Thank you, that appears to be correct!

Finished stripping the car as much as possible over the past few weeks.

It was good enough to be taken to my body guy for body work and eventually paint, so off it went.

In the mean time Iíve sourced most of the body panels and a few other bits and bobs. Those will be off to the body guy as well soon and then Iíll be starting to look for front and rear suspension parts. Looking to turn it into a roller by the time itís back from paint, hopefully in a few months time.

Just tear the wire out of the headliner. Either mobile phone or radar detector and definitely non-stock.

Wonderful project. Please keep posting your progress. And congrats on your first Porsche.

Oops pretty sure wire by mirror is for temp sensor and goes to climate control box just behind ebrake. Love some of the advice on here

Looked up the schematic and appears you are correct :eek:
Looks like I need to buy some more parts...

Donít have the actual sensor, only the holder thingy and the wire (which I might have thrown out).

nathanbs 11-03-2018 03:18 PM

It’s just annoying that someone very confidently states take it out it’s non-original, throw it away.

ChieftanMews 11-07-2018 06:03 AM

Anyone know where I might be able to find a complete new brake line kit for front and rear? Googled but nothing comes up for the SC models.

Are you talking about the flexible hoses

or the hard lines?

Or are you looking for a set that contains all of them?

Yeah hard lines, set that contains all of them.

Same for fuel lines, but I already found a guy on here that does them.

To be considered:
993 mirrors look better than the flag type.
16 inch wheels don't have many tire options, 18 inch wheels have more tire options.
930 M/C & Carrera brake calipers front & rear with the thicker Carrera rotors too.
Steel braided brake lines instead of OEM rubber.
Carrera front sway bar for wrestling that future 3.2L around.

Interesting perspective. I would do none of these, but my driving may be different from yours. I do mostly two-lanes and no track time.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Iím going to stick with the stock mirrors and wheels, I actually think it looks better that way. But Iíll definitely be looking into some easy upgrades like better brakes as long as they are easy upgrades to do on my 1980.

I found a parts car from 78 but will probably have to cherry pick parts from it.

In you guys’ opinion, what are some of the parts I should be going after that are usually harder to find?

ChieftanMews 06-06-2019 12:17 AM

Some work was done to the body over the past few months.

Stripped from 3-5 layers of paint:

And done up in epoxy primer:

Over the next few weeks some bodywork will be done to undo some not-so-well-done repairs and re-do them properly. Then hopefully some time this summer it'll get its original color back!

from what you have written I think you will love the build and finding the parts .
you get to make new friends and watch your baby grow .
It's tough to put a price on that .
I have projects as well
have fun

I've recently picked up a '77, pretty much about what you got, a shell... I'll be watching your build up for sure! Tim
