I have learnt over the years not to be methodical with rebuilding stuff. I have a habit of not throwing away any components until a car is fully assembled. This is the current collection of replaced parts.... (excluding seals etc)



So, back to progress. Door membrane stuck in place (but still needs some trimming)



As ever, new seals fitted etc.

Speaker slotted into place (they needed a bit of trimming to go into the mounting rings)



And (hopefully) finished door trim.



Must get around to doing the other side.

Managed an hour at the potting shed tonight. Forgot to take my camera, so no photos. Progress was limited to feeding the wires though the rubbers to the heated rear screen. I have ended up with a functioning heated rear screen (testing with a thermometer and a volt tester) but very sore fingers and plenty of scratches to my forearms.

If anyone wants tips on how to do this, my suggestion would be to pay someone to fit them for you nooo

Quick update for something that took plenty of time.......

New rear speakers



And after a few hours of cleaning, grunting, wiggling and cleaning, I now have a completed interior Smile

Alas my dabbling is limited to weekends - I do have a day job to do Hand

Hoping for significant progress this weekend, and will be having a week off soon to get this completed.

Painted today! I haven't seen them yet, so very excited! Collecting parts to fit front up from OPC tomorrow, and ordering the remainder of the parts while I am there.

On the home straight now.....

Loving this. When you're done you don't fancy swapping it for a 996 turbo do you.....? Grin

Thanks for the offer of a swap.

The number of hours, the blood, sweat and tears poured in, and the shear joy this car brings - the answer is no Surprised

Quick update tonight.

I got to the potting shed tonight to be greeted by the sight of some nice shiny bits.

Shiny front bumper



and a few other bits



I was dying to get on with assembly, but Mark advised me to leave them alone for another day to make sure the paint is fully dry.

Meanwhile, Mark was busy doing the final flat and polish



Hopefully plenty of progress will be made tomorrow

So, with the bumpers sprayed, I has run out of excuses not to get on and fit them. I remember them being a pig to remove, so really wasn't looking forward to today.

Collected a few goodies from OPC, including new grill and rubber "smile".



The grill went in easily enough. The rubber smile was more of a pain. Even though it is a genuine part, the fit isn't that brilliant. In the end, I elected to use a little contact adhesive. Even so, it takes plenty of clamps to get it into position.



Whilst waiting for the glue to dry, I thought it wise to take the opportunity to get some waxoyl on. It looks a bit yellowy in the photo - it does eventually become clear.



After a couple of cups of tea, a few biscuits and chatting, I couldn't put it off any longer, so I went for a trial fit.



It went on first time of trying!!! I reused the metal brackets under the front wings (but had them powder coated), everything else was new fixings.

New clips for the under tray



And after lots of crawling around on the floor, I now have this Very Happy

Just a quick visit to the workshop today. Mainly doing dull but productive stuff - I didn't think you would want photos of me cleaning carpet mats.... Question

One of the more fiddly jobs is getting the washer jets back in. There is plenty of pipe on the offside, the nearside is very tight. To get the amount of pipe you can see here, I tool off the washer bottle reservoir.



The hole they pass through is pretty tight, so I elected to used the correct clamps rather than risk a small jubilee clip



And the clamp in place



Popping them back in is fairly easy once the heater wire is fed through. As ever, I smeared the hole with waxoyl for protection and some lubrication.

Well, after two evenings with the parts catalogue, I think I have managed to order all of the parts I need to complete the car (fingers crossed). It has made quite a pile......



Yesterday was a fairly gentle day. Lots of cleaning, prepping parts for refitting. As ever I am taking a methodical approach. For example, I am replacing every bulb before before the lights go back in. Only progress photo taken yesterday was fitting the fuel tank shut off valve



I am off work this week, hopefully there will be some good progress, fingers crossed........

Haynes manuals say something along the lines that reassembly is the reverse of disassembly. Well, there is no haynes manual for a 964, so the odd error is allowed?

In a desire to make progress, I fitted the rear bumper bar. Only then did I realise that the heat protector and the guide for the rear bumper have to be fitted first frustrated

Hey ho. Well, at least the advantage of using new fixings and copper grease means taking stuff apart is pretty simple.....

So, photo of the rear bumper bar, top piece fitted (air riveter makes life very easy Smile ) and threads cleaned up really for the heat protector to be bolted in



And a photo of the bumper bar and heat protector in place. Has anyone done this themselves? The plastic part of the bumper slides in to the top of the bumper bar. Do I have to assemble this off the car then lift the whole unit as one?
