More than just a few bolts!

You just undo a few bolts, someone told me… I wish it was that straightforward to drop the rear axle on the 924 S. Alas, being a transaxle it wasn’t quite that simple. Why would one want to drop the axle? To fit my shiny refurbed petrol tank, naturally. So, simple job then; drop the … Continue reading

“Petrol”-head No More

Or how to enjoy fume free driving… I have a slight problem with the 924 S and a smell of petrol in the cabin. I bought a spare fuel tank to swap out for the one in the car and hopefully fix the problem, both are detailed in ‘Great Balls of Fire‘ and ‘The fuel … Continue reading

The fuel tank conundrum!

A 924 tank is a 924 tank, right? Not quite. Not even close. It seems that trying to match the fuel tanks on a 924 is like trying to find a bone marrow donor. Correction, like a layperson trying to find a marrow donor! But why would you need a donor tank? Well, the tanks … Continue reading

#Project924 Day Out: Pentillie Festival of Speed

Of course I’ve heard of it… Well, actually no, I hadn’t.  When @MajorGav first mentioned the Pentillie Festival of Speed, some months ago, I had to go online to find out what and where it was. A festival of speed in Cornwall, not too far from my home town, something we’d never had in that … Continue reading

Scrape it. Shape it. Paint it.

Be careful what you bid for… It’s safe to say #Project924 isn’t in the best nick, something I realised pretty early on. With every   panel dented I accepted most were going to need to be filled. A couple however could be removed, the badge panel and the front bumper. Not only were these damaged but … Continue reading

Great Balls of Fire

Well, not yet, but if I don’t do something soon… Those of you that have been with me from the start will know that I have had some fuel tank problem… the one in the car was rusty and leaked. I bought a replacement and it was wrong. I had another tank from a 924 … Continue reading

Don’t start! Won’t start.

It happened for the second time today… For a while now the car has been running really well. Excepting that “really well” is a relative term. Once I got over the non-runner bump in this project the car has never failed to start. Apparently even when the garage were taking the fuel tank in and … Continue reading

GT Porsche 924S Fleet Car

From a weekend Twitter chat to print… A little while ago, about two months now, I mentioned to Stuart Gallagher that I was spending a Saturday working on #Project924. What’s that? He asked. I explained. Stuart thought it would make an interesting addition to the GT Porsche fleet. Was I interested? Hell yes! A little while later … Continue reading

924S Road Test Assessment

With the honeymoon period over, how I feel now… After 1,000 miles (without breakdown) I decided it would be appropriate to write a short review of #Project924, mostly so I have something to refer back to. So, just to recap, this is a 1986 model Porsche 924S with the detuned 150bhp 2.5l engine from the … Continue reading

Up to shenanigans!

When I should have been in the garage, I was out with the video camera… This was a day I had set aside for working in the garage. Alas it did not happen. Partly due to a lack of sleep and a late start. Mostly due to the fact that I have been wanting to … Continue reading
