tonight's post - more bodywork

So, at this stage the floor pans are in and the car is starting to be more structurally sound. Time was taken to seam weld the floors for more stiffness. Time to move on to other areas.

more welding

I promise, this stuff will look a lot better after the grinder his it and then media blasting. Here's some more of the rough work. It sure is a lot easier and quicker to post the pics than it was to do.

Prepping for the 72 oil tank - getting more excited.

Getting set up for the flat six

moving the tub to work on a different project for a break from rust

a couple quick shots of my diversion

OK I felt the urge to look at, and spend money on, something that wasn't a rusty old piece of junk from 68. This was the diversion. I know, this project belongs on a different forum.

Started with this.

Ended with this.

Greg - great project! Couple of ideas for you - Not sure your plans for the gas tank but I sandblasted mine and put a good heavy coat of grey Wurth SKS (used a Shutz gun). Available here - Wurth SKS Stone Guard - 8900301, 8900311, 8900321 . On your rear shock supports, if going to coilovers I would add a bar between the two towers to tie them together. Can never make that area too stiff..

Hey Gary, thanks of the tip on the Wurth for the tank. I had not considered coil overs in the back. Is that a difficult modification? I am open to any and all suggestions. Thanks, Greg

Honestly not sure on that car, I assumed that you had reinforced the towers because you already had it planned! I bet Grady Clay would know, drop him a note. It would eliminate the torsion tube and any interior work it may need. I'm just not sure the old style trailing arms are good for the stress the CO's would place on the shock area.

Back to the 68

I think I took a break all through the winter of 2009-2010 to do the 356B but i got back at the 68 in the fall of 2010. More progress shots.

A decision made. I had picked up a set of 911r hella tail lights but I decided to stay with the stock lamps. I used the 911r lamps with a used fiberglass bumper purchased from Jeff Alton on my 82 track car instead. I always loved the 72 oil tank placement and wanted that on my car but I decided to go with the stock cover instead of the exposed 911r look. I thought it was cleaner and would match the look I was after with the stock signal and tail lamps.



We cut holes and welded in nuts, then ground of flush to accept a bolted in roll bar.


I also spent forever heating and scraping all the original sound deadening material out of the car. That job really sucked. It was almost heartbreaking when it came time to spray it all back in again but that part comes later.

There should be a special place in Porsche heaven for people who restore basket cases to works of art.

You and your buddy are definitely going to get the single family home versus the 2/2 Condo
in Porsche heaven for this rescue. What a piece to start off with. The proverbial tub being held
together with rust. Worst I have ever seen. That 356B looks awesome. How much did you pick it
up for? Subscribed.

Thanks for all the encouraging words. I really appreciate it. Even as I am posting this build story, I can't believe how bad that old tub was. I'm not sure if we ( Greg and buddy, Larry) should be embarrassed or proud. Truthfully, I guess i'm embarrassed by how proud I am. This Porsche thing is like a disease. The disease lay dormant in my cells from the age of about 12 to 24 when I just gawked and read everything I could find on 911's. Then at 24 I bought a 1979 911SC , Euro spec, Arrow Blue, no sunroof... wish I still had that one. Since then I think I have been terminal within this Porsche sickness and I have even infected a few others ( Larry's now terminal ). I am comforted to know it rarely kills, but I hear divorce can occur if not managed properly.

Awesome work! While you have the 912 apart read THIS thread and consider reinforcing the torsion tube. Now would be the time to do it.

Thanks DaveE,

My tube looked pretty good internally but it is 43 years old. I will be watching the repair thread and consider strengthening the tube. The car will likely not be tracked hard or ever wear r rated or slicks but I take anything Grady says very seriously. Thanks for the heads up.

Here are some more Rust repairs

I appreciate the kind thoughts and I am looking forward to special consideration from St. Peter some day. I'll likely need an angle just to sneak past him. I am anxious to get on to some better pictures of the media blasting and priming but it would be disrespectful and unfair to the god of oxidation to not show a few more of the spots we repaired.







There's lots more, if you can believe it.

I confess, Larry did the welding. My job was to follow him with the grinder. I was using a big ass grinder that was born sometime in the 80's. It would vibrate just enough to take all the feelings out of my hands in 10-15 minutes of steady use. You haven't lived until you have all your weight on your right elbow holding and stretching your left hand into a tight space holding an old heavy beast of a grinder and the only thing to take away the hand numbing vibrations are the metal burrs that you keep dragging the back of your hand back and forth across. You just stare at the scars and blood forming on your hand and pray that maybe the old grinder will experience an electrical short to knock you on your ass and make the hole experience come to a dramatic but peaceful end. Damn, it was fun !
