I am starting this thread "in medias res" with the car as it is today.
Then I will post a confusing mix of past and present, showing the project updates and process. Promise to nerd out on the details. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif) .

Great looking with the Minilites/Fuchs mix! And it looks like there's been a lot of metal work done. I'd love to see details on all that, if you have it.
Keep the posts coming and best of luck with your build. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sawzall-smiley.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smash.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)

Ok, so the hell hole, turns out it was not rust free.. Hælveteshøl it would be called in Norwegian btw.
It seemed to be solid, but some closer investigation revealed sloppy previous rust repairs. (x2)

Not one, but two layers of new metal without removing the original disaster area.

After removing the old crap I started fabricating the new parts. It is not really very complex geometry, and only two areas needed "special tooling".

This is the bottom of the hole, and the flange towards the side.

And the shelf.

I would not call it hell, but more like tedious and annoying-hole.

Fantastic work. Obviously not your first rodeo.
I’m tuned in. I’ll have to consult with my Norwegian Elghund to
interpret for me. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

That's about the cleanest looking HH repair I've seen, great job! Did you put a drain hole down towards the bottom of it, as stock?

Thank you! Also a good point, The drain hole is in place, important to make it the lowest point, as indicated by the two red lines. As seen in the picture small parts tend to gather in the HH, neat.

Appreciate all feedback (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Here are two pictures of the car before I started cutting in it. Quite complete, but not pretty. Solid but a bit rough..

The front fenders has been a lot of work, 914s are not very common in Norway and spare parts are not easy to come by. There were some previous rust repairs that needed to be redone.

Attached Image

The gap between the fender and the part infront of the windshield was welded together, and was not straight. Here I am making the two parts to weld in.

Attached Image

There was also something odd with the door gap..

Attached Image

In progress..

Welded in place, and doing some body soldering with lead

More or less finished, how many layers of paint can you see? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Here is a good example of doing things the hard way.. The goal is to modify the sheet metal structure around the jack mounts to make room for the GT-oil lines. To do this modification I would recomend the following. Buy the replacement sheet metal part, cut and weld. I choose to make a stamping tool (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif)

One of the almost good parts after some work, and the female tool.
