What absolutely brilliant work!
The finish is amazing Cool
I bet you've doubled the value from what it would have been from the barn, at least!

I wish I had your patience Embarassed

Excellent handiwork, both inside and outside. Thumb

Also shows the quality of Porsche build/engineering in that everything has come up so well once all the grime has gone.

Amazing progress. I fear your widget is incorrectly positioned though - should go in the wiper blade under the arm in a specially sized opening.

Strange, seems to fit very well and same as the middle pic on Type911 site on how it should be fitted?

https://estore-sslserver.eu/type911shop.co.uk/epages/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766/Products/6975

How very embarrassing Question

I know. I feel bad for you, but better to get the humiliation out of the way early Dont know

Have a look at the third picture, taken from PET. The widget goes further along the wiper sits below the wiper arm, I guess so it can't fall off. I'll take a photo tomorrow if still unclear Thumb

IIRC, Jonttt installed PIAA wipers, which don't have the dedicated place for a widget. OPC supplied wipers have a special place. Never meet your heroes widgets Dont know

God knows Floor Don't even recall drinking THAT much over the weekend. What I meant to say was:
