This is Part 7 of a series on the conversion of a 914 to a 916-6 GT Porsche. In Part 1 of this 1972 Porsche 914 restoration/conversion to a 914/6 GT race car, we show the car after media blasting and outlined all the work that we will be completing. Part 2 covers the restoration starting with the rear quarter replacement and alignment.  Part 3 explained how the original fenders were removed and the new flared fenders were set in line.  Part 4 shows the final steps in grafting in the rear fenders.  Part 5 explains how the front fenders were grafted in.  Part 6 looks at the rocker panel transformation from a steel non 914-6 GT rocker into a custom rocker panel.

This post just gives a bunch of photos of the car in primer, ready for color.
