I put on some epoxy primer on my ‘79 before it gets too cold.

A few more baby steps.

Received my heat seater harness. Built by our very own electrical guru/Jedi Master..... timmy2. Great guy too, so that makes us Pelicans a flock of lucky birds.

Swapped out my amber front turn signal lenses for a pair of clear with Spokes amber LED's/white DLR's




Also finished up the heated seat switch's mounting point. Just needed some black aluminum angle, SS hardware, door edging and a grommet.

Good luck

Well, after waiting for many weeks and not seeing any activity on the tracking webpage, I contacted Car Bone and they re-sent the order using UPS this time. I should get the package early next week. Excellent customer service from these cool guys!

That's great to hear! I have no doubt that had they realized your stickers were MIA, they would have sent another set uber quick.

Great bunch of guys and team with superior customer service and follow up.

Summer/Fall Update

Drained out temp tranny fluid and filled with Mobil Delvac-very nice

Went to Porsche Parade and within 15 minutes of my arrival, while I was inside registering I received this little gem



Guy in Ford F150 from across the street (in the shadows) backed over me




Actually did some decent displacement-black tape placed on deck lid by me





Before it went to the body shop, I had Doug Hillius aka "The Dent Whisperer" at Dent Solutions in Bellevue remove all dings from the whole car. Perfect and worth every penny

Got it repaired by Mark and Nick at Eurotech Bodywerkes in Totem Lake, WA-paint and body look fantastic-makes me wish I sprayed the whole car. Don't have a decent picture of the finished work for whatever reason.

Recently installed new outer window felt and window squeegees on both doors. I can confirm with trimming and moving the steel button, coupe window felt works in a targa just fine. And at 1/4 the cost of proper targa felt!

Ordered and installed Matt Kellett rear speaker surrounds. Awesome product and worth every penny.






Just last night finished up with targa body braces-truly a one beer job!

And finally capped off the summer moving into fall with permanent registration with this restored plate in back and an old german delivery plate in front.

Took the exhaust off my 3.0 SC engine. Now this is the third time that I've taken a 911 exhaust off. All three times I didn't need any heat or anything. The nuts just broke loose. So again no broken head studs





Then I wanted to get the smog injectors out. Looking at them I thought that would be hard.



But the also came out pretty easy.





So I'm happy

Yes, built the chassis dolly a few years ago. Knocks down into 3 piece for storage. Works great.

Rebuilt my engine compartment heater blower! Had 12v to it but wouldn't work. Soldered in the new bits and boom. Works now.

That is bad a$$. Any chance you might still have the plans or are willing to share? Always looking for ways to hone my self taught welding prior to panel replacement.
