Editor’s Notes

Story by Garey Cooper

Garey, Maxine and Daughter-in-law

A Tower in the Sky

High atop the gleaming tower, where

wind and sun search and scour. Steel

and glass the heights surpass. Ceaseless

and enquiring, our minds empowering

the search for mirth and automotive lark;

again upon a new month start.

And to think all this occurs while far

below the ebb and flow of normal folk, in

normal poke, race along to normal fates,

away from us and our exotic dates.

An American in America

I am writing this column while still

on something of a “high”, at least

metaphorically speaking. Mrs. Cooper

and I recently accompanied my beautiful

daughter-in-law to her naturalization

ceremony in Los Angeles. Linda comes

from another country and has come to

be American in heart and by choice. It is

sad to say, but having been born here and

being American by many generations, so

far as I can tell, the full and meaningful

impact of this status only comes to me

by seeing some others who choose to be

American. The cynic might say that they

do it for money and jobs as much as by

consideration of our traditions and values.

However if you go to the ceremony and

see the tears and joy that are so evident,

you might, perhaps, like me become a

little less cynical about it all. For the

three of us, at least in our little nucleus of

family, there were tears aplenty and while

trying to be “manly” attempting to choke

my tears back; they still flowed. We left

feeling absolutely renewed and I thought

of what it means to be an American, a

citizen of the United States and made

a pledge to try to not take it for granted

after witnessing so many who came from

someplace else and worked to have a

little bit of the dream.

Speaking of cynicism some years

ago I visited Fredericksburg and walked

the hillside up to the hill called “Marye

Heights”. At that time and I imagine

still today, it is quite easy to see the

Rappahannock river and the slope

leading up to the heights. The slope

along which the Union soldiers advanced

into an impenetrable wall of musket and

cannon fire. So impenetrable that many

The Art of Detailing:

Not a Madison Avenue Proposition - Part II

Story by Moe Mystry

In our previous article, we discussed

what happens when the consumer price

hunts for a specialized service resulting

in a detailer falling into that trap. We also

talked about what the majority of the

price of a detail is comprised of, detailer

knowledge and workmanship.

In this article, we’ll discuss what

you end up paying for at different price

points and how they impact five key

areas of distinguish: product quality,

detailer experience, level of attention,

liability insurance and detailer’s future

existence.

Different price points are a result

of the detailer’s market, experience and

level of service. My assumption is an

average Porsche in Southern California;

997 Carrera S, black, detailed 6-8 months

ago and has been washed by a local wash

guy that comes to the office. There are

microswirls and light scratches around

the car. The interior has never been

treated.

We’ll be gauging the detail in areas

such as:

• Product Quality: The quality of

the products used will dictate the level

of protection, the overall “look” of the

detail and durability. Usually, the higher

the quality of ingredients, the longer

your car will look great; this means more

value.

• Detailer Experience: Since our

industry isn’t regulated, you don’t really

know how experienced the detailer

REALLY is until he’s working on your

car. The more skill and expertise a

detailer has, the greater the cost of the

detail. This translates to more value

for you. If your detailer has experience

with your type of car, the quicker he can

remedy the situation that needs attention.

In other words, the job is done right the

first time.

• Level of Attention (Time): The

longer a detailer can spend time on your

car, the greater the attention. When the

detailer isn’t rushed from job to job, he

can truly focus on the car at hand. The

average proper detail should not be less

than four hours without paint correction,

it’s usually around five to six hours,

depending on the level of service and

number of detailers working. If paint

correction is involved, expect 12-30

man-hours.

• Liability: This is insurance

to cover both the vehicle and others. If

there are any accidents or unforeseen

incidents and if the work is being done on

your premises, you are liable. An insured

detailer has a liability policy reducing or

eliminating the client’s liability. A good

policy will be from a reputable company

and should cover damages to the vehicle

and persons in the area. A good Insurance

policy for detailers is very expensive.

We are categorized in the same class as

repair shops and mechanics. There is no

classification for auto detailing because

it’s an industry with little or no regulation.

Most detailers don’t even have a business

checking account or business license.

• Detailer’s Future Existence:

Depending on the geographic region, a

large portion of the price you pay for a

detail needs to be invested back into the

company. A smart detailer understands

this and values the future of the company.

Investments in technology, labor and

marketing are a few areas where the

dollars go to. This way, the detailer you

used a year ago will be around this year

and many years to come.

Below are some examples of what

the price point gets you:

$125 price point:

• Product Quality: Products are usually

a notch above the consumer lines

found in auto parts store. Mainly,

cheaper chemicals that are less

effective. In the long run, you can

expect this level of product to last a

few weeks.

• Detailer Experience: Usually just

starting out and needing to have a

low price to get business. If already

established, in desperate need of

business.

• Level of Attention: Little to none.

Time is of the essence here. For

someone to be profitable at this price

point, volume is the key. If mobile, by

the time one factors in gas, product

cost, taxes, advertising, etc., there is

only a modest profit to survive. If a

brick-and-mortar, barely enough to

cover fixed costs and overhead.

• Liability: Usually none. Insurance is

very expensive for detailers.

