Thanks to you Ian! I am looking forward to driving her to SoCal latter this year. We will see.

ok, work got in the way of my build. 2 weeks in Mass and no 914 world to keep me busy at night.
So, off the car went today.
Much thanks to Robert and Rich. Robert for doing the heavy lifting and Rich for the lifting and the truck.
No, your eyes aren't playing tricks. that is a 6x12 trailer.. close fit!

Great work. Looking forward to watching this build.
effutuo101
ok, so:
Dropped off suspension pieces to get media blasted and powder coated. Should be done next Friday
Dropped off rim centers to get painted. Will be complete with Car. Should be next Thrusday
Car should be in Primer tomorrow afternoon. I will get pictures and post them
Ordered a small fortune of stuff from the Bird for suspension bit. Ball joints, rear wheel bearing, trailing arm bearings
Ordered turbo tie rods and boots

Worked on my cousins Vespa P200 while waiting for my car. Pretty much have it sorted out. I will finish up hammering on the body tomorrow evening. Get it filled and in primer.

Next, book my trip to LA.

got busy with work, so here are a few updates:
effutuo101
after an over night bake...

and running it to the other side of the shop.
effutuo101
and off to final prep.
It was funny to watch 4 guys bust out a piece each..
effutuo101
so, it may go to paint this afternoon or Tuesday morning. It all depends on how much is left to do on the body. From the looks of it, I missed 3 or 4 low spots and the cowl has to be finished.
More pictures when we have color.
effutuo101
missed one.

Car is looking great. Just had a quick flick through your pictures.
I don't seem to see any provision for water cooling. What is your plan for this?

Intakes are in the hood and under the car. The radiator will be in front of the motor in the car. There is about 9 or 10 inches there with the shelves cut out.
The side intakes will feed the intake.
Don't worry, more pictures to come! sawzall-smiley.gif

How many coats? I've seen mixed results from Mayco.

Looks like yours was great!
effutuo101
single stage. A lot of guess work was taken out by me doing a majority of the body work. I do have to touch up some pieces as the painter was too short to reach!

Looks good

Thats just the primer right? you're not going to leave it blue.

Silver is the new car color for repaints. Ask Mr 242

I could crack jokes there about short painter....


Also I like single stage... how many coats did they do though?
effutuo101
it looks like one coat.
effutuo101
got a lot of stuff bolted on and a very large pile of parts to sift through and get put on. But, the pile is getting smaller one piece at a time...
Andyrew
Its probably 2 or 3. One coat wont give full coverage. 2 might, 3 will.

Are you looking at an air/water intercooler? Or air/air intercooler? I was going to use the power stering pump hole to run a water pump for a A/W intercooler. I should be able to find ya something. Call me sunday if you can stop by and ill dig thru the intercooler box.

Hey, I've got a factory top mount intercooler from a wrx taking up space in my garage, if that happens to be what you want to use, its all yours.
