If not a Service Entrance panel, neutral buss needs to be isolated from frame of panel, and separate ground buss bonded to panel. Neutrals & grounds go to 2 different busses.

Running some electrical stuff for the compressor, welders and some outlets in the garage. Got the box open and am ready start shoving the wires in the boxes.


Now I have the ability to run outlets anywhere I want, oh and more lights too.

Still can't work on the 914 (need to adjust valves) as the 924 Turbo is still on the lift.

Hope to have running within a week......new injectors going in, all fuel lines flushed & ready......

914 is still at the body/paint shop. Been tinkering on our VW's and trying to keep flying every once in a while during the winter.

Sucky picture, Canada (Sidney) is in front of me and that's snow which didn't show up on the phone camera. Both so close could almost touch the snow flakes and smell the Maple syrup!

Finished the tranny swap in the Bug.

4.12 Swing with the .82 4th, the gap between 3-4 is a bit large, but it's much more driveable now then the original 4.375 R&P.

Outside of the inclement weather, helped my daughter stack the set of P-cars we restored.

Got the yellow 914 for x-mas smile.gif and almost no restoration needed, just a good wash.

Thanks, I believe they will. No metal damage but chipped thru to the primer in 3 places where a broken off tail pipe hit the hood at 50 mph., hard part is matching metallic. paint is only 3 years old and had clear wrap with UV prtection , so do the sides of the car/front quarters so if they use the same brand paint we used it should match up , but will have to do some sample spraying first. I know they can do it, they have an excellent rep, - that green 914/6 is a patrick motorsports build car and new owner in NC had it in for new seats and get the 3.8 monster motor tuned up properly which they did. So they do it all. Several other 914 guys in the Charlotte area used them and made the recommendation. I will let you know how it all turns out.

PS- are yuo going to sell any of those pillows? i would like to find a orange 914 p-car pillow lmk if you do.

Been designing and assembling a double track HO bridge for the train club I belong to in Ambridge PA. The entire bridge is 3d printed. It is 47 inches long and 10 inches high in the middle. It was designed after the Ohio Connecting Railroad bridge just outside of Pittsburgh crossing Brunot's island on the Ohio River.

My problem is I like to wear shorts and I don't have heating in the garage.

It just came up to 28° so I really shouldn't complain as I do know much colder up North.

I was told by a neighbor that the white stuff on my bug is snow. Someone posted a video on facebook of the snow flakes coming down here.

@Cairo94507

Thanks Michael, it was rather fun building the bridge. I designed the bridge in Solidworks which took most of the time. The printing wasn't that bad although I did do a lot of sanding to smooth the print lines.

Here's the prototype bridge I used to design this one. The prototype is 425 foot long and mine is scale 340 foot. Now I want to build an even longer bridge now.....

Because right down the street La Quinta holds our annual car show.
There were 6 914's there, one was a member but I did not see him or her. I did meet "Doc", the owner of the black six (2.7), nice fella . And one fella in a Benz that pulled up just to hang out. Nice car and a nice fella.

Been dealing with a condition called 'trigger finger' in my right hand since the beginning of the year. This isn't my first rodeo and my hand doctor said since I've already had 4 cortisone shots in it over the past couple of years, it's time to schedule surgery to ultimately fix the problem dry.gif ... (scheduled for March 24th)

So, I've been trying to get some long overdue projects completed as estimated recuperation is 5~6 weeks sad.gif


Finally finished doing the brickwork on my back yard walkway and leveling the dirt so my plumber friend can rework the sprinkler system and my gardener can put down some new sod.

Also had a carpenter friend come by last week to help build a raised the floor in the laundry room and raise the back door to the house to match the new floor's height. Still need to finish the drywall, paint and laminate flooring, but that can wait until I'm back on my feet, er hands rolleyes.gif

I actually DID do something with my 914 though ... got a spare tire from Abe so I can finally drop it back on the ground ...

I was asked to make a 70th Bday present for a '67 Camaro loving BBQ fiend.

Then a fellow BMW E9 owner asked if I'd make him a pair of seat mounts to get some 635 sport seats into his coupe.

I have not had much time to even look at the forum let alone work on the 914. I been too busy with turbos. As in Turbo Tax, our taxes, helping the kids get files and worst of all finishing my parents taxes last night. Half the time is spent getting passwords reset. My mother has more sheets of paper with passwords on them than they have in tax documents. Every one has a different password for the same accounts and she is just starting to understand upper case and lower matters for passwords. headbang.gif headbang.gif headbang.gif headbang.gif headbang.gif headbang.gif headbang.gif

I'm going to Missouri to pick up a smoker. It's large and won't fit in the back of the truck because of the shell. I should be back tomorrow evening and will probably season it Tuesday. So in reality I won't be able to work on the car till Wednesday. Maybe I can sneak in a few minutes here and there. It's a 30" x 60" rotisserie. I currently have 48 racks of Baby back ribs as they are my second favorite item to smoke.
