    Drove my 71 daily for 20 years. <br /><br /><br />
    The current 72 is a fair weather driver with minimal updates to improve the enjoyment. <br /><br />
    In 2017 added a R200 with a M-factory LSD(now sold) and an 83 close ratio 5 speed.<br /><br />
    Added an R180 CLSD 3.90 in 2018

  1. Ian I am interested in how you reproduced the ribbed rubber piece. I would like to find one to fit to my after market version footrest.
  2. Sorry Kats I just noticed this comment and I apologize for not being clear. As I mentioned before I purchased an after market version of the foot rest a number of years ago thinking my wife would appreciate it. As you can see from the photos it mounts differently than the original. I was particularly interested in your carpet. Appears the solution is to have a carpet mat made. also I am interested in knowing how you reproduced the ribbed rubber cover.
  3. I see you got specific information on the Morton Wheels. However I have a set of these BRE branded wheels on my 240. I purchased them directly from BRE2.com with BRE caps. I have the 15X7 with 205/60R Michlin tires. BRE calls these Libre and VTO calls them Retro 4. PS you get them in a 14" and VTO
  4. @KatZ I am curious about your floor mat. Is it a Custom Version? I have an aftermarket version that is very similar to the photos here except is chrome not black It is new and still in the original box.
  5. Thought I would weigh in here. Here is my stock looking radio. It was converted to a FMR-2 Aurora. I have made this conversion on this radio and a 62 Corvette Wonder Bar. no one has discover any change yet. AmFm seek still work including the tuning light. However it also has a 40W 4 channel output. Plus an AUX input that plugs into my XR iPhone hidden in the center console. Blue is a option also if want to drive and visit, but not for me. See more info at Joesclassiccarradio.com Just another way to enjoy a classic driver. “Drive a Classic”
  6. In 2016 I spent $13k on an exterior paint. Minor rust repair. Resprayed the original Color. I did the glass and chrome removal, they welded the holes left from the side molding removal, and after market mirror holes. They tested old paint depth and checked any questionable areas. Shop is Euroteckbodyworks.com a noted Porsche shop. I replaced the glass, bumpers, mirror and badges. A full strip and repair here would run $30 - 50K based on the amount of rust repair. A mechanic shop on the east side of the Seattle metro area is $130 -160 hr shop time. I am aware of at least four stock and custom restorations in the area of $125k, $135, $160 and $??? a Gold winner at ZCON.
  7. So most of us in states that don’t require the smog equipment to be intact have removed the them. If you do box them up and save them. Doesn’t your air cleaner bolt to the carbs? looks like you are working on a 72 with the stock motor. I don’t recognize the brand header you have but I am sure someone here has already made this change. What are you planning for the rest of the exhaust system? plus we love photos of cars here and their stories Welcome aboard Don
  8. @Zed Head not really bad photo the alignment Mark is almost on the zero mark but the timing light says 7degree. Hope to spend some time at the dyno this spring. Last year I was running lean and we adjusted the carbs by feel. Time to do it again. Madkaw rebuilt my e31 head with bigger exhaust valves.
  9. A sip almost always helps. What’s your preference?
  10. ‘No, moving the module I s the last thing i did. As I understand you located TDC, you have a pointer or created one. Mark your balancer, it is on the PS of the motor near the top of the balancer. Set your oil pump drive spindle to the 11.20 position. Instal the rotor. It should point to the number one plug wire. If not rotate the distributor until it does. I use a sharpie to Mark the outside of the distributor so you can see where it is without the cap. Now you are a TDC with the rotor and distributor set the number one on compression. Turn on your key and slide the module along the mount until the light on the box comes on. Now you should be a zero degrees advance. Install the cap and install the wires following the firing order. If it doesn’t start rotate the distributors clock wise. @Zed Head I did not have time to reread the full post. I am I missing something Module
