How are your getting on with the brackets?


Hi Paul. The hinges? I haven't touched the design in over a year as 2015 has been a bit crazy on the work front. I should have thought on as I have been bored rigid over Christmas, I could have had the design finished. One for 2016 now.

All the best.

On a separate subject, I plan to change the wheels to Fuchs soonish but I need to get my D90s refurbished as I plan to keep them (i'm one of the few who likes D90s ). Who thinks a gold finish would look good against the red?

Might look ok? I've got a set in gloss black if you want to try them and see what they look like?

Cheers Ian, I'll have a think about that.

A question for those that have replaced your suspension with b6/H&R set up. I assume that I would be crazy not to replace the OEM top mounts (front and rear) at the same time as the dampers and springs. Seems like a no-brainer to me but thought I'd check.


Thanks


Steve

I found the rears were fine, and only the nearside front was bad, but it is up to you. Found the same on a friends 964, so it depends if you want to spend the cash Smile

A few pics from the body shop. Most of the rot is on the nearside but Garry is doing a full sweep looking for blisters, anything found will be sorted.

The nearside rear bumper damper mount is shot so that is being replaced, as is the rear side rear light housing.

I have agreed with Garry that it will now be a glass out respray rather than localised painting.

Below - Rear damper mount, old and new





Below - front wing. This rot is from a previous repair.



Below - Rear light housing and forward of rear wheel arch.

Cheers Chief. Thankfully, other than the damper mount, it's mostly cosmetic and not structural.

BY the way, your car popped up on Facebook the other day. I think Frank (Black Betty) posted it. It's looking rather splendid 👍

Steve, just noticed that your body guy has taped the CAT outlet up. Not many would bother, so 'Good skills' to him Thumb Thumb Thumb

A few recent images of the work in progress, it's starting to come together now.



A bit of bad news, I've heard that the car has sprung a fuel leak which I guess (i've not been to look yet) from the description is from the tube as it bends up toward the engine - same as Chris' recent leak. I noticed the tubes looked a bit rusty recently and had it on my to-do list. On a positive my friend has just opened a classic car restoration business (RS Classic Cars and Services) so I'll get it repaired there as I'll be able to get it up on the lift - I'll transport it there from the body shop.

Steve

Hi Steve,

Good to see that Garry is making progress. Hoping to get mine in soon for the same treatment.

Now that you are going full glass out are you also removing the sunroof and painting the top? I only ask as I am looking at almost identical work and the only thing I can't decide on is if I should do the whole shell or just go up to the windows.

Are you finding more rot in there than you expected? Worried now that mine may be worse than expected.

Cheers.

Major surgery there, but she's in safe hands.

Coming along nicely Steve Smile

Last discussion I had decent discussion with Garry the sunroof was coming out but I'll go with whatever he suggests is best.

Not really. The only surprise was the top of the NSR light box, last time I was in there I didn't see the rot. The impact bumper damper mount rot and NSR sill area and NSF wing was well known to me. Now is the time to sort it all so the more Garry finds the better if you know what I mean.

I hope to see yours in the queue soon, feel free to poke around mine Surprised

Hi Steve, I dropped a light in for him so he could get the position of the light holder right, the repair he did looks mint.

Thomas, the roof is the only part of mine that hasn't been painted and you can't tell.

Thanks for that Ian, I got a surprise when Garry pinged me the photos as I removed the lights before I had delivered the car. I did guess the lights were yours Thumb

Had a peak at your car today Steve, it's looking good. Lots of good work being carried out.

Hoping mine will be in soon now that Garry has taken a look at it.

Cheers Thomas,

I managed a quick visit today to check out the fuel leak, from my brief inspection it seems it is not corroded tube but a connection at the rear of the engine - where the tubes join. I'll check it in more detail when I get more time.

I also had a peek at Ian's 928, ready for paint I heard. It also popped up on Facebook today.

A few more images of the ongoing body works.

After these pictures were taken the windows were removed and, guess what....a bit more rot found. The driver side front lower corner of the screen is the worst (not as bad as some I've seen thankfully) and will need new metal. I've bought a repair panel for Garry to cut a bit from, that should arrive mid-week.

I think I may be about a week or two weeks away from getting the car back.
