Welcome, and congratulations on your 79 SC! It looks like it's going to be a fun project, once you figure out which path to take. My next 911 project will have to be widebody because I just love the proportions so much more!

I'm sure you already know about our technical article database, but just in case you don't, you can check it out here: https://www.pelicanparts.com/911/911tech_articles.htm

Great base! My advice to you is to get it driving and legal, and sort out the worst bits from there instead of taking the whole thing apart as a first step...You may find driving it drastically changes your priorities about where to put time and money.

For what it's worth, going widebody is something like $20k with paint. Going with just the fiberglass bumpers and decklid will probably net you a small profit.

Good. I used to have a 3 series too, was lower than that too, and with a front air dam, but didn't scrape as much and ride isn't as harsh as my 911 now. My 911 has after market front bumper below though.
Please post pic after you are done.

Anyway: I'm not a huge fan of that red color either for what I have in mind, because it would obscure the rust. Lol... So, sanding lightly, I would attempt to take off just the right amount of the red, revealing mostly white, and possibly some primer underneath as may happen. Then I would mist the car with something moist and or tacky, and lightly dust the paint with iron filings, allowing it to sit until the desired rust look was achieved.

As soon as that happened, clear coat over top of it all to lock it in. Damn, that is a super dumb idea, I love it!!!

Thank you. i've spent time in there and in your parts catalog as well. i'm sure i have a long lasting relationship developing with both!

there is no way i'm committing 20k to paint and body unless i replace the entire thing with CF. (and i'm not) this hog will get running once i get the engine bay sorted and the rear shock towers reinforced...and the EFI finished.

Wait. This is a budget build with ER crossmember supports going in? You going to run coil overs? :-) not saying I don't love it, just wondering where the build is headed. BTW those patina'd out bugs are awesome.

Nice car to start with. The Euro fender lights are so cool to me. I wish my car had them.

I like both the ideas. I too dreamed of the 930 and finally got one a few years ago. But I also like the narrow body cars so I have a 74 that I will be starting on building in a year or so that will look similar to the white car.

I understand wanting the wide body hot rod that scratches the itch for the 930.
I don't know about you, but having a car that looks like a turbo powered beast that only puts down 200hp just doesn't work for me.
So committing to the wide body car is committing to spending a whole lot more money making the power that backs the look.
But that's jus me. I'm insecure like that...


And those seats are terrible. PM me and I'll dispose of them for you.

i'm not right now. but if i decide to later on, i don't want to have to yank the motor to reinforce the shock towers. i figure pre-paint is the time to weld bits to the body.

if you mean the fender turn signal repeaters, you can have them. i hate those little jerks and the holes they hang out of.
as for the widebody with 200hp, i understand where you're coming from 100%.
but i plan to drive this car a lot once it's roadworthy. and i figure more fender means more tire means more mechanical grip. and if i go full FG with the body, i'll keep the lbs down and that will help the handling as well. i know i'll just hammer this car if i keep it narrow. but i like to think if i fatten 'er up a bit, i'll leave it at a much less unreasonable ride height.

and good lookin out on the seats. they're just the worst.

^^^ I get it. To get your first Porsche and not build that wide body hot rod you have dreamed of will be impossible.
Just be careful with too much RWB style and too little Porsche Power. You will find yourself featured in this thread.

The boss Sheeper of them all

You've been warned

thank you, my friend. i only perused the first two and last pages of that thread and i'll do my very best to stay out of its context! lol.

i worked on that sad ba$tard in my garage today.
i found some top-echelon wiring, some more rust, got some rusty splinters, and filled my nose with two paper towels worth of black boogies.

Yes.
But the whole power window system was just bare wire ends twisted together and black taped. Including where it pulled power from the ignition switch. Janky doesnít even begin to describe.

DST is in effect and Iím behind schedule.
Time to get to work!

i need some advice.
my plan for today is the remove the entire sunroof cassette. i've removed them from e30 and e36 before, but never a 911.

the question is this. do i need to open the sunroof and grind down the edge first? or can i remove the whole assembly and then prep the edge of the opening? i have a FennLane sunroof delete on the way.

Thanks in advance.

The whole mounting assembly comes out when the rear mounting tabs with the spot welds are detached.
Just cut the mount tabs just above the spot weld or get anal and release about 4 spot welds on each mount tab.
