As Bill mentioned he has a Kroon wire harness. I place the Kroon harness next to my NOS factory harness and the only difference that really stood out was the wrap of the cloth tape on the Kroon was tighter.

Hmmm. I'm thinking I need to rewire my car. Sounds like quite an undertaking however.

Did the Kroon harness come with a snorkel or is that the 914Rubber product? It looks longer than the NOS.

Thank you for this thread. Fantastic, really looking forward to watching this car come together.

Yes. Unbeknownst to me, the harness would come with the snorkel on it. And so I know have a new or NOS one floating around either here or in IL. story of my life. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Congratulations on the purchase, decision to restore/build, and your grateful kudos to World contributors. Sounds like a great mission all around!

The car is going to be fantastic. Color, current condition, and choice of builder team will make it fun and educational to watch also. Thanks for sharing.

As a newish 914-6 owner (bought mine in July '18) I'm 'reclaiming' an older but quite thorough restoration. It went through what you are now going through - and went on to win Parade class 2 years in a row - and I can tell that now, 15 years or so later, the 'old' restoration still shows its integrity, level of care, and ease of my current job. So hats off to you for the job you're doing now and for the future.

Looking forward to following along!

@Targa70 dropped off some parts and visited his car a couple weeks ago.
I put the euro fogs on and they look great!
we are running a little slow right now as I try and get hardware plated and acquire missing parts.

I thought 914rubber makes these brushes now?
I need a set for my 6 as well.

Glenn, on the Kroon wire harness did you notice if the wire diameter was different then the factory ? I'm sending a harness off to Kroon to have redone for my 6.
In emailing with Gerard, he mentioned only difference would be in some connectors.
Did you happen to notice any difference ?

Keep up the updates...

Glenn, 914Rubber shows them on the early headlight rebuild kit but I don't see them sold separately. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

We did sell as a kit but Yes I'm sure we can sell alone. Also we are about to do a revisit on the surrounds as a Group Buy. They were supposed to be available alone for much less.
