oh wow. Well done.

I did consider returning back to oem and either keeping them as is or doing red laminex or something similar, however i fear it would look pants so either oem or all red oems.

I am kinda done with the led jobbies ( came with the car along with oems )


I still like the OEM lamps tbh. Might chop and change when I fancy a different look.

I loved the Dectanes I fitted to my 996. But these were added in my attempt to take 10 years off the age of the car.

However, I love the non LED status of the 997.1. Kinda retro having candle bulbs.

Yeah. Common option tick for Turbos,




& GT3’s & GT2’s it seems.






No GT3 badge. Ermmmm. About that. It might be a cleverly cropped photo.
Haven’t actually got around to moving it across 20mm to add the C.

Uncropped photo. Guilty as charged. But I did promise.....so it will be converted to GT3C very soon.




(Does it make it any less offensive that I have the slightly more discreet smaller GT3 badge from the RS & 991? No!? Didn’t think so)

Off to Bicester tomorrow am. Looking forward to another drive out & about.

Car all washed & forecast looks kind so might even look clean still when we get there.

Not sure what the PCGB members will think of my new addition to the rear? I think they might cancel my membership for inventing a new model 🤣



Oh well.

So. The next tweak on the list was to upgrade my aero kit rear wing to look more like the GT3 wing. So, after much research on the Gurney strip, I decided that I wasn’t willing to pay the £250/£280 for the Porsche plastic part. Just seems outrageous for a piece of plastic. I took some measurements from a real GT3 inside the Hangar at Xmas Bicester recently.



Then had a spoiler made (overseas) to my exact dimensions. (30% higher, let’s call it Weissach spec). They manufactured & delivered it in about 1 week for under £50!

I find this a strange outlook. In simple terms; take a Standard Carrera then add a Mezger or GT3 suspension all done at an OPC such as Manthey. Maybe even fit an Inconel exhaust like they use in WRC or F1; which by any matrix you care to measure it by is far superior to what it replaces, how could anyone for a moment consider that deviating from what Porsche built as standard was wrong. I find this truly baffling. Many RS owners replace RS parts with Porsche CUP or other Motorsport parts to improve their cars...

How about I remove the 3 from GT3 and replace it with the Black C from the Carrera badge?

Porsche GTC

GT’C’

C for Carrera
C for Copy
C for Clone
C for Coc|<
C for Cr@p
C for C***


We already have the unofficial CLR

And the Singer DLS

Surely GTC is a compromise.


(Withdrawn to safe distance)


What does unofficial mean? Regarding your car, I personally think it looks perfectly fine and the badges are of completely no relevance in the grand scheme of things. Your car, but if others sway your decision then so be it, but in your shoes, I'd stand strong and do whatever it is that you feel most happy about. I however have big daft red bumpers on mine so perhaps take a pinch of salt with any guidance from me Thumb

The Isy GT2RS is a great creation and no doubt an expensive process. Hats off to him for seeing his project through regardless of cost; mission creep no doubt got the better of him, again I can't possible comment further on this front Grin

Hi ELA.

I’ve read about your car. Very impressive.

I’ve loved modifying all my cars. It’s what makes me tick. Yes, I’ve made some bad decisions on occasions but hey, it’s all for fun.

When I said unofficial about the CLR model, I simply meant that it wasn’t a Porsche factory model (or was it?). I quite like these new models that are made up (especially the CLR & the newly released GT3C) Gives the purists something to talk about too.

Your car is built for performance. Mine is not. But it’s still a tweaked Carrera at the end of the day so it’s no slouch.

Apologies for the dark photos but I grabbed an opportunity yesterday to fit this in the dark.

Here is the spoiler pre-gurney.

I removed the top blade via 4 rather tight (due to thread loc) 4mm Allen key C/S bolts. This allowed me to polish the void where the blade meets the main spoiler (satisfying).

I also thought I would invert the rear mounts (not forgetting to align the front mount) to give the increased spoiler angle. Just for fun. The GT3 spoiler is properly adjustable but I read about this on another thread so I thought I’d give it a go. I also read that it actually lowers your lap time around Laguna Seca by a few seconds due to increased drag knocking a few KPH off your top speed down the straights. Errrrr. I live in London so not sure my A406 times will be affected.

I took the measurements front the REAL GT3 and marked out my preferred location of the Gurney in masking tape.

I absolutely love the result. For £50! And no drilling.

I’ll get some better photos when I fit my carbon intakes.

Had a couple of Xmas Eve hours free this morning so had some GT3C fun.

Made a badge for the rear carpet. Admittedly I had to fit it to the (non GT3 option list) Bose subwoofer. The irony!

Made some tiny detail trim for the now exposed, unfinished edges of the rear wing. Much neater imo. Zoom in.

And made a couple of experimental decals for inside. Not sure on these yet but the badge & spoiler trims are keepers.









Any thoughts about the decals? Too much, or nice tie in with my invented new model.

Whilst on the decal front, where are you getting these done? Is there something on the market I can buy to do decals like the ones in the picture below. All the label printers I see have the background strip like the "ABS" one below. I just want the lettering like the "FIRE" for instance.

I think I might have some white over clear tape for my label printer. I can look in the New Year.

Like this. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F133074139918

Limited optional on font but will look better.

I make my decals & badges myself. I have a laser engraver at work. If you set the power really low you can cut vinyl & retain the backing paper. Not ideal, but works.

Sorry. I only have black text over clear tape in my stock.

Happy to print out if you find a roll of white over clear tape.

John.

So. The GT3 style (rear wing) air intakes arrived this week. But they sent GRP ones instead of carbon fibre.

Carbon fibre ones now on their way.

Once I’ve made a template, I’ll drill the spoiler and offer them both up and let you all know how they fit.

Not sure which ones I will fit tbh.

I quite like the idea of just painted ones (in my quest to make the car look GT3-ish (and it’s a huge ISH)

But I’ve also seen some blend effects I saw at McLaren MSO this week where they blend colour over carbon so the weave is exposed but in low light, it looks painted. Quite neat.



Any thoughts?

Either way. I should have a spare set to dispose off if anyone has an aero kit wing and fancies some scoops. I’ll cut a duplicate set of drilling templates when I make mine, just in case.


Oh. And I have a Spa track day problem. See my other post if you have any advice about their 103db testing process.
