Porsche 911 1968 restoration project summary Jan 2011.wmv
Still no bodyshell back from the paintshop (I'm chasing them every 2 weeks at present), so here I take stock of where I am and how much the project has cost me (and likely to cost overall). Building a 911 as a full 'make as new' restoration brings with it eye watering costs - and that's another reason why it's been fortunate I've taken 2 years so far and will probably take another year to complete.
On this clip I also talk about the fuel tank restoration. Run time here is just under 17 minutes.
Porsche 911 1968 rear suspension Part 2.wmv
Here is the second part of my full ride height reset on the 68 911. This is
a long trial and error job that can drive you mad! It's important to
understand how the suspension works and what the effect of any adjustment
can have. It's also important to control the variables - set the tyre
pressures and disconnect the shocks etc. After this there is still the
corner weighting and then camber and toe to be set. But that's another
Apologies for the crude editing. I'm doing this with Windows Live Movie
Maker and it's very basic compared to my previous editor.
Porsche 911 chain tensioner story
My 1968 engine came with sealed camshaft chain tensioners. These tensioners
were designed by Porsche engine expert Hans Mezger and introduced for the
1968 model year. Here's their interesting story.

1967 Porsche 911 Coupe | Restored By Classic Showcase
This Porsche has recently undergone a restoration by Classic Showcase to a
Show/Driver level. The Porsche 911 was disassembled, painted, color sanded
and buffed. All body parts painted separately off the car. This magnificent
early 911 Porsche has received a restoration by Classic Showcase to reveal
the original features and novelty of the vehicle. During the restoration
process, the Porsche was disassembled, each body part was fit to the car by
our body work specialists and each body part was separately painted off of
the car, color sanded and buffed to a fabulous luster. The original Fluch
Alloy wheels have been restored adding to the patina of this exceptional
car. Our specialty craftsman from our upholstery department custom fitted,
made and installed a complete new interior using the correct German
materials. Brite work was re-plated and new rubber seals, new deco rubber
and hardware was installed, as well as a new fuel pump. The instruments
were restored and Classic Showcase performed a full mechanical service
including re-building carburetors, major tune-up, valve adjustment, oil
change and much more. It has received a full detail inside and out,
including the undercarriage. This Porsche is a very nice original
California black plate car with DVD documentation of the restoration
process. It is very difficult to find these early short wheel base 911's,
especially in this condition. This is certainly for the discerning Porsche

This is part 1 (of 3) of the valvetrain build sequence, which includes the

the assembly of the S cams into the cylinder heads and prepping the rockers
or lifters for assembly.
911 68 gauges, trim & seats before restoration.wmv
Just a short clip to show the gauges, glovebox lid and all the interior
trim before it starts restoration. We've got a big job here, but notr as
big as the bodyshell has turned out to be.
The bodyshop is doing the work on my shell as and when they can fit it in
to their works schedule. This is because it has turned out to be a much
larger job than planned. When the body guy started looking at it, he found
just about every panel needed work. We're also replacing both door skins
and the left sill, besides much other major work. I'm hopeful I'll have
something to show you soon!
