Just received the car - it's in showroom condition all around - absolutely pristine!

Bonuses include full clear bra (wings and nose)

And 18 way seats (immaculate) I thought it had 4 way!

I've been down to my local Porsche specialist and they will come back to me this weekend with a quote to restore this beauty....

They loved it!

In all fairness, it received more attention than I had envisaged

I can see why there is a market for this stuff Grin

As long as the maths adds up financially then I think this is a great idea. That will be stunning when you've finished with it. I admire your out of the box thinking.

To be fair, I'm warming to it with the bodykit.

Probably makes me a bad person. Embarassed

To be fair the only part I really dislike are the rear quarters. They look very 'stuck' on to me.

It looks like the result of a drunken one night stand between a porsche and a modern day transformer toy. Laughing

How much did the maniac spend on that kit? Any ideas?

Personally ,I would lose the side rockers as they are ugly with that rear qtr. paint the rest body colour to lose the strange two tone supra look and it would look quite nice and different . But then I like mods, but they should sell easily as there are as many guys that like different/personal as there are purists. good luck getting it how you want it for you to enjoy. Thumb

It should be easy enough to go back to stock, but you'll just have to see what that kit goes for on ebay (maybe half the original cost?), or maybe some other 991 forum, hopefully you'll be able to break even. And then start the proper mods...

New porsche 20" classic wheels on (bought someone's spare winter set which were basically brand spanking new) ☺️ Body kit sold and car booked in for mid Jan to revert back to stock. Will have managed to cover all expenses if it runs smoothly 🎉

Attached is a picture of my new wheels being calibrated 👯😎😈👅

This could be a spin off series 'Supercar SOS'

Floor

Definitely remove the side cheeks/skirts, and go back to the standard rear lower bumper valence.

P.S. could just about live with the front end as it is

Certainly going the right way. Thumb

Any idea yet of the final cost to do the conversion ?

Selling any of the bits to offset the cost ?

bumpers have so many parts and locating them all has been hit and miss price wise.

The rear grill (engine cover) has been the biggest problem - it has an underside and an oversize. Those two pieces are costing in excess of £700 alone new from porsche.

I sold the bidy kid including wheels for £4,700 in Ebay

The new wheels cost £1750 and so far the work carried out is costing somewhere in the region of £3k

So barring further problems, I'll be quits - better than I expected!
