Okay, the following pictures do not look so good, but they always look worse before they look better. Looking closer it appears that the car had been used as some sort of storage bench on and off over it's career as a automobile Embarassed












"Don't worry it can all be sorted out with some bondo fella."
Is what someone said to a previous owner.....

Hi Gaz,
Yep, extra louvres one when I did the side cills. These not only look soooooo 17's they should help with the cooling (morelater when we get onto the engine Bandit )

She`s looking good Chief, is your tin basher going to sort the Frunk and Engine lid out or are you doing them yourself Question

Are you doing Oulton Park in March Question I`ve dropped a clanger and missed getting a ticket, but am going to rock up even if I can`t get a spare or last minute dropout Grin

Hi Kris,
we are going to have to attempt to shrink the panels back. The back boot has what we call 'Oil Canned' which basically means that you push the panel down and it doesn't pop straight back out. This will need heating and cooling fast to get that spring back. Mark will do this as i'm onto the smaller sub assemblies.
There are lots of them to sort what with the heating/Cooling system, door, bonnet, boot and engine lid catches, head lights, dashboard etc, etc.....
Engine and box will need addressing very soon along with the cash to go with them Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised

I'm sure that someone on here will post up that they cannot go to Oulton Park this year. I think you will be fine Thumb
Not sure which car to take this time around. we did have a lot of fun in the Cayman Question

Whilst the car is away into paint, it has given me the opportunity to refurbish a lot of the smaller components.






And after some cleaning, machining and passive plating.



Door check straps done.
Then onto the heater controls.











Cleaned up and ready for plating.









Just the face plate to sort out now. Not sure which direction i'm going in with the dashboard, so am leaving it for now.





All dashboards came in odd colours. I believe it was just down to what was in the gun at the time.



Found some interesting grafity that Hans at the factory did.



The dashboard front has some thin soft metal that is covered in fabric from the factory. This has various holes cut out for switches and would depend on the specification or customer order. It is then stuck to the dash with double sided foam tape. As usual, I don't want to do this!



After some considerable time with a file, I got the gauges face plate to sit flush with the dashboard. This will all become apparent later, honestly!











Holes now removed that I will not be using. These would normally be covered over by that trimmed metal mentioned earlier.



Some cleaning up and tin bashing saw the glove box lid fitting properly.



Just need some filler where the various spot welds from the factory are. Then I can look to paint.

A few photos to show how the body is coming along.











And finally. The door lock mechs back from plating.



There we have it for now.
So long everyone!
bye

Hi Chief,

Do Porsche know you're putting the 914 back into production? Grin

The panel gaps look ace, as do the refurbed parts! worship

Cheers,
Paul