• Future Existence: When all the costs

and wages are factored in, little to

no money can be allocated to the

business. Hence, why there are so

many fly-by-night detailers.

$300 price point:

• Product Quality: Products are

somewhat improved. We now get

into the ProSumer line of products.

These products perform leaps and

How to Clean H5 Lights

Story and photos by Cooper Boggs and Kevin Torre

1987-1989 911 H5 Headlight Cleaning

Do you own an ’87-’89 911 Carrera/930

Turbo? Have you noticed that your

headlights look hazy or milky? Porsche

used the Bosch H5 headlight assembly

on these 911 series cars. The H5 is the

US Spec. DOT approved version of the

popular European H4 headlight assembly.

The H5 lights are a sealed lamp, however,

over years of use, moisture can get inside

and create a residue on the inner lens of

the light. Cooper Boggs and Kevin Torre

teamed up to clean the lights on Kevin’s

recently acquired 1987 911 Targa.

screws. These should NOT be removed

or adjusted during the cleaning! The

headlight ring screw is typically a captive

screw. Don’t worry if you loosen it for it

won’t come completely out of the ring.

To remove the ring from the car

takes a little finesse. Years of grime and

wax residue can make the ring really

stick to the gasket at the fender. Once the

screw is loose, push down on the top of

the trim ring and using your fingers try to

carefully pry each side of the ring away

from the fender. The ring is hooked at

the top of the fender onto a small lip. Tip

the ring out at the bottom and then lift it

straight up at the top.

with it. They are retained with a small

nylon washer. If you drop one into the

bucket, don’t panic, they often fall out

the bottom drain hole onto the ground

under the front of the car.

Step one is to gather all of the items

you will need. These include a Philips

screwdriver, a magnetic pick up tool, a

long flat blade screwdriver, mechanics

fingers or needle nose pliers, glass cleaner,

paper towels, a soft bristled brush or tooth

brush, anti-seize and a couple of q-tips.

Next we will remove the headlight

trim ring from the car. This is accomplished

by removing the single Philips screw at

the bottom of the ring. Please note, the

two rubber caps on the top and side of the

ring allow access to the headlight aiming

Once the trim ring is removed you

will see the headlight unit itself. The glass

lens of the H5 is bonded to the reflector

housing. Six more screws should now

be visible. It is important to identify the

two adjustment screws and NOT move

them. You can do this by looking at the

position of the rubber grommets in the

trim ring and their relationship to the

screws underneath.

The other four screws are more

deeply recessed and evenly spaced at

the upper and lower right and left of the

headlight unit. These four screws hold

the headlight carrier assembly to the

fender bucket. To remove these use your

Philips screwdriver. The screws should

be captive to the carrier. It is handy to

have a magnetic pick up tool near by in

case you realize the screws are loose.

Each screw has a flat and lock washer

Once the headlight unit is loose, you

will need to unplug the wiring harness

from the bulb. This is accomplished by

squeezing on the connector and wiggling

it loose.

Losing Control and the Happiness That Follows

Story by John Ortiz

Having owned 3 Boxsters, I figured I

knew how to corner in a Porsche. That

thought, along with a few expletives,

flew right out the window as I entered

a freeway ramp with the tail end of my

911SC whipped out to where my front

end should have been. Fortunately, I just

had to hang a quick u-turn before I was

on my way again. Good thing the smell

of sweat and fear doesn’t linger long with

the windows down.

Like many Porsche owners, my

attraction to German cars started early

on. My older brothers (Dave & Rick)

both drove Volkswagens when I was a kid

so it was natural for me to do the same.

I had a powder blue Squareback that

Rick and I lowered, painted the wheels

and replaced the fuel injection with dual

Solexes. However, it was Rick’s 1/4 mile

drags in his VW (with a built 1835) that

got me hooked on speed.

My parent’s house always had a VW parked

out front

Flash forward to an early morning

in March of 2011. I’m pulling into Cars

& Coffee to park my Porsche along side

likewise cars. It’s sprinkling and the

turnout is light. I duck for shelter under

a tree and strike up a conversation with a

complete stranger who turns out to be a

fellow PCA member and SC owner. What

followed was a spirited conversation

with Dave Waddell about autocrossing

at El Toro. I had heard of the events but

was intimidated by the idea of getting

out there. Dave’s enthusiasm and “just

come have fun” attitude sold me on the

idea (and I suppose this is a good time to

admit that this is the same morning I had

spun-out entering the freeway).

Being the cautious planner that I am,

I read a few articles on how to autocross

and watched my share of online videos

featuring the sport. I then prepared my

car by having the driver’s seat lowered.

This wasn’t absolutely necessary, but I

wanted to be comfortable driving while

wearing a helmet. I also swapped the

steering wheel with a MOMO and set

aside a few bucks to buy a helmet. I

knew loaners would be available but

my inner planner told me, “Buy one in

case they don’t have a size to fit your fat

head”. All the while my wife, Christina,

Auto-X Corner:

2012 Auto-X Season Kicks Off

with a Double Header!

