I assume it was the reference to nephrite green. I couldn’t see any!

Ah - bad photo you can see the dash and trim is two-tone, so some bits are metropole blue and other bits are nephrite green. Will get a better picture when I drive the car on the weekend Smile

Managed to adjust the handbrake mechanism on Saturday - easy job all in all though the first time I've raised the rear of the 911.

I will put the jack stands on the factory jack points next time but didn't have anything to cushion them from the jack stands to used the cross member for the stands instead.

Nice colour. I'm new on here myself. Got some great tips and feed back from members. Read through some of the members projects for some first class info. Some one here will have an answer for virtually any question you could have.

Right time I did some work on this car Very Happy

I bought the Miltek Cup (cat back) system in order to replace my original silencers and also have the flange gaskets ready to tackle the cat to manifold flange leak.

So I started last weekend and got the car up on my Sealey plastic ramps. Everything came apart pretty easily, the only complicated bit was removing the air box to get to the lambda sensor wiring and then working out how the cable connectors came apart.

All but one of the nuts on each exhaust flange had completely disintegrated so all I had to do was saw off the remaining blob with a hacksaw and then the flange was free. I borrowed the neighbours angle grinder to get the cat to silencer clamps off. The silencer mounts came off relatively easy with a combination of penetrating fluid, socket with extensions and a ratchet wrench.

The studs on the cat flange were completely welded together so I dropped them off at a local garage to see if they could free them up. Whilst I was there they offered to remove the lambda probes too so I could put new grease on the threads.

Unfortunately I called him today and he said that he'd had to smash the lambda probes to get them removed. Needless to say I was pretty pissed and told him that he should have contacted me before destroying them as I'd also not wanted them to be removed in the first place. I received an apology but now I have to wait for new lambda probes as Opie are awaiting stock and cp4l are showing 3-4 days. So now my original plan of getting the exhaust refitted on Saturday has gone out of the window.

He used a pretty interesting way of freeing the studs from the flange by cutting a slit into the flange for each stud to release the pressure.

Now I'm just waiting on replacement lambda sensors frustrated









The silencers removed were pretty rotten and I can hear stuff loose inside if I give them a shake. No wonder it sounded pretty bad with the corrosion so bad that the fasteners had mostly decomposed!



Can't wait to get the new silencers on! Before I removed the cats I started the engine without the silencers just as an experiment - now that was loud!
