My RSR Build

I've been on the Ferrarichat forum for 10 years in the 246 Dino section. I've done a number of Ferrari Dino restorations as that is my favorite car next to a Porsche RSR. I became inspired when I saw Dave's beautiful orange RSR tribute and decided then and there to start my own project. It's a tribute and NO way am I trying to build a clone. I just want a fun street car. I started posting on another site but it seems there is way more interest on this site for these type of builds. Over the next few days I'll update my work thats taken place over the last 2 months. I started by buying 2 73 911T's as I figured doing 2 at the same time would be more educational than one. It's kind of learn as I go which is what I did with the Ferrari Dinos, 10 years ago. Here are some pictures of the first one. It was originally gold.

I stripped it to nothing and then removed all the undercoating. That job was a PITA, but in a week after going through lots of braided wire wheels, and a few Harbor Freight throw away grinders and the torch they were clean enough to send them to get media blasted.

We all love a good RSR tribute but did ya HAVE to build one out of a nice looking long hood?

Fill us in on the rest of the details! Engine? Suspension & brake plans? Color?

Well I figured why not do it with the real thing rather than backdating a newer car. Color is open, I really like viper green, and gulf blue but may try something more unique. 939 brakes and trailing arms, 15 inch wheels and 350 horesepower.

Cool. Looks like you have the resources for it.

Do you mean 993? What motor are you planning?

Welding in sway bar reinforcements, shock tubes, torsion tube mounts, rear swaybar mounts and weld on the attachment point for the 930 trailing arms.

Hi Jon, remembered being inspired by your Dino work on Fchat (AHudson there also, with a BB512). What outstanding work you do, loving the immaculate workspace too.

The 911s are such fun, tight, agile, well built cars. Built with a purpose, on purpose. Looking forward to watching this (these!) build(s) progress.

Fair enough

No doubt you'll do them right (judging by the pics).

I've always driven Porsches because I can afford them (barely) and they're beautiful awesome cars, but I'm a Ferrari man at heart.

More body work today, filling holes, filling battery boxes, fuel door delete etc. My aluminum front hood came today and looks like really good quality. Put the fuel tank in to cut the hole in the trunk lid tomorrow.
