Taylor's project arrived at MiddleMotors this am. It came in style, on a flatbed tow truck. Here's some close ups of the areas that will need some work. It's a shame this really is a pretty good tub. It will need a right suspension ear (early battery acid). It will need a patch in the right engine firewall right behind the passenger (soggy engine sound mat). Doesn't seem to be any cosmetic body damage. But the rat damage is pretty severe.

This is going to be a tag team effort with Taylor and I. By the time we get this thing ready for paint he'll an accomplished welder and spot weld remover. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sawzall-smiley.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)

Project starts tomorrow at 10am. I plan to arrive around 9am and get the center field section of the front firewall and dash marked out so Taylor can saw away.
Super In Law is going to take and mark down all the X Y Z measurements that might come into play. We discussed welding in a brace between the longs. I'm thinking maybe one between the front shock towers.

Here's right suspension ear. SOP.

It is on a rotisserie so that makes things a little easier.
I can hear the nay sayers already. Crush It.
I'm up for the challenge. Taylor's eager to learn. Lets see how things look after we get the majority on the field sawed out tomorrow. What does it look like behind the spot welds?

Back at it cutting out the rust and drilling spot welds. Also took some time to clean up the engine and replaced the leaky oil cooler seals with new ones from 914 Rubber.Attached Image Attached Image

A couple more shots from yesterday. Taylor had a great day. Got him lined out and and away he went. Gave him a couple coaching sessions on using Rick's grind and peeling spot weld removal technique. He's getting a good feel on what the metal is telling him.

Taylor,

Welcome to the path that leads to the road of 914 freedom, and the day of its first drive.

Good looking project, and Light Ivory is a great color!

Back to work on Taylor's project.
1st. Cut off the nose ................

Pretty much junk ............. You can see the wrinkle on the right side.
When time allows we'll trim some other pieces off. The seal channels are nice.

#2. Off came the needed section. As Taylor is drilling out spot welds on the car tomorrow. I'll ponder how much we're going to use.

#3. Drilled out the center tunnel so it can be saved in it entirety. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Today I'll get Taylor set up removing the trimmed off spot weld flanges inside the project car. Slow tedious work .......................
Looking at it again yesterday it looks like we'll replace the lower 1/2 of the fuel tank/strut support wall.

Still pondering the upper inner fender portion. Will the remaining portion of the dash have to come out to get it in ?

Rats made a nest in the air box and over time the urine ate the metal. Fortunately, as you mentioned most cars do not have rust here so lots of options for donor parts.
Way to go Taylor keep plugging away!

I know you'll have 150 hours + into this, but I hope we can paint it this late summer so you can assemble this winter. Who knows WCR next year???

Taylor had a very productive day. He got most of the spot welds cut out side to side under the dash on the project car. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Very impressed. He has a good handle on the Rotabroach spot weld cutter.
