Thanks Scholester Thumb

Dom, yes really chuffed. Took a while and has caused a few sleepless nights Grin No it's been in the country for a few year, bought through Paul at GT Classics

Chris, the cryo blasting was done while the car was in bits, liners removed etc so the preparation work was already done; process took about 5-6 hours. Yes I've had a clear wax put on since. I tried to prevent 'mission creep' setting in, but unfortunately it took hold big time Embarassed


I spent two days under mine coating the car and my eyelashes in clear wax lol! Worth it afterwards for ease of cleaning etc. That is stunning above and below. My dream car you must be chuffed.

Thanks Chris.

Tim, here's a pic of the Bilstein struts



EDIT: I have found out since they are original struts rebuilt by Bilstein in 2004 - damper test passed by Center Gravity -

GT4, yes i'm really pleased with the finish Smile

Another of the mission creep items has been replacing the door pulls and belts as they were pretty faded (originals kept of course)

edit pics re added

Multiples of 25 bags I'd wager.

BTW - Very nice indeed Thumb

So there we have it!

The infamous "25 bags" is not so much a limit of valuation as a unit of valuation.

Possibly even arbitrarily divisible too Question

(as in "it cost me 1/357th of 25 bags to fill my car with 102 octane")

It was a fair bit more than 25 bags, let's put it that way.

Thanks Zingers and Mads thumbsup

It does look really clean, I thought it may be one of the Japanese cars.

Paul Mc is a good guy to buy from, he knows these cars.

On the road, standard 993RS suspension is way more compliant and effective than 964RS, that is why so many owners fit the 993RS front struts to the 64RS.
Unless you intend to use slicks, you don't need to "upgrade" to cup springs, which then spoils the performance on a B road anyway.

I would have thought about 8- 9 of your 25bags would be reasonable in the current environment. Wink

It may not have outright power, but balance and amazing brakes dictate the driving style.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts after you have driven it a few more miles, have fun!
