wipers are pretty rare. The same wiper is used for the 904
and the 910. The wiper will be bead blasted and painted satin
still get the wiper.
pretty good. Even the original N.O.S. squirter. I have saved
a few of these from the old days and it's nice to have them
for these really great Porsche racers.
the exhaust pipes are fitted to the pipe hanger and will be
sent off to be Jet Hot coated.
Since this photo was taken, the pipes were coated and are
now on the car.
see them sneaking through the bottom of the undertray.
been waiting for these rear air ducts. The originals were
plastic and not very durable (which is why you never see them).
I got these from Kerry Morse through Mike, "the Shark",
Gent. He needed them for his project and got Kerry to produce
them for me too. Thanks Mike and Kerry.
the plastic ones were finished on both sides, I sanded and
duratec'd the fiberglass cloth to make it smooth. The ducts
now look like the originals but are very strong and will hopefully
never crack. The reason why there are multiples in the picture
is because I had extras made for Tom Stegman's Carrera 6.
the factory paper-coated duct. This is what the factory used
because it was very light. Don't worry boys, the cars also
came with the canvas-coated duct.
someone had to do it...and it was Gunnar Racing. We now have
floorboards for the Carrera 6.
We had to take three broken floorboards and glue them all
together to get one part to make a mold from.
I have made two and one will go to Tom's 906.
on the left, the part on the right. I gel coat the color onto
the part. It is fiberglass not plastic, but it won't scratch
through to the wrong color and they won't crack or disintegrate
like the original plastic floors.
duct is installed, which guides cool air to the fan, rather
than sucking the hot air from around the engine.
installed the original windshield washer bag, which goes on
the inside of the left front fender.
this car the Geze clamp (old ski binding) on the tail. This
was a factory update because the original latches sometimes
would let the tail fly open. We also installed the 910 type
door latch for the front hinging for the driver's door. This
was another factory update.
the Geze clamps 100 years ago and luckily have a few left.
button was used on some updated Carrera 6's, all 910's, all
907's, all 908's, all 917's, and believe it or not...962's,
but the 962 had a key button. These buttons are from a 1960
VW rear deck lid. An interesting note...when you bought a
new 962, you got two Porsche ignition keys (the ignition switch
was 911), and two keys for the doors. Of course, the keys
for the doors were the stamped VW emblem key. Way cool!
of the finished detail. Remember, the passenger door retains
its original "Gul"l style door hinges.
switch in the picture on the right is not original to a 906,
but when this became mandatory in the early '70's, this is
where the switch was installed.
what the sun will do to signal red. For those of you who notice
the car in the back, it is the 1983 overall winner at the
24 hours of Le Mans. The drivers were Holbert, Schuppan and
looks finished, but it has a cracked rear window. We are waiting
for the new one to get finished, which will hopefully be sometime
a few more shots for you.
the end for now.