Story by Steve Eguina - Auto-X Team Emeritus

Photos by Jon Perino • Studio Z Ad/Design

RacingLifestyle is the event sponsor along with Fairview

Mortgage Capital

AHH YES!... Finally it is Saturday

February 18, 2012. The long cold

Southern California winter, that kept us in

our garages from mid December to mid

February, is finally over and we can look

forward to the start of the Orange Coast

Region driving events. The start of each

new season offers OCR members the

opportunity to participate in the annual

OCR Drivers Clinic at El Toro Fields.

This is a great event for young and old

Porsche owners alike… and young and

old porsches! The event is well planned

and is the result of a lot of hard work

by OCR’s Chief Driving instructors

Richard & Dennis Neff and is supported

by their highly trained staff and cadre

of instructors. The event planning and

instructor training day was held earlier

in the year with excellent attendance for

new and returning OCR instructors.

The Drivers Clinic is a great starting

point for anyone to learn better car control

and to have fun with their Porsche.

Students were provided an instructor

for the day. During the morning session

drivers are challenged by various car

control exercises and a wet skid pad,

which allows them to learn the limits of

their cars traction. This was followed by

the “traditional” pizza lunch, (just like

at the Ferrari club meetings) seems like

lunch should have been bratwurst and

Chief Driving instructor Dennis Neff

sauerkraut. After lunch,

a mini-Auto-X course

was set up for students

to practice their newly

learned skills. This is more

fun than you can imagine

and everyone is given the opportunity to

practice these driving skills as they work

the course.

A great time was had by all and

many of the students returned the next

day to participate

in the first event of

the 2012 Walter’s

Porsche Auto-X

C h a m p i o n s h i p

Series. You are

invited to come out

to any event play

with your Porsche.

We will provide you

with a loaner helmet

and a friendly

instructor. See

the 2012 schedule

elsewhere in this

issue. Please don’t wait till next year to

come have fun with your Porsche!

Kicking off the Walter’s Porsche Auto-

X Championship Series.

SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! We are

here LIVE at El Toro Fields to bring you

the first 2012 Walter Porsche OCR Auto-

X Championship Event! With Porsche

engines warming up in the background,

(Vroom – Vroom) the air was electric as

the announcers voice echoed across the

massive El Toro runways.

We are fortunate to have Walter’s

Porsche again this year as our Series

Sponsor, GMG-Global Motorsport

Group as our Series Support Sponsor

and for this event Fairview Mortgage

Capital and RacingLifestyle.com as

our event sponsors. When you need any

of our sponsors services, please give

them a call. They are all PCA members

and will look out for your well-being and

provide excellent service.

Walter’s Porsche Hosts 2012 AutoCross Party

Story by Bob Scheussler & Photos by Lisa Goetsch

The 2011 Walter’s Porsche Autocross

Series Awards Party was hosted for the

fourth consecutive year by Walter’s

Porsche in Riverside, on February 25.

Our Awards party marked the first event

in Walter’s newly remodeled Porsche

showroom and included Walter’s official

unveiling of the new Porsche 991. Over

75 drivers, family members and friends

attended this annual event to relive the

2011 Autocross season and celebrate

victories with the award winners. After

enjoying the beautiful selection of food

and beverages provided by Walter’s,

the group was welcomed by Walter’s

Porsche Audi General Manager, Ed

McRae. Ed remarked how pleased

Walter’s is with relationship the Orange

Coast Region has enjoyed with Walter’s

and they look forward to their fifth year

of PCAOCR Sponsorship in 2012. Ed

stated he believes that our association

has been beneficial for both Walter’s and

the Club.

Ed then introduced Walter Kienle,

the Walter in Walter’s, who unveiled

the new 991for Club members. Walter

entertained the audience with a few of his

many Porsche experiences over the years

during his journey from New York City

mechanic to becoming the successful

owner of Walter’s Automotive Group.

Walter also mentioned that he is proud to

be associated with our Club and offered

many kind words of encouragement and

praise for our Autocross program!

Bob Scheussler next presented a

Sponsors Trophy to Walter Kienle and

awarded Sponsor jackets to eighteen

Walter’s employees in recognition of

their individual contributions to the

Walter’s/PCAOCR relationship.

Omniplatform, the PCAOCR

website sponsor, was recognized for their

ongoing contributions during 2011 to our

Club website which is a key element of

Book Review:

PORSCHE and ME

Article by Bruce Herrington

Porsche and Me – Hans Mezger, an

Autobiography with Peter Morgan,

published by PMM Books,, Malborough,

Great Britain.

The long awaited ‘autobiography’ of

Hans Mezger is now available. Porsche

and Me is virtually a picture book with

many illustrations of cars, components,

engineering drawings (which identify

the pun in the book’s title), and award

certificates. It presents a richly personal

account of the work life of a very

dedicated member of the Porsche family.

It is not truly the autobiography of Hans

Mezger, the person, but rather that of

Hans Mezger, Design Engineer. It may

not fulfill all the expectations of those

who have awaited this book’s arrival

– it is not a how-to of engine design, it

does not tabulate the day to day life of a

Porsche Employee, it does not chronicle

the growth of Porsche from struggling

specialty manufacturer to a major

automotive powerhouse. But it

does touch on all of these issues,

as well as talk about the process

of designing racing engines and

the cars into which they were

installed.

