Last night I lifted the opener up 10 inches. It's not recommended to do that, but for the life of me cannot figure out why, works fine. So now the 928 is much further forward and away from the ceiling mounted heater. The arm on the door opener is less than an inch away from scraping the hood as it opens.

Net yet.....still trying to get all the current vehicles inside for winter. My Yukon will still be outside. I need to sell like 3 cars. I'm working on the math of putting another 4-post in my 2nd garage. Only a 9' (108") ceilings, but 928's are only 50.5" high LOL.....gonna be tight.

Just need to swap a couple of your cars for a Ford GT. They're only 43" high. Or if you need the extra clearance, a Caterham at 31.5".

There is about 13" to go before the 928 hits the ceiling.








Have been trying to figure this one out.
Looking like I'll have to raise my ceiling 10"
and convert the garage door to manual lift operation. For the double stack

Hack/Eric... Nice collection! I've got to get across the lake next summer and catch up with you at Road America!

It's better to stack em deep than sell em cheap! You have seven extra inches in there so no vaseline or shoehorns are necessary!

Enjoy!

This is what happens when they think it's a good idea to push the door harness into the door cavity (vapor barrier? we don't need no stinkin' vapor barrier!) and under the window lifter motor.


Dave,

Here is a product that may help you in situations like this:

They are "Heat Gun" activated solder connectors... Just got them and have not tried them yet but they look pretty cool!




Available through Amazon of course...

Which, at this point usually means: cheap-as-possible $hi+ from China. Iím at the point, now, where I try to not use Amazon. Their tailored/personalized search results are about as bad now as Google. In fact Google search will actually find stuff Iím looking for on Amazon, while Amazonís search - using the same words - does not.

Iíve been using these for 20 years:


One or two busted wires in a harness? Fine, use butt splices. When youíve got 5 or 10 and maybe more? A big ball of 20 butt splices for a door harness is a) going to be tough to do b) in that location may prevent door panel installation and c) is just plain wrong as long as harnesses are available.

This is the way you fix that problem:

Dave, Just when I think I've found something cool; Pop goes my bubble ;-). You have a far better solution for repairing the cut harnesses! I had no idea that the door harnesses were available. Thanks!

Hmmmmmmm, The same car... I noticed a cool anomaly with the pictures...

In the Geneva Show Car at the show, the headrests are Pasha.

In the Geneva car in the snow, the headrests are not Pasha but white?

Help Mr. Wizard!







Many other details are correct: Looks like the Recaro C seats with white headrests went in after the show, clear glass, red paint, no passenger mirror, correct license plate (with 73 visible), even the hood appears to have the dent from Ferry's butt on it!

Interesting!
