Here is a link to a couple of pics I posted a few weeks back. Get the hardtop if you think you want/need one. In less than five minutes your back to the original soft or no top look.

A Repair, Mod, and a Hardtop

Where are you getting the top?
There's a website making them new for $1050 + paint.

I am getting it from one of the places here in the UK that refurbishes them and paints them to match your car.

I have seen the new ones but was not sold on the style, unless you are referring to someone making a copy of the original?

Jcijoe - Great looking car, thanks!

Grizzly - thats just too cool, love the garáge too, whats the project in the lower left? I have a 3 month project that is still ongoing after 2 years

Rick3000 - those tops look really good but I think the shipping to the UK would negate the great price.

Noone986s,

Good eye. It's a '67 912. I have two of them in different states of disassembly, but they're both on hold for the forseeable future, because I just got started on this...



This is my first car. I drove it to high school and college. My Dad bought it for me 29 years ago.

Thanks for the compliment on the garage. Its remodel was something I was looking forward to showing off, but my never ending stream of hopeless projects keeps messing it up before I can take decent pictures. Here are a couple that were taken before it was really finished...

Good lord that is a cool set up. I have an old austin mini wedged in next to the boxster and would love a garage like that. The land to build it over here would be worth so much you would just build a house on it.

It's not the perfect set-up, but I'm certainly grateful for it. We were adding to an existing garage on a pretty tight lot, so the space I ended up with is long and narrow. I have to park the cars behind one another, so when I want to get something out, it can be quite a juggling act. Here's one more...



By the way, I love the old Minis. What cool cars. I've had a number of Brits, but never a Mini.

I have my hardtop hanging on the wall like Grizzly's.

Grizzly,

Tell me about your floor. Those tiles look huge. I just moved into a new house and have been toying with either painting the garage floor or going the tile route. I am also putting in a 4 post lift like you have so I can stack my toys on one side. I've got a 67 Mustang hidden away in a barn in Kansas waiting on a pro-touring restomod, but I've got too many other projects taking up my shop space. Is the stove for powdercoating? or pizza? I really like your light setup as well. I hadn't thought of doing track lights by the bench. Great idea.

nice setup - even have Vin on the flatscreen. Do you have a continuous running Fast & the Furious loop to keep you motivated in the garage?

The floor is 12 x 12 Racedeck tiles. I just put 4 together to make 24" squares. It's a pretty big space, so when I started to lay the floor out with the 12x12 look, it looked too busy. The garage has a front and a back. The front has a drain for washing cars, so I can't tile it. I'm going to do it in Epoxy. By the way, POR-15 just came out with a floor paint that is supposed to be great stuff. Plus, no crazy prep like you have to do with traditional epoxy; just sweep and paint. The stove is for powdercoating. If you're not set up to do it, call Eastwood right now and order the equipment. It's the best. We bought the little microwave to cook with after Hurricane Isabel killed our house. Now that everything is back in shape, it's for Hot Pockets. The lights started out as one of my typical style over substance moves, but honestly, they're great. You can swivel the heads to put light exactly where you want it.

Nah, just something I was watching. I put the TV all the way across the room so I don't end up sitting at the bench staring at it. It's great for football season, though, because I don't lose a whole day in the garage. The DVD is nice for playing the discs I make when taking things apart...so i know how they go back together.

P.S. I really like Jeph's car.
