GOOOD WORK !

but, weren't front wing and ducktail out of fiberglas the first place/period correct? (ducktail with aloy frame)

making these from steel just adds needless weight...

It's a street car and I prefer all metal construction. No other reason really.

Enjoy watching your exquisite workmanship and nice to see you bucking the fiberglass trend. That RSR bumper is a thing of beauty. Thanks for sharing!

Every time I hear fiberglass I think of the old Vettes with the spider cracks.

Most of the metal work is done on #1 and off the lift and onto a dolly. Metal work on #2 is proceeding and #3 is on the lift to start taking it apart. I got my gauges back from Joe's Speedometer who did a great job giving me what I wanted. All LED lighting, euro faces etc!

I'm a bit confused about the Clock. Are those sub dials real : and is it Heuer face on a VDO movement?

Now the the Lamborghini Miura is nearing completion I've had a chance to get back to the Porsches. Metal work nearly complete on #1, metal work in progress on #2 and stripping the parts from #3 nearly completed. 1 and 2 are 1973 911t's and # 3 is a 1972 911T. The 72 is the only year with and external oil filler. I bought 72 oil tanks for the 73's and they will have have an external oil filler with no flap and a cap similar to the caps i'm using on the center fill fuel tanks. Should make some good progress next week.

I believe they do not work, for show only.

Love the metal work on both the front and rear bumpers. Makes the a$$ look great and the way it should be. I take it that you will be selling the other two or are they commissioned?

I think the Singers were also just printed dials on the gauge face and not an actual operable chronometer. It does look good, though.

I want those bumpers, but would be afraid to know how much they cost.

With the Miura now gone we turned our attention back to the Porsches. More metal work and some fitting of parts. We have used no fiberglass and now have steel front bumper, aluminum front hood, metal rear bumpers and we crafted an aluminum ducktail. We are using all 930 rear suspension and still wanting to use the deep RSR wheels it was necessary to widen the flares 1 1/4 inch. I'm doing an exterior oil filler even though this is a 73 model, but it will have no flap and the cap with protrude from the body. The first one is going to be Gulf Blue with orange accents. The two other projects will be identical build just different colors. A limited run of 3!!!

Amazing work! Love the all the little details, and of course the aluminum duck tail is insane!