So why should a Porschephille

care about a biography of Hans

Mezger? His may not be a household

name, but after 37 years with

Porsche, his engineering designs

are part of every Porschephille’s

house garage. Perhaps Ferdinand

K Piëch (grandson of Ferdinand

Porsche and currently the Chairman of

the supervisory board of Volkswagen

Group that now owns Porsche) said it

best: “Without Hans Mezger, Porsche

wouldn’t be renowned worldwide as the

ultimate in sports cars.” Hans Mezger is

widely acknowledged as the ‘father’ of

the 911 engine. This book documents

some of his less well know achievements:

the design of the 917 engine, the TAG

Formula 1 V-6 and many, many detail

refinements of a variety of products built

for Porsche cars and contract customers.

In 1956, as a fresh engineering

graduate, Mezger was hired to work in

Rice’s Ramblings:

Center Loc To 5 Stud - M96-97 Chip Detector

Hot Air Socket Now Metal

Story by Lee Rice

April is upon us “Porsche pushers”

once again and it is the 100th anniversary

of the loss of RMS Titanic. Aren’t we glad

to live in our modern world of computer

technology where passenger ships don’t

sink anymore? No one could possibly

foresee the failure of 1912 technology

on that fateful night so long ago, but that

“unsinkable” attitude changed the way

we think today.

I became aware of this as I grew up

in the aviation world because my father

was a maintenance officer for a P-51

fighter facility in England during WWII

and also flew combat missions in B-17s

and got 5.5 aerial kills credited. My dad

taught my brother and me to never forget

that it is “the thing you don’t see that

is usually going to get you.” Whether

that was a Me 109 or an unforeseen

malfunction of a P-51s Rolls-Royce

Merlin engine was what kept him awake

at night. Today reliance on computer

run Porsches, and everything else, is not

“unsinkable” either.

Computers: I love ‘em! I and many

‘gray hair’ Porsche owners can tell you,

we didn’t have computers “back in

the day” and had to know mechanical

engineering to know how to maintain

a 356 Super. Those wonderful running

machines were all mechanical and also

had personalities. The only way you

knew that a 356 Super or 2.0L 911S

was running right was to listen to them

run and know by the sounds and how

the engine responded. Then you knew

everything was running right. Those

wonderful 356 Solex carburetors got out

of “tune” every year or two, and finding

a reliable mechanic was not enough. You

Feature Losing Control:

(Continued from Page 9)

Lined up at Irvine’s Cars and Coffee

was witness to a transformation and

probably wondering what had gotten into

her husband.

Around that same time, I attended

Fontana’s Festival of Speed with a few

friends. I parked in the display area and

enjoyed being close to the action. My

friends and I test drove three different,

mid-engine Porsches in the miniautocross

area and took track tours with

professional Porsche drivers. I even drove

the track in my car during the lunchtime

tour… a memory I can best equate to a

first kiss.

Lunchtime track tour at Fontana

Back in the display area, I met a

gentleman that took a liking to my car.

After chatting a bit I realized that this

guy drove the red SC I had spotted in my

neighborhood. And so it was, I had finally

met Ken “Fast Freddy” Fredrickson.

Like Dave, he was quick to invite me to

Autocross at El Toro. Since then, I’ve

seen Ken at several PCA events and I

can genuinely tell you that there are few

people friendlier than him.

It’s now June and I’m idling in the

autocross grid with my first instructor

Eric Monroe. We’re chatting about

my car and he’s preparing me for how

much fun I’m going to have when I hit

the course. I nervously pull into the start

position and all seems fine. As I drop

the clutch I think I hear Eric say, “Save

your rubber for the course.” I’m off to a

quick start until I round a set of cones and

realize I’m completely lost. Eric directs

me to look ahead and with some effort

we make it through our first run. It’s

a warm day but I’m feeling refreshed

and excited about driving the course

again. I do better the 2nd and 3rd times

around and I even get a high-five from

Eric as I continually shave seconds off

my time. Looks like his, “FASTER,

FASTER, FASTER!” cheer is working.

When we finally get to the timed runs,

Eric gives me the green light to run the

course solo.

Jon Perino’s photo of me at El Toro

Early on, I heard a few drivers say

successful autocrossing comes down to

two variables: Good driving and good

tires. As my car wasn’t getting itself a

new driver, I opted for the latter. James

at Cape Auto oversaw the new tire

purchase, installation and subsequent

corner balancing of my car. These may

seem like simple things but I can honestly

tell you that it was as if my car had been

reborn! It’s hard to believe a car from

1983 can handle so darn well.

In the months that followed, my wife

Christina endured several conversations

that either began or finished with some

mention of autocross and she has become

accustom to my early morning alarm that

gets my tail out of bed, showered and

down to El Toro in time for a proper tech

inspection.

