Tried out some new Auto Finesse detailer and plush 1400grm microfibres which I bought at 911UK national meet.
Very impressed with both products the detailer is perfect used as a drying aid and keeps the wax topped up after a wash.




Attended a local Motorsport evening yesterday. Always a good event and nice to meet up with old friends.

Time for a little update.

Over the summer I got in touch with Samco hoses as I wanted to explore the resonator blank off and intake hose mod.
Samco didn't make a hose for the 997 so I supplied them with an OEM hose so that they could make up the necessary tooling.
I wanted a Samco hose because they are simply the market leader in motorsport quality silicon hoses, they supply hoses to WRC, F1 and many other Motorsport applications so quality in guaranteed.
A few weeks later my new hose arrived complete with new clips and a bung. It fitted perfectly and slipped on like a glove.
I decided to go for black to keep in theme with the rest of the engine bay and retain that OEM feel.
With the resonator now blanked off you get a little more induction noise at a lower RPM so it sounds a bit nicer Grin
Samco are now going to offer this hose kit to the open market and I'll post details of this in another thread soon but for now this is only 997 with one fitted.

An interesting point, some companies are offering the 996 hose as a replacement for 997 but they are different as shown here. The 997 hose is the back one.
I tried a 996 hose It won't fit but I believe other inferior hoses may fit as they are more flexible and have more give.
You can make your own minds up about this.

Kev looks great mate, I have looked everywhere for a similar hose option for the 997.2 It just doesn't seem to be made, you cant grab an off the shelf hose as on the gen2 one end is round the other more oval so it needs to be a purpose made custom designed hose . I use my car daily so cant lend you my induction hose to give to Samco to take a design from and then return. Do you know anyone with a gen2 induction hose they are not using that Samco could borrow or maybe someone on here has a spare one for a gen2 or a gen2 thats laid up for the winter that you could borrow the hose off for a few weeks.

The shape of the hose won't matter as they just make the tooling to suit.
Getting hold of a hose for a template is the difficult bit, we will have to keep looking or see if we can borrow one.
Might be worth a call to Brookspeed, they might have a car in at some point that's crash damaged.

Can you find out how long Samco would need the loan hose for to make the tooling Thumb

Send me a picture so I can forward it to them so they can understand the amount of work involved.
I've no idea what a Gen 2 hose looks like nooo

Kev, let me know if you every wish to try out polishes and waxes on a basalt black 911. I'd happily drive to the valleys.

Yours always looks so immaculate I feel guilty every time I see it.

Thanks Nige but I'm not doing anything here that you or anyone else couldn't do yourself.
It's just a bit knowledge, product and elbow grease Grin
Definitely don't feel guilty, if you enjoy your car thats all that counts .

It amazes me how you keep your car looking that well. I’m playing catch up and it’s currently getting some much needed attention. Maybe after this I’ll butter mine up.
