Bummer, I did see new bolts advertised alongside but then I didn't realise the pins didn't have threads.

So hold the current badge, loosen the bolts off, am I right in thinking they won't drop out of their position?!

Then put new badge in and tighten back up?!

Should I buy new bolts?

Sounds like once I've got the new badge on, it's best left where it is? Started thinking I could take it off to detail the bonnet.

How have I never seen this thread!?

Cracking car there Marty, loving the tale as it progresses Thumb

Wonderful cars the Cayman's and Boxsters. Every bit a superb car in their own right.

If I had a Cayman I'd have to detail the engine bay and get a clear perspex engine cover to make it look like this:

Thanks Ragpicker, I was very lucky to have come on here and got hooked up with Tom 911v.

She certainly is a step up from my heavy front engined Golf.

I have seen those transparent covers, was even one for sale on here. Does look cool, did consider it. Having now seen my engine, looks quite a bit different to his shall we say. How much work is there involved?!

Was a strange sensation buying a car not seeing the engine, I must say.

Removed the old tired badge, detailed the bonnet (clayed/polished/sealed), then whacked on the new badge! What a difference!

Just popping this nearer to the top, now I know that my precious will have to part from my company at some point this year.

Need room for a baby seat and I’m not going Cayenne...

E92 M3 or B8 S4, I’ve been hanging out a lot with Boba over on M3 Cutters!

Little thread update, not done one in ages.

Ended up keeping her in the end. Have a Golf GT TSi for Bub duties, which I must say has impressed me somewhat!

Cayman is on a Ctek and comes out on choice days where the chances of getting a salty film on her are minimal! Days like today, 0c airctemp but bone dry roads. Such an occasion when I drive her now!

Pleased I still have her, hoping to get her down to deMort’s charity even come the Spring.

Next up is some interior refreshment, door sills, leather treatment etc.

Had Iain diagnose some diagonal arms knocking via proxy so took her down to Precision. As always, amazing customer service and always good to see Iain.

He was of course right and he fixed up my front arms and a steering rod. Car feels tip top, he checked over my oil filter that I retained after dropping the oil myself at the end of last summer. Clean bill of health!

Need to crack on with a little interior refresh now the weather is returning.

Drove their 986 S courtesy car, what an eye opener, those cars our fantastic, had my first taste of driving a car with the roof down. When and if I need to move my Cayman on, I am seriously thinking about getting one and making it into a track car.

Cheers, Mark!

I love her deeply but having recently become a Dad she's not getting used. I've kept her for as long as I can, but fear I should let her go to another good home.

Plan is to get a leggy 986 and make it a track weapon, that way I still have a bit of Pork but free up a bit of money towards a family runaround.

Congrats! I've got 3 weeks to go until my 1st arrives Smile Not sure how I'll feel once I stop using certain cars even more than I do but lets see.

I don't think you'll be too upset with a 986 in place of the Cayman, at least you've had a taste with the Precision car. I love the 986, great fun, a seriously undervalued car.

Congratulations! Exciting times, defo hits your passions a bit hard.

It's funny, in my case my missus has gone from no hobbies/interests or passions to now being obsessed with our bundle of joy and all associated admin haha. Which of course is the way it should be, just funny to see her have something she's in to.

Whereas Im having to cut down on my passions. Laughing

If I can give one bit of advice..... 'Tomme Tippee Perfect Prep Machine'.

Think the Boxster is a goer, sell my beloved and hopefully pocket 10 bags, use the change to get me a 986 for ragging.

Shame that she has to go Marty, but, been there, done that and have the T-shirt, I had to sell my Esprit for the deposit for my first house Sad

I will gladly contribute to your 986 fund if you want to part with your old bonnet badge, I`m after and old one to paint up in Gulf colours for my 996 Grin

Guess I could class it as a casualty of growing up. She’s just not getting used as she should. Gone from being wary of putting miles on the clock to setting reminders over the winter to get out in her (on cherry picked days of course).

I’ll drop you a PM about the badge Thumb

Like Ragpicker said earlier in the thread “How have I not seen this before”.

Great work matey. Exactly the sort of little touches I go for and those wheels are my favourite 987/997 wheels.
I’m loving the bike rack. Thinking of getting one for mine at some point.

Anyway keep up the good work. Cool

Beginning to tart her up ready for the new prospective owner who is coming to view in a few days.
