More oics.

Are the holes for the back pad screws covered by the rear stiffener ? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)


Yes and I will have to locate/access those.

Had a great time visiting with Kent and Jim and seeing all of the progress on my car. It looks like it would have on the factory line. It's sitting next to a very very rare '68 911R.....the work on the 911R is just amazing.

Then we went to the engine shop. Apparently the engine, I had it built 3 years ago, was not stored properly after being built, so we have a little bit of light corrosion on the cams, but aside from that it should be good. Once the engine arrived at Jim's he completely wrapped it in cling wrap. Fortunately, we caught it before it could really do damage.

We did discover the original 3.2 oil cooler was installed on the motor instead of the 914-6 cooler that came off my car. I have asked Scotty to please locate my oil cooler and ship it to us ASAP so they can continue with the engine work and bench fire the motor.

Anyway, my car is moving along with terrific progress on all fronts. While I was at Jim's, my brother was with me, Jim tossed me the keys to his '70 914-6, the white one, and told me to take it for a spin. Who would say "No thanks" to that? My brother and I drove from Jim's to Kent's shop, about 20 miles, and it was a blast. His white car has "patina" but runs like a Swiss watch. That was the coolest. When it comes to people, they do not get any better than Jim and Kent. I was sorry I did not get to see and talk to Andy this time- hopefully next trip I will see him.

So I am one happy guy -

Michael..

Eric from Pmb reported that the my heat exchangers come very close to the factory 914-6 oil cooler brackets. Just make a note of that. A couple ways around it but wanted to let you know..

Terrific news, Scotty located my oil cooler and is shipping it. That's a great relief. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

under the batter tray, into the hell hole area.

1) isn't there supposed to be a drain hole to let the water out?
2) why did he put undercoating in there?

Hi r_towle,

I don't know if there is a hole there or not. I do know Kent knows what he is doing. I believe the undercoating is for extra protection for the future, so damage never gets a chance to happen. Not an inch of this chassis has been overlooked to get it absolutely right. We will just have to stay tuned to see what happens next. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I think my smile would be that big too!

I hope you don't mind but I've stolen all of your photos showing the seam sealer applied to give to my body guy. They're just about the best reference photos out there.

Enjoying following this build.

Thanks Stephen. I do not mind at all. The reason we have so fully photo-documented this entire restoration is to help those considering a restoration know how really involved this work is and provide a "guide" for what to do and what to be aware of when you undertake a project of this size.

Yep, me too. I was going to start a thread to see if there were diagrams, but Kent took care of if for me.

Hi, the drain hole is there, just can't see it at that angle.

This car though an original Six is deviating from stock, 3.2, side shift, hinged/tilt passenger seat, none original color so though the undercoating is not stock, it will add protection for "long" in the future. The Hell Hole was surprisingly in great shape on this car.

Yeah, well the Hell Hole was great because the thing was covered in a ton of oil as was the bottom of the car. So that had to help.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) Oh, wait....did Kent just say the car is going a non-original color......

Terrific. Scotty got my oil cooler shipped out pretty darn quickly, (thank you) and it came with a few other parts we have been missing too. Now we will send the cooler out to be sonic cleaned and pressure tested so it is ready for installation. Oh, the two trailing arm bearings came from PMB- thanks Eric.
