thanks derrick. this means i'm finally digging into that '74, stripping it as we speak. it goes in for metal work/paint end of next month. i love gulf blue, but i think it looks a lot better on longhoods. and the lime green is SO 1974.

have you started your '74?

steve, i've seen your car and, frankly, that's what i have in mind. lime green with bright trim. it's a good look...

Well I’m certainly biased, but I think you’re making a great choice!

This 911 has to be seen to be believed. The pix don't do it justice and the pix are great. Brooke knows how to build....excellent vision and execution.

It's out of storage and in my garage, but no.

I'm debating pulling the ugly 964 skirts off, installing some rear wheels spacers, de-cheesing it a little, and letting my friend drive it to Rennsport.
But all that is only if time permits.

Do the SC backdates have the same proportions (front fender) as 69-73 long hood with RS flares? I am trying to find a conclusive photo of a wide rear and narrow front.

Still some details to finish up, but nearly there. '79 SC backdate, fabricated steel "R" tail lights, sunroof delete, and some other steel mods. Engine is 3.2 short stroke, upgraded internals, 10.5:1, twin plug, RSR high butterflies adapted to EFI. Under 2200 lbs.

Jose_JGC's car provided me inspiration while I was re-backdating my '72 Tangerine Targa 3.6.
https://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/846706-glasurit-single-stage-paint.html

I hope I can pay it forward and inspire you. The Glasurit paint was not cheap, but I LOVE how it turned out.
