Beautiful color. Similar to what I have on my 911 (slate grey; although yours looks like meteor metallic). That engine bay is looking pretty sweet too. This car will rival Just Peachy for a quality conversion build.

Started reinstalling radiator, intercooler, intake and plumbing. The goal is to get to point all the fluids are in and then get my buddy over to help me with the wiring. The list of things to do is over whelming, but exciting to be on the assyembly side.

Awesome thread! Will be watching very closely! Learning a ton! Missing the shoe humor! For the final reveal it has to be oxfords not brogues...

I filled the engine with oil along with oil cooler / lines. Filled radiator / engine with water & coolant, only had one drip from coolant line and after a couple turns on clamp, all is good. I have everything hooked up and even installed the headlights, just need help with the hybrid connections between LS and Porsche wiring, which should happen later this week.

In in the meantime, I installed the dash and pod, so I could connect the major electrical items to test when I get the system hooked up. The dash came out nice, but the leather is to thick where it wraps into the pod switches. Some of the push switches get stuck, so I am going to have to razor blade some of the leather, not a job I really want to do.

Installed passenger door handle and door lock actuator. I wanted to install the drivers side as well, but can’t find the handle hardware spent hours looking for it and gave up. Will see if 928 int’l has one in the morning. Also started installing door seals and hatch.

The doors take a HUGE amount of time, everything in them is a bit fiddly. Looking good!

I am finding everything takes a lot of time. I seem to ignore the Porsche manuals and the detailed thread information and put things back together out of sequence so instead of doing something once, I like to do it twice. Probably going to try the dreaded window seals next

The body section of the WSM is pretty selectively sparse on details. I have been re-assembling door guts on an '89 for the past couple of weekends, holler if you need/want input on anything.

Thanks Rob, appreciate the offer

The passenger door hardware went together well and the door fitment is perfect. I just need to figure out the wiring for the new latch actuators and remote, along with the new sport mirrors. That will have to wait until I get the car powered up.

The issue is the recess area of the holes. The switch ***** are rubber and would not be able to be cut down. The leather being cut will not be seen, because the **** covers it. Cutting the leather in a tight confinement needs to be surgical and I have limited movement with right wrist, so will look to get some help.
