Dave, the paint and metal magician got the dent out and now the finish is flawless.



I had a couple of hours to took the opportunity to remove the detritus from the sway bar and cut off the bushes.






The brackets are each different so Iíll replace the both.

You two have matching beards. Lovely dog; how will the vet treat his slipped disc? Your 911 continues to look great and I look forward to more about your engine refresh. Kind regards, John in CT.

Hes had an MRI scan and spinal tap and its relatively minor, so he is on two weeks rest and medication. So far since yesterday he has brightened up quite a bit, so feeling confident that the vets got it right.

I was thinking of having the Porsche logo on the tail upright, but in a pinstripe, and in a subtle colour, like a dark grey.

The other plan of mine was to remove all the rust from the exhaust, and to cut it open and rearrange the baffles for better sound. Does anyone know how to do this or has a link to exhaust modification?

Exhaust tuning is quite a bit of science...Drilling holes to make it "louder" will probably not make it sound better...

In my opinion, there's no need to advertise this car is a Porsche. I wish my car was devoid of Porsche logos. In the first place, Porsche isn't paying you. In the second...the 911 is literally the most recognizable car in the world. That said, it can maybe add a color accent...

It will probably turn out that I will buy a Dansk or Turbo Thomas, but I thought Iíd have a go at choppping up my current exhaust as it is.

Today I started the engine tear down and as I only had a count one of hours I thought that getting the fuel system off would be an achievable goal.

Finally, got to start digging out the oily crap from the top of the engine. Obviously the cowl and everything else is coming off, but I didnít see any sense in dropping anything where I donít want it.

Got the fuel tank out today. It was a bit battered here and there and uncovered some rust. Dave is confident that he can repaint it with stone-chip paint that will cover all my amateurish grinding.

I did wonder if itís worth saving as a new Dansk one is only £250...?

Then can the issue of the frunk interior. The previous owner had used a waxoil like substance to coat the bottom and itís quite sticky and vile. My current plan is to dig that out with gunk/jizer/petrol and then paint over the rusty parts. Iím reconsidering stripping out the whole trunk to repaint as itís a lot of work, and disproportionate to what I want to achieve.





Once again,another part of my car has been a home for critters at some stage...

Not sure if you were thinking of upgrading your fuse panel with one of Jonny Hart's new versions but now's a good time whilst you have the fuel tank out. Itís much easier sitting in the well changing all of the lines over than bending over the wing and doing it upside down. Just a thought and the panel makes a big difference to electrical safety, performance and fault finding.

My amateur metalwork continued today when I cut open the exhaust and gutted it. I watched the ďHomebuilt by JeffĒ episode in which he makes it look easy, and was expecting a double layered hull, but it was single layered which makes me think it wasnít the original exhaust.
