Here's another detail from a '70/4.......pardon the non-concours presentation but it is original.....this is on the engine sheetmetal, driver's side. Anyone know the significance of these markings?

Someone MUST know what these markings mean & which apply to which engine. I know there are many variations & know what mine were originally (long gone), but what were they?

By the way Paul - you need new cheesheads.

The photo in the first posted picture is mine. I think I put in on the forum a long time back for...I don't remember what. It is from my 72 1.7. I have kept it as stock as possible over the years. The relay to help the starter out on hot days (mounted on the left sidewall) is about the only thing that is not original to a 1.7 engine bay. Every vacuum hose even goes where it is supposed to!

Love the concours section. I don't get on here enough to see what's going on. Good stuff!

I refinished the bay and engine. 1972 1.7 in a 1973 car. The white intakes are the wrong color, but everything else is correct. The hangers for the air tubes are custom. Helps keep them off the engine.

Have to say that is a clean motor top. The white intake tubes, though not orig, are kinda nice. The air tubes are all wrong though. Not talking about the hangers, but the tube material - not correct. Nice, nevertheless!

I love the nostalgic vintage look of your engine bay Pat. For me, thats alot of what this hobby is about. I wish I could find those colored hoses somehere, I have looked everywhere. I am tempted to beach out the available gray fabric lines and try to dye them the right color.

I have found a high temp ceramic coating from Techline Coatings (titanium) that is a dead wringer for the stock gray high temp paint on the intake tubes, muffler and heat exchangers, and its more durable. You might look into it.

What is the issue with using new stainless screws, is it that big of a deduct?

Why not change the coil/bracket too?

Thanks for the tip on the Techline Coatings stuff - will try it when the motor comes out this fall.
Stainless screws are not orig. They make perfect sense, but will most likely get you a deduct in high-end competition. The ugly cad plated "cheesheads" are orig.
Umm, my coil bracket is original!


Gents, couple questions concerning coatings. I spoke with George at AA about the same subject coatings. Concerning the intakes he told me to get his Wurth brand Zinc coating spray. He says it has enough zinc in it to give the proper powdery look and feel. He also said coatings like Windsor does not have the correct amount of zinc to come out correctly.

Pat with your knowledge I was hoping you could relay some advice:
1. Is what George said correct, and remembering your car in its original state how should it be? Have you tried the Techline stuff yet?
2. The tear drop fuel injector holders, were those originally cad plated?

Jason, the tear drop FI clamps are a silver cadium plate originally. The new ones from Porsche come in a yellow cadium color.

Here are 2 powder coats that seem very close. I would suggest a sample done to see if it matches.
1. http://www.retrocycle.com/foleyinteriorcoatings.php scroll down to the Smooth Matte section and try color 7040
2. http://www.orbittx.com/ral.html scroll down, center column, RAL 7000 Squirrel Grey This color matches close to the set of runners I just stripped the top coating off of. Abit more on the darker side than the pair that I posted a shot on.

I'm sending my set off for power blasting. I'm probally use the Wurth zinc like George suggested. Have to do a test sample to see.

Original finish low milage car.
