Frustrating day, just 3 hrs without the rain, and then the bleeding (new) jack packs up, so just the fronts finished 😡

Excellent. What did you use to clean the silver hats and the arches?

And what colour did you do the wheels?

Simple green degreaser for the arches, white vinegar/baking soda for the hats Thumb Wheels are satin grey.

I was careful with the patented ‘solution’ (think mix) rubbing it on and not getting any on the ceramics (the inter web suggests anything other than soap and water will destroy them Question ) so other than that I used soap and water Grin

I found an cotton old shirt to use to aid in this process Surprised

So nearly six months into ownership, and ohmygod only a Racing yellow 991 GT3 has tempted me, and unless mrs sponge, associated children, and house are binned I can’t afford it, so Herman yellow moves into record territory and the next in a long line of anticipated tasteful mods Thumb and honestly Herman’s appeal is as great as day 1.

1. Side decal, I can’t decide. I may try it as it’s a cheapo, and may look good with the new grey alloys? Anyone know of a photoshop app inter web thing to try the look?

2. Seats, I’m looking to retrim with yellow stitching, has anybody got/had JUST the seats done this way, ie the rest of the interior stitching left grey? And an idea of the approx cost for same?

Seatbelts and steering wheel TBC Grin

seatbelts are only £35 each to be re webbed in yellow its a nice cheap little mod , if your doing the steering wheel its got to have a yellow strip at 12 o'clock , side decals some look great other naff have you looked at the lower door decal only "Herman 911" in a Porsche font maybe not acid green though Grin Grin
