  2. I’ve relisted as I’ve now converted the car back to stock - most enquiries asked what would be involved so I just did it . This is my 74 built 1975 model year targa , finished as original in light yellow . Its a 2.7 with a manual 4 speed and is a numbers matching car . I have gone over the motor renewing all the seals and gaskets including all the hard to reach ones on the top of engine underneath the intake . Manifold gaskets were changed at the same time and the injection has been gone through . All required hoses and oil return tubes have been changed . Whilst the engine was disassembled and out I checked all the head studs and fitted a new 3 piece clutch and thrust washer . I have also done plugs , dizzy cap , rotor coil and points The rear spring plates were changed to adjustable ones and I have fitted Yokohama geolander AT tyres and have less than 1000 miles on them . These are fitted to the original cookie cutter wheels and these are in a great refurbed condition. The front bumper is an original US spec bumper although the car was delivered to Germany originally so is a Euro spec . Under the hood is a new petrol tank - all discs etc are in very good order and it's had new stainless braided hoses and new callipers all round .The bodywork is in very good condition with no rust and the same can be said of the Underside , there is no rust al all under the car or under the arches , it's all very good which is rare for a car like this The interior is in good if not perfect interior with black vinyl front and rear seats - I have added a yellow tartan cloth to brighten it a bit . I made new cards , changed the openers to pulls and the door shut to a separate pull handle - I also fitted a pair of pioneer speakers that are powered by a blaupunkt Toronto stereo with Bluetooth . there is no rust under the car as all this was addressed previously and it?s well done and under sealed . All in all its a great entry into classic 911 ownership and it?s ready to go - I use this a lot and it really is a turn key car regularly doing 2 hour plus drives to shows and meetings .Ready for someone to use and enjoy whilst continuing to improve . A sure fire investment, Any questions please DM me or call 07545969565 regards Jon
  3. It’s now in classified ads on here . Reduced to £33500
  4. Rear bumper is next on the list removed over riders and rubbers , everything smoothed and rear bumper guard made . relocation of rear plate lights As you can see , as I sort each part I’m also painting each piece . the rear guard is painted in raptor 2 pack paint which is nice and hard
  5. I realise that not too many are following this silly little build , but I thought I’d put it here first that the car will be for sale when I’ve done the work I want to do . I won’t be wanting a fortune , so sub £40k mill continue to put updates on here as I complete stuff , if there is any interest please hit me up . Next job was to alter exhaust , what I want to do at the rear means that the side exhaust doesn’t really work for me . so I took the original , cut the top off and adjusted the internals to suit a central outlet . when you want it central on the car it isn’t central on the exhaust so a big job really , next time I will just buy one
  6. On a side note , I have been able to smell a bit of petrol fumes the last time I used the car and wanted to sort that for obvious reasons . I changed the front hoses and had a look at the rear hose that goes to the pump from the tunnel outlet . I literally touched it and fuel started flowing - it had literally petrified and crumbled in my hands . lots of issues potentially with new E10 fuel and rubber tubes - check them and if you can smell fuel something is not right .
  7. The interior on the car is all black and the door pockets are past their best - so a little upgrade / change . I made new door cards and changed to door pulls as well as the closing handles . now much simpler and a bit of colour added just to brighten it up inside the steering wheel was a bit big so I swapped it out for an old MOMO one I had . The keen eyed among you will notice I also changed the speedo to an MPH one - just need to recalibrate that a bit now
  8. Nice to see Caffeine and Machine using a picture of the Safarga to advertise their upcoming aircooled weekend
  9. Continuing with the rally / safari theme I decided to put some additional lights on the front , originally I was going to put a 4 light pod but whilst searching I came across some cibie Pallas spotlights at the right money so they were purchased whilst I was doing the lights I also stripped the bonnet , carried out a couple of silly repairs and painted that as well as the lights to match
  10. Thanks for sharing - I like what you have done to it now , looks great . I would have done similar if it was a coupe , but being a targa I thought I’d have some fun with it
  11. Next up was a height adjustment . I originally tried one inner spline but could not get the rear camber right with factory adjustment - too much positive camber , if anyone knows how to get more then please help me out ?? I settled on one outer spline for now , adjusted the front and rear camber and I’m happy with how it sits and drives - I used a set of adjustable rear arms which seemed to help setup it gives me about 11 inches of ground clearance all round I’d just like it to be a little higher
  12. Next on the hit list we’re wheels and tyres . Not a big fan of cookie cutters do I replaced them with some Fuch I had for my 912 build . These are original tubes 901 deep six without hearts . Not really what I want on something I intend to drive around in a lot ( may be for sale ) tyres were swapped to yokahama 205 70 15 A/T all round
  13. So as you probably gathered the above are 2 of my other cars . anyway back to the old targa . One of the issues was that the rear bumperettes were odd , one from this age car and one for a wide body , as such the back end looked all wrong . again I had a nice set of steel ones here so stripped and painted those . I also painted the rear end as well as there was a bit of rust above the bumperettes a new set of rear lenses helped make it look much tidier
  14. You won’t get an argument from me about outlaws
  15. All my other Porsches are built or will be built as outlaws , I wanted to do something different with this one , especially as a targa has no real race provenience . I mentioned that I had some running problems and also a few oil leaks . I decided to drop the engine and check the head studs were not snapped and also clean all the injection system , do a good service and attack tge valley of death with new seals . I also did a couple of oil rubbers and the oil return tubes . I didn’t take pictures but let’s be fair that’s fairly boring stuff .
