Cleaned up the torsion tubes to prepare for R.R.P. bushings.

Was going to replace the voltage regulator today, but the garage was too damn cold. Bought and installed a nice garage heater today instead. (King KBP2406, 5700 watts, Made in USA.) Glad I had the builder add an extra 30 amp 240 volt circuit when I had the place built.

Voltage regulator tomorrow, unless I get distracted again.

Today was going to be a great day...First, I finally purchased my new tool box and transferred all my tools to it. I cannot tell you how much time I have wasted working on my car and having either to go back into my basement to get something out of my other tool box OR not being able to find something because all my tools were piled up and laying around my garage.

Enter the beast. I would have loved a bigger one, but my garage is fairly small.


I am rather chuffed about my purchase...on the bad side, I tried to start my 911 today to put the tool box in the garage and it wouldn't start. It turned over fine and would fire once each time I would turn the key but it wouldn't hold. So what did I do with my 911? Pushed it out of my garage...I guess I own a Pusche now.

Ah, fixed it, now I can say what did I do with my PORsche today? I fixed my popoff valve and drove it 15 feet back into the garage!

Nice tool box NeedSpace! Glad you got your car sorted too!

Well, today was a good day for me also. I picked up my control arms, camber plates, and other front suspension bits from the powder coater! Also de-gunked and painted my strut towers in preparation for the new parts. Also cleaned, greased and reassembled my steering rack. The full pictures are in this tread here.

But, here's a few shots of my powder coated parts!

Rebuilt my entire intake system and now there are no air leaks!!
The hardest part was putting the crank case vent on, but it's all on and working.
I'm happy with how the intake runners turned out, too bad you can only see one or two

'86 Cab: I finished my A/C delete by taking out the condenser in the smuggler's box and the blower in the trunk (by the battery). Also installed my new 21 mm spacers for the rear wheels and finished the yearly inspection, so I'm ready to get it off the jack-stands and drive it again.

Many tasks related to replacing the clutch, more cleaning than fixing. Also researching (here) how to prevent turning a great car into a roller! Slipping down that slope too....no body ever mentioned the pitch of THAT SLOPE and the grease at the top though

Hahaha! Yeah, the "while you're in there" syndrome had me taking off so many parts that I could almost picture the shell on stands for a couple of years.

'66 tunnel ends

I cleaned up both ends of the tunnel on my '66. Still a bit more work do to in the rear. I wish I could hit it with my soda blaster, but its too cold to do it outside.

The front was so full of crap that I couldn't even tell that it was a depression - I literally had to chisel stuff out, and then scrape it with a screwdriver, and a wire brush on a dremel. Fun and messy.

Also uncovered the rear part of the harness. Its in surprisingly good shape, considering its almost as old as me, and I'm not.

Removed, cleaned, and rebuilt my driver side rear trailing arm. Replaced the wheel bearing, replaced the pivot with an Elephant monoball, and rebuilt the parking brake.

No distractions today! Backed the car into the garage, closed the door and fired up the new heater while I grabbed a cup of coffee. 10 minutes later the garage temp has come from 48°F to almost 60°. Yay!

I then proceeded to replace the VR, which turned out fine. ([84 Carrera] Recommend good voltage regulator?) I think I'll drive to the coast tomorrow to celebrate!

Watched the 49er game, went to the gym, then a dusk drive in the cabriolet for an hour. A few 5500 rpm blasts and I feel fine!

Popped my rear reflector off with the hopes of making it look less blotchy.

Replaced front speakers with Pioneer TS-G1344R 5.25 inch, a drop-in replacement. About $40 a pair, and they sound fine to non-audiophile ears. I found out why the originals sounded so bad ... their main driver cones were completely missing!

Put together my new engine stand from HF. With Jim's Help (Draco) I moved the engine from the ATV jack onto the engine stand.
Started removing some of the rusted bolts with an angle grinder and Dremel tool; spilled some oil when rotating the engine, then cleaned up the mess.
Also reinstalled the rear TB and trailing arms and torqued some of the bolts.
It was nice to work on the car after a week of work related travel, and just before another week of work related travel.
