Decided on 964-ish custom ground cams...

Pulled the headlights, H5s to clean the inside (one was foggy) and change bulbs.

Thanks Pelican for the DIY thread on this.

Happiness is finding a small whale tail bolt that I lost over a month ago. Found it while tidying up my shop. Wasn’t looking for it and then there it was. Love that feeling!

Re-did the fuse box wiring, still working on the fuel pump harness. Currently (no pun intended) testing all the connections with VOM before hooking up the battery and then will test all lights, starter and ignition (also built a replacement engine harness). If everything checks out, will tuck all the wiring behind the base and button it down.

From this:




Everything labelled and pulled apart:




And most everything connected back into the new ATO fuse blocks:



Next up: re-install fuel tank and hookup fuel and vent lines, and pre-test fuel system before startup. Won’t be long now...

Organized the last 4 owners, 41 years of receipts, in a binder...in chronological order.

Did some wet sanding and buffing... I always somehow convince myself that this time it will be easier. It's never easy. Results are good though...

Very nice! I'm assuming that your beauty is the one that had a momentary lapse while in Pt Reyes Station with Grant & crew earlier this year?! I'm looking forward to putting my camera on her one day...

Pulled the tag lights out. I thought I would restore them but they are too far gone. Pulled the idle jets and checked for blockages. Removed the old fuel filter and a 10 micron fuel filter

What paint is this? Water base? Beautifully done. I am going to repaint my 75 911s to original black and wanted to buy paints from Eastwood

I drove as fast as I could in the rain to get the underside clean.

Thanks! Nope. It's not been out to Marin yet. Going this week though to take pictures. It's likely going on BaT soon...

I believe it's water-based Glasurit. Surprising hard to wet sand. I was led to believe water-based was softer paint. Not this stuff...

There are a few of us north of the GGB that may be able to help you shake it down and snap some shots so please raise your hand (PM) if you want some company...

OH it doesn't need any shakedown. Runs incredibly well. Shocking how much faster it is than my built 3.8L. I'll be out at Limantour beach road early (dawn) Monday am for pics and in Pt Reyes afterwards if you find yourself out there. Also hitting Easy's next Sat.

Sounds like you've got a very special 911!

I work from home office in Pt Reyes Station and unfortunately I'm starting very early Monday AM with my colleagues overseas.

It looks like it is foggy at Limintour today but the fog is supposed to begin mixing out early on Monday so you may get some great light!

I wish that I had the time to make to Easys but that may not happen until the following month. A number of us (3 x 997 + a 993) will be rolling from Half Moon Bay on May 6 to Coalinga and back if you want to join...
