Posted by PATRICK MOTORSPORTS on

We have finished all the metal work & most of the body fitment on our fixture table, now it's going on the rotisserie for inner fender detailing & belly pan metal work
Here the 914-6 GT rear quarter flare has been hand fitted with hammer & dolly to mate up to the chassis prior to being cut off with the original flare. this will allow us to "butt" weld the GT flare back on the the quarter and metal finish it!
Body, Brakes, and Suspension:
Steel GT style flares, lightweight composite front valance, front bumper, rear bumper, rockers, and aluminum tail light housing all installed with unparalleled craftsmanship.
Pedal assembly completely restored with bronze bushing set & 19mm Master cylinder, with large AP Dual feed fluid reservoir.
RSR front struts with raised spindles, 911 hubs, new bearings & seals, drilled rotors, steel 911 SC calipers (more reliable than "S" alloy caliper without the flexing issues)
21mm torsion bars, billet upper strut mounts with spherical bearings, 911 steering rack, 930 steering arms with fully adjustable (stackable) tie rod ends.
Steering column is a late 911 dual bearing style, modified by PMS for 914 use with quick release hub.

Adjustable sport shocks with fully adjustable spring collar set & perch kit, Eibach springs, new rear wheel bearings, drilled rotors & 911 steel calipers with parking brake.
