    Great thread, and great timing as the snow is starting to fly and my ADHD is in overdrive ... Hereís the body and paint work we kicked off last month on our 1968 Porsche 911L, aka ďChesterĒ (as in Chester Cheetoh). I bought it from my uncle in 1992 who was the second owner when he bought it in 1972. I rebuilt the engine, tranny, gearbox and redid all the electrical & gauges over the last 4 years, and Iím finally getting to the exterior this winter.

    Here are a few pics of initial teardown and clean up ...

    Very cool project. Nice to keep a classic like that in the family so long too. Keep posting updates.

    Thanks, as you know restoration is a LOOOONG and detailed process.... As nerdy as it sounds, Iíve spent the last few months finally compiling 51+ yearís worth of receipts and pictures to fully document literally everything thatís been done to this car since it came off the assembly line in Germany 1968. Thankfully, my uncle was a meticulous record keeper so I have receipts for everything for the 20 years under his ownership, all the way down to replacement bulbs for the interior lights from 1975! As an all-original and numbers-matching car, having complete documentation is crucial, and last week I finally compiled everything into a binder for every single receipt and work order. Hereís what Iím working on this morning to wrap up all the documentation to tidy up the full history on this little beast .

    Wow, that is an awesome car and project. Been a huge Porsche fan my entire life and especially the long hoods. Still hoping to get one, one day.

    That's impressive he's kept up with all the records for that many years. That would make for one fun binder to flip through to look at it all and see the full history of the car.

    Speaking of winter projects, does anyone know if Wakemakers generally does a big cyber Monday sale on their bag buster ballast upgrades? If so how much do they generally discount?

    Yes, they run a sale for multiple days. I think bags and fitting were 25% off and free shipping over $99 orders.

    Not sure props are discounted.

    Other selected items also have discounts. I recall a mission Wake shaper this was 50% off.

    I do not think anything has been announced yet. They usually do a good job keeping people informed if you are in he mailing list.

    Made a little more progress on tear down. Originally was not planning on going this far but might as well do it right and start from the ground up.

    Funny, I started my f100 project while boatless and waiting on my 2018 build. Winter 1 was rust repair and get it running and driving. Winter two was DJM dream beams, swap to '77 front (disc) brakes and rear end (wider stance and better highway gear), and update top end of original 360 (cam, lifters, pushrod, rockers, intake, carb, timing set), and some other cleanup. I drive it a few times a week now!
