That is one sick car!....What are your plans for the car-Do you plan on selling it or keeping it for inspiration? I would keep it -Your vision, your effort, your passion!

Saw your car at Cars and Coffee. Fantastic build, love the oil lines. Even a bunch of high school kids were taking pictures. Now that's amazing!

Thank you very much! I'd park it in the living room if possible! I plan to keep it. I'm doing a 69E now though.

It's so nice cruising in this car in perfect weather and bare feet. Trunk is loaded with stuff, 1/3 tank, weighed in at 1780.

Got me thinking if I went full on R with glassfiber doors and bumpers and got rid of the glass for polycarbonate. I think 1650 pounds with fuel is attainable.

The motor was built mild with 8:1 compression and stock cam.

I think 25 + more BHP can easily be had too.

Thanks Trevor,

195/70 R14s all round. Handles quite well with these at a reasonable price for a vintage look.

Out enjoying the noticable charge that the cool air gives these engines

Pulling from very low rpm in 3rd up hill:

Running better every use. I've been pushing it fast through turns, man these 912s are balanced!

Installed the original 420mm VDM.

Found your thread - beautiful!
I like how you are using the empty gauge slots for fresh air. Can you tell me the source of those vent covers/louvers?
How did you get your frunk so clean and tidy? rewire the whole thing? mine is a hot mess.

Hi again Queen,

I took all metal down to bare by wire wheel. My pelican 911 thread has all of the excruciating details.

Had it not had rust to repair and lead work, I would've clear coated the bright steel it was so pleasing.

Re my vents:

Only one other man knows about these working vents and their manufacture and that's Puma and he's a vault.

Your R should've had it's wiring harness replaced. I restored mine, my fuse area looked like a bowl spagetti.

I will check w puma about the vents...Thanks. * I will check w puma...

Unfortunately my r did not have its wiring redone....they just spray painted everything black with undercoat and left all the old wires, connections etc in place barely making contact. * My thread on pelican has the ugly ugly pictures. * I have been rewiring one wire at a time
