Since I am looking at a brake upgrade, I thought I would source some uprights to make the job of checking spacers easier. I managed to get a pair of fronts for £70 and have now picked up this lot for £55.



They are even clean already.

As a bonus, you will soon have collected all the parts to build another 996(!)

Too close to the truth for comfort. I have a full spare set of suspension and brakes, plus engine and gearbox, and many interior parts. If anybody sees a good rolling shell come up for sale, please don't tell me about it.

If you don't need the rear hubs let me know as someone cross-threaded the caliper bolt on mine and it needs cutting off to change the rear brakes in the near future Thumb

The hubs are the one part I really do need. Keep your eye on eBay though, they do come up for decent money from time-to-time.

Masking material all removed, clips refitted, although there are still a few more to fit when they arrive. Subframes refitted. Need to bleed the brakes again next.



The cross piece has been refitted so that the car can be put back on it's wheels without the engine fitted. It is strongly advised that this is done and I can see why. There would be a lot of force trying to bend the subframes outwards without it.

Now that the rear is back together I can test fit the new wheels. It does look like they stick out very slightly further, but I plan to have the arches rolled so hopefully all OK.



New wheel from above


Standard GT3 wheel from above


Bear in mind that the alignment is a mile off.

Bleed the brakes again...…



This photo might not look like much. But anybody who has fitted a new OSR brake pipe will know what is involved!!




All the wheels are now fitted. Need to remove the dashboard and reattach the handbrake.

I didn't want a big contrast on the stitching for the new instrument binnacle cover, so went with a white thread.

I'm currently looking for a supplier of paisley alcantara, inspired by MC's sterling work.

For the work I am doing on the instruments, I am reading the voltage from the coolant and oil temperature sensors, converting the voltage in mV using a third order polynomial to give me a temperature with a resolution of 0.1 degrees C, then using another 3rd order polynomial to convert from the required temperature to the required voltage to drive the display. This is then output using a 10 bit PWM output.



Inputs and output are working, so time to put in some equations.

I am converting the readings to a real temperature for output on RS232 and CAN, just in case I ever want to log them.

The wheels will obviously tuck in when the weight goes back on. It’ll be tight but should look first class Thumb

I am hoping that I can gain a tiny bit more if needed with the adjustable suspension arms. It should be on its wheels tomorrow so I'll see how the GT3 wheels tuck in.

So my old wheels were 1mm further out than them and there was zero rubbing on standard rear arches. That was 18's mind you.

The last of the replacement clips have been fitted.









With the driveshafts being fitted but not attached to the gearbox they need to be stopped from flapping around, so I taped a plastic bag around them and fitted them inside a cardboard tube and parts of a box to support them.



I did consider removing them but thought that not having the bearings supported properly would not be a good idea, this was confirmed by somebody I asked who knows a lot more than me.

The car is resting on its wheels for the first time in about 9 months.

Coolant temperature input and output voltages:



Along with RS232 data:



Repeat for oil temperature:




Next on this is to make the display switch between them on a short button press.
