Hey Jamie,
Not sure how I missed the start of your thread. I'll definitely be watching closely as I will need to do many of the same repairs to my '73T. Perhaps I'll give you a call this weekend to see if you'll be around so I can stop by to take a look, or let me know if you need a hand.

Things are progressing well on the '77 (I hope to get the engine in this weekend), so soon I will start on the '73.

Thanks for the beer and burger all those years ago. I have two 1972 911's and thus some spares. Please let me know if I can help out with donating some parts.

Glad you're back on a project.

Thanks James. I did not realize you were back state-side. Funny. I almost bought "tangerina Jolie" from Sherman before Tyson grabbed it. Hindsight... Would have been a lot less work.

Last night I started building my tub dolly. The front section started with a damaged front steel cross-member. The rear slots that hold the adjusting bolts in place had been broken out. So, rather than weld them up, I welded some legs to it. The legs are 24" tall and sit on a 48" wide base. This gives me plenty of room to bolt on my casters.



For the rear I used some old spring plate covers. I had a set that had some rust and were not worth of cleaning up to put back on the car. Again, the 24" leg was welded. The leg seats on the round section and should be plenty strong for the empty tub while I strip and paint.



Here is some detail on how the leg seats on the spring plate cover. I measured a 15 deg offset on the spring plate cover so I built this into the leg.



Installation should be easy. By using the factory parts I secure the tub using some of the strongest sections. The extra height gives me plenty of room under the tub to work on floors.

I still have to triangulate the corners tonight. I did not have any strap steel to do that. I hit the store this morning to pick up some stock. Here is the final outcome.



Oh, the mobile wet-blaster called me this morning with an opening for tomorrow. Looks like I will be in bare metal by the end of the day. A bit accelerated but that's OK. I guess this means a late night stripping the final parts off the car.

Yes. John was instrumental in my new MIG welder last year. It works SO MUCH BETTER than my old setup. Its just a used Lincoln running 220V but I like it.

Hey Jamie,
What time does the blasting start tomorrow morning. I'd like to drop by to see the process, if you don't mind.

9am weather permitting. I just got a call and we may call it off it its raining or drizzling in the morning. The vendor does not like to work on metal parts when there is a chance that the tub will not dry properly or that the rust inhibitor will wash off.

dry, windy day is perfect for the process.

I think that is Minnie's nose off in the distance in January 2006.

well, maybe. She had rust. Not as bad as yours. But it wasn't cheap to fix the right way.

I've been back for a few years. I travel over there on a regular basis.

Let me know how I can help out. Send me a PM we can chat via phone.

James

Yes, I think it is. That was the old location.


Fix right and expensive definitely go together.
