About BJ Kellogg

I sweep the floors and answer the phones at 356Restore. I am married and have two daughters at home. If I am not working on a 356 I enjoy running and playing golf

Shop Notes

Found this in a car we are restoring. I have not seen one in years. It’s a oil can opener and spout

So it was not the fuel petcock but a leaking fuel tank. I banish the tank to a frozen snow bank til spring.! Or until I want to fix it tomorrow

The life of a Porsche mechanic. Continuing on the theme of the fancy life of a mechanic. Thursday is laundry and clean the shop day. Porsche used lead to smooth out the body panels and door/ lid gaps not any more. We leave our clothes here in the shop and wash them to prevent nasty stuff going home with us

The life of a Porsche mechanic. So the biggest change since the first of the year is the inventory accounting practices. The CPA said that we had to do something so BJ has been learning Excel is the most basic way. It did not go well but it is getting better

356Restore would like to welcome “808” or as we will call it this weekend “Santa’s Sleigh”. All the big guy has to do is put every bolt and nut back on, simple for him

2013 Octoberfast Spooktacular
October 26 – 27
PPIR will host RMVR’s last race of the season. Once again the Board determined that the club’s finances were good enough to go ahead and add this event to close out the year. Please join us for this special laid back, end-of-year, Customer Appreciation weekend. Help us wrap up a successful season on PPIR’s wonderfully smooth 1.3 mile road course.

Race Chair Tony Peak has some Halloween themed surprises in store for the weekend.

(Very fast cars of Indy like)

(I have the schedule and run groups if you want to see what is going on, email me bigdog356c@aol.com)

One thing is for certain, the southern Colorado location, full covered garages and superb facilities guarantee that inclement weather won’t be an issue. Plenty of nice hotels and restaurants are a mere 15 minutes away.

Weekend Features:

News Flash! This year, PPIR will be run clockwise! If you think you’ve mastered the track counterclockwise or are from some reason bored with PPIR, come on down for a completely new PPIR experience. Many organizations have run the track this direction including some RMVR members. Safety aspects have been thoroughly considered and no problems found. Consensus member input confirms they want to try it. Think of it as a new track—it should be fun. Dare we say “spooky”? Spooky can be fun!
There will be a food vendor for lunch and breakfast on both days.
Garages can be rented and RMVR will keep those proceeds. $75 gets you the whole weekend and each garage can usually host a couple of cars. Rent when registering. Get assigned garage space when registering at track.
Saturday’s after racing drinks and treats will be stepped up to help everyone stay and enjoy the costume party (details to follow) and live entertainment.
Fuel will be available at the track.
Plan on some Halloween themed stuff with prizes:
Best Halloween costume Saturday evening
Best Halloween theme pit area
and best corner station
Test & Tune of Friday—payable at the track, to the track.

Please let us know if you are bringing children so that we can get something special for them!

Special Customer Appreciation End of Year Pricing: Entry Fee Only $200!

You will never see it

I have been working on areas of Jim’s project that 99 percent of the people looking at it will never see. Unless it is on the rack with a flashlight or putting in new carpet no one will see it.  So why do it? Because it is the correct way of doing things
