seem to be the all end of ends.....whatever that means. It
just seems to be the mood I'm in while it's 80 degrees out,
raining, and 4 days before Christmas. But, in the picture,
Andy has got all the wiper hardware finished from the nickel
plating to the rubber grommet under the pivot shafts.
an original, unrestored linkage arm versus the one we just
restored. Most of these pieces are from other German cars,
adding up to Carrera 6 ready to install.
the proper Carrera 6 hardware. Andy and Jack, who peeks under
Andy's shoulder, are letting the car down to check ride height.
and the car doesn't seem to settle too much. Andy will have
to re-adjust the spring heights. Now if Jack got in, it would
be at the right ride height, but Jack can't be everywhere
the car's going to race..ha ha!
6 weeks later, the two seats are covered. The material used
is a red basket weave from a '66 VW. When Porsche originally
covered the Carrera-6, they used two types of material, this
vinyl type and they also used a felt covered cloth that was
also basket weave. This material is known to be hiding in
a friend's garage in Germany. Someday, when I give him the
two 910 fuel tanks we made him (waiting on Fuel Safe), we
will trade and I will have the original material that the
factory entered cars used.
finally decided to install the plastic window rather than
waiting a few more months for the glass windows that are currently
being made. The plastic windshield is actually safer, lighter,
and all around better than the glass type.
