Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, but been on the 993 forum for a couple of months, albeit mostly just to try and defend a 993 I butchered!

I carried out the restomod of a hpi clear, totally standard and original '81 SC last year and wondered if there would be any interest in the project.

I have plenty of pics of the process and alterations.

Here are a couple of pics of the finished article.

Thanks. Wanted it to be recognisably a SC, just a bit cleaner and less cluttered. The best mod was def the Fabspeed muffler and cat bypass. Sounded brilliant.

Basically took it to bits, resprayed it and then put it back together minus the bits I didn't like. Added a few bits I did like and left it that.

As follows:
Strip down to basic shell
Respray (no real repairs required)
Out back together. Deleted front splitter, rear spoiler, side skirts, number plate mount, rear bumper over riders, rear wiper.
Added smoked front indicators to blend with bumper rubber strip, Fabspeed exhaust, side decals, wider wheels and toyo tyres, new brakes and lowered and set up suspension.
New/ vintage momo Indy wheel with patina, new stereo.
Cleaned up engine bay and blasted fan.

That's was it really.

Kept all the original bits so could be put back to 100% original.

Outlander,

Excellent result , mods are very subtle and suit the car....

Just goes to show that a slightly modded car can be a successful project....

Love it. Those clean lines are so nice

Glad you resisted a Ducktail spoiler ! Grin Seems current fashion at moment frustrated

So you are handy with the spanners yourself , or did you use garage(s) ?
Is it a keeper, or you selling and doing another project Question

Hi, thanks for the comments.

I don't do anything myself, beyond the finishing touch type stuff. I use Professionals for the hard work.

I just do them as projects and sell on to fund the next. I loved every minute of doing this car and its new owner is very happy with it.

It is probably my favourite car. It was such a pleasure to drive and had such character. I'm sure you all know what I mean about impact bumper models just being so much fun.
