Just received my set of back up gauges as my original set went AWOL! Long story, but should have them here on Monday.

Shout out to Mark Heard for hooking me up with this gorgeous refurbed set...and remember to support our member vendors!!!

Got my original set of Restored Gauges back today to go along with the back up set that was acquired just in case. Thank you to Cory Shepherd at Specialty Gauge for the great work.

My double vision always seems to get the best of me, the best of me, yeah-ah
Ooh, double vision, I need my double vision
Ooh, It takes me out of my head, takin' me out of my head
Ooh, I get my double vision
Ooh, seeing double double, double vision
Ooh, oh my double vision

Bumpers are on their way to Mexico for Re-Chroming & The Clean Up Continues! Car Is Scheduled for the Paint Booth late next week, however, that probably means week after next! Regardless, getting closer......

Paint has been delayed several weeks, but final prep should be completed by the end of the week. Doubtful though that the car will get into the booth with this much rain and humidity.

In the meantime, have been collecting many NOS and excellent condition parts required. As stated, this thread will serve as the documentation for the restoration so going to keep posting parts as they get acquired:

Window Regulators and Lifters. Was shocked to see that these regulators are original and not re-furbed like the accompanying lifters. Acquired these along with an original 12V ignition coil from Retro Automotive Products in NH. They don't get much bandwidth on the forum, but they have a great selection of really clean parts at fair pricing.

Scored a spare MPS and trigger points because you just never know when that may come in handy. NOS seat belt light and low tone horn from 914Sixer Also a set of rear targa latches from bdstone914

Attached Image


Vacuum Hose Kit & Interior Hardware Kit from AA. I know they get a bad rap here, but overall a decent experience. One billing issue with respect to delivery charges, but that was rectified and I'm OK with it.

Hope to have more updates by later in the week.

My body shop has a vendor in Riverside that brings them over the border, not sure who it is though. I can inquire if you would like to know. Price was reasonable too.

Once they get this '65 out of the booth and final prep, it'll be the 914's turn.

Just need the trunks and doors put on and then blocked and car will be painted in short order.

I'll bet it's getting harder to sleep at night. Looking good.

Side note: when I bought a new 914 1.7 in '73, my trade-in was a '66 2+2 Mustang. I went from one great car to another.

just read thru the whole thread and we are about at the same point in our peojects- i just didnt do the 2056 like i wanted, not in the budget- i would have liked to have bought the 2056 that Mike Blizzard sold but i didnt see it soon enough- i might still do upper end i have not decided,- you will be glad you did- also just sent my COA in so i wonder if i will get that same issue as you had with the color code, i have custom one year color L99k-copper metallic so it will be interesting to see how that shows up on the COA- looking forward to seeing your car back on the road- my paint should be done about the same time as yours!

I'm excited to get the car back and get it finished up. The enjoyment for me comes from driving it, not working on it.

I would recommend that if you are going to get into the motor to split the case and do the whole thing. Many people suggested just a top end refresh and as you can see from earlier in the thread, in addition to valve guides, my Cam was in serious need of attention.

So if you are going to spend time and money, I'd do the whole thing so hopefully you won't have to go through the process again.

Please keep me updated on your progress on a another great option color 914!
