Back story: Car was dropped off at Carl's Cool Cars in Las Vegas based on high recommendations. Their VW specialist rebuilt the motor, bolted it back into the car, then quit. Then Carl splits with the rent money leaving all the cars to be impounded. Owner Eric posts on the 914 FB page he needs a 914 mechanic, @Toast says she knows a guy, and now it sits in my driveway (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

My job is to get it to good Daily Driver condition, which involves figuring out the mess left over (particularly the 1.8L FI) and the usual old car fixes. This is my first time working with 914 Ljet so I'm sure I'll be asking questions, plus we'll need some parts that were lost.

Parts needed: (will get longer as the days go by)
-stock 1.8 banana muffler, gaskets, nuts & bolts.
-OEM door stopper lever/bar/tie rod piece.
-both caps for the relay board plugs. Found

Custom Adds:
There are a few goodies on the list...
-914Rubber top dash pad

Problems needing solved:
None today.
