Back in the 70s these French’s did not cost too much.

Fuel Door from an aircraft. A 70s touch from early POs One of a kind so I know it is #41 Done really well. Just seemed right to leave it in the sprit that the car as it was modified in the 70’s

Updates?



Not going to expose any details as its not my car but sung by the shop yesterday and its on the lift, exterior wrapped in protective plastic like a brand new toy, in the process of receiving an extreme dose of OCD. Addison and Eric were reviewing the condition of the chrome on the window rails when I arrived.

I love seeing this car every time I am over there. So many unique details to the chassis and the condition it is being brought back to is unreal. In 25 years of 914 obsession nothing has tickled me quite like seeing this car.

Not to sound blasphemous but as amazing as Erics personal car is i am starting to think it was just the warm-up act and this may be the new headliner.

Me too. I bought this car in 2007 for $15,000.

Did a bunch of work to it in the way of parts and body paint removal. Now it is at the master’s hand to get it done.

The car had an Scheel Racing seat and Eric and I are making the final decisions on how to finish the car. We have decided on full Black leather with hound’s-tooth inserts. Instruments from a 69 S are out for rebuilding. I need to take a trip to PMBs shop to see it. What you see is what I get or if someone want to make an up-date that is fine.

The instruments are in a somewhat different order but it was the vision of the POs back in the 70s to build this hotrod version of a 6. We are only changing it a little from that vision. To be clear this is not a stock 6. It will never win a concourse for a stock car but the level of restoration should win. Hey I have the original tool kit, book and service book.

It has all the good stuff. I am focusing on my V8 car and letting E do 41.

O, I decided to run 7 and 8 x15 Fuchs instead of the 8 and 9s x16 that are on the car now.

Today’s pictures from PMB Performance. Clearing out my garage to get ready!

Note: the guys wrap the car in plastic to keep the paint safe during the work on the body.

I also got a call from www.FuchsRestoration.com Rick that my 7 and 8 15s and spare 6 x 15 are ready. He said 6 weeks but it only took 10 days.
Bringing back my 8s and 9s x 16in that are on there now.

Will be interested in what you think about your Fuchs when you get them back. I had a set of 15x6's done and they were very good, but the black could have been less flat. You'll see what I'm talking about when you get them back. Car is looking fine.

Today I picked up my wheels 15” 7s, 8s, and one 6” spare for space saver from Rick at http://www.porschewheelservices.com/ To go on number 41. We are getting closer. I have a bunch of progress work pictures to up-load from Eric
