Now that I have the engine disassembled, now I'm going after the transmission, or Getriebe.







Got some part back.



Started to put the engine back together







More to come

However, I also had some other project in between

Here is a run from Feb. and a run from this week.



Still s few things to work out, however, for the AX it should be OK.

That's more like it!  220whp is around where you thought it should be, right?  Now you get to learn to drive the car for a 3rd time, I bet that extra 45hp and lots more torque throughout the whole rev range will make quite a difference.

Nice improvement!
Just curious, any idea what the dip at 5200 might be coming from?

Yes..... That's the thing I need to sort out, no more details at this time.

Most important is the difference in the torque, starting at 2500 with about 180 ft/lbs compared to 125 before.

However, the engine is mechanically OK, so it will be there on Sunday for the AX for the first shakedown after rebuild. Cross your fingers, and whatever you cann.

Looks like a lot of $$$$ went into that car.

I like the front end, something I like to do with the SC. Looks basically like a 964 front bumper in this case a 965 plus the added spoiler, which looks nice.



Maybe not Turbo wide.

I have also been following some of Japans finest.  RWB or RAUH-Welt Nakai-San has been transforming some Porsches all over the world.  They are mostly newer models but you might like:

Enough playing, let's get back to the garage.

It's about time for an update.

I found a product called Deck Restore, and since it's made for the deck outside, I thought, it should work for my stairs inside that garage.

It is like a paste, and messy, but after it dried up, it's nice, and not slippery, perfect for stairs.

OK, one more little project. Replacing the vinyl on an old bar stool for my PC in the Garage.

Here it is.



Removing the legs


Next, removing the bottom carpet piece




A piece of vinyl I still had laying around


Staples 10mm


Fixing on the first 2 places


Then 4, pulling it nice and even


Starting between the 4 sections, making sure the wrinkels are about the same


All the way around


Cutting of the extra material


Checking and make sure it looks OK


Put back on the carpet bottom and the legs


There it is.

 I swear Englebert has a bag of fairy dust he sprinkles on his projects. I think he spilled some in his car at the last event.

No kidding!!   Grin


Hey Engelbert, how heavy is that paste you put on the steps?
Would it work well for making the un-carpeted floor of a car less slippery?

I was thinking also about that, since the carpet in the green car is really thin, you can actually see the sheet metal. I was looking into the bed liner stuff. Lowes or HD has it made by Rusty O Leum.

Converted an old Oak desk to a work table with storage.

I had this old desk back from Germany, and since we had no use for it in the house, and it was to good to get rid of, I will use it in my garage.

Screwed the side pieces together




Drawers Old German style build, can't beat that.


Added wheels




The top is actually covered with Hardwood flooring, I did way back in Germany, about 25 years ago.
Now I cut the desk top to size.


Here it is installed


It has also 2 pull-out shelfs


Finished with a nice coat of polyurethane, so it's easy to clean.

It's getting cold outside, and I had to scrap the winshield of the 44 (my daily driver) I had this.

So I had to squeeze it in to the garage, next to the puppy and the bug.
