  1. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had a template for the door cards on a late 1970's 911? Just something on paper or cardboard. Happy to pay someone to post it to me please.
  2. That's the plan mate. But this is all the easy stuff at the moment. Another productive weekend. Fuel cell and oil tank final fitment, just waiting for hosing and fittings to be delivered. Oil cooler first fitment. Lots of front suspension and brake work done. Next will be some final fitment in the front end, some more paint on the cage etc, fuel lines and oil lines, pedal box and reservoir fitment with some brake lines.
  3. Some shiny bits going in this weekend.
  4. Some more painting this weekend and some presents opened and fitted. Had some help this weekend on the tension wrench.
  5. Agreed, the more I get in to it the luckier I am. The shell is immaculate.
  6. So we have the car in primer now and have put some KBS rust seal on the on the front inner guards and the Frunk followed by Blacktop Chassis coater in satin black. Next step will be to get the inner floor and outer floor painted so some assembly can begin. Everyday is like Christmas when the mail man comes at the moment. Coilover springs for the FOX shocks arrived along with Tilton reservoir, the ARP engine stud kit, new wheel bearings and some other odds and ends.
  7. Hello, Can you tell me where you got you back date lights and rear bar from please.
  8. Hello, Would anyone have some measurements/cardboard/old carpets that I could use for a template to get my upholsterer to make new carpets. Thank you.
  9. Yes I am in Launceston, where are you located? And sorry but I didn't catch your name. Ringer is helping a bit but Lupo is doing the engine. You are welcome to come and have a look at any stage.
  10. Hello, It is Scott's and yes the car was local.
  11. Hello all, Further to my introduction that I have posted below and now added some photos. About 3 weeks ago I purchased a basket case. In other words I basically bought it in a basket. It is a 77 guards red 911 original Australian delivered car and rust free. It was stripped and began being back dated 10 years ago by the previous owner who unfortunately passed away 3 years ago. His family didn't know what to do with the car until they recently decided it was too big a task for them to complete. The previous owner was going down a 73 rsr replica path and was building to targa and hill climb. I bought it as a shell on a trolley that has had the long nose panel work done on the front. It has been seem welded, has had stainless oil cooler lines placed through the tunnel and adjustable mounts placed in the rear therefore the rear seat wells removed. Patrick racing oil tank mounted, a full cage fitted. The cage had not been signed off with CAMS and because it was done almost 10 years ago was now not compliant. I have now had the cage updated and signed off. I got a lot of new parts with the car that have never been fitted. As mentioned this was being built basically as a race car but I am going down a more weekend club day car path. Some of the items include a 3.2 litre engine with Nickies cylinders, JE pistons, Xtreme racing heads, Doherty racing cams. 50mm PMO carbs among an array of other things all new in boxes. For the brakes I got Tilton pedal box and associated parts, and Brembo Grand Turismo brake kits for all corners along with custom made 17" Fuchs wheels x 8 and x 10. Front end is Smart racing ERP, swab bar and bump steer kit and for the rear Smart racing sway bar etc. It also came with FOX racing coil-overs for all corners. There is an array of other items, like twin spark distributor, lexen windows, Giken superlock diff, Fuel safe racing cell, Wevo engine mounts etc etc etc. Although all of it is still in a million pieces. The plan is; the engine is being assembled currently, the gearbox will be started soon, the cage has been done, the car finishes its sand blast next week. It will then get painted everywhere except the outer so assembly can start. Currently confirming leather and the interior will start also. I am being very ambitious and wanting it done by Christmas. Wish me luck. In will attempt to add some photos. Maybe to another post. I will more that likely need some parts as some stage so any help will be appreciated. Jason. And today we sand blasted and delivered home.
  12. Hello all, My name is Jason and I am new. New to owning a Porsche and new to the forum. But not new to being a lover of 911's. That passion has been around since I was a child as has my appreciation for cars. Although to date the ownership has only extended to Holden's, with a Sandman, SS Torana, Brock commodore and a couple of others in the shed. About 3 weeks ago I purchased a basket case. In other words I basically bought it in a basket. It is a 77 guards red 911 original Australian delivered car and rust free. It was stripped and began being back dated 10 years ago by the previous owner who unfortunately passed away 3 years ago.
