Hi Dave!
not much to show, but a lot of time consuming work: scraping off the undercoating under the tank and beneath the parcel tray. i have an appointment with the sandblaster today.
also started on the rear lid, first was to repair rust on the bottom

some more work to the engine lid. louvers are from a 1302 hood. not easy to weld in since the curvature and position differs to early model hoods

body was blasted, but there was a little mishap with the primer  Tongue
anyway, i have a lot of work to do on the pan
started by mounting the 901 fivespeed: cutting off the stock nosemount from the pan, cutting a window for the shiftrod and finding out a way to mount the rear of the trans to the aluminum mount

Great work Karl.

Have you used oil lines through the spine before?
Does it heat up the interior much when you are on a long run or in the summer?

Thanks

i have used oillines in the tunnel before (a lot of people i know did it too) with no adverse effects. keep in mind i am not living in a a very hot climate.
one may try to keep the inspection cover on the framehead open and remove the rubber grommet around the shiftrod so there is air moved through the tunnel. maybe with a hose that takes air through the passenger side horngrill. just a thought...

notches for the adjustable 944 springplates. i modified my plates with welding the front bolt to the inner springplate-part, so i only need the rear notch to be able to turn the adjuster

thanx Andrew and Lyndon
i closed all the holes after sandblasting, so the metal parts i have are ready for bondo work. the front hood and right front fender are still at the blaster (along with the pan). got a really nice stock front left fender from a friend and i am on the hunt for a right rear one.
since i dont feel like covering up the garage due to the dust involved by sanding everything just now, i will do the pan next. in a couple of days she should be ready, black epoxy and all. so i started on finding and painting the rest fo the chassis parts black
