    Leather Dash

    Thanks for the comments. The gentleman who did this is Don Thompson and he is located in Northern Ontario which makes getting pieces up and back a challenge. The other thing to bear in mind is that he works from home in his own shop at his own pace. that means you have to be patient as he gets to these projects when is able between fishing trips. His work is excellent if you can wait. If anyone wants his phone number, send me a PM and i will send it to you

    Clock Sleeve

    Thanks all. I will try to make one on the lathe and see how that works. If not, I will go through Home Depot

    Clock Sleeve

    Hi All I have my tii clock but am missing the sleeve (62131350167) and hardware to mount. I haven't seen any reproduction or availability on the sleeve. Is there a source for this part? Has anyone had to make one that could post pictures? Its Number 7 in the diagram. Thanks! Darren

    Leather Dash

    I did contract this out to a professional upholsterer. He also recovered my 911E dash. He is semi-retired and works at his own shop. I can ask him if he'd be interested and send you a PM.

    Leather Dash

    I had a dash crack in the usual spot. I debated about finding an uncracked specimen but thought there is no guarantee a crack wouldn't appear in that one also sooner or later. So I decided to have the dash, glovebox and console covered in leather. I'm pleased with the result and like the stitched premium look. And it smells amazing too! I'm looking forward to breathing that in every time I get behind the wheel.

    Brakes and Suspension

    I've been making significant progress now that the body is home. The brakes and suspension are installed. On the suspension, new Bilsteins all around, all rubber bushings replaced with urethane, and original hardware replated. On the braking system, new brakelines, hoses, rubber seals, reservoir, and rear cylinders all with replated original hardware.
  7. I wanted to revive this topic. Is there a brand of aluminum rad that can be used with the mechanical fan? I see the Champion brand (both 2 and 3 rads specifically state they can't be used with the mechanical fan. Other brands like GPI don't specify either way.

    I found this older thread and am also interested in seeing pictures if anyone has done this

    Gearbox

    Hi Mark. It's Eastwood aluminum paint. Exactly as you commented, it keeps parts looking like new castings and easier to keep clean too

    Gearbox

    It's been a busy few weeks. Lots of progress from headliner to rear suspension to wire harness. Getting close to lifting the engine and gearbox into place. The gearbox has new gaskets and seals. The input, output and gear selection seals were replaced. When I got the car there was a fair bit of oil coming from the gearbox which turned out to be a worn gear selector seal. In the shift linkage, all the rubber bushings and blocks were replaced to give a nice solid and precise shifter feel. A final coat of paint and fill with Redline MTL meant it was ready to be mated to engine.
  12. I have the same question for my stock 73tii front sway bar. Lost my phone and pictures, and this detail is not clearly shown in the parts or service manuals. Could someone confirm for me which way this goes?

    fuse box wiring picture?

    on closer examination it looks like the 2nd diagram in the picture above matches what I have. Are there no wires on the vertical terminals? Just the horizontals are marked

    fuse box wiring picture?

    Does someone have a wire diagram like those above but for this fusebox? I lost my phone that had the photos I took while taking it apart.
