Not something I'd do but I suggest you inlet the keeper and use a flat headed screw...that looks a bit Bubba as is.

Ugly and unnecessary......I would never drill a hole in my fender like that on a street car.

I had H4s in on 911SC and autocrossed it and drove it hard on the road for years and years with nary an issue. That's a "solution" in search of a problem.

Strange, I cannot get the ring to come off and as such cannot access my light. Couldn’t have guessed that the light actually falling out is a concern.

I adjusted the valves on my race engine and replaced the two O2 sensors. Fun, fun!

I just installed helper springs on all four corners and lowered the front ride height a little less than 1/4".



Yes, I made allowances for how thick the helper springs and divider are when compressed.

Clayed my cab because my handyman did some painting and didn't bag the cars. I haven't gotten his bill yet, so he will get an earful. Need to check the other cars.

Stupid led instrument bulbs .....

I removed all the gauges and replaced the bulbs with Carmagic vintage LED's. What an improvement!





I also dug in and replaced the shifter bushings. The ball cap and the tunnel bushing. The coupler was replaced about 7 years and 6,000 miles ago and couldn't detect any significant wear so I left that as is. Pretty proud of myself as I was really nervous about doing the coupler adjustment. Psyched I tackled another project! Next up is the pedal cluster rebuild!




When all is said and done, the car shifts exactly as it did before. The bushings were in decent shape but I had them and was already in there so why not refresh them? I guess this is just the way a 915 feels. I might play with the coupler a little and try and fine tune it but at least everything in there will be good to go for a while now.



I think the wifey got a little nervous when she popped her head in the garage and saw this!

I will say a prayer for you.

Well worth the effort though.

I did mine, I'm a different person now.

I was told on another thread by a well respected Pelicanite that doing your pedal cluster is a right of passage for air cooled 911 owners and I took it to heart. Ordered all of the bushings and springs as well as new pedals and floor plate from Rennlist so I'm eager to get started. This will happen of the X-Mas weekend. Wish me luck!

It's not too bad. Some good writeups online. If you don't have a roll pin punch, I'd suggest getting one. This is the set that I got. Works great. https://www.amazon.com/TuffMan-Tools-Pin-Punch-9pc/dp/B01F5JC2I8 Used it on the front Bilstein inserts too.

I also bought a new clutch clevis pin and clevis fork for the clutch cable but was able to reuse the old ones. You will want to inspect the clutch pedal shaft too. Good luck!

Removed the rocker panels in preparation for new spring plate bushings, sway bar bushings and end links. Not sure if I like the exposed look or not but it "feels" faster haha

It was ~80 degrees on Tuesday and it just so happened that I got both my 911s (and my M5) out for some exercise...





That was a GOOD day.

It's been a pretty killer week so far. SoCal Porsche Life for the win.
