The red car is a bit more involved, but other than taking more time, is pretty straight forward. Cut out the old spot welds and then the rust, match the new parts to the cut out rusted areas, butt weld and spot weld where necessary coat caulk and paint. Here are pictures of the sectioned longitudinal, again keeping as much of the original structure as possible

so today on the 73 bahia red car, we removed the console for a recover by our own in house upholstery and carpet "girl" Sue, and welded in the longitudinal. We also removed the back pad for the first time in its life and found a spot there we are going to repair. We also removed the cb mount, the digital clock, and the power booster along with the wiring and exposed the original blaupunkt cassette wiring (we are going to reinstall the original cassette.

Our goal is to make this a very sound car and as original looking as possible.

Well in two days does not look like we have accomplished much on the bahia red 73 but actually have: The long is welded in and we are not working on the door post and front right fender well. Thankfully the left side will be much easier as it never gets as much abuse as the right side.

The green one is coming along very nicely, we have replaced the master cylinder, rebuilt one of the calipers, repacked and adjusted the wheel bearings, and finished the small floor pan repair. We also installed the top vinyl and next week will install the side vinyl. The car runs nicely from a gas can, and we are cleaning and reinstalling the gas tank next week. The seat repair if finished, and we have the new carpet ready to install.

Build threads should be in the garage...
Too many pages to read trying to see what's for sale.

I like the build threads on these various cars but I think it would be better to list the cars for sale separately to make it easier to follow.

Thanks for the comments. However, I do not think it appropriate to put cars for sale in the garage area. I put these cars up for sale to begin with as is if someone wanted a bargain, but then began to bring them to a higher level, still for sale, so that potential buyers could observe the complete process and witness what we are doing to each car. We are doing these all at one time, hence the multiple listing. After these three are sold, we will post the next one by itself. SO: here again is what is for sale here
Nepal orange 76 2.0 California car currently in the paint shop
Zambezi green 1973 with 2.0 engine, currently having the interior about to be installed and major service completed
Bahia red 73 2.0 inner rocker sill and longitudinal welding in process

All three are currently for sale

Sorry my mistake perhaps but I just kinda lost track

First post was :

1973 Porsche 914 with 2.0 green 10,500
1973 Porsche 914 2.0 red 12,500
1976 Porsche 914 2.0 red 21,500
1974 Porsche 914 2.0 limited edition black 26,500
1976 Porsche 914 2.0 black 12,500
1976 Porsche 914 2.0 blue (may be sold) 25,500
1976 Porsche 914 2.0 orange 14,500

I have to ship and import so I’m in the 15 k range.
Is it possible to list the cars for sale separately ? I see lots of pics of the red and green one but where is the info and pics of the nepal orange one ?

Yes as soon as we are finished, we will be listing the cars with full pictures and specs. We plan on putting a set of white positive stripes on the 73 red one to make it look like the original advertisement

Finally we are about ready to install the heater tube muffler and close off the longitudinal. We will of course first coat the metal. Notice the reconstructed Door jamb We wasted a replacement door jamb, just using the bottom part of it.

We have finished the inner wheel well repair and are proceeding to install the front of the inner rocker and then cap it off with the bottom of the lock post. This area, believe it or not, is where the 914 flexes the most, and the factory used three layers of metal here: The back of the inner wheel house, the inner rocker, and finally the lock post to make it strong. Very important to repair these areas strongly

When reading (somewhat skimming) this thread, it is impossible to tell what is really being sold. Admins should delete this "for sale" thread or move it to the garage.

Further threads should be "single car per thread" unless you are truly selling a set/group of cars together.
