That rear inner wheel arch rust only becomes evident either if the oil tank or carpets and insulation are removed so it's not often seen. Its the mounting point for the oil tank support bobbin.

Look forward to following the transformation thumbsup - any more ideas on colour choice?

More updates from Brian today. Car fully stripped and heading to the bodyshop to rectify the rust accumulated around the sill and rear arches.

More updates when the welding commences...


Is it normal for cabin to be painted the exterior colour? My naivety suggests the factory may have 'saved paint' for areas destined to be covered by carpet/trim.

A very important point K. Insist that both the front wings are removed and treated down the seams. Don't let the car go for paint etc in the state shown in the pictures.

Not sure if it will help you but I have a pair of excellent c2 front hubs if you don't already have them fir your C2 project. They have just come off my car after brake upgrade? Pm me with contact details if of interest by I know these may be difficult to source these days?

Happy New Year all!

Apologies, been mad busy with family, work, usual non Porsche related stuff.
Progress has been slow, will post up some of the parts i've been sourcing later this week.

Roger Harradine built some of his custom carbon rear arch liners for me that were delivered last week. Unit 11 now have the engine and have taken it apart...

Engine Updates
- Crack in the crankshaft
- Barrels are all oval and not in a good shape
- Couple of the con rods are damaged beyond repair
- Burning oil at a mad rate

frustrated


Just touched base with Johnny@Unit Eleven who is working on the engine. His quote of 'Its probably the worst condition 964 engine he has come across', is ringing a bell in my ear....

i guess after 17* owners in 26 years i can't be surprised! Still i feel confident its in good hands. Hoping the good Docter can pull this through....

Thanks for the tip, wings will be removed!
Door straps are gone as well so these need to be welded back while the wings are off.

RE Colour - i've gone for Maritime Blue (nod to Jaap) Grin

I was looking at the engine today when you called John. Its certainly a sorry state, remarkable it was running to be honest. There are lots of options of course but costs mount quickly when so much internal and external needs replacing. As you say, its in very good hands.

Good luck with the rebuild. At least you'll know it will be perfect in the end Thumb

Unlucky with the engine, are you able to source a good used crank as new ones are a huge price! £3400
Great project you've got there, look forward to seeing it evolving as I'm planning on doing similar myself, keep the pics coming.
And you've chosen the best colour IMO
Maritime blue really suits the 964

Bit (or rather biting) the bullet...

- 993 RS Barrels & Pistons
- 3.6 to 3.8
- New Conrods, crank and camshafts
- Lots of new tinware
- Larger fuel injectors
- Rennline cam covers and carbon bling parts
- more to follow...

Brian @Jasmine, make this better than the red one!!! thumbsup

Nice one, it'll be better than new then, and at least you'll have the peace of mind that it'll be good for a long time to come.
Are you getting a set of slightly hotter cams to compliment the extra displacement?
