This week I have added the stripes to the rear grill. I started to get the pedal box sorted out and I finally got the dash finished.

In this weeks episode I have a go at a DIY sports exhaust mod, by converting my original 2 in 1 out muffler to a 2 in 2 out.

Well I have been away in the US for the past few weeks, and while I was there I dropped back in to Performance Developments so I could bring home some bits and also give you all an update on what is going on with the engine.

This week I have finally made an attempt to clean up the garage. I also make a DIY 'Ultrasonic'ish' parts cleaner, and I start tackling the oil lines.

This week I spent most of my time trying to remove the brakes. What a headache. The dust cover for the front wheel bearings is a real pig, but I found a great way to get them off.

This week I show you one of the worst ways to remove a stuck fitting in a brake caliper, and then I rebuild the brakes.

Glad you are enjoying them. Hopefully my silly videos can inspire you to get out and work on your car.

This week I do the engine cooling mod to the cylinder air guides, and I put the finishing touch on the front end of the car, by restoring and installing the bonnet badge.

So I have had to sit the Porsche to the side as I am still waiting on engine parts, but that means it is time for me to start the build on my 1971 Datsun 240Z.

This weeks video is about 50/50 Porsche and Datsun. I first needed to replace the front wheel bearings on the 911 so I could put wheels on it and move it out of the way. I then got into doing a stocktake on my Z to see what it needed, and start formulating a plan for the build.

I realise these will not be Porsche videos for a while, but you can follow the Datsun build on YouTube if you are interested. I can also possibly start another thread on here with the Datsun build if people are interested.


Here is the episode.
