  • Tom's long hood conversion

    Tom Perazzo is a contributor to this sight. Since the lock down is now lifting and we all still have nothing to do. I thought I would share Tom' s fabrication series on his 911. He bought a bare tub a few years back and is making a 72 RS clone, and has done a super job at the backdate. Very detailed conversion and with excellent techniques, and some really amazing TIG skills. He explains each process in super detail. I have enjoyed having breakfast every Saturday morning with him for over a year and a half. Look at the link, to about 100 videos. Start to watch to almost amazing complete long hood, RS backdate conversion ever. Anyone with an extra 911/8 , 2.7 MFI engine, Tom accepts donations.

      In last Saturdays YouTube installment (06/13/20) , Tom has a 912 engine he is going to cobble together a mount for and install it in the 911 to at least get it on the road.

      He has a 915 transmission already, so he needs a 911 engine to do ti right. Anyone with an extra spare or loaner 911 engine, it would be nice to see this project get a proper engine. He has a 10K budget goal for the entire car and I am sure he is up against the edge of the budget already. I know there are allot of engines out there in peoples stashes, or left from cars that were used for parts. Anyone with an extra engine get in touch with Tom. He makes a really innovative engine started adapter, maybe you could do some trading.

      The long hood RS backdate is really a superior build and deserves a proper motor.
