Great observations, and thanks for the information
I have had my 1969 E type since 1981- when I was 17
It has been my daily driver at times, and has suffered all sorts of abuses over the past 37 years, but I kept it.
We have had several adventures together, and now, I want to make it right
I am planning on back-dating it to look like a 1965 car, as period correct as a race/street car as possible.
I'm planning to run a few SCCA vintage races (I'm not looking to be competitive, just have some fun)
I race an E Production Porsche 944s in the Florida region- Sebring, Daytona, Palm Beach, Homestead
and also do some Chump car in a Miata (www.cincodemayhemracing.com
Several years ago I exchanged the uprights to run big sedan brakes, which I plan to use for the project
I am rebuilding the body (It is striped, disassembled and in process)
and sub assemblies, (suspension, steering column, dash, etc) simultaneously
I work on a sub assembly or do homework when I have an hour or two, and work on the body when I have a day to spend!
I think this forum will be extremely valuable to me
