It would provide a good base for your next trip to LeMans livery.

I've already had ideas about the next racing livery and it was the Salzburg livery in blue.



I also think it will take the 2018 Le Mans Rothmans livery well.

2001 Porsche 996 Targa

Bit of an update and going over old ground but I have now completed the door mirror at the third attempt and the drivers door at the second attempt. Should hopefully be plain sailing from now on.

I'm getting more used to working the vinyl and how it need heat or not and how much to stretch or shrink it.

Going to have a good crack at it this weekend.

A couple more days and it should be complete, I have just the front and rear bumpers and both side skirts to do and then obviously fit all the parts I had removed need refitting. The bumpers may be a challenge but I will do a couple of inlays to make life easier, I may not have enough material to do both again?









I did the drivers side front wing yesterday but it split in two places, again due to the cold, it split on the edges at the top and wheel arch so I rolled out what I have left over and taking into account I still need 2.5m for the bumpers, I will have 4m left. So I have decided to do the O/S wing again, the splits are not too noticeable but I would rather have it looking as good as I can and assume this will get inspected by folk at any future meets Embarassed

I also need to do the rear pop up spoiler again, for some reason I got a load of air bubbles appear after a couple of days from completing this. I have read this can be caused by the panel not being clean enough or the material being too tight and springing back up, but I also heard that the plastic can give off a gas even with paint over it, I'll do it again and see what happens, although I have obviously got to grips with this vinyl since starting the wrap and may be able to work it a little better at the second attempt?

The weather is a challenge because the panels are cold, the air temp in the garage is warm but once I have heated the vinyl up and placed it in a rough position its stone cold again due to the panels being cold so I permanently have to heat it before moving it and only having two hands doesn't help. Really am enjoying doing this though.

You're a brave man and good on you for having a crack yourself. The issue of heating and cooling of the wrap is a real challenge in this weather. I had a stab at putting some carbon wrap in the section between the exhaust on mine to resemble a GTS look and it was difficult to say the least. A little tear also happened.
Looking forward to the finished product, keep up the good work.

Last panel being done today, the rear bumper and the biggest one at over 2.5m long, took a little help with someone on the heat gun while I manipulated the vinyl but took under 2 hours to get this far with it. I'll trim it and finish off the number plate recess on Sunday, then I need to seal some vulnerable edges with acrylic lacquer, like the wheel arches and bumpers before I take it out in this weather.







It been a bit of a mission to get this far and there are a couple of panels I want to perfect or do again but I just want to see it out in daylight at the moment so these can wait a little longer to get right.

It'll be finished today, apart from some tidying up of bits I'm not 100% happy with,, but not sure I'll make Bicester.

Fair play to ya. I’ll go at most things but definitely wouldn’t have the patience for that. I’m not keen on the midnight blue of my own car although I’ve never actually seen it in good light. I’d like to go for a different colour but not sure and it’s way down the list. It’ll be great to see yours out. Nice to see how the colour works out
