 :cry: sure, just twist that knife.   :cry:
send me the details (again).  it is almost mid-year bonus time.  Think Stacie will notice a 912 hiding in the garage?  yes, she would.  guess I need to seek approval first.

hmmm.  at least the 912 is less expensive than the boxter S.  :wink:

$13-16K 8O Love the lack of muffler...that thing must be loud as all get out!

Quote from: "Their Website"
For drivers using motors in the 400HP range it's recommended that you have at least 1 season of driving experience in the dunes driving a car with 300HP or less before using something as powerful as our 400-450HP package.  400HP can be a handful to drive, especially for the newbie driver in the dunes. It's very important to get some experience under your belt before you buy something this powerful.

I also vote for the OD Green, without knowing what OD stands for. I'd vote for any green.

this looks like a HUGE project.  You seem to be missing some critical components, engine, rear springs, seats, instrumentation.  Oh well, at least you will get some moral support from the folks here.   :D

I think we are going to need some in-progress pics as you go.  :!:

I was thinking of building a baja... I wonder if I can build a reliable turbo-charged AC 2000cc or bolt on a centrifugal with blow thru carbs.

You could definately build one but im not sure the word reliable would be involved. :lol:

Spent most of the weekend scrapeing the tub, and geting the old interior bits out. Sucked about 2lbs of dirt out of it with the shop vac.

My arms feel like Jello from scrapeing and grinding, but progress is being made.

Got most of the bondo off the dash, I think im going to clear coat the bare metal and roll with it.

Still have some work to do around the glove box and ashtray area but its comeing along.




Got most of the tar like sound deadning out of the tub as well.
Not sure if thats the stock location for the headlight high low switch, its really weird to get to.

Looks like when my dad was restored a Citroen 2CV back in the early 1990s.  Lots of grinding, lots of welding, and a lot of new parts, but none of them particularly expensive to procure.

What are you going to put into the interior? Stock, authentic material, or more customized stuff? We've talked some about the exterior and the engine, now on to the stuff that is visible most to you. :)

If you need some "non-vital component" welding done and willing to let an amatuer hone his skill, let me know.

Im going to do some more sanding on the dash, polish it up nice and clear coat it good. I really like the raw metal look. The only stock interior items that will be returning are door cards and rear quarters. The tub is going to be stripped to bare metal with navil jelly and coated with roll on bed liner.

Roll cage, some bucket seats (im on the hunt for some starion seats) and flat black rattle can the headliner area and all the parts that dont get roll on bed liner.

Thats it for the inside... pretty much. some vdo guages

Ill definatly let you know! I have tons of little screw holes in the tub, that could use to be spoted and ground smooth.

I was going to recommend a Defi VSD Concept with the controller, through which you can monitor most vital car system with use of a digital HUD, but then it might not fit with the look of the interior of your car.  I'm assuming you'll be working on the interior first.

Ya ill get the interior preped and start hunting down a roll cage and some seats, once those are welded in I can coat the tub. Ill paint the rest of the interior and finish the dash while I wait on the cage and seats. My list is around 2 pages now :roll:  LOL what fun.
