OK, part #3. Final part? Read on..................

Painting took just two coats of brushed on Rustoleum; the same and left over paint we used for the interior. It was a bit of chore having to paint all round each tube and, because we didn't want to remove the sleeves again, required a bit of touch up later. But it is done and we think looks cracking!

While it was drying we ran to Fastenall to get some new hardware. We didn't like the black allen screws that came with the kit and wanted new nylock nuts too.

Then we threw it back in the car. cinched everything down and it fit perfectly.

Then we put the seats and belts back in to complete the project. Well, so we thought.

As you can probably see the seats sit too high; both for shoulder belt angle and head to cage relationship. Unfortunately we don't see any way to get them lower without cutting the existing mounting pads away and fabricating new ones and that is definitely another project so this one is done.

DOOR CARDS.

You may remember our car used to be dark pink with a beige interior? Well beige is not a rally color in our book and as this car appears to be transitioning into some sort of rally replica/tribute we thought the door cards needed some attention. We already removed the pockets to get the doors to close with the new cage but when we did the door cards just looked so wrong.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


So we did a little research and selected RENNLINE's RS inspired, black leather door cards as they are simple looking and retain all the funtionality of the originals in terms of switch gear etc. One bonus is that they replace the unusual and hard to find door latch handles with a rather nifty red pull strap. http://teamilluminata.com/products/rennline-porsche-911-door-panels




They come complete with everything you need to complete the swap making it a very easy job.

They are a very universal kit that come with all the cutouts already made. All you do is cut out the leather from the holes you need and leave the others in place.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Removing all the dodads from the door is pretty easy

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


as is removing the door card itself

We discovered that our door caps were covered in brown leather from the factory but it peeled away easily to reveal patterned black plastic below. After removing a bit of old glue they looked like new.

and before we knew it; race car!

Re: 911 Carrera RallyCross Project

Spring is finally here and it appears our little 911 has decided what it's new role in life will be: as a show car!. I know, I know, they should be driven and it's a race car but to be honest sales are keeping us busy and it is over 30 years old now. Perhaps retirement is appropriate. Having said that we do have two defenses to mount: one, it keeps getting invited to shows and two, we have entered the next Detroit Region RallyCross so it's not all show and no go.

So what prompted this you may ask? Well we did rather enjoy showing the car off at last year's [URL="[url]http://www.northernworthersee.com/"[/url];]Northern Worthersee show[/URL] in Frankenmuth, you may recall it won best Porsche or something. And the UR quattro of our friend Tim Maskus also won Best Of Show so these cars are very popular and get a lot of exposure.

[url=https://flic.kr/p/H5iHu2][img]https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7649/26959349925_52df2ceb19_c.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/H5iHu2]11899765_10153160145150773_3751792130510941922_n[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/team_illuminata/]Team Illuminata Motorsport[/url], on Flickr


The car is also very popular at local car and coffee gatherings as you can imagine.

[IMG][url=https://flic.kr/p/GZ4KKx][img]https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7552/26900043505_300e70942f_c.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/GZ4KKx]image[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/team_illuminata/]Team Illuminata Motorsport[/url], on Flickr[/IMG]

Which may have contributed it being invited to this year's [URL="http://www.eyesondesign.org/carshow/";]Eyes On Design show.[/URL] which is a HUGE honor.

Eyes On Design by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


So then we thought it would be good exposure to once again attend the [URL="[url]https://www.facebook.com/Motorstadt/timeline"[/url];]Motorstadt show[/URL] in June but this time as a vendor, again with the car of course. This one is a similar crowd as Wurthersee and they have always appreciated the older German stuff.

But then we also got invited to [URL="http://www.concoursusa.org/";]The Concours d'Elegance of America[/URL] along with a bunch of other rally oriented cars. It can't get any better.

However, despite all this attention we are not detailing the car. It's still a race car after all.

