I take the opposite approach - I don't look at the totals and try not to keep track of, or think about them too much. Maybe that's the "turn yer head away" technique (different than Paul's technique of a similar name, buttofcourse)? Works bestest for me!

I used to do that Ronnie. Not knowing was too much to bear after two restos, to not track the third.

All my receipts in a file but I try not to dwell on cost until it's time to sell. I'll total things up and figure an asking price and hope for the best.

Keep those receipts. With values going up, those receipts can be deducted from profits to offset capital gains taxes.

I rebuilt a SC engine and bolt was broken to the base. Had a machine shop to look at it but they used another company that used electrode

Came across this. Anyone used this?

I have my fingers crossed.
Well, it's been about a month. I heard back from the folks at Ollie's. Nothing was destroyed but I'm still going to have a pretty good size machine shop bill.

In the meantime, I've been working on the body.







All of this stuff came off the car and now I've started putting it all back together. I had to buy a bunch of body parts to get it done. New front flares, new rear flares, new rocker panel trim, as well as a bunch of miscellaneous small stuff.







The original fenders had no rust so I decided to put tops back on the fenders. I was going to build new 930 fenders utilizing new fenders and new flares but I was disappointed in the quality of the new flares, so they are going back.



I'll be starting on this one next. So far I am pleased with the way things are working out. I'll be measuring three times and cutting once. Hopefully I won't screw it up because good driver's side fenders are hard to find.



I cut the patch panel for the vent in the rear quarter panel on the driver's side. The passenger side flare was back ordered. I will do the same when it arrives. Then it will be time to start tacking and final fitting before all of the welding begins. I've got my fingers crossed that everything will turn out just fine. So far I think it will.

So far most parts show little wear, tight valve guides and the valves look to have very few miles since being done. New seals and valve springs, hone the cylinders a touch and new rings then the top end will be about ready.

I'm planing to tear down the bottom this weekend and see what is inside.
LMK if TIG welding onto that stud doesn't work and you need EDM work done.

It's been quite some time since I last updated, right after my last post I found original front fenders and abandoned the repair project.

Then I started my quest for a reputable body shop. I wanted one with Porsche experience and ended up sending the car to Charlotte, NC. It's been there for about a year, mostly because I said I wasn't in a big hurry. And now it is getting very close to finished. Here's pics of the progress to date.

That's not a color I care for, butt holy s**t, those pics are spectacular!

Have you been to see it in person since you sent it there? Not that you're asking for advice, butt I would definitely go there to give it the once over before paying the balance and taking possession of the car (not just have it shipped back sight unseen, in other words). Pics can be extremely deceiving when it comes to paint work, etc . . .

Ronnie prefers the pink of the inner ring tool for his color of choice.

Been there twice, last time 10 days ago.

It's worth the trip to see the shop, a gear heads wet dream.

Just a small gap in progress up-dates. Went from a bunch of holes to fix to straight and beautifully painted parts. Looks good. Reminds me of my first car. 1967 Mustang in Harvest Gold.

I have noticed Rawknee doesn't like any color. Lack of color is his thing.

Looking great! But wouldn't it have been a whole lot easier to replace the front fenders completely as opposed to cutting and welding and filling etc?
