nice.
it is especially a debrit-protection from everything that comes flying from the tire.
Also ist blocks off dirt reaching the other side of the oil cooler and prevents it from being clogged.

Right fender completed. Wet sand & polish:







Rewarding to see the paint come back to life!

While the gas tank is out, probably should get after the inside of the frunk lid too.

An update on the tail/stop light housings.

Left side did not have the gasket between housing and back-plate:



This housing also had some damage to it and a missing partition. Cleaned, sandblasted, POR 15 to both the back-plate and housing:



Decided to fabricate the partition from a CD and epoxy in place and then cover with foil:



Right side was in pretty good shape since the gasket between the housing and back-plate was intact. It did need some attention to the reflective surface:



Getting better at burnishing the foil and pretty sure this will be fine.

For the gasket material, found this product which was recommended from a user on this site:



Thanks for following along.

It was recommended to me to use "chrome" spray paint on tail lamps. I tried it on our '64 Plymouth and it worked great. It is not mirror but very reflective!

You are right. Should have used a spray chrome. Have some from Rust-Oleum however, feedback on this has been "it looks silver" and not like the cap on the can.

There is some "Chrome In The Bottle" model builders are spraying with an air brush over a high gloss black or white base and it looks really good, fantastic really. Have some light housing on a couple of my 356s that could use some love and will try the stuff they are using.

Thanks for your note.

Busy day today !
One seat out to fit a new hand-throttle plastic part as the old one had broken. Forgot how heavy the seats are !

Had the SSI's off to clean them out after the car had been sitting for a few years & oil from some old leaks had gotten inside them causing lots of smoke from the vents when they got hot. Refitted them today with new gaskets, nuts & barrel nuts.

Replaced the gear oil with the blue stuff that's been sitting on the shelf for a few years. Nice clean magnet on the drain plug

Painted the exhaust mounting bracket & some of the engine bay tinware that was looking a bit tired.

I think I earned a

Be prepared for race-car like acoustics in your cabin.
It's about to get very noisy - mostly gear, and drive train related.

FWIW, if you upgrade to Spokeworks LED tail lights, brake lights, etc., the don't rely on the housing's reflectivity.

Your work looks satisfying tho!

Weighed M491 tea-tray spoiler base, rubber lip and mounting hardware. 26+ pounds...



Channeled my inner packaging engineer / Tetris master and loaded all of the following into my now former 1988 911 cab: Deconstructed tea-tray tail (decklid, tail base, rubber lip), extra muffler, extra cat, airbox lid frame, extra steering wheel, spare floor mat set, air compressor, top boot and other spare / extra parts...







After a highly successful BaT auction last week (www.bringatrailer.com/listing/1988-porsche-911-carrera-82), the siblings' last morning together, prior to Black Beauty being transported away...



First class cabin on the upper deck with a high falutin' neighbor for the voyage...





Heading to Georgia. Possibly the most California picture ever (and a sign of the California exodus times?)...



BIG. RIG.

Used carboard for making a template then transferred to an aluminum sheet. Cut out with an angle grinder. About 8 total hours of work. It is a MOCAL cooler:

Nothing compared to what you guys have completed by I managed to finish up the replacement of the fuel pump in my 79' SC. A little scary at first because immediately following it was spilling fuel at test. Turned out I had simply not exerted enough pressure to crush the washers around the banjo fitting. Some awesome pelicaners taught me how to jump the relay and run the pump without the engine so I can test more safely. I love this board!

In my Targa I kept the stock carpet but the original insulation has been gone for a while.

I drive with top off 90% of the time and notice very little sound change.

It is a tiny bit louder at a stop sign while idling, but once I get moving the wind noise quickly masks the foundation sound.

The little bit of extra mechanical sounds are just more information to me, pulled the stereo out years ago so there are no conflicts of sound appreciation.

No smoking carpet, so I'm assuming heat transfer from the rear firewall isn't a problem.

I'm running a stock exhaust, and assume sport or lightweight aftermarket exhausts could be extra loud under certain conditions.

I suppose light weight self-adhesive thermal insulation can always be added for the wife later on if need be.

.................................................. ...........................


I ordered some Hylomar Universal Blue Non-Setting Sealant Silicone Jointing Compound for when I find my CIS vacuum leak.

All hoses have been changed except one, but some cap-offs may be leaking (still looking for surging idle cause). The blue goo will be used as a temporary measure until I can order the proper replacement parts from Pelican and perhaps do a partial or full engine drop to attend to leaks, both air and oil based.

Non-setting and Non-hardening

I also ordered a fabric swatch for my car seats, going to do some cushion inserts. The fabric is more for church pew seating but so much less in cost than from Germany Porsche cloth, so I have to at least explore the possibility of using it.

.................................................. .......

A few days ago I helped diagnose my neighbor's 3.2 MFI issue, he recently installed an Air Fuel Ratio meter and is getting the car re-chipped, but needs a base reading.

One side is running lean so his base readings are off.

I told him about my experience chasing CIS leaks and told him about the propane and or starting fluid leak discovery methods.

He found several intake leaks on his car, one is "T-shaped" in the middle top of engine under other intake stuff. Not sure if he is ordering parts or just trying to seal it up so he can get his readings and get the chip made for this racing season.

I also got him to use this thick foam rubber pad that looks like a snow board that I gave a few months ago. I cannot stand watching him work knees down on bare concrete like that, not at his age.
