The universal coupler
The original defroster
duct will clean up real nice and will be re-installed. Note
the original paint on the dash with the serial number.
Once the duct is
installed in a few of the original holes, Andy opens up the
duct in the dash (closed from repair work), so the air duct
meets the opening perfectly.
The dash is installed
once the air duct is pop-riveted in.
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.
Back to the chicken
salad from chicken shit story.
Looks pretty good
when it's hit with a little cleaner wax.
Tom's hubs were
in pretty decent shape, but will look new when we're done.
It's a long process,
but first the hubs are cleaned, then highly polished, then
dipped in acid.
The acid tones
down the shine and gives the aluminum a more original patina
The only thing
better than this process is a new old-stock (NOS) hub.
Andy is now installing
all new bearings in all 4 hubs for both 904's.
A little heat
expands the aluminum and the races drop right in.
We are still able
to get new studs, which are phosphate coated, the original
Andy is installing them.
Bingo, ready to
install on the car.
We only use German
Kluber grease for all of our greasy needs.
Ain't she pretty?
on the car.
