Joost's 412S is back from paint!

This is just for you guys and please keep it only here (as in not sharing the pics on other socials pls).

As some of you know, I still have good contact with the new owner of my old 412 and what he did is more then spectacular imo.
Bodywork is now spotless! And I mean really spotless inside and out. On top of that he had done a few things of himself, amongst which a carbo dash inlay and door cards, but most of all: the Riechert horizontal cooling system on my old 914 2.0 engine with Pauter rockers, dry-sumped still and with DTA EFI still working. Otherwise stock.
He was in for a dyno tune as I was there as well for my 1200 Challenge engine dynorun. I 'am sure he won't mind me posting some of the pics I took here :roll: 8)

Its still dusty and without bumpers, but you get the idea:

BTW, he had the rear deck lid remade in glasfiber (GFK): its perfect including the inside part for rain water, including cast in threads for the bolts of the hinges... :shock:

Warm-up run, lots of tuning thereafter but I went home, unable to buy her back ;-)

Cheers,

That is the first 412 I've seen that I like. Very cool.
