Well, as I was told: "...as the thread title says: "Save the Porsche!"

It takes special devotion to pursue a project like this and see it through.

I think a lot of people will benefit from this thread and encourage others to not give up when they see something like this.

Yes! Sometimes It's hard to keep on going (Watching Youtube videos of 914's on the road helps a lot!). Thanks for the nice words!

I think I'll have the drivers side long repaired in a month or so. Then I will take the car off the cradle and build some kind of rotisserie so I can finish working on the bottom.

Thanks again and......Save the Porsche!

Claus, if you need sheet metal look at Austin Veedub talk to Paul in the used parts. They have 4 or 5 cars on blocks some of them have usable sheet metal. If I remember there is a metal lower side panel for a passenger side. They're located on Old Bastrop highway just past the airport. They also have a back upholstery and seat bottom above the office but its recoverable but overpriced I think. Tell them David sent you
