What was the outside temps when getting 38° out of the vents? That's pretty darn cold!

Some more progress on the 924 — I started to get the leather power seats into the car.

Here they are:

Had to run fused power to the drivers side seat but that was pretty simple.

I loved the Porsche script seats, but they were not in good shape and starting to split at the seams. This set of leather seats are really nice

Also, tackling the fuel smell in the cabin. Apparently, its a pretty common problem with 924s’s and pre-1985 944s that had the metal gas tanks. They all crack in the same place. Shown here:

So I have the fuel tank in my truck to take to a radiator shop locally for a welded fix. Then, back in!

Also I’ve bought all the one way valves and breather stuff. A lot of times, these one way valves stick and cause excess vacuum in the tank which would lead to the crack you see there.

Onward and upward!
