That chassis looks totally sick. It'll be a blast on the track when it's done.

And I'm taking notes. I'd like to do a super next time around if I can't find a good T3.

Thanks!

I've always thought that GL Type IIIs' are to GL Supers', what a Mercedes Benz E55 is to a Porsche 911.

I've never owned a Type III, but I still think Supers are where it's at! :agree:

I've always wanted a Squareback. Heck, I might even do a Bus. But surveying the aftermarket, I'll probably end up with a Super. T2's & T3's are just so much more expensive in every way. And down here, they're so hard to find in good shape. Plus I get envious reading all of the Super threads!

Thats good way of putting it Yeti... I usually tell people that I consider
GL T3's more like a BMW M3 vs Supers being like 911's.

Exactly. There's Soprt touring cars, and then there's sports cars.

Couple of pictures of the Kerscher dash. Not done with it yet. Gotta get a 911 clock, and paint it, or gel-coat it.

I started doing actual bodywork today. Made a patch piece out of a section I got from jhelgesen. I cut the rusted section out months ago to make it easier to remove the wiring harness. I left the fold on the underside of the drip rail intact, so the patch will be inside the fold. I haven't stitched it into place yet 'cause I have to make some patches for the inside, lower rear window corners.

The other side will be easier 'cause I don't have to cut the outer window corners, just the inside.

Most 1303 supers are terible about rust in that area. I've seen a few that were a lot worse than that. The patch looks good to me.

I can only assume the reason is because of a different type of foam. The patch came from a section of an earlier model, and the foam was pliable.

My '73 has foam that's kinda like 'Great Stuff'. It's not flexible.

Yes, I saw that... I figured your car had much more extensive damage than mine as it looked like you had replaced the whole base of the pillar, not just sections of it like I'm doing.

BTW, excellent bodywork Wiebrand. :agree:
