Lots of progress, almost ready to epoxy prime everything in white so I can drive and sort out the drivetrain. My dad helped weld tonight while I fabricated mounts, a custom reflector panel, etc

Both vents gone and primed, started and run through the gears. On the ground tonight for a work car show tomorrow. She's starting to look like a car again!

Lots to still do, but it felt great to get the car out and showing people the progress in two months!

Lots to do over the winter, but it's fun to see how far it has come, I've got long-hood parts to bring it back to the correct 1972 look too!

Nice work brasch bringing back this oldie but goodie.

I have a similar old 74 that I would like to fit a 930 motor into, but wonder about the Duck Tail and Intercooler fitment. Can you tell us what was done to clear this?

Also, the 72 has steel fuel lines through the tunnel. Can you tell us anything about what was done to install the two pumps that feed the turbo motor? I believe you said this was done in Germany years ago.

I'm putting the car back on the hoist tomorrow, I'll take Picts of the dual fuel pump setup then.

Here are some Picts if getting the ducktail to fit with an intercooler, minor tweaks of the fiberglass and removing the rubber on top of the intercooler. Final will be much more finished, but here is the rough version, not much needed to fit

Lots of hours redoing the electric relays to make the motor run correctly rewarded with a great starting car, a few more electric things to do but getting better!

All suspension out today, making progress.

Does anyone know what the difference between struts with ball joint pins and a bolt are? I have one of each on the front.

Nice project. I like the duck tail on a turbo. Can't wait to see it after the new paint.

Thanks! It's getting fun now that it starts on the first turn of the key.

Can you guys help me? I have two different front struts, both 3" spacing one has a bolt to attach to the ball joint, the other has a pin.

Can I put adjustable Konis in these?

Also I'm changing my front sway bar to a 21mm stock bar, what do I need to do to the shocked?

Here are the Picts of the struts:

I'm still working on all my suspension part rebuilds but my buddy just delivered to me a set of sweet baggo/corn hole boards. Will be great for garage days this summer!
