Making a New Shop

About thirty years ago I built a shop/garage at another house and made a huge mistake – eight foot walls.  Putting in a lift was impossible, so working on jack stands was the order of the day.

Door Handles…

Once the two connectors are loose, carefully manipulate the handle to remove it from the door.  This is best achieved by rotating the handle carefully DOWN so that the forward end of the handle is facing the ground, then carefully manipulating the inside mechanisms through the hole in the door skin.  Slowly remove the handle without using a lot of force.

Mission Creep

Those of us who work with Porsches know all about Mission Creep.  You start a repair, upgrade or other job and before you know it, you are attempting a lot more than you originally thought.  

944 Rescue Mission

A couple of weeks ago 924S944.com acquired a 1984 944 NA – they were all “NA” in ’84 – that was in okay shape, but needed some love.  We call these “rescue puppies.”  They are not parts cars, but they are not in good enough shape to go play with the other dogs…they need some help.