Was fortunate to make the list for the Detroit region of the SCCA RallyCross this past weekend. These events are always over-subscribed and for good reason; they are a great fun and exceptionally well run.

Unfortunately not driving competitively for six months really diminishes ones skills so, for the first time ever in a RallyCross the poor car did not take home a trophy. I apologized to it profusely.

Still, despite my lack of ability the car is still a crowd pleaser and produces excellent action shots and video:

As the opening salvo in our "All Show and All Go" program for 2016 we entered the car in it's first proper show of 2016, the Motorstadt show put on by the Michigan Volkswagen Enthusiasts and held on the beautiful grounds of the Austrian Society. We also entered our other 911 and our RALIVAN in the show and took along the entire dog and pony show too! It was a long day resulting in 2nd place for the RallyCross 911.

We were honored to be invited to the Eyes On Design show this year and surprised to win a Designer's Choice Award. We guess all that lack of preparation paid off.

Early bird gets the designated spot they would have had even if it were late.

As the car is red hot now we thought we'd be sensible and install a fire extinguisher before we need one. We went with a 2.5lb dry powder with a quick release mounting bracket.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


There were a few options for mounting: on the cage behind us, on the cage leg in co-drivers foot well, on the transmission tunnel in front of the shift lever. Finally we decided to mount it to the floor in front of the co-driver's seat as it would be most accessible for both driver and co-driver.

We took the "All Show and All Go" 911 to the Concours d'Elegance of America over the weekend to hang out with some other rally cars. There were two groups invited to this concours: real works rally cars with provenance and the rest of us "pretenders". We all participated in the peripheral cars and coffee type events but only the provenance-full cars were allowed on the concours field. The rest of us were allocated a club parking spot on the grounds. Still, it was good to meet people from the Historic Rally Cars Group in person and see cars we haven't seen live for thirty years or more.

Here we are with Colin McRae's Ford Focus.

More non-action action for our All Show and All Go Carrera RX this weekend as we took the car along with the dog and pony show to the Northernworthersee (NOWO) show in Frankenmuth. An apt setting as it is a German themed town and home to one of the largest Christmas stores in the world.

On the way up we had some fun racing our RALIVAN.

The event was well attended, mostly by lowered Golf's Jettas and Audis but we did manage third in the Porsche class. Unfortunately festivities were cut short by the weather so we had our Flint Water Crises on the way home while going through Flint.

Enthused by our jaunt to pseudo Germany we are inspired to take the car to Canada next weekend, the real Canada though.

Re: 911 Carrera RallyCross Project

Another outing for the 911 Carrera RX, this time with a bit of speed involved; only a bit mind. We were happy to sponsor the 3rd iteration of the Empire Hill Climb Revival in Empire, Michigan again this year and as a bonus they let us use the car as course opening vehicle. This meant our duties were to lead the convoy of race cars from the village center to the bottom of the hill, run ahead of them on the hill (at a moderate pace), lead them back down then around the block to the start again for two more climbs then back to the village. Despite our "moderate pace" on the hill we still had a lot of fun and would not have been last if we were entered.

You can watch some in car video of one of our faster runs here: https://www.facebook.com/TeamIlluminataMotorsport/videos/10153998737330773/


The weekend began early on Friday morning loading up the van and the car but by just after noon we were on the road.

It's only a little over four hours to Empire so we pulled up to our hotel for the weekend a little after 4pm.

After checking in and getting our key it was off to registration where we encountered this beauty

No, it's not a real one; well not quite. It is an actual rally car, just done up in period Rothmans livery. Looked and sounded great.


The Empire Hill Climb attracts quite a bit of vintage kit as indicated by this Mercedes 190 E 2.3-16 Cosworth in the hotel. Yes, those are BRAID wheels too.

and this 72 911 with 3.2 engine. An actual rally car.

There were plenty of other interesting vehicles running including a vintage Lola and a Toyota Starlet with a Sadev transmission! Yes, the Starlet won overall!
