Joost's 412S is back from paint!

Post by Wally »

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.

Yess! L20A Marinogelb

He washed it for the first time in many years:

Hope he attaches all other parts soon!

Dynotime resulted in a very drivable engine (still original, lots of miles probably). Stock cam, exhaust, CR, pistons and internals mind you! Pauter rockers though :wink:
