Here's the green, it's based on a rare 356 colour. I shot this RWB 911 'Kizuna' in Indonesia last year and I was inspired by the colour scheme, so my friends who built Kizuna sent me a sample from the build and we've matched closeish to it.

If you keep following this build, you'll see more influences from Kizuna come through such as the dark interior and exterior detailing. You could say that my 914 will be a 'baby brother' to Kizuna.

You can see my full article on Kizuna by clicking here.

Terrific project, thanks for sharing ! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) You will have a "new" 914..... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer.gif)


Thanks, Jim. Almost... It's not a full resto, the interior metal and underpinnings have all been left untouched.

Thanks. It was a tricky decision to go for something so different, but I'm really happy with it.

Things are ticking along here. The front end is out for rebuilding, the rear shocks and springs are out. I scrubbed and painted the underside of the car, the interior floor has had some attention and now I'm working on some custom dash ideas.

Hey that's looking great Luke, I'm envious!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer.gif) Keep it up, and welcome btw.

Quick question.. at one point your entire car was primed white (looks white on my monitor) but then in the next shots it's dull black w/ grey looking filler at the quarter fenders. Can you give me a quick explanation? I assume imperfections were found after a black sealer went on? but could not be seen with the white primer? I assume a fresh black sealer followed, and was used under the green, right? Sorry just trying to understand the process your guy used.

Hi, thanks for the welcome, I appreciate it. I don't recall all the exact steps with the paint prep, but yes, the black was the last layer of primer before the green.

Some lockdown progress from me. I've done a few things over the last few months.

I've been taking advantage of the autumn sunshine to prep and paint some front end parts:

I stripped the old covers off the driver's seat and had a go at installing one of the 914 Rubber kits. Excuse the wrinkles, but I'm a car DIY newbie and I'm not used to doing these kinds of jobs. It's all good fun though, and I'm learning lots along the way.

I installed a layer of sound deadening on the floor and up the firewall from a company called Carbuilders in Melbourne.

And, most recently, I've mocked up a few interior parts to see how things are going to look. I have a new gauge plate from Rennline, a MOMO Prototipo Heritage Edition wheel, Autometer Tach and footplates and shifter from Thorotec in Germany.

Loving the progress! FYI, if you put a damp towel over the wrinkles and loose aeas on your seats and run a steam iron over them, the fabric will tighten up and pull most or al of the wrinkles out. The pros use a steamer which you might be able to rent, but I found the towel and iron that I already had on hand worked great.

Thanks but I don't understand the question. Do you mean what brand is it? It's by Thorotec in Germany.

Thanks, I'll sort it down the track, no rush. A bit of usage in the sunshine come spring will also help.
