So, I had to remove my front valance so the easy way is to also remove the front bumper. So easy, 4 bolts hold the front bumper on and 8 screws hold the valance on. I took the opportunity to detail the nose and put a nice coat of wax on it before reinstalling the valance and bumper. The photo makes the green look brighter than it is; my car is Irish Green.

Sorry, I have a GT style oil cooler in the frunk, it is covered with an aluminum shroud and vents out the trunk floor through a louvered panel. The 5 round holes that typically have rubber plugs in them, are left out to allow the air to come in and through the cooler. I did not need to modify the nose panel. It keeps the car nice and cool, typically running around 195-205 when driving int he summer.

Sorry, I have a GT oil cooler in the front trunk. It is covered by the aluminum shroud that is covered in the Perlon carpet. The bottom of the trunk, below the shroud, is louvered for the hot air to escape. Keeps the car around 190 degrees most of the time. When the weather is really hot, 100 degree plus, the car will creep to about 205 degrees. Here is the cooler:

I have my car entered at the Werks Reunion at Bayonet Golf Club in Seaside, CA on Friday. I thought it would be cool to see what "professionals" think about it. I do not intend to show it other than this once (I hope) as I enjoy driving it too much. I did spend about 8 hours getting her cleaned up even though I am driving to the show and back. It's about 100 miles each way so I know it will get a bit dirty on the drive, but at least it will start clean.

Thank you so much guys; I appreciate that.

Well, the PCA Werks Reunion at the Bayonet Golf Club in Seaside, CA was a terrific venue and wonderful event. The weather was about perfect- not real hot. The place was packed with people all having a wonderful time and being very respectful of the cars. I talked to so many people abut the 914-6 in general and my car specifically.

My car was well received by everyone. They had about 700 Porsches present, and about 200 of those were entered to be judged. I was in the 914/914-6 class (of course) and the 914 was the featured car of the event. I was honored to receive the 1st Place ribbon and award. I made sure to thank Kent Simmons, Jim Geer, Bob Fulton and Andy Thonet for making my dream come true. I also made sure to tell them my car is no garage/trailer queen with 5K miles on it in the past year. Here are a couple pictures, because as we know, without pictures, it did not happen.

OK, so I am the one in the blue T-shirt, the guy in the middle is the self-explanatory, and my brother Bob is on the other end. He has lived this journey with me and I was happy to have him by my side.

Cheers,
Michael
