Listed a "2.7" and a "2.4" rear deck badge on eBay. Ended up with an extra 2.7 so it's brand new in the bag and the 2.4 is one I removed the other day from my auto.

Cut some .125" aluminum to make new floorboard to replace the wood. Passenger side is done and works well.

I'm redoing the interior - The leather was getting old looking so I purchased some leather dye and am in the process of cleaning it up. In addition to that I replaced the steering wheel - got a great deal on Ebay. The pics are of my 78 911 SC - Cork Leather Interior. I purchased the dye at Worldupholstery.com

Awake.
Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one...

Nice day today, brought the SC off the wheel buckets.
A couple of hours on the charger and starts without a hiccup. Like I had run it the day before only it had been almost 7 months since it was last run. (a bit of smoke on start up)

Quick drive around the neighborhood to shake off a few cobwebs and a short dash up to 5k rpm in 2nd on one of the 4 lane roads running close to the homestead.

Nice to drive it again.

Received 4 German tools in the mail for my tool back. That completes the set. Not all are originals however. Put them in my reproduction tool bag and am a little disappointed by the fit. Hmmmmm... :>(

Sorted out my electrical issue. I established that the clamps on both batteries were not tight and the batteries needed some topping up. Both now remedied. I had issues when the car has failed to start unless I put the charger on for a while before. I reckon it was the act of connecting the charger that disturbed the loose clamps to make a connection.

I also permanently connected up an adaptor (a pair of wires and an in-line plug) that makes it really easy to connect the trickle charger when the car sits in the garage. Now the trickle charger tells me when it is charging and when it is trickling.

I can now go for a drive knowing the car will easily start. When I park up again I can just connect the car up and know that, if it needs a few electrons, it can have them...

Now for all the other jobs I need to do....

Bingo Jerome74911S. That is what is replaced. One I have both sides fabbed, I will get them powder coated black and be done with it.

Today the passenger door was apart for the second time this week.. Window was non- op a few months back. Yesterday I got it working. Then it didn't, so I drove 2.5 hrs with the window down..Had to get home! Today (third time) I went inside the door, checking for frayed wires etc, noticed one of the wires to the motor was disconnected! No way.. That was an easy / lucky find.

What did I do to my 911 today?
Not nearly as much as I had planned to. Installed the rear seat belts and worked on fixing my window regulators. I'm in a holding pattern until my Cab top shims come in and I get the ambition (and a helper) to install my windshield.

Sold my "2.4" deck lid badge on eBay and got paid for it! The brand new 2.7 is still available.

Received a set of Lloyd rubber floor mats today and installed them. The instructions said to mount them directly on the floor boards, but they fit so tight on the new carpeting that I ignored their warning. They ain't movin'.

What did I do? I added an 83 SC coupe to the garage. Cassis Red I believe. Need to strip off the window tint, replace the BBS wheels with Fuchs (Euromeister 7&8s?), change shocks, and service it. That will come shortly, tonight I drove it and added $100 of 94 Chevron. Sorry for the crappy pic.

Nice score. Deserves some "proper" wheels though. BRAID wheels LOL
