Nicely executed build. Simple, tasteful and completely yours.

Love the ITB adapters and manifold setup.

I am curious about the shroud around the air filter. Very different. Usually the filter is left open.

This is the type of build that resonates with me. Very close to stock with tasteful changes. I know it’s just a frunk, but that’s one of the most sorted and best looking frunk’s I’ve seen. Your wife think about selling completed perlon kits or share the pattern? It makes the story that much better that both you and your wife worked on it together. Great story and outcome!

Nicely executed!

I'll be using some of your creative ideas. Great idea for the Perlon behind the Rennline in the frunk, I did that in the interior passenger side. Beautiful and unique work. Please post some more pictures of your interior!

I agree, it finished off the front trunk like it should have been from the factory!

Hi, It looked naked with just the filter. The shroud, I think gives it character and acts as a sort of rain cap.The Porsche Emblem was just an inexpensive eBay item that was silver and I painted in the black. I then curved it to fit the profile of the shroud.

Hi, and thank you for the kind words. Made my wife very proud. Yes, the Frunk to me has always looked like an unkept bed. Very Frumpy. I think we take it for granted today that almost all cars are so well sorted out in many areas. Unfortunately I did not keep any patterns as this was just something I wanted to do. And my wife has learned to go down the rabbit hole with me to see what's on the other side. Her input is always valued. But, if it helps, I can de-construct the Frunk this weekend and start a thread with detailed pictures of how it all goes together.

The whole time I thought of doing all of this I went back to my youth and kept thinking what would I do back in the '70's if all this new stuff was available.

I also plan to make up some custom visors, aluminum window cranks and switch inserts. And will post if there is interest.

Andy

Again, your attention to detail is amazing. Everything you did was so well thought out.

Thanks for sharing the details on your motor. Adapting those TBs and the manifold to your 3,0, nicely done.

And the heater delete, wow.

Headlights were inexpensive and easier than I thought. I originally planned to use all of my existing H4 assembly. But, soon found out that it was to small to hold the new LED. So I purchased some VW assemblies and ended up using my original H4 Chrome ring and trim ring as they fit much, much, better on the car than the ones supplied with VW assembly. These use Osram technology instead of CREE. And seem to be a bit stronger.
These came with DRL that turn Amber when the turn signal is applied.

Again I have to thank my wife for taking all the uploaded Pic's. She would check in the garage every now and than to see what I was up to. I've never been a very good chronicler.

Found Pic's when I bought it

I had been looking for six months. The car was on a local CL ad under the title "porsche". No "911", all lower case. I was searching under "911" and would have never had found it had I not typed just "Porsche".The ad had just been placed. The car was less than 60 minutes away. Up in the hills of Santa Cruz(Doobie Bro's Turf) and was part of a collection the seller had bought. The car had 2 owners. the second owner in the early 80's added the steel flares, Carrera tail, BBS wheels and Pirelli P7 tires and painted it the Guards Red. Oh, and also added a stupid Clifford Alarm. Which was the first to go. Originally a yellow color 911s 2.7 with dealer installed A/C. The only really mechanical thing wrong was a bad Alternator. The rest of car was rust free and had a ratty Tan interior. Never driven a 911, Fell in love with it as it reminded me of the "turbo" I had lusted for in my teens. When we would go to Carmel, to see the what the rich folk were driving. The other big reason being a lover of Porsche since going to Laguna Seca starting as young boy.








And this was the seller. "Dutch" a retired NASA Engineer who was amazing and brilliant!
