Seems like what you'd want to do is very lightly tack it in place, install everything (rear glass, top, seals etc.) then untack it so that the bar self adjusts to its natural position. Then weld it up.

Great project, btw! Can't wait to see it finished. A turbolook targa, with no tail, is one of the best configurations and rarely seen.

Couldn't agree more. Ducks look quite fitting as well.

I looked for a long time for a build thread like this when I was considering converting a 964 Cab to a Targa. Glad to see someone finally tackling it.

Those are helpful pics! Now break out that tape measure for me
Mc lovin, that's kinda the plan. Right now I have all of the seals etc on a truck somewhere. Should see them this week.
So far, with what I have to mock up it looks close to me.. The glass seal will be the final part of the mock up I need.
BUT! those pics with measurements are going to be really helpful Hint Hint

Last is from the right-side latch point on the targa bar to the rear edge of the corresponding hold in the windshield frame: 664mm from the front of the flange & 686mm from the targa bar.

From here (664mm):



To here:




And here (686mm):



To the same rear hole edge...

Hope that's all helpful.

Tom,

How about measurements from right side latch point to left side hold point and from left side latch point to right side hold?

Thanks,
Mike

It'd be interesting for Dpmulvan to take similar measurements on his tub for 2 data points.

Not sure how reliable these are as the rear hold points are not 100% fixed (the tube ends are a little bendable)...

Anyway, the 2 cross measurements (right rear to left front & left rear to right front) on my tub are: 1143mm & 1148mm

As measured from here at the front:



To the top/center of the rear tube:

Thanks. I will check mine to see what they are. I was hit years ago on the front right side and I suspect my chassis to be a little off side to side. I had my targa top restored and to remove one front down pin to be able to lock it down.

You guys are awesome! Great pics! Now.. What can we measure as a height off the tub to top of bar? That's the only missing shot Thanks again!!!


Bugbug needs an oil cooler, so I bought a nice unit from Jegs with the plan to plumb it all in 3/4" SS and some hoses ant each end ala the factory setup, only my cooler was going to mount in the dam..
I spent the day mounting the cooler and bending up some lines. My arms are shot!



Cooler is the right size, just had to cut off one mount and reweld it. Its a nice piece, has a separate drain and 1/2" npt port. In/out is 12 AN




Mounted up! This dam is going to change , but this is good enough for now.




Bend and bend some more.. 0.49 SS is a PITA to bend by hand but doable. The trick is to have a beer every now and then.



The little notch for the jack post was particularly annoying haha!



Before fittings were welded(actually not fully formed up here)



Kinda out of order, but I took this while installing.



That's it for today! Hoses monday

Thanks again for all the pics. Cant wait to weld that bar on.. Its comin!
