Had to remind them to paint the underside of both lids. Importance of keeping in touch with a paint shop that's pretty far away. They weren't planning on it!

Painting the trunks don't really care about, but don't want to open a lid and see a different color. That woulda been an oops!

WOW. What does a car on a trailer and a tow rig cost to get on the boat?

Can't recall?

Really looking forward to getting the 914 home and maybe even back on the road for the summer.

Actually two boats; one to get off the island and another to get over to the peninsula.

Looking good Dan!

Can’t wait to see it in paint Dan. Looking good. Nice you caught the trunk lids needing attention in time. That’s quite a logistical scenario getting it to and fro your home.

My hair is getting so gray.

Shop painted both trunks and cleaned them up better than I would have expected. I didn't have them paint the fuel tank area. It just needs to be cleaned up which I can do.

Sorry for the sun glare on this shot, I should have opened the rear trunk. It's really nice!

Made it home fine and starting to sift through 4 boxes of 914Rubber gaskets and parts. Already found a few missing pieces I NEED before I can start the 914 again.

Yup! Anacona Blue, L97B I think? It's the 914's original color.

Super excited, getting this 914 painted was an adventure. The shop stayed within my budget and completed the project fairly quickly considering they got it from another shop.

Two ferries over, crashed at a hotel, 7AM the next morning I was there. Two ferries back and it's home after 8 months gone for paint.

Huge milestone in your build; that is a terrific color. Be very careful during assembly.

Before I can put the oil tank in, have to install vinyl and trim. Mainly the little nut that holds the sail panel trim in place.

Got the oil tank back in last night and started on the oil lines. Getting closer to starting the engine after 8 months. Also installed all main body gaskets, doors and trunks.

Have a growing list of things I forgot to order.
