Steering is complete to the steering column.

In goes a new duct.

Andy measures for the pop rivets, which will hold the duct in place.

Once the duct is in place, the hole is trimmed to fit.

Bingo, ready for installation.

The third tach is for my 904, the other two are the 12 volt electric tachs for the 6 cylinder engines that will be installed in both 904's. The picture on the right are the old antage "we make chicken salad out of chicken shit".

First they are cleaned and polished...

(the inspection for cracks happens during this process)

Andy then dunks them in PPG aluminum metal prep (phosphoric acid).

This solution is diluted with 50% water.

This brings the California shiny to a more original patina.
