Nothing a little solvent, a wire brush, and some elbow grease won’t shine up. Will spend more time removing the overspray from the harnesses. Four 914 headlight motors reporting for duty. #914restoration #coldgalvanizing

Small inventory of 914 headlight buckets for future projects. Media blasted, two coats of self-etching primer, and three good coats of SEM satin black. These will stay clean for a very long time. #914restoration

Somewhere, somebody is proud to have designed this Porsche windshield wiper mechanism. I respect and admire that. Especially since it bit my thumb (hard). #914restoration #wipermotor

Cary performing surgery on the 72 914. This will be the access door like the later cars had for the fuel pump. Relocating it from the rear of the car will have to reduce vapor lock.

914EV.3 getting a tow home from body and paint. What a thrill to begin the next phase of this project. #914restoration #914electric #evconversion
914EV.3 just returned home to the shop this AM. I really have to thank the crew at #californiawestcoastpaintandbody for the extra special attention they gave to this project. Now the fun can really begin. #evconversion #914restoration
Just out of clear sanding and buffing this morning. Four coats of clear. Beautiful results. Afraid to breathe on it! She comes home tomorrow AM. #likeglass #914restoration

This next phase is clear sanding. The milky sluice covering the car is just the slightest surface layer of clear coat being wet sanded down to the smoothest possible finish to prep for final buffing. Some of the masking has not been removed yet. #914restoration

Exciting moment. Finished two-stage painted, color-sanded, and buffed doors and misc bits. Like glass! Final color is Porsche India Red, which is close to the previous respray, but more Porsche correct. It's a fine, fine color. #likeglass #914restoration

Making the assisted fifty yard trek from body to paint prep. The progress is quite satisfying. #914electric #914restoration
Steady progress on the 914EV#2 bodywork. Some metal replacement in the usual places on this chassis. Then stripping all trim, rubber and hardware for the most clean and thorough finish possible. #electric914 #914electric #914restoration

Seems like we can't go forward much on this car without going backward a bit. It was decided that the 1972 Porsche 914 outlaw needed sway bars. The front bar is pretty easy to do, the back isn't really hard either, it just messes up the fresh paint on the trunk floor, which is now being painted.

Dropped the transaxle for a quick swap to prep for #theclassicautoshow Jan 27-29th at the LA Convention Center. She'll be looking her best. #914electric #914restoration
Two #Porsche914 transaxles freshly rebuilt by Rancho Performance and picked up early Fri morning. These beauties will each find a home in a sweet new 914Electric. Using the original drivetrain allows us to take advantage of a century of Porsche design and engineering. @ranchoperformancetransaxles #914world #914restoration #914electric #evconversion

The outlaw 914 received a good amount of urethane undercoating on both the top and bottom of the new floorboards. This will protect and offer a fair amount of sound deadening. Next will be Dynamat on the inside.
