Both my son and now my daughter attended college right across the street from the space and rocket center. It's an amazing town with brilliant people everywhere. I have friends who piloted the SR-71 and others who designed and built parts that put the space shuttle into orbit. The aerospace machinists have some incredible equipment at their disposal. NLA parts are not an issue when the shop is restoring a 356 or machining a 1/2" perfectly balanced spacer for a set of 13.25" Fuch 3-piece wheels. Everything looks like jewelry with crazy tolerance levels. Unfortunately it is too expensive to be practical, but hey there isn't much practical about a high powered 930 anyway so what the heck! This is the build I have been waiting for years to do and I'm really exited about it. You never do it alone as no one was born knowing these things, I am blessed to have so many knowledgeable folks helping out. Glad to share it with you guys, many who have been there and done that.
