It’s now VERY likely I’ll be able to turn the key for the first time since maybe October.
Got the J-Pipe reinstalled fully. Had a mishap where I ordered the stud on the right according to what it says in the PET (Porsche classic parts catalog), an M10x35mm stud.... It was too short. So an M10x52mm was a suitable replacement.
Steering rack and crossmember are reinstalled. Now, just the A-arms, starter motor and half of the exhaust are left to install. Unfortunately, my go-to hardware store where I can purchase fasteners and such individually and whatnot is temporarily closed because.......you know. I’m delayed to this weekend only because I had to order them online instead. I’ve no complaints, this project is damn near finished!
