Great work! I wouldn't mind seeing more detail of the external oil filler for the '73s if you have the opportunity...

Amazing all metal craftsmanship. That bumper is insane.

Sounds like you have a lot of background in other builds. Any photos you could post of finished projects?

Metal work for the aluminum front trunk lid center fill fuel tank and the tool we made to get the look we wanted.

#1 metal work is complete, all the modified oil lines are complete. Worked on all the gaps today and welded up holes that aren't needed. Tomorrow it goes back on the rotisserie For a light media blast and then the epoxy primer. #2 is right behind it. First one is Gulf Blue with orange graphics, #2 is going to be Gemini Blue with Silver graphics and #3 is going to be Gelb Green with black graphics. No Fiberglass, No Vinyl Grahics!

wow!

just clear coat it after blasting... could be one of a kind mean look!

but OK, if paint, then here's my choices:
a) bahamayellow
b) sandbeige (looks awesome with blacked fuchs!!)
c) dolphingrey

the plus for all three: thei're a good (light) contrast colour for black fuchs, decals, etc. !

Car #1 is at the paint shop getting white epoxy primer. #2 in the metal work process and #3 undercoat grinding. I picked the 3 colors which will be #328 Gulf Blue, #137Gelb Green and #330 Gemini Blue.

When I see the oil tank location for the 72 all exposed like that I think about the arguments that must have happened at Porsche in 72' when they decided to move it back behind the wheel. Its such a superior spot for the weight I bet there was some knock down drag out fights and not nice things said.

The engineer that had the idea back in '72 had to wait a few years for the satisfactory "you're right" when Porsche brought the tank forward once again on the 964-993 cars!

While you're at it, you should think about extending the oil tank down for more capacity.

You may be right. My engine builder suggested I add an additional cooler which I did. This will add some capacity to the system..

Fantastic example of what can be done with quality metal working craftsmanship. My hat is off to you for spending the time and money to do this.

As an opinion, I hope you don't paint those oil and fuel labels on, especially in that size. If you insist on the labels, maybe you might make your mask smaller and blast the text onto the actual caps. Or you could do a mirror polish text on the natural or matte cap finish.

Regarding the 1972 exterior oil fill, I always wondered how there could have been so much of an issue with people filling the tank with gas. The filler door had a release inside the car. One would think the owner would know to not put gas in there. Mind you, back in the early 70s, people probably didn't lock their doors all the time and if you were an idiot driver and drove up to the wrong side of the pump, the gas jockey would probably just assume that was the filler and open the door and pull the release. Regardless, I think it's a great idea to have the oil filler there and I know I'd not have an issue filling the wrong tank with gas...

The fuel and oil would be very small and is going to be laser etched into the cap.

The first of 3 cars is ready to go to the paint shop. All the metal work is complete with hand fabricated steel front bumpers and rears, handmade aluminum ducktail, aluminum hood with cutout for center fill fuel tank and exterior oil filler with custom cap. the first car is gulf blue with orange graphics and wheels. The second car is not far behind. Lots of cool stuff going on these 3 builds
