Yes, I wanted to see what I've only visualized. My '68 is getting close.SWB 911 R build with 912 roots..

I've only owned 911s and never thought about owning a 912 but found this one 2 miles from my house. This is the first 912 and now after bonding with this one repairing it and researching them, I'm more excited about having a 912! The better balance / possible lighter overall weight does more for me than outright power.

Original engine was missing. I'm building a hot rod Type 4 for now so i'll need 912E engine tin to seal up the engine compartment and a 912E engine mount bar if anyone has them to sell. -Matt










This is the only yellow paper I had, the final accent color will be a light yellow.
I'm not a 'yellow guy' but after mixing the #622 Beige Gray and looking at it's simple formula: black, white and a lot of yellow]
I figured yellow must compliment it and i think it does.

I agree, I enjoy the 912 much better than the 911 I own....I like the handling and the fun of 912 driving versus the 911 power!.....will be putting my 911 up for sale soon!

Cool ^^ Thanks for that !

I hope its not in poor taste to post on 9/11 and didn't want to but here goes..
Yesterday was very productive. Last night i painted the suspension parts in black gloss PPG acrylic urethane [very much like factory finish]
I also Zinc Primer'd the inside cavities where i could in the suspension parts.
Zinc will migrate around in humid conditions and attach itself to unprotected steel. Porsche's experiments with zinc in the mid/late 1960s taught them this. Plating is done as well.
Fenders have another coat of epoxy primer and need wet sanding w 400 and we shall see if ready for paint.
I realized last night i'm very close to having wheels bolted up.
Wish i wasn't so darn busy or I'd be driving my Stinger 912R by now !


Note Zinc inside

I'm still wet sanding the fenders between epoxy coats but time for a shot of build primer on these to get color on them.

Note how thin the fender material between the door and fender would have been [less than 1/16"] and how building up a folded-over metal look edge like a steel fender, looks better.




Spray inner fenders first:

This is how i found my 1968 912 2.4 miles from my front door. It had the normal rocker and front pan rust but little in the floors and only around the pedal area. I found it had been hit in the rear passenger side many years ago and repaired badly.

Hey Craig, please post a picture of your '68.

Mine was pretty bad i just took way to many rust repair shots to upload here but i do think mine has pretty low miles [under 100k] but it's just a hunch.

Mine was very much not intact, much went missing over the years. The PO bought it in Florida and trailered it back to PA with his Brother about 5 years ago. Little is know other than the guy he bought it from was in the process of coverting it to flat 6 power to build a track car but never finished it. Had a lot of pop rivet-Bondo repairs.

But having the original floors is very nice.

Thank you.

I could have gone the full R light route with fiberglass bumpers and doors but decided i wanted some car around me and didn't want a full cage.

I had a [slow speed] Mini van rear end my 3.2 with IROC bumpers. It did some real damage that otherwise would not have been so i'm going with the steel bumpers on this one. They're not that heavy when compared to the G series impact bumper assemblies.

All is primered with PPG epoxy and 'getting there' as they say.
Stinger 912R Dreamin !!

I've saved this heavy gauge expanded aluminum for some time and think it works well as the intake grill. It's much lighter than the factory part and recalls the 911R lid intake.

It's held in place by interlock and simply wire wheeled and clear-coated.

Hey nice looking work! What is that hole in the side (quarter panel) behind the passenger side door? My '68 912 doesn't have that.

Ah thanks. Thought it was for oil, but didn't think the 912 needed one. Dry sump makes sense, no oil pan to catch a curb.

More body work; sanding, adding a little filler, sanding and primer again, chip guard, etc., to remaining panels and test fitted again.
They're on their 3rd round of PPG epoxy primer coats sanding between. Sick of body work but pressing on.

I want to get these panels painted over the weekend. Then there's just the fiberglass hood to deal with.

Final body paint is done with the fiberglass TRE hood.

I touched up the satin black paint underneath here and there,
should be a very nice 'driver'.



ran out of wide masking..
