Brave man, looks like the risk was worth taking. What did it all end up setting you back?

Looking good! I especially like the black PCM surround. Might be a good DIY job for me! I need to clean up the rocker switches anyway.

Looking good, great result.

Why the Cayman steering wheel? Love my steering wheel in mine, but I do have the multi function one.....

You must be a happy bunny. That's one fine looking motor car, and if it runs even half as well as it looks...
