I think the colors are similar enough to be tricking some of you in photos.

I see 2 colors on this car.

If you need help on the L-Jet, I would be happy to assist. I have worked on lots of L-Jet cars, and I have kept a 74 L-Jet car alive for 33 years.

I have boxes of L-Jet parts as well.

Almost the whole car is resprayed. The air box wasn't removed but most of everything else was to change colors.

Contrast visible here.

Thanks a ton. Between the wiring diagrams and tags and lose wires and odd part substitutes I'm under the assumption they were trying to fix a difficult problem. Owner drove it from Albuquerque to Vegas just fine, so I don't know the reason for the "trouble making shooting".

Pics of a complete installed system would be good, with components mounted where they are supposed to be and such. Also part testing specs.

Here is a glimpse of what I'm starting with.

Day3: Tales of the DPO

Before I buttoned up the pass door I did testing with my collection of stinky clear fluids in tins and Acetone won as best goop cleaner. Good news is the drivers door latch didn't need much cleanup. Need an unbroken door stopper but I think I have one in my stash. Also aligned the window guide. So far every bolt I've touched in the doors has been just past finger tight. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Had a "since I was there" moment and.... well.... this is how 5 mins saves you 5 geez.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1537681940.1.jpg)


So the pass seat was stuck forward and the handle on the wrong side. No biggie. Then I decided while I was there......
....I might as well put the drivers seat on the drivers side (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1537681940.2.jpg)


Got a bunch of stuff to do with the dash. Found another half ass moment. Vinyl yanked on til it tore and the middle 2 nuts for the dash frame removed, but the crunchy windshield seal still in place = no progress. Frame really needs to be popped free to wrap the vinyl so I made progress towards that until I got hungry. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chowtime.gif)

Stereo for sale, period correct for a Chalon (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Wiring actually looks good - except for that one green jumper bridging power.

Send them weekly updates. And invoices. It might be awhile.

Good on you for bringing another one back.

Day 4: 5 out of 6 locks agree...

... that Ice Green 914 is the place to be. The trunk lock turned into a can of worms and will depend on if I have any hours left in the budget.

Not much interesting today. Got the dash frame free. 3 more locks changed out. Plugged in a battery and dived into the wiring, particularly the funny acting console gauges.

Found my bag of door stoppers - all broken, which makes sense that I would keep the working ones in the doors. (need one)

I have a feeling I've entered virgin territory (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Foam piece between the shaft and lock cylinder. First one I've seen.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1537848316.1.jpg)

Not sure if this is correct. I thought the pad went between the strap and the tank to prevent rubbing a hole?
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1537848316.2.jpg)

The spring was half hanging, so if you've never seen it, this is how it goes so that it doesn't bind. Do the top first, then the bottom one can be worked in with just fingers.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1537848317.3.jpg)

Tomorrow I'm going to that place where things stand still to get my picture put on a new piece of plastic, then running errands after, so not likely to get anything done.

Day 5: Gremlins a go go

Traced the gremlins back to a burned out blower relay and headlight switch, and a loose wire on the wiper motor.
Since HL switches are NLA I elected to fit this one. The nub that powers the headlight relay wore off (no light) so I soldered a new nub then swapped that contact plate with a single spring to lessen the wear. Should be good for a while. Also got the console gauges sorted.
I was so pleased it didn't take long to remedy the chassis wiring that I did a happy dance (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) then some overdue yard work.

Top left if you can see it. Hole where a nub used to be.

Day 6+: You Look Dashing

Had a few weather delays and a rainy day house project interrupt progress.

Definitely easier to fit and glue the dash vinyl with the frame fully removed but it got done in car. Didn't want to mess with the blower controls which of course prohibits the frame from moving too much.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1539226165.1.jpg)

New 914Rubber dash pad. Had to make a mod. The plastic retainers are much longer than the originals, which made installation in car impossible.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1539226166.2.jpg)

Easily remedied by cutting all the fronts and the 2 behind the gauges to 2 nuts or ~13mm. Now I can insert top first then slide the front back into place.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1539226166.3.jpg)

You will notice the gauge shroud 'peaks'. This is likely because the pad was sitting on top of the steering wheel for an unknown amount of time before I got it. It's deformed but I'm hoping it will flatten out on it's own in time.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm2.staticflickr.com-431-1539226166.4.jpg)

Plus a few things not pic worthy, unless you want to see the new wart (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)
/Day6+

Pretty much done with Phase 1
Phase 2 - Drivetrain (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