I’m now enjoying my second season

of autocrossing, and I’ve recruited two

of the employees from my advertising &

design business to participate. Jon Perino

and Isrrael Hernandez have shot and

assembled a few videos that have been

posted in the PCA/OCR autocross forum

and hopefully by the time this article

publishes, I will have another video from

the February event posted. And, not to

leave anyone in the office out, I’ve had

Christina and I getting ready to roll

designer, Eric Hollandsworth, create

me a poster of my car for the office.

In all, I have had an awesome

2011. I’ve met several great people

through PCA and have come to learn

how to keep the tail end of my car

where it belongs. Whether you’re new

to autocross or a seasoned driver, stop

by my “camp” and say hello. You’ll

most likely find Dave and I struggling

to upright a blue shade canopy in the

pit area.

Auto-X Corner:

(Continued from Page 11)

Christian Van Fleet received the top BRI award for the day

Chuck Bartolon, 2012 Auto-X C0-Chair, driving the blue goose

happen ON TIME for the last 8 years.

These are dedicated OCR members

with a passion for seeing their fellow

members have a good time playing with

their Porsches.

For 2012 Zone 8 has a new set of

car classing rules that were developed

so Porsches of comparable speed could

compete against each other. This means

you can have a modified 1973 914 in

the same class as a “fairly” stock 993

or a 2002 Boxster S and a 1978 911

SC matched up. The goal of these new

classes is to make for closer competition

and to challenge all drivers to get the

most out of their Porsches on the course.

After a couple sessions dedicated

to practice runs, everyone is warmed up

and the fun begins. About 2:30 the timed

runs begin that count toward this years

Championship Points.

Looking at the results of last week,

the new classing seems to have achieved

its desired results. For example, in class

CC04 Josef West, driving his 1979 924,

was first in class over Richard Neff’s

1987 951 Porsche by only .4 seconds.

In 5 car CC06 class Chuck Bartolon,

driving his 964, was only bested by

Jeremy Cottrell in his 1972 911 by .201

seconds. In class CC08 David Witters

73 914 was first over Rod Taylor in his

69 911 by only .052 seconds with Kris

Scheussler in his 85 911 by only another

.384 seconds. Six other drivers finished

out that class. The novice class is open

to drivers who are new to the series

and it gives them a chance to compare

themselves with other new drivers. Jim

Leslie toped the Novice class driving

his 2012 Cayman S with Tray Evarts,

James Leslie, Margie Evarts and

Dennis Wolfe in the next four positions,

all four less than 1 second apart! Now

that is close competition.

Rice’s Ramblings: (Continued from Page 15)

needed a mechanic who knows how to

‘tune’ those engines. The rewarding

drive after good tuning was well worth

the time and cost.

Today’s Porsche are in many way not

all that different. Sure today’s sparkplugs

last years instead of weeks - if you were

lucky, back then. Almost every car out

there is government mandated to have

chassis, braking, steering and engine

over-ride controls to protect us from,

mostly, ourselves! This has evolved with

better sensors that monitor some of the

slightest changes undetectable by human

sensing. This is why driving on a once

‘ragged edge’ is all under supervised

control by computer driven Porsches of

today.

And today’s 991 is almost entirely

computer built. Each nut, bolt and screw

are torqued to a hair of exact calibrated

stretch, as perfect as man and computer

can make them. Some will argue that

there is an irony in all this as the 2014

Shelby Mustang 500 will have a 650Hp

engine, hand built by a specially trained

team at Ford, and costing a 3rd of the

price of the fabulous 650+ hp 2012

Patrick with his wife Linda

I was shocked to hear the news that Pat

passed away on March 10, 2012. I had

just seen him at our open house a couple

weeks earlier. He was his normal smiling

self, just chatting with my Dad about the

latest offerings from Stuttgart. As I sat at

my desk letting the news sink in, I realized

that in the past 15 years I’d know Pat, I

never saw him with anything less than a

smile. Nothing but kind words ever left

his mouth. It has always been people like

Pat that make PCA what it is. To me, Pat

represented everything a friend should

be. His passion and charisma were

contagious. Ever since the first time I

met him at a PCA event, I noticed that

911 Turbo GT2-RS. Where is quality

really found? As much as I love a hand

built, specialist built, engine - as I do, I

know from jet engine engineering that

the computer method is actually more

efficient. And note, I didn’t say better!

911 ENGINE OIL PRESURE NOT

THERE!

An unfortunate story or a new rebuild run

on a reliable shop dyno showed very low

cranking and starting oil pressure? After

replacing the engine mounted Oil Cooler

and checking as much as possible nothing

revealed a cause. A teardown was done

and everything looked good. Nothing was

found to be missing. All crankshaft plug

pins were installed, Oil squirters installed

and pressure to blow-off tested normal?

After re-examining the OIL PUMP it was

noticed that the OIL SEAL between the

oil Pump and the R/H Engine case was

not deformed from normal assembly. The

3 ea nuts securing the Oil Pump to the R/

H case were fully threaded and tight but

the oil seal did not mate tightly against

the Oil Pump and crankcase? Closely

examining one of my own oil seals from

a recent purchased gasket kit for a 3.6

Article by Paul Kramer

people just wanted to be around him. His

untimely passing has left a gap in all of

our hearts.

