    I got outbid on it by someone else who wanted it more. Was a 1970 914.....we had agreed on a price and then he reneged today based on getting a higher offer....I had a feeling as soon as we had a deal he would call everyone on the fence about it and apply pressure.

    Well in a happy turn of events I ended up buying the car today!!

    The tub has been fully sandblasted, new metal welded in where needed, 914-6 bracing added, seam sealed and painted factory orange underneath, in wheel wells, floors, trunk and engine bay. GT fender flares added. Still lots to do but massive head start. Tons and tons of parts came with it too.

    Super excited - been wanting a flared 914 for years now.

    I talked to the guy that did all the work to the 914 and got a bunch of pics from during the process. Really great reference to have.

    It has had the 914-6 chassis bracing welded into the rear wheel wells as well as inside the cabin.

    The entire tub was sandblasted and epoxy primed after the sheet metal areas that needed new metal were fixed.

    Bought a few parts online - dash steel structure assembly, gauges etc as all that was missing for some reason...

    Trying to decide between traditional Fuchs 911 alloys and 911/944 cookie cutter alloys - kinda leaning towards the cookie cutters at this point.

    Nice! My vote goes to the cookie cutters.

    Well... the dash frame, gauges, heater controls etc were all missing from the stack of parts that came with the car. I have since bought 2 dash frames and 2 gauge pod sets to piece together as nice a set up as possible. There is an early and late style of dash I have learned and I am trying to keep the car as “early” as possible.
