We blueprint all these windshield wiper parts for future
As it ends up,
we have enough NOS parts for both 068 and 119.
These are the finished
parts for 090.
The good news is...040
loaned us a perfect original windshield wiper setup.
better news is that through 30 years of collecting this shit,
I have enough parts, minus a few brackets, to make windshield
wiper arms for 068, 090, and 119.
These parts are
really rare. The picture on the right shows the inside fender
headlight cover brackets. These little guys slide over the
bottom of the covers you see in the picture below. They hold
the caps in place.
More fender light
covers and the gas cap for 068 ready for paint.
various headlight covers and what they look like after 40
years of road rocks. These have been repaired, and what a
great job in getting them to look original...NOT! But they
did keep the headlights from breaking.
on the left are one more day away from final paint after 5
days of restoration. The wheels on the right are for 068 and
have about a week's worth of work before they are finished
in Porsche silver. The photo on the right shows what the wheels
look like before media blasting.
The rivets hold
the steel center to the aluminum rim. These are very special
racing wheels, otherwise known as steel alloys.
are the headlight brackets from 090. We are using them to
make fixtures because 068 and 119 don't have them.
We have already
made the straps for 068 and 119.
090 will get silver paint on the hood and doors next week.
068 will follow.
