About the #project924 blog

Tinkering with a 1986 modern sports classic that may lead to an adequate performance no track.

That’s the gist of what this is about, but how did it come about?

The car, I bought a tatty, non-running Porsche 924S. It was an impulse buy, although a model I’d been considering for a while. Partly I wanted something to work on and restore, hence the non-runner. I also wanted something with track potential, that with my limited skills, I would not have to worry about. There were other factors but they’ll be explained in more detail.

The blog itself also came about due to a number of factors. For a couple years I have been posting on the Z4-Forum and found I like documenting and writing about my work on the car almost as much as I do working on the car itself. I have also posted a few videos on YouTube which I enjoyed doing and, as with the forum, was both surprised and pleased how much others got from them. I liked sharing but I wouldn’t have ever considered blogging were it not for friends on Twitter – some of whom were among the “other factors” in the car purchase – whose own blogs I’ve enjoyed and introduced me to the medium. Am a bit of a geek too so the outcome was inevitable.

Rather unexpectedly this has found an audience, I hope you enjoy the blog.

    • Excellent work Tony, looks like you’ve put a lot of work in there. Can’t see mine will be that clean, well, that’s what I keep telling myself!

      I’ll pop a link to your FB page on my links page too.

  2. Hi, I am about to replace the pipes from the power steering fluid reservoir to the pump and back. Did you use any special tubing, apart from it being oil resistant?
    Thanks

    • My setup is a custom one, to run the steering as a non-power assisted rack. If you have the original setup you will probably need the original hoses to get the right connections at the rack end. Under a reasonable amount of pressure with constant fluid circulation if you use non-standard hoses they will need to be a very good fit.
