      Nah. You only have to be distracted for a month or so, and you miss 2 or 3 additions or subtractions. The worst bit is that WAY has become a bit self-conscious, and won't give us a regular stocktake

      Well from what I can tell the link didn't work so I'll post them via PICASA to here.

      Some more images of the work undertaken so far.

      The pedal box, and Momo Prototipo wheel with quick release mount custom made by Michael at Promotive.



      The custom adjustable Tilton Pedal box and custom made backing plate. The pedal box is adjustable in reach with two positions, mine and the stock position further forward if someone taller wants a drive.



      Another shot of the Rennshift performance shifter and powder coating work.



      Rollbar reconfigured to match angle of B pillar and powder coated the same as the IROC cars were & shift linkage panel cover powder coated. All Interior trimming by F&H Motor Trimmers using Porsche Silverknit carpet in RS style



      Some of the trimming work by F&H showing the seat belt covers he custom made and covered in leather



      Interior Overview



      New master cylinders mounted to powder coated blower motor cover. Also powder coated strut tower brace, smugglers box cover and powder coated odyssey battery mount.



      Close up of master cylinders and beautiful new braided lines. All lines were changed out for braided.



      More close ups of the master cylinder work. The clutch was changed from cable operated to hydraulically operated as well.



      Odyssey battery mount powder coated.



      The beautifully refurbished wheels from Melbourne Classic Road and Track



      Engine bay clean up and a few tweaks to the engine by Promotive ;-)



      Great shot of the arse end.



      Arty shot



      Here you can see how the rollbar runs in line with the B pillar as the original IROC cars did.



      Denny Hulme's 74 911 RSR IROC (International Race of Champions) It was a racing series in the off season to F1, Indycar, Nascar and Can Am Sports car racing that Roger Penske started using equal 911 IROC's for the first two seasons before they changed to Camaro's. Drivers included Denny Hulme, Emmerson Fittipaldi, Bobby Allison, Mark Donohue and many others.

      We are trying to emulate this car in performance and look when my car is finished, though without the sponsor logos.



      Current exterior shot of my car. If you compare it to the previous Denny Hulme IROC image you will see I need to replace the front and rear bumpers with the light weight non impact ones and I will use the whale tail for track days and keep the duck tail for the street. We will have a quick release system for the deck lids so they are easy to change out.

      Originally the first 12 cars came from the factory to Penske with the ducktail but they found it had too little downforce so changed to the whale tail.

      I will also have the car completely resprayed in the current original Arrow blue and get rid of the rocker sills as well as replace the Carrera decal with Porsche decal.

      Before that we will be replacing the brake rotors and callipers and sending the shocks out to Murray Coote for a tickle as well as adding a through the body sway bar and changing the torsion bars for something more suitable.

      Finally we'll drop the engine and trans and give them a good performance upgrade and replace the complete wiring loom with one of Michaels custom light weight looms he makes.



      More to come as things progress, there is a full gallery of the latest images available on my Picasa feed HERE

      Cheers Al

      Can't believe the poor attention to detail from Al. He made no mention at all of matching the wing mirror on the Hulme car.

      LOL, you mean these that I have in a box waiting to go on?



      It's actually quite the job to mount them on the doors, yes I've researched that as well

      You have to remove the other ones, weld up the holes then mount the new ones but the mirrors aren't placed in the same place on both sides of the car, the drivers side is further forward than the passenger mirror by about the full length of the mounting plate.

      If I was going to be 100% true to the original they only had the flag mirror on the drivers side as well.


      Here are the original 12 cars waiting to leave the factory to go to Penske



      and arriving in SoCal and on the way to his workshops



      I actually have a folder for each of the original cars detailing VIN, Engine number and any photos of the car. some of them were totally destroyed by new owners turning them into slant nose cars and the like who had no idea what they had.

      Oh here is how much they sold for just after the series changed to Camaro's, to buy a real one at auction now would be in excess of a million.

      Thanks Robbo, we had a good run, got all our trophy times and our Plate with only one small spin and an aquaplane into a mud bank on the last stage of day 3 with no damage to the car.

      The trophy times were really easy to get and didn't seem to get harder as the event went on like Targa does.

      Weather was shocking, just like it was on day one Targa 2010 but for three of the four days. Unfortunately we lost one guy who hit a tree and rolled three times

      Will you be at High Country in November? I arrive in Melbourne on the 4th of November for a week or recce before the rally from the 9th to 11th. Stayin in Merrijig until the Friday then up at the Mt Buller Chalet. Would be good to catch up and have a couple of drinks at the after party.

      Have you seen the info on the Fiesta R2 and R1 cars being built by Msport in the UK for Rsport here? 50k for a car and the kit built and ready to rally for the R2 car and even cheaper for the R1. The R2 come with a Sadev sequential box and in gravel or tarmac spec and will have all parts and servicing here if needed for the sequential box.

      Haha this is Australia, not the UK! We need air con here! Regarding the rear, this car is being sold with a warranty by Porsche's flagship store (and HQ) in Australia, so I'm sure they would have made sure that it is factory spec.
