Didn't work on my Porsche this weekend. Waiting one some more parts to come in before real progress can start. Most of the car is already apart. Instead, I spent time playing around with my gopros and video editing some more.

Doing a PCA event this weekend at NOLA motorsports, can't wait to get a go pro in the car and show comet why a 911 is not a street legal race car in my lonely ole s50 e36.

Beautiful build Don, can't wait to see the finished product. I am all about doing different things that you never see. Should turn out to be pretty awesome.

Thanks. I am fairly motivated to get it done and out of the way. Although I do enjoy the building process, I'll enjoy it more once it's all done.

Only pictures I can post right now. The internet server that I am connected through won't let me access my host/server, so these instagram pictures will have to do for now.

I feel like the interior is stripped to a good point now. Whatever is left, I will just end up covering with sound deadening and carpet anyways, so getting every last glue adhesive/residue out is not too necessary imo. Sorry about the lack of updates. I've been doing more work than actual picture taking.

Got most of parts necessary to start mocking up the engine to make the mounts/brackets now.

There's only so much left of the car, sometimes I want to take everything off and go through a complete cleaning of all of the parts so they are like new again. However, the car is going to be a driver, so I am probably going to focus on the actual building of the car versus the cleaning of parts that you are never going to see anyways.

These are the old coilovers off of my car that I am going to be selling. They worked good, but I needed something different with everything else that I was doing to the car.



The suspension that will be replacing them. Moton Motorsports 2 way adjustables. I most likely will just have to add camber plates to for the front struts, and everything will be just dandy.

Are you planning on doing a mid-engine mounting or are you sticking with rear mount?

If rear, you have to contend with the added weight over the rear axle, If mid you are going to need to re-engineer the body to slide the engine to what is essentially the cockpit

Next, how are you planning to mount the water radiator and route air to cool it.

Thirdly, what are you using for a transaxle or transmission? The configuration will be diffcult to marry a Porshce body with a Chevy engine.

I will be on the watch for this, very ambitious.
Those are a lot of good assumptions. If you do a little bit of research, you'll easily find the answers to those questions.

Radiator can be mounted anywhere there is air flow. It's fairly simple.
