GREAT looking motor. Almost makes you regret having to hide it away inside an engine bay.

Did you weld up the slip fits? (Those look like Williams headers)

yes we did, this set required it as it wasn't the best fit. Anyway, motor/tranny and starter are connected and looking good.

Great build, but IMHO your choice of tire and wheel sizes just look too big and out of proportion with the rest of the car. Your build though so nice to see it's being built to your vision of what you want.

I agree, and I'm a wheel/tire guy by trade. These wheels are maybe 1 or 2" in diameter larger then what came on the 82SC. I guess the car has a old school look to it, but by no means was this meant to be any kind of tribute build. I built the car based on my first 911 and that was based on being as lightweight as we could get it while keeping all the glass and still streetable. Most of the car is fiberglass parts. Trust me, If I could get new wheels in say a 15x 9/11 forged/modern tech. and save all the unsprung weight, I would. But then you have to find tires. I have a hard enough time finding 17" tires for these wheels which use 245/40/17 fronts and 285/40/17. Even those are only produced by a small handful of companies these days, forget about 14 15 and 16" sizes. I'm all about weight savings in the wheel dept, but I'm not going to pay a small fortune for 30 year old OEM Fuchs from "period" that have been widened to get the correct "look". No knock on anybody, but if I'm going to spend the money, I want lightweight modern built forged performance wheels and these happen to "fit the bill" for my car. I had them on a couple of cars and they never failed me including some good track time.

PS I believe that's a real bad camera angle, in person they look pretty decent. However the tire lettering gets allot of ups and downs no doubt! I did put the classic lenses back on the headlamps and Im considering no lettering on the next set of tires. I may try and tone it down a notch if that's possible. Thanks for the comment, love hearing the good, bad and indifferent.

Back where she belongs! Still need to make fuel lines from pressure reg to carbs, freshen up the axels and hook up and adjust shift linkage!

If you're open to feedback, I'll say the whole thing is insane, in a great way. I actually love teh wheels and tires. Typically don't go for larger diameters or white letters, but they look fantastic.

The one thing I'd say that's critical is the mirrors don't work for me. The car is boxy (a good thing) and needs either flags or race teardrops.
