I will pm you.

Mine should not be too hard to reach.

I need to pull the front splitter to fix/reinforce a mounting hole(I hit a steep driveway a little too fast and it ripped out the splitter mounting bolt back by the drivers side tire).

I need to pull the power steering pump for a rebuild.

I need to drop the A/C compressor because I pinched the wire that activates the A/C clutch between the compressor and the mount so now my A/C won't engage.

Since I'm going to have it partially disassembled, I may swap in the aluminum radiator I picked up and swap in all the new hoses I got as well.

The downside is if I take the time to do all that to my car, I am stealing time I need to be putting into helping my son rebuild the 914 he wants to drive to school this fall.

Too many cars and not enough time.

Replace the AC/Heater control unit on the 968, nice to have AC again.

I sprayed these, which appear to have never been removed in 49 years, getting ready to pull the pedal assembly and rebuild it.

I got the hood open.

I did not like the fuel line routing I did a few weeks back so I installed a different fuel line on the input side.

The previous install had a short fuel line with a 90 degree bend on each end between the damper and the fuel rail.

I replaced that with a single 45 degree angle connector so I can angle the fuel damper down out of the way of the hood and connected the other side of the damper to a line with a 180 degree swivel connector.

Nothing too exciting. I put the sunroof vinyl back on, and spent more time trying to strip these infernal Fuchs

Confirmed the AC still works great. Drove to P2O. 944ís were well represented!

Replaced the original flat passenger side mirror with a convex one to eliminate the blind spot. The convex mirror makes a huge difference - $20 for the mirror and $40 for the auto glass shop to put it in.

Could be the best $60 I've spent in a long time.

Worked on finishing my 7 & 8 15" fuchs. Gonna paint the inset black. Gotta be better than my 7" cookie cutters with one of them bent. My a.c. was blowing fuse 6 as soon as you turned on the switch. Had new compressor. Found 1 thread where a guy said a wire under the dash got hot and melted. After hours of searching, I found it. Now we have working a.c. again after 2 years.... moved the connectors to the open slot.

I did the same a few weeks ago, and oh boy what a difference!

Today I built ramps because I don't have a paved place to leave the car on stands for the impending motor mount/timing belt/reseal job. Also tried to fix my broken speed sensor connector but ended up making it worse.

My Fuchs are on the way back from Rick Hartbrodt as of today as well. I'm painting them white, so they're coming to me anodized but not painted (he doesn't do custom colors anymore).

Two things: 1) changed electrical seat switch and 2) ordered Cibie Z beam replica headlight units and Sylvania Ultra H4 bulbs. Loved the z beam pattern on a 924 that I used to own. Back then I think I installed off-road 60/100 watt bulbs. Toying with the idea now, but I'm concerned about overheating the wiring when the high beams are on.

Car's still in storage during garage construction... Although, my indie shop (where the car is stored) did drive her last Sat for @20 miles to keep her juices flowing!

What's real unfortunate is that I'm going in for knee surgery in 1.5 weeks so I'll be out of commission for at least a few weeks (or longer?).

Thanks Paul but you are biased.

According to the judges score sheets, my car is hideous. It actually had dirt in the gas filled compartment and grease on the door hinges. I should just take it to the crusher.







To be honest all of the judges told me how much they loved my car but in a concours EVERYTHING counts, every spec of dust, blade of grass, etc.
My header panel does not line up EXACTLY the same on the right and left so I got points off for that. I had non-Porsche items in my glove box, I got points off for that.
I did get beat up pretty bad on the scores for a lot of things but that is the nature of a concours.
Aside from the details required by the concours rules, all of the judges were extremely nice, complementary, and helpful especially since this was my very first concours.

Just got my nasty looking fuel rail powder coated and replaced the front seals on my leaky camshaft.
