    Thanks to both of you for the info. It has 14Ē Fuchs on it which look too small to my eye. I have 16x7s on another 70ís hot rod 911 and like how they fill the wheel wells (my other car is extremely low, however).

    Iím considering a local set of 15x7 widened steelies until I decide if I want to track down some Mahles or most likely larger diameter Fuchs. Might go pick the steelies up this weekend. Car drives and shifts fine and has a brand new set of PMOs on it which Iíll need to get retuned for out here.

    Honestly, I knew the car had body/previous repair issues and that the paint was crap.. but for what I ended up paying I think Iím okay financially even knowing what will need to be done to make it right. Thereís also a couple boxes of unopened parts that I need to inventory.

    Again, thanks for the info. My next step is finding and hiring a decent mid-range 911 resto shop to get this tub stripped, repaired, and painted crystal blue without it costing six figures.

    Im a sucker for that color too.

    Id look for date coded matching set of Fuchs to make the car nice.

    I have a shop in Tarpon Springs Florida if you need body and paint. I have two celette benches and we are currently working on two 911s and two 356 porsches.

    I would cut you a special rate as i would love to paint it. I think it also deserves Glasruit paint to be honest to really represent the color.

    PM if interested.

    This will prove harder than buying the car. I wish you all the luck in the world. I've been here. Last car took 6 years but it was GOOD.

    If you do the car right, you will have a matching number crystal blue 911. Worth $100-150k
    That would require bare tub, celette, finding/restoring original steel bumper/fenders, finding/restoring date coded wheels etc....

    Well worth it given what the car is.
