Yes it is a sickness; and I believe other World members have it. I went so far as to transfer the stickers and felt bad from my broken fan housing to the new one. Only I will know.


Inspired by the crew here, I spent more hours than I should have on my blower. Though a hidden part, I am happy with my results.

I started with my original system paired with a donor system I purchased several years ago. I used Easy-Off to remove most all of the overspray, followed by a combination of 1000, 2000, Autsol, and Magic Eraser. New 914 Rubber seals and plated hardware finished if off.

Damn. That looks awesome! Bet you're tempted to get another one to install in the hidden spot under the cowl and mount this one in the trunk where it can be admired.

A tutorial? for those of us who are happily 914 sick. Those plastic pieces weren't just/only cleaned, right ? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)

You’re making me want to tear mine apart again to detail it.

Stop it!

Ditto. Mine cleaned up nice but rather than have the hardware replated, I just painted them. After seeing Stephen's work, I decided I'd tear it apart again and send the hardware for plating. Now with this, I HAVE to!

Love it, but I would have to make two of them because there is a good chance that the first one I try to install will end up flying across the garage in a fit of rage

Since a few members have asked, here is how I did it without using paint. I carefully removed all the metal clips and pulled the cases apart exposing the fan and the flapper valves. I believe the nuts/bolts on the flappers were 8mm. I removed the fan sensor, cleaned the contacts, and lightly brushed off the fan blades. These blades are thin, brittle, and easy to break.

While all the metal parts were getting yellow zinc'd, I ordered the 914rubber seals and removed the overspray with Easy-Off oven cleaner. I did not let the Easy-Off sit for very long before I hosed it off and the easy off makes the paint easy to scrape/sand off. I then used 1000 and 2000 grit, in that order, to wet sand most of the scratches, and dullness left by the Easy-Off.

I used Magic Eraser and Autosol, sometimes together and sometimes alone, with great success to get to the areas that I could not with the sand paper. And I used a lot of elbow grease.

I used a soft toothbrush to clean up the areas close to the letters and in the cracks. When the clips arrived I reversed the process, being very careful to not break the fragile plastic.

I used my original system from an early car and some common parts from a later car. I plated as much as I could and sold all the leftovers to help offset my costs.

Really nice job! I plan to do a similar job (without the plating) this winter. I'm curious, does the easy off somehow not remove the black paint below the overspray in a way that laquer thinner would?

Unless a PO painted it, there is just black plastic under the overspray - no paint. Anything that softens paint without damaging the plastic will work. I used brake fluid but it was a slow, messy process and brake fluid is not fun to work with.
