At one point I was regretting not just slapping more Bondo on there and calling it done. Now, I'm glad I did it; for the learning and development of skills. My biggest problem now is the the old re-spray that it had is not the original color anymore. It had faded and yellowed. Now I need to paint from the doors forward for a good color match.

Weld. Lots of spot welds across the seams.



Bare metal primer and spots of filler.



Prime and sand.



Paint.

Looks good. FYI, these butt weld clamps come in handy for joining two pieces together with a butt weld and they're dirt cheap at Harbor Freight. https://www.harborfreight.com/butt-welding-clamps-8-pc-60545.html?cid=paid_google|||60545&utm_source=goog le&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=&utm_content=&gclid =CjwKCAjw_-D3BRBIEiwAjVMy7PHEKdqhNP9q3eMJs-6Triql6ylnMDMI6--3hQAhzAYN8yp1AyhMXBoCB0kQAvD_BwE

Those clamps look very useful and super inexpensive. I may have use for them again soon:

I couldn't help but pick up another project.

I can totally understand that emergency.

Why is it that like every 914 is either dilapidated or AMAZING. I mean I haven't seen like a daily driver 914; maybe I'm too young.

Rick, I'm going to have to check out your 914 next time I get out there. I've got the pair of them home now and it looks like the black one is solid enough to rebuild. I joined 914World.com and I'm going through the PelicanParts forum; Lots of stuff to learn. It doesn't belong here at the 986Forum, so I've started a thread on GRM under my name AAZCD: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/build-projects-and-project-cars/learning-about-porsche-914s/174425/page1/#post3045604

The 914s as purchased:


Now, back to the Boxsters. THIS is sold and awaiting pick-up in a couple weeks. THAT has a few things that I still want to fix up before putting it for sale. I ended up doing almost a complete paint job in my garage to fix the old paint. Everything, but the clamshell and trunk lid. It was a 'quick and dirty' respray, but it's a big improvement over how it was. Pics later when I get the whole car ready.
