More butyl sound deadening mat skillfully cut to match body panels. Same as laying a hand on a vibrating drum head. So important in an EV. Now I can hear myself think. #quietude #914restoration @914rubber

Application of sound deadening butyl mat to the rear firewall eliminates the tin-canny feel of the cabin environment. Swipe image for before/after. #noico #914restoration #quietintheback #pindrop

Moved the engine compartment lid farther along today. Added the Porch-ah lettering and buffer strip. Still waiting on a few parts from our buds @914rubber before it can be installed.

Just arrived. Newly rebuilt 914 calipers all around done right. Yellow zinc anodized inside and out will prevent corrosion and give years of faithful service. PMB Performance is your guardian angel. @pmb_performance #yellowzinc #914restoration #getyourgoldon

What is your advice to someone installing  the triangle window seal on a 914? 
I spent a little time yesterday working on installation instructions as I put my door back togather. 
What is the secret? This is what I  have so far:
1. Put the glass in the seal.
2. Hand soap on the window frame rail and the seal.
3. Lay the rail down with the track facing up and slide the window and seal on to the rail.
4. Put the triangle window cap on the top of the rail and glass.
5. Secure the glass and seal to the rail with shrink wrap.
6. Carefully insert the rail into the door.
7. Put the front tab into the outer door seal channel at the front of the door.
8. Push down on the glass to seat the seal. 
What tips do you have to add to this?

Just a couple updates that make all the difference. SPAL universal power window kits on both doors, and the Camp914 air spring kit for both front and rear hoods. Had terrific luck with both on the yellow 914. Still going strong. #914restoration #electric914 #rolldownthewindow #camp914 #spalpowerwindows

Not Everything we got to see in California was beautiful. We did see a 914 in almost every shop we visited. This car that only a few years ago would have been done, is now being restored. It is amazing how well these cars actually do in an accident.

Sent the Build-off car back to @brosseauscoachworks for some love after I put this nasty scratch in the top of the door at the end of the build-off challenge. 36 hours straight working on the car. I  don't recommend it for reasons like this.
After the car comes back, we will be pulling the motor @middlemotors and putting on a full micro-squirt fuel injection system from Mario @thedubshop.

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

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

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.
