  1. Do you recommend Shell Rotella T6 5W-40 for an older engine like a 1976 2.7L?
  2. So what is recommended since most gas stations in Canada are 10% or higher of ethanol?
  3. Restoring a Porsche, what else?!

  4. Any other Western Canadian locations that are recommended to help restoration? Thanks.
  5. Thanks I'll pick up some lacquer thinner and painter's green tape to protect the car's paint. I'm not knowledgeable on how to remove all the trim pieces safely to do a better job. I'll give this a shot first and see how the results stack up.
  6. Thanks Tom. How about methyl hydrate? Or is lacquer thinner better?
  7. Been almost a year since I posted here and not much has happened. I did get my brother to help me roll the car out and wash it throughly and clay bar & wax it. He gave me an estimate of cost for what we need to to just get it safe to drive like new tires and brakes and shocks. The engine still needs a look at and the fuel drained and oil change and spark plugs. One question I had is about the battery. I have an original Porsche battery that was new back in the early 90's I had bought but is it worth reconditioning it or what ever the process is called? There is a good battery place that does this type of job if it's possible to do. If I need to buy a new one, does anyone know what the right model specs of the battery I need to buy if it's not an original Porsche battery? Is it a smart or ok idea to use other brand batteries on a 76 911?
  8. Here are some better pics, left and right side of the fuel door opening. The previous owner made some DIY cable pull when the original broke, would like to update both ends (or just the knob/handle) inside the car.
  9. Beautiful car but until I can afford one I'll have to stick with mine
  10. When I got the car the trim was originally chrome but then painted black to give the car a more current 1989 look which was the last year of this design. I would like to remove the black paint but don't know what is the best product to use and care instructions so I don't accidentally touch the car's paint. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  11. The original cover flap broke off but part of it stayed on the screws in the fender. How would I go about repairing this? Should I get a new/used complete flap cover or try to fix the original which includes welding, etc., which I'm not comfortable doing nor have the tools. Thanks guys. Here's a pic.
  12. I'll give it a shot. This seems the best shot I have. From what I know about the history of the car from the previous owner, is it's a 1976 911S with a Turbo body. California car brought over from Russia I believe, (he was Russian). Later I found out he passed away from criminal activity as told to me by the Wessiach Porsche shop up here when I last took the car in. So, it's got some history :)
