New reg number...

Understated class is what you've created there. Love the simple 911 badge rather than the current trend of war and peace. With the clear lenses, it finishes it off perfectly.
A suggestion would be to wrap the section in between the exhaust tail pipes in black like a GTS and then I think you can do no more.
Jib well done Thumb


Thumb Satin black wrap on rear bumper was my next job when it gets a bit warmer.

Considered faux carbon. I learned afterwards doing mine that carbon wrap in st as elastic as some of the others frustrated

How does the saying go - "Blue and green should never be seen, unless it's Titanium and Viper Green."

crank position sensor
cooling fan from the front which again should be made of solid gold based on the price

Sports seats.

They need a little TLC and my leather backed comfort seats are in better condition but the Sports versions are nicer to look at, and provide more lateral support when you sit in them - so they will be staying once they are given a thorough clean and treatment.

What have people used to clean and recolour a discoloured side bolster?

Also would like to make them electrically heated. Did post a question but it got moved to a 996 forum so I haven’t had any feedback who has done a retrofit seated seat conversion on a 997 yet.

Set of nice condition black 997 leather backed comfort seats anyone? Very Happy
