Once back from paint, ther is all the details of assembly. I am behind on my schedule, but that is ok, not going to rush at this point.

Ah, well I was thinking it was the mechanical work to get her fired as-is rather than adding a supercharger etc.

Press on

Started working on power steering lines. I am using modified stock lines. I utilized the banjo flanges to the steering box and cut the steel tubing just above the mount on the fender wall. I welded the AN-6 fitting on and used the hight pressure fittings and hose. I was able to make the pressure line and installed to power steering pump after installing a extended AN fitting. I am not happy with the way the return line runs to the plastic tank, so I am either going to make new tank or see if there are other options mounting to plastic tank.

Got a good deal on new seats out of a 993. I did the math and was less expensive to buy these seats instead of redoing my original seats. The seats are the same size as 928 and look like they will bolt right in.

Finished the coolant tank after a few more mods. Plumbed the heater hoses and made a new radiator line from motor to radiator. I used some aluminum billet clamps that add a nice touch and clamp very well.

Decided to ditch the 5 gallon windshield washer tank. I purchased a AC Delco pump and built a new aluminum tank.

Tackled the power steering resivor. I didn’t like the slip hose fitting and the angle so made aluminum with AN fitting on return line.

Hood Clearance -

Hey Blagave - Have you verified your hood clearance once the dust settles and everything is mounted in their final resting place? The alternator, power steering reservoir, etc sure do look like they may be a bit high and wide between the fenders.

Years ago I'd helped a good friend shoehorn a Ford V8 into a Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III. At the last minute we discovered that the hood wouldn't close so it ran with no air cleaner for a while. Ha - On the straight-a-way it was a beast but man that thing turned plumb spooky on a curve. Lots of go and not near enough whoa. God must watch over youthful enthusiasm cause looking back, we were sure lucky to have lived through such stupidity.

Great Project - Michael

Yes, everything clears with room to spare so far. If you look closely, the alt. Is below the strut support.
I have a super charger coming and it should clear, but worried about the intake duct.

Started the layout for rear seat delete. I am building a one piece aluminum frame and will have two hinged access lids. Everything will be covered with the same black carpet as the cargo area. I like what Tony (JP) did with the cargo storage boxes he used, but decided to make my own and pick up some extra space. I got everything cut out, but my brake is on 48”, so need to go to friends shop to bend on bigger brake.

I love this thread! You move so quickly, I'm too late to say this, but if your Power Steering reservoir doesn't work out, know that the early models had a steel reservoir. It looks pretty cool too - Very post-war Germanesque.

Thanks EarlySport and Mal81 for the kind words.
Already finished power steering resivor, so checked off the list for now.
I try to show lots of pictures because you never know if something will help the next guy or sometimes you guys point out something I have missed.

Good Hearted Woman -

Hey Blagave - Have you decided what to do with that lower storage area after deleting the rear seats ? Down the road as a finishing touch to your build - you'll have plenty of room to retro fit one of those Tarantula MonoBlock Amplifiers and at least four 15" combination speaker set ups. That way you'll be musically competitive when playing "Willie and Waylon's - Good Hearted Woman" while waiting at those Sureņo California intersections. If your New Pro Touring 928 doesn't make you a stand out amongst the crowds - cranking that album out at 150 db definitely will.....

Great Project - Michael

I will upgrade the stereo somewhat and use part of the seat delete for amps , base etc. Not going to install one of those systems that vibrate the cars next to you....something nice and simple.

Adjust The Volume -

Hey Blagave - I was just joking about installing one of those rediculous nose bleed stereo systems that can raddle the street lights. I also keep the stereo volume adjusted to best preserve my hearing for as long as possible. Plus my CW Era Music selections are typically only enjoyed now-a-days by a limited audience.

The storage area left by your rear seat removal would be a good place to carry all your spare cash around.

Michael
