Porsche 914

Final update on the 914

 

With illness, christmas and holidays its taken a little longer than estimated to get the fourteen finished.

 

before christmas we got the rear screen area finished with some satin black along with the targa roof section. Also the front and rear lower bumpers and sills in gloss black.

The body then had a good polish and the big refit started. New rubbers all round, new front screen and chrome trim direct from Porsche. We had noz from ABR screens over to do the bonding part. http://abrwindscreens.co.uk   while all this way going on the wheels had a mild refurb. the wheels in question are original magnesium minilight in Porsche spec, we only gave them a light refurb so they still had there original rough cast marks and original look to them.

Some finished pics, Steve still has the mirrors and a few parts to play with.

O/S, made from a template of the other side and welded in to keep them both the same.

Holes from (i think) american spec indicators that steve didnt want anymore

Small plate made and held in place by a magnet before welding

Welded and ground smooth, just needs a small skim of filler to blend it in to the old paint. The inside has also been ground smooth, sealed and undersealed.

2 shots not many bodyshops post pics of, the pre primer shot. showing just how little filler we have put in. Also note the under of the car is masked up to stop any over spray getting on areas that dont want it.

The screen was cut out the 914 earlier, interior masked up, front bonnet area masked up to start some serious cleaning and de-rusting.

Most of the car is now prepped and ready for a few bits of filler.

But the other side vent was looking solid until i gave it a clean up. it was made 100% from fiberglass!!! not good. Even the inner sections need welding on this side. on with some more fabrication
