Episode 43: 911 68 engine build completen

Here is the engine as finished by Nick Fulljames of Redtek. It is a work of art and sparkles in every detail. Give me a pair of triple choke Webers over mechanical fuel injection any day (at least from a romantic technical point of view)!

Episode 45: 911 68 door window assembly

The door and side window frames were sent away to Alan Drayson of Canford Classics for cleaning. The aluminium parts have then been polished and the steel parts, which were showing rust, have been rechromed. I've bought new window seals from Roger Bray. Despitre taking photos before they were taken apart, assembling these window frames has been a real jigsaw puzzle as they all came back to me in small pieces. This is a time consuming job that requires a lot of patience, but is very satisfying when it's done!

Episode 46: 911 '68 bodyshell ready for rebuild

Here is the bodyshell up on stands and ready for the rebuild. But there's a lot of work to do from here. I'm also working out how to fit a rear anti-roll bar.

Episode 47: 911 '68 brake pipe making

Fabricating brake pipes is a fairly straightforward deal as long as care is taken to cut the pipes square and make sure there are no burrs on the flared ends. I'm no professional at this, but with the right tools, the results can be good.

Episode 48: 911 '68 rear swaybar mount, frt bumper & roof mat

This clip looks at mounting the Porsche Classic brackets for the rear sway (antiroll) bar. I've changed my mind on the front compartment and it is now painted in body colour rather than stain black. I've fitted the front bumper (complete with 40kg weights!) and attach vibration mats to the roof underside.

This clip comes with a health and safety warning: don't weld on your car if there is any chance of it catching fire.

Episode 50: 911 '68 rear suspension and rear brakes

This clip covers the rear suspension and fitting the rear brakes. I take a look at the status of the rear mechanical cabling and what I need to fit the headliner.

Episode 51: 911 '68 wiring gauges

My gauges have come back from restoration and I've spent a long time wiring them up. This is a very time consuming job and requires a lot of patience. I've had to replace most of the instrument light receptacles and all the small bulbs.

The gauge sleeves (the black O-rings that seat the gauge in the instrument housing) came from Roger Bray (not available from Porsche Classic) and the other small parts from VW Heritage. In this clip I also show the rear electrical panel in the engine bay.

Episode 52: 911 '68 Light fitting

This clip covers the fitting of the headlights and tail light assemblies. Before any of the train spotters among you email me, I'm fitting H4 headlamp assemblies to this car. As delivered to me the US spec car came with the fairly hopeless sealed beam units.

The correct headlamps for a Euro spec 68 911 would probably be the H1 dual lamp headlamps. The H1s are very difficult to find in good condition, so I've opted for the H4. In this clip I mistakenly say the H4 was introduced in about 1970-71.

Now I've seen since that Brett Johnson (911 Restorers Guide to Authenticity) noted the H4 wasn't introduced until 1973. I'm fairly sure my '72 911S always had H4s (with the clear top to the lens glass, rather than the later pebble dash tops), so I'm not clear when the H4 appeared.

The main thing is that they look correct and they are better headlamps, which fits the philosophy of this restoration.
