Its a "fairly" heavily modified track/street toy. I've been sorta restoring it for a few years and use it at local track days. Car is about 370HP, cage, and other misc upgrades.

I really should take more pics of it.






Awesome! I love 944s. And 928s. And 914s. And 924s. And all those other Porsches that get crap from the snobs.

Achieved some major milestones in the garage this week

Cranked up the welder for the first time to weld up some swivel casters on the parts washer to make them fixed. Wanted the rear ones locked to make it more stable.

Added 20 gal. of solvent to the parts washer to get it cranked up. Works great for an old machine.

Fired up the the blast cabinet using glass beads as the media to clean up some ancient tools just to see how it worked.

Flattened out a section of grate that had assumed a curve in it due to being used in a former BBQ cooker. It will be used to form the top of a welding table. Used the TIG welder to close up the corners. Was able to use a little more finesse this time around now that I'm getting a little more experience with the torch. This was the first time I've used a TIG machine since the mid-70's and this one has some bells and whistles that I need to familiarize myself with.





Hung up a chain fall for some light lifting right now. Will beef up the truss floor joists with support jacks later when the need arises. At first glance you may say, "So what?" The milestone for me was using the stick welding capabilities of the Syncrowave 200 for the first time. I used it to weld the two pieces of angle iron together to make the support bracket for the fall. Proud to say I didn't stick a rod like I used to back in "the day." This also gives me the confidence I needed to know that I can weld up the frame for the welding table, and for me this was huge.



Also brought in the first bike for a thorough going over. Will get started on it a little later in the week.



We be a happy camper!!

Do I see the chain fall bolted to the bottom of the floor joists? Wouldn't some flanges that allow you to bolt THROUGH the joists be better? Don't want to be pulling the bolts out under load.

Those lag bolts protrude through the roof...............

Seriously, there are a total of 8 lag bolts at present, but, all of that is going to be eventually redone with "U" shaped brackets that straddle the original 2 x 10's, but also the additional ones I am going to sister in that overlap the lower joist butt joints in the center of the ceiling. That chain fall is really overkill for anything I'll probably ever hoist in there. I put in place right now because I wanted it to lift the tub of the parts washer to change out a drain filter - AKA a sock. I thought I could access it through the top, but couldn't. It was driving me nuts that I didn't do it when I had the chance. I'm anal like that.

Besides, I was really anxious to test myself using the stick welder and all I had were a couple of lengths of 2" angle to play with.

Ordered a s/l of 2x2x3/16" angle iron today to use for the frame of the welding table. Pick it up Thursday. Me thinks we'll be burnin' some rods up this w/e.
