Got the E9 back from it's motor/trans updates! Tossed on the new wheel/tire package and man, is this thing cool. Drives really well, looks great. Still to come is the euro bumper conversion but I couldn't be happier at this point!

And here is the final product.

Finally was able to confirm that my set of rare early '82 ceramic ram for the c64 is indeed functional.

I wouldn't have any heartburn if you did. It's always nice to see something different rather than a bunch of the same cars ... especially something you don't get to see too often.

I miss my old 530i. It looked much better when I kept up on it rolleyes.gif

@Steve My 84-year-old neighbor got it about 10 days ago, fully vaccinated and boosted. He did not feel well and said it was a tough week; he isolated from his wife and son in their downstairs apartment. Yesterday he tested negative and feels a whole lot better saying he now just feels like he has a very mild head cold. Rest and fluids my friend. Get well soon. beerchug.gif

Thanks everyone!! I’m vaccinated, but not boosted, so hopefully it will be a quick recovery. As they say, if it’s not one thing it’s another.

Working too much, but a happier note, on a business trip to Central Texas. Less than an hour from Mark @914Sixer in San Angelo.
Met for dinner last night and saw his parts depot/shop with two work-in-progress 914's.

Just went through this a few weeks ago, both my wife and I.
Thankfully we are both vaccinated and boosted.
She was out sick for solid 2 weeks, low grade fever, congestion, headaches, complete lack of energy.
It took most of a week for me to get through it with milder symptoms than my wife had but not something I would want to go though again.

And another electronics weekend. This time i built myself a brand new Commodore 64 from all new parts. Started with a new PCB and bags of components and ended up with a working computer.
The few chips that show as "bad" on the diagnostic screen are actually fine, i just didn't have the full diagnostic harness plugged in when i took that picture.

Nice!! I used to have a C64 and an Amiga 500 in the 80s when I was in high school. I even ran a dial-up BBS on the C64 with 2 floppy drives daisy chained. Probably had over 200 pirated games, too. LOL

Now you just need a Fast Load cartridge (or an equivalent).

Original one on the left, new SD2IEC version on the right (Uses a SD card instead of floppy disks but also does accelerated floppy pass-through).

I also have several fast loading Kernal ROM images, like SpeedDOS and JiffyDOS.

Nice. I've always been a sucker for old school you solder em' kits! No idea that there were kits to build a "new" Commodore 64. Very cool!

Having done more than a few kits like that, you've definitely demonstrated some patience with the soldering on that one!

Cassette = BAD. av-943.gif I remember those days when the move from cassette storage to a 5 1/4 floppy was like a miracle!

I'm in the process of tearing apart my garage getting ready to move.

The biggest problem -- the mill. Moving it cross country with professional machinery movers is cost prohibitive. Household goods movers are out of the question.

That leaves - DIY. Without a forklift and a trailer, that leaves U-Haul as my mode of transport.

So . . . it will move in a disassembled state where I can more easily deal with the component pieces.

@buddyV Robert and I took the E9 to Calistoga for the BCR (Breakfast Club Rally) "Air-Cooled Social" event. Essentially, a Cars & Coffee with no planned driving route. Some pretty cool stuff showed up! That's the Sebring 4th place winning 910!

Wrestling this this in-floor lift. It's way beefy and in addition to the 2 platforms (unibody) has arms as well for ladder frame stuff but all goes flush when down. I had a hell of a time getting it in (big slope) on the forklift and had to have a guy sitting not he back to keep the rear wheels down. Now the challenge is lowering it accurately into the pit.

Hey Pete, those lifts are really nice. Hope you are getting in a drive here and there. I must say that is some unique framing on the wall behind them. Is this a sublevel?

The horizontal boards are just on the surface of the wall and I used them to hang tools etc. when my glass studio was in this space. All the other stuff is traditional Japanese framing. The black soot on the wall above is soot from the open charcoaled pit that was used for decades before the house was renovated. I “de-renovated” it.

House was built just after WW2.

Here’s the other side of that wall where more of the structure is visible:

Those are some stunning accents! I can imagine building supplies being in short supply after the war and there's nothing wrong with traditional materials. I imagine you'll be highlighting those unique accents in your upgrade/restoration of the space...keep us updated as to why you're not working on your 914 please!

Just an average summer day here... Yesterday we were saying how cool it was - at 90 degrees.

Here in Texas everyone has a shrine to Willis H. Carrier in their houses. We put ice cube offerings on it daily.

Very cool. I love the deconstructive look. I worked with an architect in Venice CA on a building we built that used the look a lot. Really looked nice on this theme building. Though I used exposed steel instead of wood.

A friend asked if I'd help him by welding in new upper shock mounts on his E9. Nothing more fun than out-of-position welding on a valuable car that's just back from paint... wacko.gif
Yes, it's true: I really get into my work! It turned out pretty well, considering the access and visibility.

There is at least one 914 running. Change that to three running.

Got a surprise visit from New owner of my Sonoco 914-6. Really nice guy, put this car on my lift and went through it in detail. He's a local guy about an hour from me. Looking forward to have in join in on upcoming drives. I will let him formally introduce himself to the world soon.

Also, added some one-off side decals to Jerry's V8 914 plus some Pilot lights which I tinted...nice upgrade.

Yardwork house work, the car is so much easier to work on. Cleaning up the floor after a dog that's going through the chewing stag. Started doing the lawn got about an Acer 1/4 of it. Started and ran out of gas in about 20 minutes. I'll get the gas today but won't be mowing until tomorrow. Getting to hot already. After I return from the store I can clean up on the kitchen. Oh boy!!! This day gets an F.
