#2 is now ready for one more light blast and epoxy primer. It then goes to speedworks in Santee for paint. Brad had been doing all my Ferrari Dinos for years so this will be a change of pace. #3 is very close to having all the metal work also

With the Miura now gone we turned our attention back to the Porsches. More metal work and some fitting of parts. We have used no fiberglass and now have steel front bumper, aluminum front hood, metal rear bumpers and we crafted an aluminum ducktail. We are using all 930 rear suspension and still wanting to use the deep RSR wheels it was necessary to widen the flares 1 1/4 inch. I’m doing an exterior oil filler even though this is a 73 model, but it will have no flap and the cap with protrude from the body. The first one is going to be Gulf Blue with orange accents. The two other projects will be identical build just different colors. A limited run of 3!!!
