Thanks Solamar - the driver side regulator operates smoothly and much quicker than the passenger side so I suspect it was replaced at some point - I will look around next time I open up the door

Much appreciated Pedro - the paint photographs better than it actually is

Normal stuff, mine are unequal as well - as are many. Gives it character imo.

Thanks Jason. I do enjoy the quarks of these cars. Way more interesting to own than the e36 M3.

1982 911SC Targa - my Porsche journey begins

Wheel adapters and jack pad showed up a day early so I jumped on installing them. Had to be the most rewarding <1hr project I have ever done.

Before:

After:



Also found the source of my slight oil drop - return line(?) connection in the passenger wheel well - guess this goes on the list to research

Also have the car scheduled to get the hood painted and the rest of the paint touched up and buffed out the following week.

Today I pulled off the drivers side door card to chase a rattle. Didn’t find anything loose but did pull these two pieces out of the bottom of the door shell. Any insight into what they are and if they might be part of the rattle issue?

Schloer2,

Where did you get the adapters and studs from?

Rolled the dice on these 1” billet adapters from ezaccessory.com - wanted a full inch (vs 21mm) to help fill out the passenger side and at only $75 (shipped) these were worth trying out - I’m happy with them.

Very nice!! Do you happen to know what the paint code or name of the paint is by chance, I have an 1981 that looks exactly like that:<)

Thanks,Steve

Thanks Steve. The color is wine red metallic (code 895) - I think it was only available in ‘81-‘82.

1982 911SC Targa - my Porsche journey begins

Went on vacation immediately after picking the car up from paint so I was excited to drive her to work yesterday and neglected to check the weather - ended up having to stick around the office last night until the storms passed - worth it

1982 911SC Targa - my Porsche journey begins

Finally found time to r&r the crusty old front bumper smile - way bigger PITA than I anticipated. 4 of the 8 bottom screws were rusted to the point the heads stripped so I had to fully remove the bumper so I could get in there with a dremel and grind new groves. Still need to do some clean up work on the bumper before I reinstall but I am already happy to have that rubber eyesore gone.
Before:

After-ish:

Amazing how much the metal reinforcement rusts:

Any reason the bumper has an additional brace on the passenger side - is it just there to protect the oil lines from a fender bender?

At least I had a helper:

I got the bumper reinstalled before the weekend so I was able to put a few miles on her between the rain storms - have noted some clutch shudder when taking off in 1st gear only - guess I will put it up on ramps this weekend and take a look at the motor/trans mounts and clutch adjustment (hopefully its one of those two items and not time for a new clutch!).

I am a complete novice when it comes to wiring so this may be a stupid question: I have the common issue with the turn signal switch and touchy high beams...while I find time to replace the switch is it possible to disconnect the high beam filament in the H4 headlight bulbs or will this just disrupt the circuit and cause the headlights not to work at all?

Did I find the cause of the 1st gear shudder - huge gap at the top side of both transmission mounts? Or is the gap just the result of the concave washer that is supposed to be on top? I will take a closer look after the car cools down.

It seems there is a slew of SC's missing the upper washers. I think I've seen 4 or 5 missing them including my own '83.

Not the source of your chattering take offs in first though. That symptom is from your damaged pressure plate or flywheel- over heated likely. Possible warped too. I just replaced mine when I had the trans off to fix a fifth gear issue. I reused my disc but replaced the flywheel with a Fidanza and the pressure plate with an aluminum Sachs version. My chatter went away after that. Nothing but smooth takeoffs now!

If you can live with it, it isnt something that'll leave you stranded so put it off if you need to.

Thanks pampadori - I suspect you are correct and the issue is clutch related. That said it seems odd that it doesn’t always chatter on take off and all other gears seem to hold strong....does this make sense if it is the pressure plate/flywheel?

Been enjoying the SC a couple days a week in spite of the clutch issue - was planning to hold off until driving season is over to take it in for repair.

Then today it developed a significant exhaust leak - hopefully I can chase it down and repair myself but if it has to go into the shop I will probably go ahead and have the clutch issues addressed at the same time.

Looks like I might get to experience the Porsche tax for the first time.
