Thanks a lot Mike, really kind of you and happy that you enjoy the journey here!

So, we have the next update..






Yes it's back on its wheels and trust me, what a big step after all these frame repair!! Motivation got really high in a couple minutes!!

I directly started to put back some stuff like engine bay seals:


And the short stainless steel lines:

We got some colors!!
I decided to make it a bit unconventional and paint a couple parts first to allow me to move forward with the build..
So here some fresh paint!!




And then I could build the fresh air box, the wiper system and the tank back:


And here:


And the engine is back in:


Now to connect everything, and try to start it again..and of course body paint/building of all parts.. it will move fast now, I want it on the road in june !

Dude! You deserve this nicely done 914! Tangerine is on of my favorite colors. Glad you saved it. Not many people would be willing to put in the effort.

Thanks so much!

I really love the color, which is the original one..phoenix red (which is more orange than red..).

And now the finishing touches:






Put the interior back (temporary, as GT door panels and some more surprises are coming..):


And ....the first 20kms since august 2021 and back home!!




Felt sooooo good to drive it again!! It's such an amazing car !!
