Yes, Harvey does do a fine job. Are hose are RSR finish, and not just regular anodizing? The rims look to be matte, but the spokes look less so, like the rim edge. My RSRs are very matte everywhere except for the rim edge. Well, and the black painted areas, of course.

Regardless of all that, very nice. And oh so greeeennn...

What's with the blue dot? A paint mark put there by your balancer? And isn't the yellow dot supposed to be aligned with the valve stem? Small points , literally! Great wheels...

I don't have a website yet and need to move forward on this. I have been brain storming ideas on design and functionality. I don't want to rush into this project since it's a very important one. One idea I'm having is a site with a throw back vintage vibe...but yet functional and useful for my perspective clients. I have all these ideas stuffed in my brain and need to release them on paper still. I definately want to keep being transparent with my projects via blog or other means...I like the fact that people know up front what kind of craftsmanship they will be getting...no surprises! I'm open for suggestion guys....

I don't know the answer. The tires were mounted by the master himself, Harvey.

Harvey, can you chime in? thanks,

Way to go Freddie!!!! Very well deserved. Now where are my custom faired-in taillights?

Best of luck, you earned all the good things that are coming your way my friend.

Steve:

Are the wheels 7 and 8's? What tire size are you running in the front?

Man, that car is gorgeous! I would almost be too afraid to drive it now!

Very, very nice work. Flawless!

The 74' Carrera brings back bitter/sweet memories, I purchased a beautiful floor demo at Westwood Porsche Audi with less than 4,000 miles, it was white in color. Had it for two years and was later stolen by some 18 year old punk. The car was recovered by the San Fernando Fire Department as the thief almost torched his home while cutting my 911 apart, they found him with the mask and torch still in his hands when they broke into the house, not to mention the Lambo engine and transaxle that was on a dolly. Oh well...

Yes the wheels 15's 7 & 8's. I also kept all four of my original 6 & 7's that are all date-matched 8/73. The 7's on the car now are dated 3/74 and the 8's are dated 10/73 & 11/73.

I know what you mean about being afraid to drive it since restoring it to such a high level, but with the brand new motor as well, I need to put some miles on it to break it in. The car will, however, be maintained to a high level. Just ask anyone who has seen my 914-6 that I have owned for nearly 20 years.

The dots are guides, not absolutes. The (often yellow or red) dot should be the lightest part of the tire. If you know the heaviest part of the wheel, you can put the lightest part of the tire there. It is not always the valve stem.
This will allow you to use the least amount of weights on the wheel.

You are correct. They were done in an RS finish. You have a very keen eye.

Congratulations Freddie on the re-construction of such a beautiful car. Congratulations Steve on being the lucky guy to have it in your garage.

Can we see more pics of the interior, under the hood, etc.
