So with some trepidation my trusty rusty is now coming with me to Italy. I apologize for the uncertainty but the cost has been daunting. Figured whilst there's a lot of sweat involved, I should just bite the bullet and tackle the longs and floorpan using the examples and guidance here on the world.

It's driving really well at the moment so I hope I can just get on and tackle the rust holes!

Car has running 2.0l engine, with original D-Jet injection. Has 5 alloys with chrome bumpers and centre console. Many good parts are included :
SS 2.0l Heat Exchangers,
One of Ben Mcfarlane's 2.0 SS muffler,
Replaced SS fuel lines and new rubber lines,
Resealed and repainted Targa top with refurbished latches,
Ball joints replaced,
Brake soft pipes renewed, new front brake calipers fitted,
New Battery and Earth Connection,
5 Fuchs 2.0l alloys (drivers condition) with new rubber,
Replacement (used but nearly new) rear springs,
Set of replacement doors,
Full set of replacement door glass,
914 Door Rubber Seal Kit,
New replacement front indicator lenses (warts and front) and replacement boots,

I've owned the car 4 years and have not been able to get the bodywork done, but have worked on mechanicals, brakes etc. It does require welding repairs to the longs, floorpan and tunnel, rear inner firewall. Hell hole has been repaired by PO. I've not done any welding on the car, as I didn't have enough experience / confidence.

Included are two new inner longs panels.

Additional pictures including the rust areas on the longs are available at this link. Includes a video of the car starting.

Even with the needed repairs, it seems like a lot of car for the money. GLWTS.

So with some trepidation Ive taken my trusty rusty off the market, its now coming with me to Italy. I found a shipper who works with mul deployments and has good prices. I apologize for the uncertainty but some of the costs were daunting. Figured whilst I've put some sweat into the mechanics, I should just bite the bullet and cautiously use the examples and knowledge here on the world and online and try to tackle the longs and floorpan rust issues.

It's driving really well at the moment so I hope I can just get on and tackle the rust holes!
