Other than those, I can't think of anything either...

BTW, as soon as the pandemic is quieter (and I'm vaccinated) I want a ride in that Targa.

There are still a few things I want to get done to make it complete.

One thing was the fact that the wiring under the dash is visible when the door is open and you look in to the car.

So I made some under dash covers, to clean it up. Here are some pictures.

A little CAD work:


I used the same material I used for the door cards:


Looks much better now:




An other thing was the fuse box. Since I modified some of the wiring and location of the relays, I made a new label for the fuse box. So now when I take the cover off, I have all fuses and relays listed in the correct place.





Cheers
Engelbert

I took the Targa to the RPM (Richmond Porsche Meet) last weekend, and the Targa got 1st place out of 4 in it's class.
