I think a VW SC would be great for this rally. At least as a chase truck. 🙂

That is the most insane part of the rally. No outside support!
They allow you to send supplies to locations for repairs ahead of time…. And have “sweep mechanics” to help get cars repaired and to safe location, but other than that, Cole and Kevin are on their own.
I want to meet you guys in Paris…but worried you won’t make it 🙂Baja MarkParticipantJuly 10, 2020 at 5:01 pmPost count: 450
Wow, that sounds insane and literally the trip of a lifetime!!! Looking forward to following along. Would love to do something like this with my Dad.ColeBModeratorJuly 24, 2020 at 1:22 pmPost count: 2040

cute dog !
I just missed your arrival but maybe catch ya before you leavealykatParticipantJuly 25, 2020 at 6:59 amPost count: 569
Found a picture of my old 912. I bought it as a roll over total and took a bit over a year to get it back in shape. I’d love to get my hands on another, but don’t think I’d be in any condition to do the race you’re headed for, though I do envy the opportunity. Hoping to get a chance to swing by the shop while the car is still there and check it out.Pat KKeymasterJuly 25, 2020 at 9:26 amPost count: 1736
Good as gold!!!
We will build it if it comes.Pat KKeymasterJuly 25, 2020 at 12:40 pmPost count: 1736
Motor and trans about to come out. Nico’s supervising.

KB found pretty much the nicest driest original car to turn into a racer.
Zero rust, and good body/paint should narrow the project scope some.
I’m feeling guilty for what we are about to do. This car was a good driver yesterday.😈🛠🔪RustabusParticipantJuly 26, 2020 at 10:22 amPost count: 2167
Fun!!! Fun!!! Fun!!! You don’t get to do this too often!!!!! Yeah!!!!😀😀😀ColeBModeratorJuly 26, 2020 at 9:25 pmPost count: 2040
We got to it today. Got the interior out. The 912 is in the dirty. Going to finish wire wheeling the rest of the sound deadener out tomorrow. On the way!WillyModeratorJuly 27, 2020 at 9:00 amPost count: 1255
So sick guys. I shared this with Cole the other day, but thought it could be a cool car to use for inspiration. 1971 911 ST originally used as a training car for the East African Safari. Love the flat black with the big meatball on the door.BBWBParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 10:47 amPost count: 915
This car needs some BFG’s or Grabbers. I may need to do a KCW trip to check this out.

I believe this car is only getting a mild lift, not fully rally 12”. Tire size will be limited. Cole mentioned some rally tires there looking at.
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterJuly 29, 2020 at 7:45 amPost count: 3988
The rules for the race are geared towards stock-ish modified cars. They don’t allow fancy shocks or coil-over conversion. No major body modifications, mean that we are limited on tires size. Pirelli makes a 195/70 gravel tire that fits the stock arches.
Cole and I have been reducing weight for days. All the interior had to go. New light weight Sparco seats will be installed and rear seat area will be used to haul tools, parts, and gear.
We wired-wheel cleaned out all of the factory sound deadner and seam sealer. The next step is to fit and paint a roll hoop.
We covered the car with weld paper to protect the paint during this portion of the build. Pat is patching two very small rust holes at the front of the pan this morning.volksaddictParticipantJuly 29, 2020 at 8:39 amPost count: 668
That is insane. I understand that a clean car is the cheapest to begin a project like this with but Damn.FranzKeymasterJuly 30, 2020 at 8:28 pmPost count: 3988
Cole and I bent up the main hoop today and test fit. We tried to move it as far back as possible to get more head room, along with good access to the rear storage area.
Then took it out to paint the top side that will be wedged against the original headliner.FranzKeymasterAugust 1, 2020 at 10:46 amPost count: 3988
Having fun today. Minimal distractions. I’m going to work as late as my mind and body will allow.
Template for 16 gauge plate to weld C pilar tube to the engine mount. Shaved pre-heat hose.
Cut through the rear seat belt shoulder mount to run the tube. The area is already reinforced for attaching tube to.
