Apr 4, 2002 update to the Porsche 914 project car

Department of Interior

We now have the interior nearly finished. The seats, back-rest and carpets are all installed. All of the weather seals, the aluminum trim (outlined in our last update) and the scuff plates have been installed. Tommorrow’s project is to neatly build in some high quality 5.5” round Kenwood speakers into the factory speaker housings. From there we will rebuild and install the doors.

The factory Fuchs alloys are now polished. We will be painting the background of the wheels and installing them next week.

On the mechanical front, we have the entire fuel system and electrical system hooked up and we have turned the engine over. We still need to finish hooking up the brake lines and a few other odds and ends. We are just a few more weeks from having the car done and running, and then it will take a month or two to sort everything out. Our next magazine story in scheduled for the August issue- so stay tuned.
