Thread: you find the damnedest things in your fender !

    you find the damnedest things in your fender !

    I thought I would share these pictures with you as I take on the task of restoring 69 911 E number 824. While in the disassembly process today, I uncovered this fairly elaborate evap tank in the drivers rear fender well. I've never seen anything like it before, and can't imagine why it was needed, but someone went through a lot of trouble to mount it, and plumb it. It even has a little drain plug. It takes the evap oil from the oil tank on the passangers side, and runs lines along the back of the tail light panel to this catch tank. It's pretty large, about the size of a 2 liter soda bottle. I'm not sure if this was a kit back in the day, but thought I would post it for posterity

    Are you sure it is not an onboard beer keg?

    When the Boxster came out it had a special recess in the front trunk for a pony keg.

    you may be correct...It may indeed be a pony keg of Spaten. I will try to tap it tomorrow!!

    It is for sure not factory. It ended up being a diesel oil filter adapted to give larger oil capacity and more filtration. My guess is a savvy mechanic sold this at great expense to a previous owner. On a side note the chassis is almost out of paint and I will be re-assembling it over the next year or two....
