Paint progressing perfectly

Update by Tim Suddard to the Porsche 914 project car
Nov 8, 2001

Work is progressing very quickly now on our Porsche 914 project. The paint work is all done, and we have begun the arduous, yet intensely fun task of putting the entire car back together.

We are extremely happy with the way our paint and body work came out, and the guys at The Body Werks are to be commended. While we are not concours kind of guys, we think the flawless Zambizi Green paint and body work we have would hold up at any show in the country. The car was entirely disassembled, and every single part was painted properly, including the entire underside of the car.

This weekend, we plan on reinstalling the engine and transmission; soon after, we will begin the suspension rebuild and reinstall. Our initial setup will be 100 lbs./in. rear springs, Koni shocks at all four corners, while various suspension goodies from Weltmeister, GPR and Shine Racing will be tested out.
