Worked for me.

Unfortunately or fortunately which ever works this shop/garage has been and will always be a working shop. I restore cars for fun and I also fabricate / build and ship my parts world wide. The dirty work will most likely never be done

However I will be backing out the Porsche when its done every time I do something in there that is on it itself. I'm in hopes that in a year or so I have a bigger place.

My roll cage arrived. With this car being totaled before and the rear wadded up I opted for a cage. I plan to tie it backing into the rear rails in the engine bay also.

I'm pretty sure I don't need to say it, but be sure to reinforce the hell out of the chassis where you will be bolting (or welding) in that cage!

Jeremy,
Are you going to add additional bars to that cage like door bars? Or are you planning to extend the rear legs and leave the rest of it as-is?

As always, I do look forward to your updates. Super cool build.

I don't plan to install door bars. but I do plan to add an additional bar off the back one to extend into the motor compartment.


and Thank you.

Hey loosenuts - is this project officially dead after 16 pages of photos and exciting/tantalizing verbiage?
Should we write off this rare 76 912E as totally destroyed?

absolutely not dead lol

Just order a new left front fender and some other bits yesterday.

Porsches are expensive to build and take a lot longer when you're not rich AF lol.

Plus I got side tracked building my Harley.

These are the fronts. 18x7 rears are 18x10

Excited to see you back into this one.

Thanks

To many irons in the fire to work on everything at the same time. We close on our new house in two weeks, which made it had to spend the kind of money a Porsche build requires and I need to finish my Harley as Sturgis 80th is this summer

And now that "all my other projects" are complete, this is my only build. (until its not again) lol

I'm ready for specs on this brake upgrade.
I realize my car doesn't 'need' brakes, but iron calipers are just heavy.
Did the calipers bolt right up to the car?

They don't just bolt up. You either have to get an adapter that requires machining of the caliper ears or have the caliper holes machined to both up. I opted for the machining of the caliper holes that way I can just use 1984-1989 Carrera rotors.

this is what I did

So you're running [modified] 968 calipers front and rear with 84-88 Carrera rotors?
That seems pretty simple. Have you looked into the bias? And which MC are you using?

Thanks!

That's correct

From what I'm told my stock MC is just fine
