Are they 18"s or 19"s Chief Question

The reason I ask is because when ChrisW refubed my wheels, his loaners were 19"s and I didn`t really notice any loss of ride quality over my 18"s Very Happy

I think it looks fantastic! Very pleased for you! I actually think they look nicer than standard Carrera 997's from most angles.

So are the 'Sports' from the 987.2 era I take it?!

It's been a while, but finally I have had some time to spend on 'Amber Alert' instead of spending all my time on 'Project Blue Book'....
After participating in the RS trackday at Oulton Park on Friday I thought it was and ideal time to jump in and get the paint sorted on the P.U,s.



This is how it looked on Friday, but by Saturday...









So by Saturday afternoon it was all tucked back up in the Potting Shed.
I brought the P.U's back home to remove all the plastics and trim ready for paint. I have a large collection of mat black plastic and wiry bits!





I then spent some time scrubbing and cleaning them with hot soapy (Washing up liquid) water. I don't use anything with any chance of silicone in as it can freak the paint process.



So all in the van and delivered down to the paintshop.
I will give a more detailed report and photo's of the re-assembly which might help others when doing this.

The lower 'Eyebrows' i'm painting Piano Black. The wheels will be refurbished whilst i'm at it as the barrels are looking rough. I will most likely do these GT Orange instead of the factory silver. More of this later.
All the best,
Chief

It certainly looked pretty good thrashing around the circuit, I cant believe it needed repainting.

Its normally my car with all the bits off after a trackday! Sad

Those wheels are going to look fab mate Grin

Do the PU`s need paint or just the laquer sorting out, the paint looked fine to me Question

Unfortunately there is no cure at the moment. There has been a lot of research conducted but funding has been withdrawn, so Whooo hooooo Grin

So paint is completed and time for it all to go back together.



I've gone with piano black on the boomerangs.



The fit is really tight if you spend some time with it.



And the same here.







The mesh Zunsport grills fit nice and tight, again if you take your time.

This one reminded my of an angry Japanesse transformer Grin





I removed all the bumpy nonsence from the front number plate area. I intend to use a sticky number plate once i've mopped out the paint.



Now I think it looks like a very happy Ninja Turtle!



I think painting the fog light surround piano black works well with the wrapped light.





The wheels on at last.



So just been out for a hour trying the new Michelin pilot Sport 4's. Very quiet compared to the Potenzers and much more grip. The sidewalls are very agressive. Loving them so far Thumb

Kirsh....Chief over and out...... puh
