Yeah me too. It does look better than antisipated. Using good paint helps. Thx.

Had a couple early shift rods and a short shift rod and quickly made a short shifter that's not short. It's also angled 10 degrees toward the wheel.

Thx my friend !
I refuse to let these old stuck calipers beat me. Only 2 pistons out so far.

HC T4 2 liter installed. MSD wires, Direct Fire twincoil ignition.
The half shafts are restored but need assembly, gear oil change and I'm making my 'stinger' exhaust
I need to restore the fan i know. Maybe this Winter.

Closing in on the end for this thread. (I'm as relieved as you)
New Bosch starter and half shafts in today.
All that's left is the exhaust.

Got close with the exhaust/heat exchangers but ran out of inert gas.
I had a feeling that would happen.
Tank #6 on this project.

I haven't found any issues (no oil leaks or other) Only driving it on the property so it'll need a proper alignment though..
The oil system holds 8 quarts as I calculated. Clutch feels great and easy to operate. This car will be a pleasure to drive.
The 901 shifts beautifully ! Better than my '86's 915 for sure.

It fired up after only a few cranks and on the second or third start idles like it's always been running. This car has been sitting so long it wants to go ! Maybe I should've named it Herbie.

Start up Video is on FB: Mariani Restoration.

Nice car. Post a video of it running as I'd like to see how it sounds with that exhaust.

Took the R to be weighed on a scale the state calibrates every month. 1780 with 8 gallons of fuel.

No I'm not pregnant, it's the shirt.. lol.



I've only pre aligned the suspension but it fricken handles awesome. Body feels rock solid. Not a single rattle.
Really like it a lot.

I took my daughter Chiara for her first ride in the 912R. She really had fun.

Weight is down to 1740 lbs.

I started the process of lowering the car.
Just the front but looking better.

More than a few very important suspension bolts worked very loose yesterday.

It runs great today after the long highway drive, it fired up so quickly. It was good for it.

No chips.









Gotta adjust these now !
