COVID-19’s impact on Zuffenhaus policies & scheduling.

Observance of recent NC COVID-19 guidelines has resulted in a 6-8 week delay in project work; consequently, the schedule is currently full through November of this year. Due to this scheduling backlog, it is incredibly difficult to monitor the phone during the business day, so email is the preferred method of communication for the next few months – please use eurowerks@zuffenhaus.us For the safety of clients and family alike, no outside personnel has been given access to the shop interior or been within any proximity of client vehicles since mid-March; this policy will continue for the upcoming months while more …

DIY 356 (outlaw) project.

Thanks almost single-handedly  to the Emorys http://www.emorymotorsports.com/ the ‘outlaw’ 356 is on everyone’s short list nowadays.  Here is your opportunity to build your own. This outlaw 356  was started by a west-coast shop, then later sold to an east coast enthusiast.  It has been in storage at Zuffenhaus since 2009, and is now ready for a new owner to continue the project. The tub was previously prepared for a 911 engine/901 transaxle conversion, and shows some of the ‘outlaw’ visual language already; through-hood fill included. The tank has been modified for center-fill and the original filler closed: 911 Torsion Bar …

964 Backdate Notes: Hybrid Steering Column

Since 2006, we’ve been coming up with ways to backdate the 964 model into proper longhood 911s.  One item that we’ve had the opportunity to share with other shops is the hybrid steering column, which allows the use of 69-73 levers, clamshell, and steering wheel and really makes for an authentic interior statement. We’re posting our notes here for public consumption – enjoy and good luck!  (and let us know if you need a 380RS steering wheel to go with your newly backdated 964 steering column!)   😉 Click/tap on the text below for a smartphone-sized copy for easy access …

964 Backdate RSR

Just a quickie for Friday. This is the long overdue 964-to-1972 RSR build, on the rack for suspension rough-in. It’s the business, most assuredly. Initial rough-in is for ride height and rake decision-making, as well as creating a square and level base for hanging the front bodywork. Normally we’d set up a 964 nearly flat at the sills, but it just won’t say ‘911’ without some rake. This RSR is sans interior, trunk lid, fenders, fuel tank, and bumpers, but is respectably light even at this stage: Not bad for all-steel with sound-deadening. Completed project will have stereo, AC, and …

Deferred Maintenance, 2013.

Since we are also involved in servicing Porsches at Zuffenhaus Eurowerks, we see our fair share of wear and tear on 911s. The number of notable examples have risen since 2008, as owners felt the pinch of the economy and opted to defer regular maintenance. It’s 2013, and time to inspect and address issues! Here are a few examples of what we’ve encountered this year. 997 Water Pump: 993 C2S Wheel Bearing: 912 Wheel Bearing: These are safety issues, friends. For the sake of yourself and your passengers, it’s time to put 911 maintenance back into the household budget!

Ever seen any 1974 RSR endurance calipers? In person? We’ve finished up a cosmetic resurfacing and crossover line replacement on these historic pieces, and I thought you guys would appreciate some pictures before they are put back into service. Here they are on the Zuffenhaus conference table, prior to packing: :thumbs up:

RSR Zuchs! (Zuffenhaus Products 17inch 3-piece Fuchs-style wheels)

It’s been a while since I first heard the term ZUCHS; coined by a modern-day Andy Rooney on the Pelican Parts porsche web forum to describe our 17inch 3-piece Fuchs-style wheels. I think it’s appropriate to bring the term back into the lexicon for 2013, as the product is now being distributed in increasing quantities and showing up everywhere! Here’s today’s batch, in fact – fully assembled and ready for sealant – being carefully guarded by our in-house security while in our possession: Developed in 2008 in collaboration with Jeff Alton (then Zuffenhaus Products partner and father of the original …
