We've been waiting for the fuel pods for 127... We had an original set of pods that were in very bad shape. The owner is going to vintage race this car so fuel cells were a must. Murray Wivell from Canada is restoring the sister, which is 906-128. Murray's car is a Targa winner. Murray is going with original fuel pods so he sold me his fuel cell pods. We will make new cells and fit these very nice pods to our car. Jack is now stripping paint from the original aluminum.

When the paint is stripped, we will make the call to paint the pods Porsche silver or just polish them. These pods fit the car almost perfectly (which is very rare).

Jack holds both sides in place. Tomorrow we will fit the tank straps and finalize the body fit around the pods.
