Garold...I see you were kind enough to also supply Glen with a snow shovel to scoop up the parts (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
It will be fun to watch the build..(IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumb3d.gif)

Build??? That car will probably get mothballed in Stazak's secret basement, which is kinda like Silence of the Lambs, but only with rare 914-6 parts

I've just started stripping mine, so could you wait a few months please? Then I can just copy and paste what you do when you re build!? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Good luck with it, I'll be taking notes!

For the record, when the car left Williamsburg, VA the factory engine was in there somewhere. Given the IL winters @GaroldShaffer got a good trade for those snow shovels.

I picked this car up in 2003 from the original owner out of San Diego and drove it for probably 2 years before discovering cancer. Body work and paint finished up in 2015 after almost a decade in the shop and I put it in storage while I was in Africa. The stock engine was built by Wayne Baker, long ago, to be a 2.5 with an oil cooler in the rear fender. Although I stripped it down and had every intention of assembling it myself, and still work on parts of it today, other animate objects are wanton of me as well.

To say that I am happy to have Glen at the helm of this assembly is an understatement. Glen was at the top of my list to ask who he would suggest do my car. And as luck would have it I called someone else first and they said "Well, Glen of course".

Thank you to the World, whose members I have followed and grown to know as well as anyone can via digital media. In learning about cars I have also learned about people and about persons. I do not subscribe or visit any other 914 sites, or any social media site for that matter, but I agree with the folks on here that praise the World for the generosity of its members.

thanks,
Bill

Hello Bill
Welcome to the world of an empty chassis build !
Everyone's time frame is personal. Some are fast, many are slower.
The dream and the time is what keeps us vibrant and enthusiastic.
You're in good hands.....Glenn is one of the originals from way back and
knows our cars thoroughly.
Enjoy the process.
Rory

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) Yep, got a great deal on the snow shovels. This is going to be a fun build to watch. The pick up and delivery to Glenn was adventure for sure between, two flat tires on the trailer during the trip and ever so lovely traffic mess in Washington. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif)

Your car is in good hands. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

Glenn, Brad, and Garold are great resources for those of us cursed to live in the midwest snow belt, where all 914s are sleeping for those long winter nights.

All the parts have been sorted, time to prepare for the main body wiring harness installation.

I use 8mm heat shrink on the wire holder tabs...makes for a snug fit
