    Richard Clewett and I worked on my ECU tune. While tuning, he is in Manhattan Beach and the car and I are in Colorado. I added a idle air control unit he sent me a while ago. I got it somewhat dialed. He dialed it in even better. It helps at idle at 10 to 12,000 feet, or when starting the car stone cold in the 30's to 50's. I've been along I70 on Vail pass (about 10,000 feet) a time or two while Richard was at his shop tweeking the tune. Jetting and timing are a keyboard tap away even at 1000 miles distance. Very convenient.
    Saturday 6/12 RMR/PCA will have it's first morning breakfast in about a year. It will be nice to see the folks and cars again.

    I just got my one inch longer set of axles from Peter to use with my altered 914 flanges and mag case transmissions. I talked to Peter last night and he has a new SWB set of stock length axles in inventory. These axles are a work of art. Don't miss out.

    The future suspension for this car. Stuff sitting on my shelf, except the bottom picture. Before this stuff goes on I'll have the front and rear weak areas gusseted. The yellow on the struts and all aluminum parts blue anodized will be changed to match the Elephant Racing front suspension grey. I wish the upper springs were black. Painting the axles black is easy. I try and avoid bright colors in the engine bay and under the car. I think it's more in keeping with the 50's, 60's time frame.

    I painted the front strut bottoms black today. I bead blasted the red springs. They will be powder coated dark grey. All bright blue parts will be anodized black. I'm going for as much of a Boge look as I can get on a coil over. The yellow zinc spring plates will be powder coated grey like the springs and yellow zinc hardware will be redone clear (silver). All suspension pickup points will get reinforced with metal plates. The red axles will go black. The axles might go on soon. The rest after the driving season as the engine, trans, and all suspension parts will come off the car to strengthen the pickup points.

    I enjoyed a nice 1/2 hour chat with Chuck Miller yesterday. We talked cars of course but then got off on California stories from when we were not just young at heart 40 to 50 years ago. He's a really great guy.

    I replaced my 20 mm front rotors with some new 24 mm Carrera rotors. Yes they're a little heavier. Both sets were cryoed. The 20 mm set has 18,000 miles on them and still measure over 20 mm. Not bad for rotors that started life rated at 20 mm new. I have a new 23 mm master on the shelf. I'm not sure yet if it's going to go on the car.
    The 20 mm rotors, some 3.0 Boge's and some 47 mm hubs are sold to a guy who is converting a 914 to a 5 bolt 911 front suspension.

    The idea is get the performance but not stand out. I want the coilovers to hide in plain sight. The grey is actually a little darker than what you see in the pictures.

    I drove about 100 miles today. My goal was to drive to the top on Mt. Evans (14000 feet) today. Everything was going well tell I got to the gate at 11000 feet. It now requires a reservation to drive to the top. I'll get my reservation and make another run in the next week or two. Even at 11000 feet I was running 13.5 to 14.2 AFR with a nice idle. I still have another setting to check at kPa 65.4 or about 13,000 feet. My goal is to have a nice idle and still run in the 13's for AFR. Anything North of 60 kPa or around 14,000 feet is for airplanes as there aren't any higher roads that I know of in North America or Canada. I wish I could put kPa 65.4 where kPa 50 is to make more check points between sea level and 14,000 feet. With this software, no can do.

    The grey is close to the blue on the 935 spring plate part that attaches to the torsion tube. That part was not powder coated.

    The car was just detailed and ceramic coated. Old paint gets a few more years of life.
