Phase One Complete

After fixing the headlamp switch and re-gluing the rear-view mirror back on, the 914 is fully operational and a total blast to drive! My friend Rick and I drove out to the Columbia Gorge for a hike. It was a beautiful day and having the Targa-top down allowed us to see all the mountains and cliffs on each side as we drove down I-84. I'm going to start commuting to work with the 914 to get used to the vehicle's capability and have some fun while it's still has the range of a gasoline car.

The only minor things left to fix are the accessory lights for the clock and oil-pressure guage and getting the clock working again. I hear fixing the clock is difficult, but I'll give it a shot. Many thanks to all my friends who have been so supportive of this project.
