Hi,

Having registered to reply to another thread it seems rude to not say hello.

I've had my 924 for 5 years after a spur of the moment Ebay purchase. Even though it had tax and MOT the car had clearly been neglected for some time so over the last 5 years I've pulled most of the car apart and cleaned or replaced\upgraded everything along the way. Now looking respectable and fun to drive Very Happy

Photo from the PCGB Porsche at Christmas event last weekend.

Russell

Welcome to 911uk Russell.

There's a few of us on here that have/have had a 924.

I can't believe I sold mine 31 years ago. Surprised

Cheers everyone for the welcome 👍

The cars alpine white from factory but I fancied a change so vinyl wrapped the bottom half red as per the turbo two tone factory option. A few weeks locked away in the garage with a hairdryer and a few rolls of red vinyl gave the desired effect.

Totally reversible so I can put it back to factory which is important. Anything mechanical that's come off have also been polished to its a bit "blingy" under the bonnet.

Great to drive when I get the chance and makes the daily 3 series a bit dull/disconnected! Next outing in January for Bicester Sunday scramble.

Yes, warm welcome from another 924 owner (just keeping it warm you understand, for my son!). They're such a simple pleasure to drive and maintain. Enjoy.

Cheers everyone. I'm really impressed with the forum here, good to see it busy and not dying due to social media as per most other forums.

Few other pics - I've had moment when taking parts off that are aluminium and thinking 'that'll polish up well' which gets strangely addictive.

FB is quite comical sometimes when it comes to technical advice.
