Would you belive it a sidewall puncture first time out with a 6 month old tyre.
Geo checked at 9m only one adjustment needed to o/s rear toe.
Off to see Jim on Monday for a regass and to persuade him to drag his 993 out of hibernation. Looks like a good crowd of 911UKers will be at Oulton on Friday. Removing the engine bay sound insulation has made little difference to cabin noise, perhaps the varioram manifold dampens induction noise to a degree?

Great thread, bad luck on the tyre! Just reading through, a couple of things come to mind, one is on keeping alloy suspension arms looking good, with mine I used a crystalline wax of a type used on outdoor statues. My cousin is a metal finisher and says that is what the British Museum does. It was a few years ago and I will be under the car (hopefully) next week so I will have a look and see how they are getting on.

The sill that is rusts is always the LHS one as far as I can tell. The oil cooler pipes keep the other one toasty warm. I guess you have been patch repairing. Do you rustproof after with something like Tectyl ML? I wonder if a whole sill replacement is the way to go. Mine is rusting also. I hit the rust with some Tectyl ML through the trim holes on the underside of the sill and even went as far as injecting the exterior bubbles with the same (using a hypodermic needle) once I had forced the water out.

One of my chassis legs needs doing. Know anyone in the SEast who is reasonable and good?

All the best
