Looking good.

Please ditch the aluminum fuses for proper copper ones. Aluminum fuses placed in brass sockets should be illegal....

Yikes, it's a shame JWest doesn't do a 911 version of his 914 panel like that.

His 914 kit for $155 sure is a lot less than that company's $360 911 unit.

Male an adapter that goes in the old torpedo slot and holds a modern spade fuse. That way you don't have to replace the existing setup and can convert any car.

Perfect project for a 3-D printer! other than having to run that pesky wiring in the adaptor.

This one (designed for 24v) appears to be one of the easier designs- I know the Dorki brain trust can improve on it.

When I die, if I come back as a beat up old Porsche badly in need of life saving will you restore me please?

Damn impressive, well done.

Got a few things done on the Targa:

Heater flaps restored:
Before:


After: I know they should be redish, but who cares.


Cleaned up the oil tank, checked the lever sender, re-installed with new gasket. Installed the oil tank.













The pedal system was complete destroyed.



I found usable a replacement.



So I disassembled it.



Blasted.



Powder coated



And assembled it with new brass bushings.



Checked out the windshield wiper system.



Disassembled it and cleaned it up a bit.



Powder coated the frame and it's assembled, tested and ready to be installed



The parking brake lever needed also some attention.



So I disassembled it, powder coated the parts, assembled and ready for installation. Made a new release button from Aluminum.



Still sorting out and testing all wires.



Fixing some connectors.





Finally I mounted a large TV in the garage, so I can see things in the big picture.





Cheers
Engelbert
