I think that Rich is an even bigger 914 parts hoarder than I am, I thought that I was the biggest. We need to learn to let go so some of these nos and rare rare parts can get to the 914 owners who need them!!!!! (I hug my over 1000 pieces of nos 914 carpeting at least once a week!!!!)
Yes, Rich did work on the car. I think he did the hell hole repair, clutch tube and rebuilt the brakes. It was in his good hands. I do need a new front bumper, front and rear bumper pads too. I might take the car and have a reunion with Rich. I only live about 15 mins away.
the front bumper can be rechromed out there by Nester at the bumper shop, we have the brand new guards and top pad, as they were discontinued by the factory. Excellent excellent identical factory parts if I do say so myself!!!!!
