Thank you Paul. As I expected you would know. By the the braid wheels are incredible looking wheels and thanks again for your time.

And here is another reason why a guy like me shouldn't try to build his own car. I didn't even know what size wheels I had on my car.

As far as the status on the car it continues to show progress every day. Was told that the car would be completed for their part by end of January.

Interior shop needs a quick visit for the shift boot, emergency brake boot, and front carpeting to be installed.

Then back to body shop for glass, exterior mirror, front bumper install, rear ducktail switch from current deck lid, some rubber seals, license plate holder, and likely more. All I know is that this spring this car will be on road after a many year process.

9112gun - are these just the stock side pieces for the interior? I have the RS kit in my car too and really like the way these finish out the interior as my seatbelts are exposed now. I have the interior pieces from it so can have them recovered and use them if that's all they are. Any mods to make them work with the RS kit?

Thanks in advance!
Billy

Billy, you should ping JJ. He's got the RS carpet kit too, but I don't know if he has these side pieces.

Cheers,

Yes. These are the stock factory side panels which were then covered in leather. They look great.

Thanks 9112gun! I'll pull mine out of storage and get them recovered then....I really like how they finish the interior!

@Craig_D - c'mon....you know JJ doesn't have any good info to offer! Looking forward to seeing you soon. You coming to Luft 5?

Visited the car today and it is getting very close to being ready to leave this leg of its journey. Car has been almost completely reassembled by mechanics. Waiting on the delivery of the fuel and oil lines and then we will be starting this car up and getting the PMO's tuned. Still waiting on interior finishes to be done like front carpets, shifter and emergency brake boots, and realized my power seats don't have electrical harness which was very dificult to find as Porsche quit making it. Got a few new pics.

So the gas tank is in and all electrical is done. Still waiting on headlights. Ordered headlights from Retro Fit Flat Six, it has been 6 weeks since I ordered, was told I would have in 3-4 weeks. No word from them if they are back ordered so all I can do is wait.

Front oil cooler is on and waiting for oil lines

So my headlights finally came in and I love them. Well worth the $$ and I am sure they will provide vastly better lighting then stock 30 year old headlights.

The black rings are temporary. I have orange rings that will be put on shortly.

Went to the shop today to drop off the orange rings and took a close up of the new headlights. They have a cool Porsche crest etched in the glass. And no they don't obscure the light projection in any way. It held up the time of the construction but I love them.

The car is still at Arbor Motion in Ann Arbor. They are almost done with the car. Waiting to run fuel lines (which haven't arrived yet) and then get the carbs tuned. There is of course always a bit more to due but the end is in sight.

Then to body shop for some final pieces to be put on.

Have an hour of interior work that can be done at either site by Rod at classic 9 leather

I see. I'm taking my quattro seats and door cards to Rod. Maybe I'll see it there. Last time I was there I saw this:

Lights look FINE! I looked up Flat6 site, great to have a modern headlight alternative. Iím surprised they were able to use the Porsche crest. Car companies can get a little squirrelly about their logos.