Pat had (for many of us) the “dream

job.” The first time I heard him speak, I

was enthralled by his tales of traveling

the globe and driving some of the best

cars on the best roads in the world. The

romantic idea of being an automotive

journalist sounded so appealing. He

would tease us with pictures of himself

and his wife, Linda, standing next to a

Lamborghini that they just drove on an

Italian racecourse. Where do I sign up?

Pat worked hard at making his

dreams come true. Like anything in life,

good things do not come easy. However,

Pat always made it seem effortless. To

be in his company was always a joy and

privilege. Like many others, he inspired

me to chase my dreams. Although we

will all miss him horribly, I’m grateful

to have been able to share time with him

and call him my friend. We love you

Pat.

Turbo engine, I observed that the oil

seal, Nr. 999.704.172.50 is a red-orange

colored seal. (I shall not name the brand

name here). The specification for this seal

is 19.5 x 26mm (dia.) and I have seen a

specification for a thickness of 10mm. In

my gasket kit I found the red-orange seals

I had measured at 8.9 mm thick, using a

Fowler metric caliper. In my shop supply

I have a separate supply of green “Viton”

oil seals, with the same part number. The

Viton seals I measured at 9.9mm thick.

After installing my Oil Pump on my

engine, and then removing it, I could see

a good seating on the green seal. I have

advised my supplier and suggest anyone

having serious engine work done inquire

to the seals being used.

This is a bit deep for most Porsche

owners to be concerned about but it

should be an awareness to all who do their

own rebuilds. PS My gasket kit was not a

‘cheap-o’ rebuild kit either. My supplier

also supplies Porsche dealerships. I can

only guess a rare manufacturing “issue

is suspect.

Questions, Comments, and inquires

are welcome.

Ed from Walters brought a brand new 991 for everyone to oogle and

Some people play house; Pamela plays with houses and with cars.

Maybe if Ed buys a big new house from Pamela, then Pamela can

You move fast. So do we.

Almost twenty years ago, we pioneered pleasure-use insurance exclusively to PCA members nationwide.

Over time our plans have grown.

They have grown again. A lot.

Want to commute occasionally? Fine. Want unlimited mileage? No problem. Don’t want to pay a

deductible? Ok. Or pile savings onto savings: set limits for even bigger discounts.

There’s more. Our new California program also covers race cars, street rods, trailers, classic and

custom motorcycles, special interest vehicles (like your Porsche tractor), kit cars and replicas.

One thing that hasn’t changed is our personal service. We’re here to help you.

How to Clean H5 Llights:

(Continued from Page 8)

Next take the light unit to a suitable

work surface. We used a work shop

table covered with microfiber cloths.

You might also try the dining room table

covered with placemats. The only access

to the inside of the lens is through the

bulb hole.

Once on the table we took our soft

bristled brush and brushed off all of the

loose dust and dirt. Next you will need

to remove the star shaped bulb retainer.

This is a ½ turn screw-type retainer.

Once loose you can take out the bulb.

not to bend the reflector tab inside the

housing!

Manipulate the towel around as best

as possible with your pushing implement.

We were able to jam the towel into lots of

nooks without a problem. The top of the

light housing has a challenging recess to

clean.

wipe all of the old road dirt out of the

headlight buckets, wiring harness and

gaskets. It is also a wise idea to use a

q-tip to apply a small amount of antiseize

to the threaded mounting tabs in

the headlight buckets. This insures easy

removal in the future.

Remember NOT to touch the glass

part of the bulb. Touching any Halogen

bulb will leave oils from your fingers

behind and cause a hot spot on the bulb.

This will lead to the bulb burning out in

very short order! (oops, I already touched

it, now what? Use Denatured alcohol

on a clean cloth to wipe the bulb down

before reinstallation.) Each light unit

also has a desiccant pack attached to its

bottom. Using your Philips screwdriver

remove the drier. This will allow quicker

evaporation of the glass cleaner.

After removing the bulb, squirt a little

bit of glass cleaner (2-3 squirts) into the

housing, insert a paper towel and push it

in with the long flat blade screwdriver or

another suitable item. (chopstick, handle

of a wooden kitchen spoon) Be careful

Once you feel the lens is sufficiently

clean, remove the towel. We used

mechanics fingers to help. Needle nose

pliers might also help.

Next the remaining liquid needs to

be dried from the housing. We chose to

place our headlights out in the driveway

in bright direct sun for about 30 minutes.

If it is a cool or overcast day you can use

a hair dryer to blow warm air through the

housing. It is important

to get them totally dry

before reinstallation

or they will fog up

almost immediately. If

it is the end of the day,

take the lights inside

with you overnight and

let them dry at room

temperature or in front

of a heating duct.

Re-installation is

the reverse of removal.

We chose to spend

15 extra minutes and

When you install the outer trim

ring, take your time and make sure the

top is hooked properly over the lip of

the light bucket. Also, carefully thread

the retaining screw into the bucket. A

cross threaded screw is no way to end a

rewarding project!

Enjoy your sparking clean headlights

and better nighttime vision!

The Art of Detailing:





(Continued from Page 6)

bounds over the consumer line in

the previous price point.

