And for good luck more aeration in the wheel well, can this be repaired from the inside? Otherwise that rear panel is going have to come of to get access.

Also removed the engine insulation, yuck and good riddance.

Drivers side looks good though (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

I used the hose to get rid of a bunch of crud in all the wheel wells and that is why the last photo looks like it does.

If these photos are too big let me know.

Well this just gets better and better, I was aiming for a solid foundation for my project ..... god that seems bloody hilarious, looking for the icon where you shoot yourself in the head. OK found this one, will do. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hanged.gif)

Here is the lighter side of stuff.

Amazed at the quality of this speaker install, you should all go out and perform this mod on your cars.

There was a bunch of glass behind the rear pad so I presume someone broke into the car, looking at the seal of the rear window I think this thing leaked pretty good and no doubt contributed to the rot.

Ok now for the oh S*** stuff, if there was not enough of it already.

The inner long is rotter all along the bottom edge, you can push the side in, tough to get a good shot of this with the camera.

Another larger hold at the front.

I do not have a (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sawzall-smiley.gif) but if it was not for the wife and her encouragement I would have one by now.

I would keep your eyes out for a good "rust free roller"... That rust looks fairly extensive. It's not that it can't be fixed, but I think a swap would be less work.

That thought has crossed my mind a lot and I may end up there, this purchase has definately been a learning experience in a number of ways. Certainly wiser about 914's for sure.

Yep everything is fixable, is it worth it? Now that is a personal thing and am still pondering, this is way beyond what I envisaged getting involved in. I am also aware of the fact if I get into it, fix the welding, get it rolling I could end up with something not being true in the chassis.

Well I had planned some other things today but decided I would see what the floors are really made of. Set about with a heat gun and a wood chisel.

Pic of before

Some holes in the rear drivers side pan, I was browsing some older threads and someone mentioned their car must have been used as a swimming pool. Not sure it is quite that bad but there have definately been some 'moisture events' over the years.

Attached Image

Spotted this crack in the drivers side long.

That car is very nice looking on the outside, and it looks like there are a lot of nice parts there, but I hope you didn't pay premo price for that car, at least not more that the sum of the parts. If you are not emotionally attached to it, it may be worthwile looking for a good roller. I would fix that car if it was mine, and the paint was perfect (it looks perfect in the photos), meaning that it doesn't need to go into the autobody shop anyways, and been in the family a long time. In other words, compare the price of a roller+paint/body to fixin your car. But 914's are cheap and plentiful, at least rollers. Does anyone know if "rocker clamshells" could be a solution here?

That crack is a flex crack in the longs, I never noticed it in mine till McMark pointed it out, he tells me that they commonly flex and crack in this area.

The paint is not perfect, it is not bad though a couple bubbling spots etc ... and I had anticipated a new paint job down the road. I am in no way emotionally tied to this car, just the fact I bought it and want to get it the way I want it. As for top dollar no, but had I known what I know now (bet there are a lot of people on this list who have been in the same situaion) you would not have seen me for dust. In the end I only have myself to blame, lesson learned.

Back to the problem at hand, I am concerned about getting the car in the air and taking of the outer rocker as with the inner so bad it is the only thing holding it together on that side. Is the arrowed item the inner part of the clambshell?
