Last Friday I traded my Pre-A replica for this 912 -69 project..

It had some rear end damage from the shipping to Europe.

Started with working on the rear corners just to see if they were salvagable instead of replacing. Seems to be possible to save original metal...

pretty great trade, that is the BEST year for the 912, and any time you can trade a replica for a real car you are winning

In the 68/ 69 912s there is NO free play in clutch peddle. The Throw out bearing is to run against the pressure plate all the time so replace whenever you pull the motor for clutch work.

Today I got a package with free used taillighthousings. These will help me finish the corners to correct shape. Pretty happy with the rough work so far too.. :)

So what's the plan? Are you going to update it to look like a mid 70s model or maybe an RS?

Hebster52 Fri Nov 29, 2019 3:37 am

Plan is to make my own view of a tribute of a ST. :)

What is an ST?

This is one example of an ST tribute.

Rolled out on saturday to cut out the bent rear framehead.

Yesterday I started reshaping the righth rear corner too.

Prepairing new rear crossmember prior to fitting to body.

Hebster52 Mon Dec 16, 2019 11:04 pm

Started shaping some new part for the rear.

please keep in mind that that car is worth a ton of money in stock form, vs modified. All of that good work can make for a very valuab le car

:lol: :lol:

Not excatly. This is not a matching number 911. Just a pretty empty
912 rolling shell that would cost a fortune to bring back to original spec.
This is a perfect canvas for my plans. :twisted: :twisted:

really great work you are doing. 69 is the most valuable of all of the 912 models

Recieved the RS rearbumper yesterday.

Cardboard mockup... :)

At the moment trying to figure out correct measurement for the original narrowbody from longitudal frame to rear bottomcorner on the rear arches?

Are you a member of the 912 registry ? Lots of smart guys there with 912s. 912 bbs has lots to offer. Robert Hogaboam. Member and 68 912 signal yellow owner.

Hebster52 Thu Dec 19, 2019 10:20 pm

Not a member, yet anyways. I hang around at a few Porsche relatedforums though.

Edit: I appearantly had joined the 912BBS last year in December already.. :D

Hebster52 Sat Dec 28, 2019 2:07 pm

Soon I can start welding the new rear crossmember to the frame!
