Truth:  this thread is one of the ones that convinced me to buy another 944.  Now I'm hoping Dean really wants to buy it stil. as I don't have the space for this many cars.

Never thought I could be an influencer.  LOL  

I just wish today had been warmer and with no snow.  I need to sand and put another coat of primer on the front bumper but can't do that with the temperatures below freezing.  

Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe.  Keep working on the projects.

Well I finally had a nice day, with temperatures well above freezing and sun.  It was great, I couldn't pass up the chance to get the front bumper painted.  Next steps are to out the lights back in and mount it up.  Then I'll take pictures of the car all back in black.

And the car is back together.  Both bumpers on.  Signal lights work.  We are good to go.

After trolling around the 924 forums for a while ibwas finally able to find an HVAC faceplate that was legible.  I never really knew where to place the controls over the past years I've owned the car.  One of the forum members close to me sent one over.  Not a huge thing to replace, but every bit helps the car look better.  

Now off to work on the 944.  1 headlight to fix and a patch panel to make.

Winter is setting in and I have the 924 here in my garage.  I have been focused on the 944 alot over the summer to get it running and I need a break from that.  So I have time, the pandemic has given me more than my share of free time, and I finally decided to work on the 924 because it seems to have an over fueling problem when driven on the track.  So I am starting with the injectors.  Took an hour and removed them from the car and put them in some carb cleaner. 

When the spring hits I will take it out and run a compression test and leakdown to make sure the internals of the engine are good.

So after a couple days in the cleaner I took the injectors out and dried them off.  Lots of dirt in the cleaner, so I will take that as a good sign.  This weekend I will take them to my dads garage where he has an electro cleaning tool that we can put the injectors in for a couple of hours and then I will re-install. 

So what do I do with the old carb cleaner?  I can't just dump it down the sink or on the street.  People may not like that. I also don't want to dump it in a gast tank.  I do have old oil saved up, maybe I can dump it in there?

I finally got out to my dad's house where he has a Branson electric parts cleaner.  

I dumped my injectors and the top bolts inside it and let them clean for 3 hours.  When we took them out and ran air through the injectors there was a nice dispersion of cleaning fluid that came out.  And the injectors looked really clean.

We decided it was also a good idea to use new rubber o-rings and copper washers when I put it all back together.  

Today I put it all back together with a bit of oil on the o-rings for easier installation.  

In all it took about an hour or so.  1 injector didn't want to seat properly and leaked when I first started the car, but I went over it again and gave it an extra push to get it in its home ran the car to temp without leaks.  

Next is to make a cold air pipe that will run from the air cleaner to under the bumper.
