Doug,
I like the new car and the thought of a new project... I am current looking for a 72 tub for my next project, not that my first one is done yet but.

On my current 72 I just changed the rear plates and T bars(29s) and (22s up front). I really like the ride and handling now. I think I am looking for more hp but if I get the other 72 , I will put the Hp in it.

The inside is just about done , I need seats and a harness. i put the RS carpet and the RS door panels. I also removed the AC/Radio stuff and made a new plate for that spot.

I still need to put the brake cool kit on I have for the updated brake in the front, and then some h4s as well

Have you ever heard the phrase "gilding a lilly", or in todays vocabulary..."bling an already beautiful object". I'd say leave it alone...except upgrade suspension bushings, do all the maintenance that has been neglected and replace anything that is worn out. That alone will keep you busy for a while. I like to keep them as close to original as possible or the other extreme-all out mods. It's a beautiful car don't molest it!

Hey Derek! I've been kinda watching for your updates, etc. Your car is looking great!

I'm going to be fighting my urge to make this more than I can afford to right now. I had BIG plans for the '72. I'm hoping by not having quite so big of plans for this one, I'll actually accomplish something.

Of course, it helps that this is a fully running and operating car!

I can't argue with that Biff. I'm not intending to do irreperable damage to the car, by any means. And truthfully my funds probably won't allow me to do much anyway. But I'm one who has to have it personalized just a bit...something to make it "mine"...so it's going to get something. I promise not to make it too outlandish! ...and I will for certain "do it right" and keep it very factory looking.

Hey guys, does anyone have any pictures showing the 911R turn signals and tail lights? I hear of this upgrade all the time, but honestly, I don't know the differences between the R lights/signals & the stock stuff that was put on the car from the factory.
Happy Friday....this is a great post.
Kyle.

Standard 15X7's look great. But another option is Harvey Weidman is now making 7R replicas out of deep 6's. That would be great for more of a "sleeper" look.

Where's Dino, Jim? Ahh, here it is!



I think it's safe to call it a hot-rod now. Is the engine back in yet? BTW, I replied to your PM...

Here is my brown "t%r$." after a couple of off-track events at Willow Springs. It 's a 74 narrow-bodied Targa with a 3.6, 205/55/16 on 16x7 Fuchs in front and 225/55/16 on 16x8 Fuchs in the rear and a couple of suspension goodies. The inside looked worse after the day at the track but it cleaned up pretty nice....
