Talking to fellow Pelican A914guy. Great dude. Super knowledgeable. Getting close to pulling the trigger on a 19mm spindle raise, full gusset reinforcents on the spindles and a Boxster brake upgrade in all 4 corners. Pretty sure I am yanking the brake booster to get that extra clean trunk look, so the extra pistons and bigger front rotors will be comforting.

When you run short on parts, I'm sure your buddy wouldn't mind if you scavenge the Singer.

You think he'd miss the carbon fiber doors and awesome Recaros?

I have a set of 'ratty 81 sport seats. Thinking of redoing them in saddle brown with plaid or houndstooth inserts.

So sort of an exciting day. The car has been on a rotisserie for the last 4 months. All the welding in the front is done. The rear end needs to be modified to allow for the quarter bumper brackets to be installed. The car is getting a metal plate holder in between the glass quarters. Can't do that work on the rotisserie.

So we grabbed a pair of mobile home jacks of off Craigslist, shortened them up and made some channels from some square stock to fit the seems. We then pulled the back half of the rotisserie off and now we can work on the rear without interference.








Here is the car sitting on the jacks in the rear with the right quarter, right fender and bumper clamped on the car. Starting to seem like a car again.



Tomorrow we'll trim around the signal boxes and fit the fender more completely. We'll also start fabbing the supports for the licenses plate panel.

All the toys put away for the night. I think 20-something Cindy Crawford (in the upper right) approves.

We sliced and diced the rear-end today. Had to slice several pieces off the quarter bumper to make it them fit up. I think we know our approach now.
Metal plate holder + metal quarter bumpers shortened to hold the turbo-wide glass bumper end.

The final piece will be a chrome bumper covers with chrome AMCO bars in between.

Funny I was looking through threads to get further ideas on how I am going to piece together my interior. I was reading your thread thinking, damn this a) looks good and b) is familiar, than I saw the picture of your car on the rotisserie looking epic. Great to meet you the other day, excited to see what comes next!!! Next time your in ATL let me know we can grab a drink.

CheeRS,

Will

Not a ton of progress today. I had to work. We decided we did not want to cut into the rear braces that hold the bumper shocks in order for the factory brackets to work. So we cut the horizontal brackets off and fabbed up new brackets that will fit inside the bumper shock holders. It is welded to the inside of the quarter bumper and will be screwed in so we can adjust everything for the final positioning on the car.
