      Replacement Stickers from the one and only, Pukar.







      Tossed on the carbon airbox to test fit things! Looks absolutely stunning imo


      Tossed the wiper linkage back in, new bushings, grease and fresh wiper motor. Fun fact, you order the replacement PN:61611373385
      It now has added casing/wings on the motor that interferes with the factory wiper linkage.. Checked and verified the right PN was sent to me and it was.. Plug was fine everything bolted up after removing the excess metal, see below.




      Next up is new foam for HVAC air blender doors and blower motor. Waiting for UPS as we're snowed in up in Seattle currently

        Adding some interior goodies and cleaning out the old Booster tank. UV lights and 50 volume Peroxide seems to be SOP for retrobrighting old yellowed plastics.




        New Vapor Barriers for the doors. Traced out the old versions (Glad I saved them)





        New Firewall Insulation and heatshield






        Center console back in and time to toss in these Recaro Orthopeds




        New front & original rear glass going back in!

          I don't reply to these build threads as often as I'd like because I can't keep coming up with new ways to say how incredible it looks.

          I really love these threads though and look forward to the updates. I appreciate the effort put into posting, it's a big part of what keep this place interesting.

          Same goes for the threads by Konig J4JO BMG mlytle MagnusKK ...I'm sure I'm forgetting someone.

            Thanks Mick! I always love watching/reading big build threads as well. Facebook is great for some things but chronological posts make so much more sense.

              Can’t tell you how many times I have gone back to reference my old posts for stuff I’ve forgotten, haha.

                Exactly! Forum style build threads like this are the perfect presentation. Interesting, entertaining, and provide an enduring reference for others to use.

                      They are all electric, heated/cooled so will end up running them each off of their own relay. Heater flap's I'll grab the PN but the same width thin foam I'm using is also used behind the rear side window trim pieces.

                              After finding the jack on the cherry-picker decided to shit out half-way through the lift while the motor was OVER the fender... pulled away, refilled it with fresh oil. (all was perfectly fine after)


                              Success!
