OMG - that gauge face is awesome!

I've been toying with a similar idea - you're a bad (great) influence!

Love the project, looking great and glad you're not going for a backdate..

I'm also going to go to Nick for a rebuild though it will be more straightforward than yours. Just a top end and RS cam hopefully.

Frank, I thought you would have been onto that one quicker ha! I can recomend porschedials.com . It would be the perfect match to your Monte-Carlo (I'm leaning towards one myself to match the black) I could say the same about you mate, you must have generated millions $ in upgrades for other people's projects. I can see the Queen's Award To Industry coming your direction Grin

PS Loving your video taster

Thanks Jack. I've been keeping an eye on your project too, it will be fantastic when you have the engine done along with your weight-loss programme! I might get to see it in the flesh when I go down to Redtek, whenever that may be Question

I think we should get together and put pressure on Nick to have little metal plates made to fit on the fan shroud lead covers "Hand-Built by Nick Fulljames" like they do on the Singers Thumb

Cheers,
Paul

Lol! Well I've got an idea I'm playing around with to stick with my red & black theme. I'll get in touch with them - they've done a stellar job on yours.

Bad Paul. Bad Frank. Bad Jack. This is like the Cold War Arms race...except we're all on the same side. All of projects are massively inspirational and I could literally build my dream car from bits of all of yours.

It's going to be a great summer,(ever the optimist) and the I really am very excited to see all of your cars in the metal.

I am absolutely loving the gauges, please forgive but I may just have to indulge in some plagiarism.

Haven't been on this forum for a while and I'm just catching up again. So much good stuff.

Hi Mike,

That's very gracious of you considering Peppa has drooled over more times than Charlize Theron Thumb

I really enjoyed your thread on the other channel and I couldn't improve on Frank's so I thought I'd try and contribute something here.

Well, I would if I had anything to contribute at the moment. I'll possibly have more news by the end of this week, I hope.

However I can cast a little crust of bread on the water, the new SRP Racing pedals have arrived:







There are no spikes on the noisy pedal to aid heel-toes.

Cheers for now,
Paul

Thanks Frank,

You won't be disappointed with your dial, Ed makes them for Porsche (Classic).

No news from Redtek yet but Nick has a habit of surprising me so maybe something soon.

Oops! almost forgot to mention, I decided you right Frank, I bought a Monte Carlo from Fuji's. My son Edward can have the Heuer Decimal in his '72 Karmann Ghia.

Bad Frank ha!



Cheers,
Paul Grin

Hi Brian, yes Frank was right, about the matt black of the Monte-Carlo and the period detail suits the 964 better. The Decimal looks great but since I've had the Momo Prototipo fitted and now the door handles inside & out and the racing pedals all in rally style it's no contest really. The times are a changin' Grin

Also, I've been watching the Fujiyama's sales over the last few months and there doesn't seem to be as many of the old stock Monte-Carlos coming up for sale, so I figured better do it now before I miss the opportunity at the right price. Like most vintage stuff if you stick around long enough it will always give you a return on your investment.

I haven't spoken to Nick this week as I've been too busy but I hope to have some news soon. He was sending the clock to a specialist he knows to have the new face fitted. I will post pics as soon as I have them.

Cheers,
Paul bye

Hi,

An update: The PMO's have been shipped from the US at last, the delay caused by one of Clewitt's suppliers ceasing to trade. The Mahle pistons and barrels are being shipped this week so I'm hoping things will speed up soon.

The "bottom end" is now all boxed up but here's some photos before-hand.

Crank case all boat-tailed.



Balanced crank with new matched lightweight steel connecting rods.







Pauter rods.



RS Lightweight Flywheel.



The new carbon strut brace is also en-route, happy days Thumb

More photos soon.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi,

Some more pictures of crankcase boxed up:





And finally an earlier one which I can only assume was taken by none other than Shakin' Stevens himself but showing crankshaft, oil pump and drive reinstalled Wink

Hi,

The PMO's have landed Thumb

It certainly looks like it's been worth the wait. Unfortunately we haven't taken delivery of the pistons and barrels yet so there won't be much progress until they do arrive.



However when the Mahle bits arrive, we have the heavy duty ARP studs so the top end can be built up quite quickly.

They look so pretty in their box I wouldn't be surprised if it came with ribbons & bows on it Grin





Rockers all shot peened and ready to roll, erm rock nooo



More soon,
Paul

bye

Hi All,

Things are starting to move again, the pistons and barrels have arrived and more engine work has been done so I'll update the post soon.

In the mean time you may remember I had decided to have the exterior door handles drilled "rally style" like many other hot rods.



The idea was to repeat the theme of the Momo Prototipo steering wheel and the new interior handles and racing pedals. Sizes and the spacing was tricky to get the look I wanted but the Martini car (pictured here from another post) was a huge help. Nick agreed with my choices and he's so pleased with the finished handles he's making a set for his own car and perhaps a few more, also Sam deserves a special mention, he made the jig. The fixing posts of the handles are slightly offset so care when making the jig to get the correct centre line is required.



I also wanted the holes countersunk which IMO adds to the quality looking finish but is tricky on a elliptical arch and a jig needed to be made to offer the handle surface square for each individual hole avoid them resembling fried eggs. Here's how it was done, firstly with a spare handle, just in case Wink













The drilled handles are now off to be powder coated, on earlier 911's they were anodised which needs a good quality grade aluminium. Porsche soon worked out that it was easier to use a cheaper grade and powder coat them Hand

More soon.

Cheers,
Paul
