1986 Porsche 928 – Winter Maintenance

I had really been concentrating my efforts in 2021 on the restoration of my 1963 Jaguar Etype. See here. But as cold weather set in around Christmas, I decided to retreat to a heated garage where I could perform some much needed maintenance on my Porsche 928. In particular, there were fluid leaks that had … Continue reading

1986 Porsche 928 – Dash Repair- Again

A number of years ago, in 2015, I repaired the leather dash on my 928. It had developed “eyebrows” along the front edge of the defrost vents. The leather shrinks badly and pulls out from under the edge of the vents. It is not a good look. That repair is discussed here. In the last … Continue reading

1986 Porsche 928 – Power Steering Hoses

Being the dead of winter, working on paint and bodywork on the Etype is problematic. So I have turned my attention to my Porsche 928. It has developed a power steering fluid leak and frankly, I had quit driving it for fear of a fatal engine compartment fire. Amazingly, after months of sitting, it pretty … Continue reading

Porsche 928 – Fun at VIR

Last weekend I was able to take the Porsche 928 to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) which is fortunately about 1 1/2 hours drive from my house. I have been to VIR many times with my Porsche 944 track car and even a few types with the E-Type, but never with the 928 till now. The … Continue reading

Porsche 928 Care and Feeding – Carpet Installed, Dash Repaired

This last summer I treated and dyed all the leather upholstery items in the interior of my 1986 Porsche 928.  See that story here. Of course, as I knew would happen, the shiny new leather made the tired old carpet look even worse. Something had to be done! After a minimal amount of research on … Continue reading

Deflating a Porsche Spacer Saver Spare Tire

I had the misfortune of doing serious damage to the right rear wheel on my Porsche 928 during spirited driving.  See that story here.  During this event I was forced to remove the space saver spare tire from it’s long term home and inflate it on the road side with the small pump that I … Continue reading

Porsche 928 – Wheel Mayhem

I was out for a spirited drive in the NC mountains last weekend. A rock at the apex of a corner reached out and re-arranged my rim. I got the car slowed down and parked on a level spot. Time to see how that 30 year old spare was feeling. Much to my amazement it … Continue reading

Porsche 928 Care and Feeding – Top End Refresh

A fairly standard maintenance action for the Porsche 928 is to refresh the top end.  In simple terms, there are a lot of rubber hoses and gaskets surfaces that reside in the “V” between the cylinder heads that can become worn out and possibly dangerous due to the long term degradation from the heat and … Continue reading

Porsche 928 Care and Feeding – Upholstery Installed

Last weekend I got a chance to install my newly re-dyed leather upholstery.  A few preliminary jobs were required.  First I decided to paint all the loose plastic parts with a black satin spray can paint. While this paint was drying (actually well after it was dry) I spent quite a bit of time cleaning … Continue reading
