    I didn’t mention this All German Motorsports jack because it uses Dewalt or Milwaukee battery….but I think you guys may want to carry a battery impact driver for axle nuts and tire changes anyways… Surely it has a wrench drive on it for when the battery is dead? The older version did.

    The class 11 tool kit has a snap-on driver but I don’t think the battery is the same.

    I’m just curious where we will charge these things. Don’t think you’d be able to get enough charge off the car. I guess when you’re at hotels… but that’s not every night. We will have a 8 day camping section when going through Mongolia. Also, lots of different electrical systems across all those countries. Needing different plugs and systems using different voltage. I think the more manual the better. But maybe having a impact and charging when possible might be fine

    Left off with plans for the front skid plate. Trying to replicate factory race cars.

    Fabricated front upper attachment points today. Used 1.250” x .120” tube to brace to the strut tower. Then a 1/2” bolt up front. I should be able to get a flat piece through the hood gap to mount the skid plate and tube.

    Love those old pics! So cool seeing all the well documented old races.

    a guy who raced in a 912 last Peking to Paris said they went through 6 tires in 2 days in Mongolia… hopefully we can figure out better tires than them hahaha

    I started the day with repairing sheet metal around the forward control arm mounts, along with adding some small gussets to the sides. Then worked on the front skid plate mounting/bracing 1.250” tubes. Made sure the gas tank goes in/out. Fit and ready to weld tomorrow.D9B8881A-7C3D-4F83-96E4-4848144DE91D002B911B-73B1-4E16-9549-769EF4C13BDA218AE9FF-E16E-4085-9597-9AA8661310FC65AD41F6-2D8F-4568-8603-4FE72FFCFAAF5E78604A-6063-4D23-B798-8697253E2222AC4751E5-FB78-4C6E-A27E-C0A90103635E34E902D2-EA46-4EDF-8E1D-3D7235F0DBB1

    Hell yeah. We’re going make you guys successful.

    The front skid plate is made for some “Point & shoot” style driving 🙂 I don’t like adding extra weight, but I felt like this bracing was important.

    Finished welding tubes under the hood, and the last of control arm sheet metal patches.

    Yep! Another pair of junctions welded. Rear of the front control arm mounts/longitudinals and center tunnel tubes. Happy with the results.

    I can only imagine what kind of hell that was, welding in a small hole like that!

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