Haha, yeah I think you may be right. I'm not quite finished yet, but getting close.

I'll probably just leave this thread be now, as everyone is probably quite bored of hearing about it by this stage.

All the best!

Thanks, yes it was a previous project. It was a 81 SC. bought it locally as a totally standard car is reasonable condition. Always mot'd and well maintained, very solid and good to drive. Paint wasn't great due to age and also having had a poor quality respray a few years ago.

I did a bit of a restomod with it. Essentially, I wanted something that was very clearly a SC, but a bit cleaner looking with a bit of a vintage racer feel.

Stripped it down for respray, ie all doors, trim, bumpers etc, there was just a small bit of rust to one sill, which was easily welded. I then had it painted and put back together, but let of the front splitter, side sill covers (ironically for this thread), rear spoiler, rear fog lights and rear over riders. The fitted wider Fuchs and some other nice wee touches. It looked brilliant in the metal and actually very different from the original, despite all the changes actually being quite small and easily reversed. I also fitted a fabspeed cat bypass and muffler which sounded absolutely awesome.

I sold it to a young guy who was meant to be buying a house, but did the right thing in the end. He also got all the original bits so he could put it back to standard in the future.

The are photos on my Facebook page, but I'm not sure what the rules are here about directling people there. There are photos of my stuff on my Instagram page, which has absolutely no selling information, just photos, so may be permissible?

Cheers- that looks fantastic!

I wish, wish, wish I'd kept my 3.2. Px'd it for a then new E36 M3 Evo. Madness.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, eh? Must have seemed like a good idea at the time? Think their day might be coming though.
If we could go back, we would probably all go an buy 993 turbos. Actually browsed this forum the other night. Went to the end and worked a back a few pages to see what sort of values were being discussed then. I saw a mention of a 993 turbo s for around £54k, think it was 2003/4. People were talking about the new 997 coming out and the impact on used 911 prices. I was still at uni then, so bit of a moot point as £54k was still unaffordable to me then, but still funny to think of what is now a legend for sale at a dealer for that and it being referred to as just a 'used 911'.

The 'one that got away' for me was a black RHD 964RSL, 8k miles, 2 owners I looked at, in 2003 I think.

£31,995.

An enjoyable read over coffee this morning. The SC is very subtle just right.

I remember the red sc when it was on ebay as I always search nearest first and it came up at the top of the page. Could I ask what bodyshop you used to paint the sc? I am not too far away from you down in the Borders.

I always use Scotspray body shop in Musselburgh. Small family business, but hugely skilful and efficient service. Have yet to find anything they can't do.
