    I think a VW SC would be great for this rally. At least as a chase truck. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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. 448A5A99A29A4A8A93BE212A48832C08

    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.

    Iโ€™m feeling ย guilty for what we are about to do. This car was a good driver yesterday.๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ› ๐Ÿ”ช

The 912 is in the dirty. Going to finish wire wheeling the rest of the sound deadener out tomorrow. On the way!

    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.

    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 12โ€. Tire size will be limited. Cole mentioned some rally tires there looking at.

    We will build it if it comes.

    The rules for the race are geared towards stock-ish modified cars. They donโ€™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.

    That is insane. I understand that a clean car is the cheapest to begin a project like this with but Damn.

    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.

    Having fun today. Minimal distractions. Iโ€™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.

    7B049254-1CD6-4CAE-BA63-D755365CFBC8

    Cut through the rear seat belt shoulder mount to run the tube. The area is already reinforced for attaching tube to.
