took a nice drive to historic and quaint Rabbit Hash, KY.

just finished a full suspension upgrade on the 951. still need to do a little tweaking of the alignment then off to DE this weekend.

pic is in front of the privies... does on right, bucks on left.

the ~200 yr old general store burned down not long ago. did not take a pic of it, torn down to the floor joists, they plan to rebuild it. pic from a drive a couple years ago of the old store. that is my 911's headlights you see faintly on the right of the pic.

Did micro polish the crank and got it balanced together with the new KEP pressure plate and OEM flywheel. There was very little adjustment needed when balancing the crank.

My 951 bottom end of the engine is almost done - need to finish teflon crank scraper install. The head is ready to be intalled. Did weight the new Wossner rods with screws - thay came out 255 grams per rod lighter than the old OEM cast ones.

Finally fixed the turn signals and hazards. Should have gutted the harness and gone full race would have saved many hours of trouble shooting. Took the car for its first drive just over a km. Seemed to work pretty well. Now I need to put the dash, carpets door panels and basically every other interior part in and it might be ready for its inspection! So long as the brakes and tires pass.

Fixed odometer and high beam switch

I've achieved two things in the last couple of days . Firstly, made my odometer work again. the gear had slipped on the shaft, so I moved it back and glued it in place. interestingly, I was under the impression that it should have either an 11 or 17 tooth gear... mine has ten

Also managed to dismantle, fix and reassmble the high-beam switch. Now i have headlights on both beams again. Very pleased...

I had done that with a seat out of my 911 when I had race seats for DE.

I retired the 911 and put the stock seats back in.

off to the shop to put the 951 up on my new quickjacks, pull all the wheels and start the general maintenance before the next DE.

I am proud to say that for the first time in the 6 months iv owned my 88 944 I got it too start and drove it for the first time! Finnaly saved up enough to replace both of the reference sensors. Fuel pressure regulator and dampener and rebuilt the injectors and replaced the vacuum lines. Felt good to finnaly experience driving one of these after reading how nice they handle. Wife was just happy to see it move.

got the 951 up on my new 3500 quickjack. going over the car for the next DE in June. need to replace the front pads.

NOTE: the 3500 QJ is too short for old Porsches. but with a little help from a 2X8, I can get the rubber blocks under the lift points.

Put on my dash pad today. Took a bit of trimming with a utility knife to fit well enough. I attached it with about 8 one inch squares of flat Velcro tape between the vents and in key places. I added strips of the fuzzy side of the Velcro to the cap as padding to stop it rattling. Looks good, even if it ends up as a temporary fix.

That looks pretty good. Who makes that dash pad?

I got it online from 1aauto. It looks good and is an exact match to the texture and finish but it's not a perfect fit. It looks great but it would have been hard to glue on since it is not snug in some areas. Way better than the cracks though. I just wanted it to look good and be easy to remove if I did not like it.

I forgot to mention that I pulled the vents and the cluster trim to install it. I put the two bottom cluster screws through the cap to hold it in those spots.
