This blog follows the progress of restoring and converting a 1973 Porsche 914 from stock to full electric drive, with an electric motor and half a ton of batteries. Now that the car is done and in storage while I live overseas, I'm adding descriptions and pictures of each Tesla location I visit.

Front Hood Latch
The front hood latch arrived quickly after I ordered it on eBay. It was in good shape, but a bit oxidized, so I soaked it overnight in the metal restorer fluid.
I then bolted it into place in the front hood. I couple of adjustments later, I tightened everything down.
The hood now latches down beautifully, with consistent shot lines all around the hood. I now consider the front end of the car complete!
