PostPosted: Sat Apr 08, 2017 10:54 pm    Post subject: Barn Find Refurbishment Reply with quote

Well not quite 'found' but kept in a barn for a fair few years while my friend carried out a major building project.
He has owned the car since 2001 and now he has a garage again he wants me to give his 993 Cab a full refurbishment.

I thought it would be of interest to show what an improvement could be made.

I've got my work cut out on this one but as a big 993 fan I know it will be worth it Cool

Note. It will not be going up for sale afterwards.

A big tin of elbow grease on order then?! Laughing

The interior looks worse than the exterior. Did he leave it stored with the roof down?

Watching with interest to see how this shapes up. Thumb

What's the process for an engine that's been sitting that long.

Change oil/filters, check/change plugs, hand turn while plugs are out for a few revolutions, remove DME relay and spin on the starter till oil pressure builds??

What's the consensus?

Good luck with the refurb

I almost thought this was going to be a 'George Eaton' car but you've actually seen it Grin

Speak to an expert before you attempt to start it Thumb

If he's into a full refurb, why not go all in an do a speedster conversion

GrahamPM's blue speedster is one of the best 993 projects I've seen undertaken.

Starting with the dirtiest bits, first up is the engine bay.

Copious amounts of Truck Wash then a damn good go with the pressure washer ... Er no!

Careful application of All Purpose Cleaner (APC) working small areas at a time, cold water rinse, blow dried and then ACF50 applied to engine bay and electrical connections.

That's a transformation and a half already! Cool

It's pretty amazing what can be achieved using the right products.

I used to tell my first wife that.

Never went down well....this could go on but i will stop there.

A very full day including removing some of the bigger parts to make cleaning easier. Air box, heater pipes etc. Also made it easier to replace the knackered hood shocks!

Now moved on to remove 23 years of built up crud under the wheel arches.

These 993s are amazing! I don't know of many cars that would come up this good after 23 years and over 80k miles.

Note: discs will be replaced and callipers still to be painted.