Detailer Experience: At this

level, the detailer should have a

good understanding of the cars

being worked on and a few years’

experience working for someone

else. This is a good place for a startup

detailer with previous experience

and dedication.

Level of Attention: There will

be a reasonable difference in the

appearance of the car both inside

and out. Things such as wax residue

on the exterior trim should not be

existent. The interior should have

a nice clean look and areas such as

vents, windows, carpets, upholstery

are addressed with great detail.

Liability: There should be enough

money budgeted for a good

insurance policy to cover both the

car and client. Here, you can expect

an average of $25-50K in coverage

per vehicle.

Detailer’s Future Existence: This

detailer will be around for a while.

This is a good price point to grow a

mobile business and have a steady

stream of work.

$600 price point:

• Product Quality: At this price point,

you should be getting the ProSumer

products at a minimum and edging

into the High-End product lines.

• Detailer Experience: This detailer

should have great expertise in

certain cars, by now specializing in a

niche. Great value for the consumer

as the detailer is highly skilled and

knowledgeable in the cars being

detailed.

• Level of Attention: Many aspects

of the proper detail that weren’t

addressed before should be seen.

In the interior, you should notice a

pristine ambiance. All of the surfaces,

leather, carpets, carbon fiber, etc.,

will be cleaned, conditioned and

protected. The exterior is also

properly cleaned, conditioned and

protected.

• Liability: Since we’re now catering

to a higher caliber niche, the liability


of the work is increased. A simple

mistake on a $30K car is not too

expensive to remedy. However,

with the average new Porsche,

Ferrari or Lamborghini in the five

to six-figures, ample insurance is

needed for the unforeseen incidents.

Liability coverage should be in the

$75-150K /vehicle range.

Detailer’s Future Existence: The

detailer should be focusing on

growing the company and hiring

employees. Or, consider detailing

as the career. One detailer can make

a profitable living and support a

family at this price point.

$1000 and above price point:

• Product Quality: Products are the

same as above or a higher quality

of the above mentioned. Innovative

products such as Nano Technology

can be incorporated into a routine.

These products require greater user

skills to use.

• Detailer Experience: Expert or

specialists in a particular class or

manufacturer of automobile. This

detailer will have considerable

experience detailing, but now also

has the scope of correcting paint

blemishes such as swirls, scratches,

orange peel, etc. This detailer is an

artist, not a detailer. These detailers

are usually booked out weeks and

months ahead. Their reputation is

well known and the end-result is

short of breathtaking.

• Level of Attention: Second-to-none.

A typical detail at this price point

will have taken many hours, if not

days. Areas such as the engine, door

jams, delicate substrates such as

painted interior door panel, natural

wood grain accents, and carbon

fiber, etc. are addressed with great

detail. The exterior will exhibit a

near-flawless to flawless finish, free

of imperfections. At this level, you

should be getting a legitimate detail

that will stand the test of time for

many months or years, depending

on use and care.

• Liability: These details are

performed on cars that are near or

above six-figures. A modest mistake,

such as opening the rear engine

compartment on a Ferrari Enzo, can

lead to a costly repair. If the engine

is hot and the door is opened, you

risk cracking or snapping the carbon

fiber lid. This can lead to a repair

upwards of $100K. A policy with a

$150K and above is to be expected

per vehicle. A $1 Million umbrella

is also to be expected.

• Detailer’s Future Existence: This

detailer is at the pinnacle of his/her

field. These detailers are well-known

in their circles, well-respected

amongst peers and the automotive

community and are the future of this

industry. This detailer understands

that there’s more to the business

than detailing. Playing a role in the

future of the industry as a whole

is important. This detailer is wellversed,

proficient, exhibits smart

business sense and has an excellent

future.

I hope this gives everyone a true look

as to the value of a proper detail. Within

every industry there are those that cater

to the masses and those that specialize

in understanding a client’s needs. I feel

you always get what you pay for. So the

next time you consider a detail, please

consider what you’re paying for and

weigh the risk and rewards.

Meeting by Walters Porsche

Editors Notes: (Continued from Page 5)

penned and pinned last notes and letters

along with their names on the outsides

of their coats, this being in the day

before “dog tags”. As I was doing so, I

remembered a college professor saying

the Civil War was fought over “economic

differences”, so smugly. Well I thought

as I was walking, the men charging up

that hill weren’t thinking economics as

they were going forward, that is for sure.

I would hope they’d take comfort from

the flame being passed along to a next

generation. So much for cynicism.

Passion and Porsches

And now, while we’re on the subject of

cynicism, let’s talk about Porsche. Truly

if we weren’t romantics at heart, we’d

drive some nameless econobox and shop

with only utility and transportation in

mind. However, in the OCR we drive

Porsches. I imagine that this is driven

from the passion side not the rational

side. Why else would you have a car

like the GT3? It is loud, noisy inside and

out... rides rather harshly over any kind

of broken pavement, which is mostly

what we have in Southern California

nowadays, and it has a clutch like a trucks

that is like working out with a stairmaster

in traffic. The reason of course is that it

is so darn much fun, steers like an arrow,

accelerates like a hungry man in a buffet

line and corners hard enough to throw the

latte out of the cup in the holder. Yeah,

we have the passion.

