We're trying to restore as much of the OE hardware as possible

Nice color of the plating! How do you re-plate the steering u-joints without damaging the rubber shaft seals?

Just replace the split lock washers or wave washers. Most of the originals have already lost the spring in their steps.

Be sure to take a look at the slotted pot metal lug that holds those window regulator springs onto the frame. The lugs are notorious for breaking off at the base where the lug post is staked into the frame

Edit: It looks like the regulator at the top of the picture has already lost its lug

Since your car is a 1982 model, the engine will have the small port heads. If you really want to make this bad boy wake up, either have the heads ported or buy a set of Carerra large port heads. If you are going over about 10:1 compression, you also might want to consider twin plug ignition. Xtreme Cylinder Heads in Florida can do any/all head work you want. By using something like Electromotive crankfire coils, you will eliminate the distributor and get infinitely adjustable timing. Being able to fine tune the timing advance by turning a few knobs really aids final tuning! Cams. If you want a nice, aggressive street engine, 964 cams make a good choice. Or, since you will have ITBs, you can go with something a bit more radical. Good luck!

Now wait a minute here. What color is that? a custom blend perhaps?

KTL 07-09-2018 12:15 PM

Powdercoating is like potato chips. Once you start, you just can’t stop until the chips/parts are all done?

Ryan H 07-24-2018 10:26 AM

Getting there!

Also, if any of you are looking for a really good painter, this is the guy.

Awesome project and color! Reminds me of the one Singer used for its initial Singer DLS renders.

Fix that window regulator spring yet? It'll make your window go up quicker!

Quick update. I sent the cylinders to Gary at Torque Power Engines to have them checked and honed. Good to go!


Were you cylinders Alusil or Nikasil? How much to hone may I ask. Please PM is you don't want to broadcast.

Thanks.

Wow, this is one of those threads that makes me realize I have no place being a Porsche guy. #notamillionare ;) Killer build!

I have to LOL because I agree. Actual cost to properly re-do one of these cars like this...it's probably close to new GT3 $

Side note: Great build....

Ryan H 08-06-2018 08:12 AM

Wet!

The interior will stay bare on this build to showoff the work.
