Sep 9, 2002 update to the Porsche 914 project car

Sorting

Our 914 is fully assembled and has now entered the final sorting phase of its restoration. To make it drivable we have had to deal with the normal snafus that any 30 year old car that has not been properly loved needs. Specifically, Rennie Bryant and Tim spent an entire weekend sorting out lighting and other electrical gremlins. Nothing serious, but bad bulbs, bad grounds and faulty fuses and relays needed to be fixed before all the lighting worked properly again.

Ace diagnostician, Stu Brummer (BSI Racing), is now helping overcome the last few hurdles. Last week we found a faulty wiper switch. Fortunately, Automobile Atlanta had one right in stock. Pelican Parts also sent a few relays and other miscellaneous parts needed to return the 914 to the street. This week, a rich running condition and fuel pump problem will be fixed. By the end of September, the car will be back on the street and the final articles can proceed.

Not sure why you would label it that- it's an actual article series from 17 years ago.  Good that GRM keeps copies of old articles.

In the time that i've been messing with cars from the 80s, i've seen the huge change from fixing up 20 year old cars to fixing up 30 year old cars (ie the same cars, but 10 years later). I hope the difference from 30 to 40 is not as big... surprise

It was revived by a spam post that has since been removed.

Ah.  Sometimes these articles come back from GRM themselves.  Missed the bad post.
