The adventures of a 76' 930 restoration

Took up the challenge to do a total restoration of a 76' 930.
The car was a flatnose and had the obvious "upgrades".
Many hours where spend on the chassis which finally is back in my hands after one year.
I know there are many of these 930 under restoration,wonder why there is not a lot of shearing.
For sure i can learn from the comments,and maybe i can bring some details that might be interesting for somebody's project.

On year ago the chassis was taken to bear shell.
First we removed all the shutz and after soda blast.

I am almost to that state. just about to order a rotisserie.

I have too many and always something to do to one of the others, so far slow progress on my 78 930 conversion.

here is a link to my thread. not much new for a while but plan to really get into this bad boy this winter.

930 clone restore - if you had it to do all over?

good luck.

My car was a exact copy of yours.
Even the wheels where the same,mine was in a much worse shape tough.
Happy to have the chassis back in my hands after a long wait,and finally be able to build the car up again.

Back to its original colour.






Back home and ready to start!

I believe that's "White Metallic Gold" WEISSGOLD MET Color code 539 Aux code S6.

I have an 86 in that colour. Didn't like it at first, loved my first 911 in Guards Red. But, its grown on me. or maybe I'm getting old lol

my 85 targa is that color. I have been considering Casablanca beige metallic for my 930, but it is close to the white gold, so may go another direction. cobalt?

good luck. it will be a while before I reach the point of having the paint started. want to get any fitment and mods/welding done first.

The paint tag was gone,but the kardex says 944-9-3
If look at the pics you see a big difference in tone,at the paint shop and my place.
Outside it has a very light green hue to which i do not really like,but they tell me its correct to this code.



I the one year waiting time we worked on various parts that now are just a bolt on.





The front sway bar was gone and replaced whit after market stuff.
Pelicans helped me on pretty much all nla parts.
The sway bar i got from Scott and the arms etc from Greg
I think i will remove the discs again and use some zinc spray to avoid rust.

Yes platinum metallic, paint code 944. Wonderful color, yes a green hue in the light. Congrats, keep us posted on the work. Ironically my right rear bearing just went out after 40 years on my '77, incredible.

Thx Tony
Got some questions about the black finish in the wheel wells.
As far as i know and what i have on hand,75 and 76 black low structure body shutz.
Only for the wells,inside fenders more stucture and bodycolor.
77 more stucture on wells,and all body color.
Here some pics of the very low miles Marshall&Goldman car,as far i know untouched car.

Work a bit on the interiour this weekend.
The sportseats needed work,had the missing nla pieces made.
The cables where broken,and the back support bottom plastic support where missing.
I have seen some very nice restored seats that where missing these,giving a inch play in the back support.
The missing bolt is under cnc.

If you have any extras, I'd be very interested in four of those rubber bumpers for the seat back brackets!

Dave,
Great project. I in the middle of a similar one myself- 9306800094 76 930 rescue project

As far as the black shutz - we are having a conversation about that topic right now- 930 Turbo Carrera - Page 335 - FerrariChat.com

I am being told that fender wells should be body color but I have seen many that are not. I have been told that black is aged cosmoline but I'm not 100 %. I'd love to hear a definitive answer from an expert.

Cheers

Phil

No probs,let me finalize the seats.
If i am sure it works and stays intact i can ask the shop to supply a set.

Hi Phil
Very nice color project you have!
Regarding the shutz,for sure we can learn from other input.
From what i have seen till now the innerwell is black for the 75/76.
If you look at the last 75'post at Fchat you can still see the black residue together whit the black swaybar arm.
I think it might be high pressure cleaned of over the years?
But of cause it could be cosmoline.
Thx Dave

Spend way to much time on the loom.
We went trough the complete loom and repaired all the wires that where crisp.
Had great help from Pelican Timmy2 Building SC and Mid Year Engine Harnesses
got a new engine loom from him and he was very helpful whit the missing rubbers and correct wire etc.
getting the loom in whit all the new cables is a tight task.

The oil tank was pretty rusty,did not want to use car paint on it.
Made the choice to use a epoxy treatment on it,which means sand blasting.
To avoid sand in the tank we made adapters to close everything.