Old Bathtubs in Anaheim

This past weekend was the 356 swap

meet that has moved in recent years to

the “Phoenix Club” in Anaheim. I have

gone to this over the years, beginning

when it was a fixture at the old Dunkle

Brothers warehouse in Anaheim just up

the road. That site is now a condominium

and Dunkle Brothers have moved way

up the 5 freeway. But the swap meet is

more or less the same. It is a once per

year event and comes and goes in about

6 hours of a weekend day morning. You

see the craziest stuff change hands for

the craziest prices. I saw what looked

like a pile of rusty small diameter pipe in

one stall with a +$500 price tag attached.

Looking at the handwritten sign it was

advertised as the top works for an early

356 Convertible. Now we call them

Cabriolets, as it makes spending that

much money for a convertible more

palatable if one uses more fancy words.

So, one mans junk is another mans prize.

I don’t know if this was ever sold or if

it will go back to the end corner of the

garage looking for the one sun burnt 356

owner who can no longer put and keep

his top up in the California sun! But this

is the kind of thing one sees there along

with a veritable rolling museum of 356s

and early 911s.

This year there was a proud group

of 912s and 914s banded in the central

display area. Quite a few of the 914s

had the 6 cylinder motor badging, which

would make them rather rare. It is a fun

day and I recommend it to you for next

year at least. For lunch I had a bratwurst

and sauerkraut plate, which made me feel

quite the Tyrolean with all of those early

Austrian influenced Porsches present.

Waxing Finely in the Sun

Oh my, will this years Concours be

something? At Shady Canyon, of all

places, and for once an afternoon/evening

event as opposed to the usual “0 dark

thirty” beginning that we have grown

used to in the automotive enthusiasts

world. We’ll have a catered dinner,

which includes an evening dinner dance

so all the family will have something to

attend and enjoy. I am practicing a couple

of demi-plié so as not to be so tough on

Mrs. Cooper’s delicate toes when we

dance. As always, we need volunteers

for this affair. I think it will be a special

experience this year so be sure to let

Nicole Cooper-Boggs and Louise Bent

know that you’d like to help out. I really

look forward to seeing everyone there.

The Board Meets the Greek Way in the

Columned Confines of the Courtyard

With such wonderful weather, your

OCR board met out of doors after our

last Breakfast Club Meeting at Original

Mike’s in Anaheim. Mike’s has sofas

placed in the courtyard and it was a great

diversion to sit outdoors and conduct

club business. It is said that Plato,

Socrates and Aristotle conducted their

academe in similar surroundings, which

freed the minds and opened the spirits to

better communication. Although, it is my

fervent wish that none of us will ever be

forced to take Hemlock at any stage of

our lives. But it made for a memorable

Board Meeting, I must say.

Till our paths meet again

Well happy trails to you until our paths

cross again. I’m looking forward to more

of 2012, our shared Porsche Passion and

the friendship and camaraderie of both.

See you soon I hope!

Book Review: (Continued from Page 13)

Porsche’s ‘Calculations Department’

studying forces and accelerations on

valve train components. Because of the

small size of the Porsche engineering

staff , Mezger quickly became involved

in all aspects of engine design. After

only a few years with the company, he

worked with Ferdinand Piech (6-7 years

younger than Mezger, who came to

Porsche in 1963), to create the production

901 engine, under the overall direction of

Ferry Porsche. The engines in even the

latest 991 version of the ‘Porsche 911’,

are still based that 901 engine design

developed by Mezger in early 1963.

The narrative of Porsche and Me

is fast paced, first person, sometimes

reads like a lecture transcript, seeming

almost breathless at times. Included are

personal comments about Ferry Porsche,

Ferdinand Piech, and various racing

drivers, including Dan Gurney and Peter

Gregg.

The text is not a rigidly organized

recitation of the history of engine

development, but a somewhat streamof-consciousness

narration, jumping

around from engine model to engine

model, representative of how Porsche

always had multiple projects underway,

some of which (like the TAG Formula

1 engine and Wagner helicopter cabin),

were for outside customers.

It includes a fascinating discussion

of why it was decided to place the 906

door hinges in a different position from

the 904 hinges, as well as he evolution

of the design for the ‘Carrera (3.2)

chain tensioners’. Of note to some is

the description of how he improved the

design of the 356 heads to create the

high performance Super 90 engine.

Also discussed is the design

evolution of water cooling and

aerodynamic aids. All in all, book

provides new insight into the things that

car (and particularly engine), designers

think about. From a management sense,

there is interesting commentary about

the working environment at Porsche,

under the leadership of Ferry Porsche.

Porsche and Me has 208, 10x10

inch pages, with 15 Chapters (ranging

from Learning Years to Reflections), and

5 appendices. One appendix is a reprint

of a 17 page paper “The development of

the Porsche Type 917 Car’, presented

in 1972 to the Automobile Division of

the [British] Institution of Mechanical

Engineers. It has Forewords by Prof.Dr.

h.c. Ferdinand Piëch and Ron Dennis

CBE
