This is Part 8 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.  Part 7 shows photos of the car in primer, ready for paint.

This post shows photos of the 914-6 GT in Glasurit Signal Orange.  We tested Tangerine Orange as well, and Signal came out the winner.  The rockers and bumpers will be a semi-gloss black to complete the racing look.  The under body is Signal Orange in a custom blend with under body textured coating.
