10 yr toy
914--->6gt replica 2.8 twin plug
Accuired in 2000, it was my second car that started my love for Porsche automobiles across the board. I rebuilt the 1.8L L-Jet engine, but had to install Webers on it because the mechanics cost way too much to try and repair the bosch system. Rebuilt the motor a second time with more upgrades, but that only lasted a couple more years. I purchased a 72E engine in pieces from a friend, and rebuilt it.
All body work I did at a local JC. all rust removed, fiberglass flares, painted guards red.
911 dash, Sparco roadster seats, carbon dash inserts and door cards. I stitched the fake swade for dash cover, tunnel, hack rest, door card top, etc with red double stitch. Every latch, window crank, moving part, nut, bolt, switch, EVERYTHING I have pulled apart, inspected, cleaned, lubed, assembled.
8pt chromoly cage, fabricated and welded by me. All wiring repaired from corrosion, all new ends crimped on, heat shrink, turn signal housings refurbished and painted, etc. Not really a performance, but pretty.
My aluminum oil tank, modified with OEM oil level sensor and aluminum heat sink welded to the back. I made a mandrel bender for bending 22mm (.875") 1mm wall tubing for making oil lines. NC machined end fittings to silver solder onto the lines. GT oil cooling kit yet to be completed in front trunk.
New custom fuel lines with Cohline fuel fittings soldered on, braided lines.
