Windschutzscheibe nachdichten, Beispiel 911

Mein Carrera-Pflegekind ließ zuletzt bei ausgiebigen Handwäschen mit dem Hochdruckreiniger ein paar Schnapsgläser Wasser auf die Beifahrerfußmatte tropfen. Hauptverdächtiger war die Dichtung der Windschutzscheibe. Mit originalen Scheiben und ori[...]

Raspberry Gin Tonic

My first Air Cooled 911 Porsche

A long, long time ago I got my first taste of a Air Cooled Porsche 1972 911T. I think at the time the 911T was like the base model. Nothing special no Fuch's but Cookie cutters wheels instead. Geez I don't even remember if it was a 4 or 5 speed [...]

’65 911 Restoration: Body Work

After careful consideration I came to the conclusion that from all the possible methods of paint removing, good old sandblasting is it. There are few things in life that look as delicious as a freshly sandblasted body. Welding in this case was l[...]
