Why are the roof skin and fenders missing? Was the car used as a donor for some replacement panels? Reason I ask is because your pictures of the car on the flatbed truck are a bit different than those posted by Wayne in his albatross/ebay thread.

That is one heck of a project you're undertaking. I agree it's really cool to get your hands on a real 959. However some pieces are going to be extremely difficult to obtain or re-create. So here's a wholehearted good luck to you! I look forward to seeing the car progressively disassembled and go back together. Like others said, DO NOT hesitate to share pictures & ask questions. We'll all chime in with uneducated guesses and learn through your progress!

rebuilding Porsche 959

Hi.
The roof skin and fender is missing because it has been taken off. The bodyframe needs work to it as you probably see and Porsche Classis wants to have it as clean as possible before starting working on it.

Would be nice to have a crossthread for your project on the porsche club norway messageboards if you're a member?

Great project. It would be fascinating to see how the factory straightens the tub.

rebuilding Porsche 959

Hello Gents.
Thanks a lot for all your gratings to the project. It`s needed at times, but today has been a good day. Managed to fix two items that can now be put in the shelf until assembling

I fixed the cluster for the brake, clutch and gas pedal. It was quite bent out of shape


Here is the result:


I also fixed an electronic box for the vibration damper. I hope it will work.
It sits on the left side a post under the dash, just by the handle for the opening of the hood. The steel frame had received som damage and the plastic housing. But you can do a lot with a heat gun on plastic. It ended up pretty much as new to honest



The price on that darn box is 2000 dollars, not to bad actually. But likel no longer available.

Here is the next project over the weekend:


The air fiter box is missing a little piece and had a crack in it. It is painted so I think I will be able to weld in a plastic piece and get it back iin shape. Though i might get a new one.
I will forward thanks to all of you posting parts on the project, that is very much appreciated.

Roar

Here is the result on the box.
I have a good friend that is a avionic mechanic on helicopter so I will ask him to check my boxes before installing them in the car.



I try to finish a piece every day I work on the car such that I can put them away. My garage is at the moment a bit off a mess with to many parts laying around.....
