No caps is a little too unfinished looking on this car, not so bad on a race car. I'm going to paint the remaining 3 cap crests sliver/black and move on. My weekend is booked with continuing exchanger work, I'll push the car outside for a few pictures Saturday if the weather holds.

On the red rocket the torsion bars set the ride height. The coil-overs were setup where the springs were adjusted tight enough to prevent them from rattling in the perch. The gray ghost had a sever case of droopy butt (partly due to completely blown shocks) so the coils were cranked up to set the ride height. The ride was transformed and is very very nice. The shocks and coil springs work with the t-bars to give a nice ride when hitting bumps yet are very stiff allowing little squat on boost.
Because the t-bars still do most of the work I do not believe there will be any structural issues. I noticed long ago on these cars that new shocks hiked the car up in the rear which tells me they are doing part of the work setting the ride height in all 930's.

Got 'er out today in the cold to settle the suspension. Front is good, may drop another 1/4", rear is too high need to drop at least 1/2". With these tires the car is as close to the ground as I dare get with the speed bumps being as they are.
I'll finish the caps this weekend but that's about all there is time for right now.

That's a cool looking slantnose! Love those wide/fat rear tires...definitely period correct.

Thanks guys! I'm going to lower the rear 1/2" and see how that looks. I think I'll leave the front alone for now.
The rear valance was just trash so I took it off. The PO had backed into something and put a big dent in it. The heat shield is missing and the paint on the valance had bubbled and popped off. My car never got that hot so I don't understand this. I had one of my fiberglass units painted when they did the wheels so that will go on with the prototype muffler.
The WUR was shot (as expected) so I popped on a freshly rebuilt adjustable one and she fired right up. Went out for a drive and started pushing her a bit to see how the engine runs up top. Above 4K-5K rpm the power would fade in an out. I've never fealt anything like that before. It didn't buck at all, just fell off a few times as the rpm's climbed. Looks like a BOV rebuild, fuel head rebuild and distributor rebuild are in the future. No doubt all are old and crusty. She pulls hard though so has great potential!

Well she passed the crab walk driveway test! Looks like this is where the ride height will stay. All 4 tires can move way up and down in the well to accommodate these rain gutters and steep grades. I cannot believe it but the rear tires do not hit anywhere. That is a first for all 3 widebodies I have built/owned. I guess 3rd time is a charm and we finally got it right, ha! I will admit extreme measures were taken to get those 345 bad boys to tuck under. The slopes have an added issue and that is the steel brake duct that extends into the wheel well. Nothing a grinder can't fix. I'll post a rear shot this later, man does she look badass from the rear!

Brian, the rear tires are far too skinny and make the car look anemic - you need to sack-up and go for bigger/wider meats!

Thanks guys, just don't look too close, ha! This car is a solid 20 footer. The paint is all scratched up and there are dents here and there down low. Definitely lived a rough life to have only 69,000 miles on. Thank the lord the engine runs well.
The cosmetics need addressed. I received a care package from Juan Ruiz that I am itching to try out and see what can be brought back to life.

Real happy with how the tires/wheels worked out, they honestly move and turn like stock and don't rub. I can't get over that with it lowered like it is. Crab walking is the big test and she passed with flying colors, the front spoiler didn't even hit (although it is cracked form the PO hitting something

Those Double D's may stay Mark. Depends on what the exhaust looks like. That stock muffler's gotta go, I have a skunkwerks prototype that was on the red rocket that will go on this car. Tailpipes exit center so the big boobs may look good and help protect the pipes from my shins. If not I have a set of Single A Euro boobs on the shelf.

Yep, size does not always equate to better balance...go with the single "A" euro's.
Remember you want a lean mean machine, not a Dolly Parton top heavy model...

I went with the 1920's "Flapper" look, i.e. no tits at all.

Not that you are asking for input, but I say Double Ds all the way! Each to their own, but I think they look "right" (period correct) on the widebodies (not so much on the skinny 911s) - they are distinctive and cool and who gives a ***** if they add a few extra pounds! I remeber when Paul K removed his and posted pics - he was very happy with the result, but I actually thought it looked worse . . .again, no offence intended to those that remove them! Always a hot, though insignificant really, topic of debate here and on the 911 forum!

Looks mean! Are you at all concerned with understeer with those ultrawide rears?

Not concerned about understeer on a street car, so far it handles similar to the red rocket.

Took a quick pic of the rear end. The center out tailpipe I plan to use will clean up the rear view nice for a more symmetrical look.

This weekend's quick fix is tranny shifter bushings.
The shifting is sloppy in this car so I figure like everything else that has been neglected so have the shifter bushings. When I pulled out the coupler I was surprised to see they were worn but really not that old. I've seen some that are almost completely disintegrated and one that was totally gone and wrapped in electrical tape!!

Here is the slop that has worn the round hole to oblong:





The entire process took maybe 30 minutes. I use a hammer and drift to carefully punch the pin out and then put it back once the new bushings are pressed into place. For those of you who also need to do this I used Pelican Parts Bushing Set part number 99 1758 424/230 (BU06032BK). They are pre-lubed. Here is the worn bushings as compared to new:





Next task was to test fit my Generation II sock replacement intercooler. The core has been changed from stock front-to-back to a side-to-side run which results in more real estate under the factory shroud. Turned out real nice.








Took a picture of the ride, you can see the final version of the wheel caps. The crest is black over silver on the factory charcoal gray cap. Worked out pretty good.
