I'm depressed, that garage is nicer than my house. I think this thread should be closed.

Yeah, I was shocked when I saw the picture of my cheap A$$ oil container drain system on the front page.

But it works.

Time for an update.

Here is whats cooking:

My Pizza AKA Powder coating furnace.

I had that stove now sitting for some time. First disassembly and cleaning, prep. for Paint.



It's gonnna be ROT  -- Like Rothaus



Door will be silver, or Silber



Some details must be.


Two of the heating plates, or Kochplatten, will be deleted, too many switches and cables. Let's keep it simple.



Only 2 connectoer left for the plates



Testing all elements which are left, and they all work.



No worries, it's not bend. Just the picture.



What can I do with the holes.



Big holes.



I know, I put ein Deckel drauf, there you go. The last piece to be finished.

I don't think the bug hit any cones.

An other not planned project came up. the 944 need a clutch job. Took it apart today. Ordering parts tomorrow, to be here next week. Hope it's back together next weekend before Christmess.

Cheers

The 944 has a transaxle and torque tube, right?  Is it easier or harder to do a clutch with that setup?  I'd be interested in seeing pics if you take them...I've never really at any car with a front engine and rear transaxle in any detail.

Here is what it looks like.

Car on the lift



Exhaust has to come off.



I lowered the transmission on the bridge jack.





Disconnect the torq tube and moved it back, as far as possible





Removed the clutch casing and here it is.



Looks like the car still had the original clutch with the rubber center.



The good thing is that I just last month found that somebody on the Porsche forum had a good clutch for sale, and I got it for 70 bucks instean 700 new.



The flywheel looks good also.



Got new T/O bearing, the Pilot, and 2 small bearing for the fork on Order. Should have it by end of this week, and that puppy goes back together. The reason I took it apart I some noise comming from the clutch area when the clutch was in. As soon I pushed it just a little the noise was gone. The old clutch plate was about ready for replacement. It's crazy but a job like this can go quickly up to 2k.

Cheers

It's all back together, no more noisy T/O bearing.

On the 911 I would have done this a lot quicker

I had this trunk lid from a '68 912 sitting around. It has some pitting on the inside frame, and is not good to use for restoration anymore, so I made some Garage art out of it. Got it mounted today.

Here is an update. Had to many other things going, however, last weekend I made a little progress.

Disassembly of the top.









Outer skin is off


Got some rotten wood


All is gone


Next, the sound mats, with heater gun and scraper





Doors off, they have some rust at the bottom, details later.


Engine is also out, a little easier as the 911.





The dash is gone, the wire harnes from the fuse box to the rear end as well, and the windshield.

Clean-up time and beer time.


Next weekend front wire harness and whatever is left.

Cheers

Time for an update:

Last Weekened I got back on it. Removed the rest of the wire harness.

Disassembled the doors etc.

Here some pictures

What happen to this car Huh??



Why does it have a hole, and it looks like somebody cut it out with a chainsaw.



Anyway, I think I need to fix this, besides other holes.

Here is one door. It has some rust at the bottom.

Maybe the hole is to fit some skis?  I love how simple the car is, overall.

To small for me. I like 1 : 1 Scale, and six cylinders



and 12 spark plugs is enough.



Did some work on the 911 last weekend.

Beefed up the torsion bars a few notches, alignment, etc. Need to fine tune the corner balance, etc.
