looks like all our loot is ready for us in Calais... I may head down tomorrow, otherwise I'll go Monday.

I love this thread! A 912 with a 911 swap might just be the best way into an "outlaw" longhood. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for one!

Fellow Atlantic Canadians; I'm looking for a black interior for my SC. Seats, door panels, carpets. Anyone stripping a car down?

Oh well, that was 45 minutes of work productivity that didn't happen this morning. Great thread, great build. Can't wait to see the carpeting and seats fully installed.

Greg,
Tell me more about the underlay material that you've used below the RS carpet kit. Looks like a standard domestic underlay. Car is looking great !
Cheers

Hi James,

Yeah, I just went up to the local Apple Auto glass and picked up a few meters of the standard underlay that they have in stock. It's not the easiest stuff to cut but it does a pretty nice job. Stuck it down with spray on upholstery glue.

Good Luck.

Progress

Made some progress over the last couple of weeks. We have the headliner installed and it looks great. Also installed the hood and fiddled a frigged until the alignment was right and the hood latches perfectly. Stuck the stripe on the front bumper to finish up. Tomorrow, we will pull out the carbon fiber dash and install an original recently purchased. Closing in on this old girl now and Spring is in the air.

Glass in

All the glass is in except the passenger window. I have sent my non matching non tinted window off to California to trade for a tinted one. Thanks to this forum, I found a Pelicanite who had the same missmatch issue I had in reverse.

The carbon fiber dash is out and the original SWB dash is in, I love it! Thanks Neil.

Lots of fiddling and fabrication work left to do on the interior trim bits and then the seats and roll bar will go in. I can't wait to get the seats in. I don't think my pictures are doing the car justice, it really looks awesome.

Holy crap...I just finished re-reading this whole thread and I can not believe the car you started with looks so incredible now. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Thanks Rich, I had a picture of your car as my screen saver for at least a year before I started this project. It was my admiration and obsession for your car that made me take the leap. Looking back, I started with an absolute piece of crap. I did know it at the time but my buddy Larry convinced me it was possible to make a silk purse out of a pig's ear. It's a piecemeal car with neat stuff from many different years. As such, it's likely not to everyone's taste but I am gonna love it as much as my bone stock, numbers matching 356 T6.

Speaking of Larry, he really is a genius. He has more patience, when it comes to doing things right and restoring old cars, than anyone I know. For everything else, he has exactly zero patience. We trade barbs and insults and bicker back and forth like an old married couple almost every Saturday and Sunday morning from 7-8 in the morning to 12-1ish. I think we are slowing down because we don't know what we are gonna do when the project is done. We may need couple's councelling. Can you do that on Saturday mornings ?

I think it's so cool that my little mongrel '66 could inspire someone...thanks.

Sounds like Larry is your OBI. I have a friend, Skip, who accuses me of being his Official Bad Influence. Everybody needs an OBI to help push the envelope.

Update on "Hurley"

We have been a little distracted this spring getting our E36 ready for the racing season and I picked up a 1988 928S4 to use as a driver. Like all 928's it needed a little sorting. So we would just pick away a little here and a little there on the 1968 which I have now named "Hurley".

This past weekend we put on a bit of a spurt and I realized it was time to post an update.

One of the milestones reached was the installation of the seats. I have been looking forward to that for quite a while. It's a little hard to get far enough away to get decent pictures but here goes. The leather is so thick and plush...thanks Wilson Brothers. The early Recaro sport seats are awesomely comfy, even for my 49 year old , mature butt. i dont think these pic's do them justice.

Update on "Hurley" con't

The rear parcel shelf worked out very nice. I had carpet that came with the RS carpet kit but we decided to instal the vinyl rear parcel shelf out of one of the '73 parts car we had. It was a little deformed on each of the rear corners but the deformity was symmetrical so we decided it looked quite nice. The vinyl as opposed to carpet breaks up the textures and looks great with the rear seat delete and the roll bar.

Here's the pics.

Update on "Hurley" con't

I painted a set of non matching aluminium floorboards with Krylon BBQ paint and installed them. We did not have the original wooden ones to go under the carpet. I installed the Rennshift 901 shifter and mounted it flush on top of the carpet. I have used Rennshift in two other 911's and I love how it firms up the linkage and feel. I also love the purposeful look of this thing with just the very small boot between the shifter and the base. This was another piece that I could't wait to install. I have an aluminium dead pedal that will get the same Krylon paint and get installed soon. If the paint wears off too quickly, I may need to consider powder coating down the road. I have the SWB trim/knee pad that goes along the bottom of the dash... it just requires a little foam and leather applied prior to installation. Oh yeah, also in the pictue you can see the original dash I picked up from another Pelican member. I have abandoned the carbon fiber piece I had considered covering and installing.

Update on "Hurley" con't

It's hard to see in the pictures but the trim that finishes off the edges between the carpet and the windows was salvaged from parts cars, stripped to metal and recovered with leather donated to the cause by "tshebib" another member. The pieces that go between the carpet and the door closure were fabricated from scratch by Larry and covered with the same leather. It really came out nice. You can see in these pics as well the Roll Bar is a pretty tight fit. I don't even want to tell you how hard it was to bolt in after the underlay and carpet was installed. I am a bit of a wuss but it was an absolute PITA.

Distraction

Here's the 928 S4 that diverted my attention. These things can be had for stupid money. I'm just not sure how much "stupid money" it takes to keep them running. 139,000 kms or apx. 85,000 miles on the odo. Just had timing belt and water pump done prior to purchase. I updated the wheels, painted the calipers and re-painted the nose so far. I've put 2000kms on it and everything works except it has no A/C. I'm gonna drive it for a while before I commit the kinda money an A/C refresh would suck outta my pocket. I'm an air cooled guy but I must say these things haul Azz.

Hi Andy, I see you have a GTI. I just last year sold a 2010. I have to tell you I installed the APR Stage 1 tuning software (apx. $600) and it transformed the car with no mileage penalty under regular driving. I wish you could buy that cheap of an upgrade for these old Porsches. I see you want an 87-89 Porsche but in my experience a well sorted 915 transmission works great. I wouldn't rule out the 84-86 Carerras.

Fabulous thread! I'm so sorry I missed it up 'til now...

I'm at the end of a similar journey with my old '69 - did everything myself as well. There's a link to my work in my signature

Coincidently I've just bought a 68 coupe for development to a historic 2.0 race car which will take some cues from a very famous '68 racing 911 here in Australia - the Hamilton T/R. Your car looks very similar
