I was not going to start thread until the car was home, but it is getting close and I want to share some pictures of the car and the progress.

My favorite section of a 914 is the rear deck. The simple line and immense flat area sets it apart from all others. I received this from the painter today and it made my day. He thought it was good. I thought it was crazy good. Some guy named Jeff told me to get it painted in single stage. I hope he approves.

It took me a second to figure out the picture. Quite the reflection.

At this time I have painted the front trunk only where needed. The area to the front of the gas tank is very nice. The headlight buckets will need a little attention. There is no deep rust in them. The area up under the cowl was good and all it needs is a good cleaning. Where the gas tank sits there was a spot of rust that had pitted a bit. You can see in the picture where it was. I sanded this out and just painted this small area. There was surface rust in the area below the gas tank which you can also see. I used various wire wheels on a drill and sanded it to get all the rust removed. The area was then sprayed with Permatex rust treatment. After a day or so I wipe off the excess and use a etching primer and then paint.

There were three types of material used as gas tank pads when I removed the tank. To the front on the tank were the two carpet pads. There was no problem under those pads. On the flat part of the tank to the rear of the tank was a strip which I think was a furniture protection felt strip. It was long and narrow and it caused no problem. The other piece I think was a piece of leather. This is where the rust was.

Wow ... looks great, Roger. Now I can see why you desired the nicest trim pieces available to finish it off. Glad to hear the upper windshield trim made the trip OK, and that it met with your expectations. Looking forward to the progression to completion.

The pad on the flat part looks familiar. What kind of material do you think it is?

That was the original pad from the factory and they retain moisture. I will be replacing with adhesive backed rubber!

The air box is in. I was very apprehensive about getting it back in place and really did not have a plan. I don't read all the post, but I had not seen one that said it was easy.

I had a few starts and stops and a few redos. I seperated box from fan then installed the box. With the box in I didn't have room to attach the control wire.

Attached Image (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

Start over. Removed air box to allow room to attach control wire. Even with the box removed this was the most difficult task. I had marked the spot where the wire was attached so I knew where it needed to be. With the washers and a tight fit this gave me a fit. I ended up putting in the bolt with the small hole in and then the near washer and used a little super glue to hold them in place. After the nut secured the wire in place I attached the outer rubber cable. With the wire control in place the fan will set flat and there is room to insert air box. It slid up easily and tightened the box in place.

I hooked up electric wire before attaching fan.

Getting the fan bolted to box was a challenge. I had to get some longer 5 mm bolts to align it then hold it in place while I got the short bolts in.

I don't know if valve is supposed to be completely close, but it wont be on this car.

At this position the fan was blowing full and flat was wide open. I don't know if this is perfect , but I don't want to start over.
