in three areas when we rebuild or restore an old racing Porsche.
1. The tires - basically, anything goes, but Dunlop makes
exact looking period tires, but with different compounds.
2. Driver safety - seat belts, roll bars - anything current
3. Fuel cells - 906's, 910's, 907's, and 908's had aluminum
gas tanks - so we install fuel cells.
pods have been installed and the car was shipped to Orlando
Cairo, a great aluminum fabricator. Orlando has done the fabrication
so the fuel cells will be easily installed with all the new
necessary hardware to connect the left tank to the right tank.
coming up is the new filler neck for filling the fuel tanks.
I will fabricate the original fuel cap so it attaches to the
tail. You will open the cap and see the new filler neck with
a safety cap installed. You will only see the non-original
cap when you remove the original from its factory location.
This makes you think everything is as it was, but safety is
so important in case of an accident. The car will return to
our shop next week and we will do the last few details before
