Engine and gearbox are reunited. It took some doing as I had to align the two exactly to get it to slide together. Clutch fork fitted as well. I used the Porsche manual instructions and had no issues

Wow! Forgive my ignorance, could you clarify the major steps done from bare metal to these pics? How many coats of prime, paint, clear? Color sand at what stage? So, no buffing yet? Congrats!

Sorry, but I don't have much detail. A fellow Rennlister selected this painter for me and I just accept the result. I do know that it's Glasurit, primed not bare metal and that finish is 'gun'. No buffing or colour sanding will be done. The original intention was a light refurb for daily driver use. I've over achieved judging by this result. It will be hard taking it to the track.

Getting the smaller jobs done now while I wait on the body. The breather hose is a notorious leak spot. My mechanic suggested I use gasket cement at the clamping point to make it less likely to leak.

Why? The engine is out. Replace the whole sound pad.

I've done that as well. When the engine was rebuilt two years ago the old one was too far gone and taken out. I told them not to bother replacing it. Now I'm sorting that out

Rear RUF Bilsteins refurbished. A fellow Rennlister was surprised at the top cap construction. Thankfully I know they fit so no worries about compatibility. Bump stops replaced, valves done and oil changed.
