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

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

A new hippo’s head!

I think I may have just fixed oil leak number 1! Of course I don’t know the total number of leaks, I just know what every now and then I find a little deposit of oil under the car. Sometimes not. It was something that I had been expecting when I bought the car, partly … Continue reading

Time peace

In life it seems to be the little things that bother me the most… There are longer term #Project924 objectives, sorting the bodywork, engine and interior, all of which will no doubt need a lot of attention, and I am happy to accept that these will take some time. The little niggles, things that I am sure … Continue reading

I can hear! I can see!

Why is it always the simple jobs that take the longest? The refurbed alternator was back in the car and charging beautifully, with commuting and a few joy rides, that week I passed the 100 mile [without breakdown] mark. I have been taking things gently as the car has been standing for 5 years and I feel needs the engine running in … Continue reading

Breakdown: stop the charge…

Having waited and waited some more I’d been delighted when I got the 924S back… For my first journey I took it work and then to buy some new tyres. Driving back to the office, post tyre fitting, I stopped in a queue at traffic lights and, as I pulled away, I noticed the battery light flicker. … Continue reading
