Rubystone is a colour that everyone loves...

Lovely colour but something you would want to see on a wrap so you could change it when you have had enough of people saying "I like your pink car."

Ultra for me.

The floral alcantara would go better with the purple I think.

Why not both? Split it down the middle. It would certainly be different

I was thinking split it down the middle front to back, but a bend of both colours meeting in the life would look good

I must admit - that turbo looks pretty snazzy with that paint job.

2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Thu Sep 12, 2019 12:27 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

The choice has been made. When I started to think about it I didn't mind either way, with perhaps a slight preference for the UV. After seeing both in the flesh I have come down on the side of Rubystone. My thinking is as follows.

UV appears popular on 991 GT3 and the like. I don't want people thinking that I am trying to make it look like a newer car than it is.

Rubystone is a colour which was around when my car was made, but Porsche wouldn't let it be used on most cars. It was associated with RS models and the like.

There was only one 996 GT3 mk1 in Rubystone.

Lastly, I asked my son and he prefered the Rubystone.

That said, I think with the GT3 mk1 rear wing it looks a bit much in Rubystone so I will look out for a cup or similar rear wing to break the rear up a bit.

Thanks for the input guys, it has been relatively evenly split between the people I have asked.

I now need to make the car live up to the colour Smile

I'll tip the scales - Rubystone thumbsup
Fantastic colour, and its the exact shade I saw on the 911 that made me want one when I was a lad. Still think its great, and I'll be re-painting mine in a few years to that shade when it needs doing.

I agree regards the wing. Doesn't seem to suit it in that photo earlier. I think with some black accents and may a subtle decal stripe or similar to break up the colour it will work really well.

Apologies if things seem to have been moving very slowly, there are things happening, just not much I can report on here. I do have the second prototype in for the new scavenge pump, it is a few details away from being right now, so I should be giving the go ahead for the proper one to be made later this week.







As Dammit said 'The towel rail lives again!'

@mistercorn been reading most of your journey through this post. I started another post about my m96.1 rebuild on pcgb "modified' and another popular forum (other forums are available Smile ) After @dammit posted a photo of the scavenger pump mod, I hit google to trace the photo and origin. To cut the story short ended up here!

I am intrigued and will follow your engine rebuild. I am on the stripdown of a 2nd engine I aquired and wonder how much I will salvage to make a viable rebuild. I currently run a C4 and rebuilt the top end after intermix issues 2-3 years ago - still runs like a dream.

Not sure where I will go once the engine is stripped back. My intention is realiability and initially wanted to blueprint as close as stock. Hartec's blog the 3.4 > 3.7 mod has given me 2nd thoughts, as well as flat6innovations.

I have plenty of questions about modifying cylinder heads to suit new liners, gaskets, mapping and injectors. But will wait for your future posts.

Only the last week I was also checking retro paint codes and rubystone red was top of the list. Good choice.

I'm no real expert on the preparation, but will update on what we do. After a couple of plastic prototypes ae have commissioned the first two scavenge pumps which Dammit and I will run on our standard engines for a while to test them. I've been away wiith holidays a work a lot recently so not much going on, but I have just received these shots from the body shop. It looks like he has found his tin opener.







The cage mounts can be welded in with the roof off or with the new roof on. My thinking is it might be easier with it off, any downsides to this anybody?

I assume you are thinking the chassis may flex while the roof is off and once its back on the skin may not fit so well if the chassis is stiffer with the cage fitted?

Personally I think it should be fine either way?

Can't see the chassis doing anything unless you go for a blast in it. If it was to 'flex' or 'sag' it'd have done it the moment his tin opener cut through the last bit.

That was exactly my thinking. I can't imagine it would flex but did consider it a possibility.
