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.

Targa Top Foam and Liner
Since it's dark by the time I get home from work, I decided to do some work on the targa top in the workshop with the lights on. I prepped for spraying contact adhesive by running wide painter's tape around the outside edge.
I decided to use foil-lined insulated padding which will cut down on road noise and heat.
The foil side goes up, so it gets glued into the bottom of the targa top.
I then cut the liner oversize and spray glued it into place over the padding.
Next I will cut the liner to exact size, then mount the latches and rubber seals.
