^ no expert here in the different finishes for corrosion protection but that is all it is for. The corrosion protection needs to be reapplied due to the cleaning and particularly the bead blasting process. From what I understand, this stuff is one of the preferred finishes for aluminum. Anyway, it is probably overkill since these guys work mostly on aviation oil coolers - but come highly recommended in the Porsche community (they also do great work on oil tanks). It is all part of their base/fixed cost for their service. the only additional costs will be for repairs if any are needed.

yup - they did my oil tank

- I was just curious -- all the foundry talk recently has aroused my curiosity about all this stuff...

They did very nice work on my tank and cooler. Admittedly, my cooler was in pretty good shape going in. Very happy with Pacific's service

After pics...

it's a shame to put those on the car where they'll be hidden and get dirty

Now that my MFI Pump has been shipped off to Mark, I have turned my attention to my MFI throttle bodies and stacks. I have been speaking with Aaron Burnham at Burnham Performance. Here are the plans:
- completely rebuild the throttle bodies, which will include new bushings, throttle plates, rods and rod ends.
- bore the throttle bodies to open up the exits from 28mm to 36mm to match what I plan to do with the heads.
- taper bore the stacks to open them up to S specs.

Mark is setting up my pump to match these changes.

Here is a look at my throttle bodies before they are sent off. Just a little bit of carbon build up!

I thought I would give a quick update and share another crappy photo as I will be too busy to do any work on the car for at least a couple weeks. I finally finished drilling out the spot welds holding the rear of the parcel shelf. That sucked. There are essentially two rows of spot welds - one along the body section that is between the lower window and upper decklid - and the other row is along a flange called the parcel shel support bracket (I know this because I need to order one!) You can see the numerous spot welds if you look closely at the photo. You will also see the support bracket/flange is in bad shape with corrosion. I couldn't tell the condition of this part until I removed the shelf. I drilled right thru it in several areas due to it being thin and corroded. So I need yet another sheet metal part from Restoration Design and another part to remove from the car - ugh.

I am placing what I hope to be my final order of sheet metal parts. The suspension pan came yesterday. It almost looks like I can build a whole car with all these parts!

Travelling thru Europe my wife and I had to stop at the Porsche museum. Awesome experience. Started with having coffee there when we arrived and you can see into their restoration/service shop thru glass walls. Several beauties in there, but the '73 RS caught most of my attention



Here are some photos of the museum content. I was inspired by the '72 2.5 ST - looking forward to having my own '72 2.5!




More inspiration came from the use of fiberglass on various parts of the motor trim on the race variants. I will be replacing my standard steel motor trim and standard shroud with parts replicating the authentic fiberglass twill weave made by Sheridan Motorsports.




Here are some other photos of Porsche history

I love that museum. I've visited twice in the past few years, once with my wife on vacation and once again while on business. My wife has a few good photos of me laying on the floor with my head under the vintage racers.

For whatever reason she didn't share my excitement over vintage racing suspension linkages. Strange.

Haha - right, that place is great. We spent time in several places in Europe, but another highlight was cruising at 210 km/h on the autobahn. I needed to rent a faster car to stay in the fast lane though!
Oh and we saw a beautiful conda green longhood cruising thru Heidelberg - cool to see these cars in their native habitat.
