Wonderful weather this morning, took the car ou of the garage and it's like a ray og sunshine!

Can't drive it much yet because:

-the car is still on trade plate, waiting for reg docs to come through

-don't want to put any more stone chips on, Paintshiel going on next wkend



So job for today:

-use the Langka stuff to repair a few stone chips, great stuff, will start another thread about it later

-fit the RS bucket

-if I'm still alive after that, fit the alu pedals set that I bought from the states (http://www.ultimatepedals.com/home.htm)

What's the motivation for the pedals Mick? Always thought that alu ones would be a tad slippery when wet?!

The alu pedals are very slipery when wet, but only slightly more so than the rubber ones., When dry, I much prefer the feel of the pedals. The rubber ones feel a bit soggy in comparison. More so with the driving boots with thin soles.

Also they look good, I can pretend I'm a racing driver then! Wink

Only GT3s on Porsche OPC ad in back of Sunday Times Gear supplement Speed Yellow as well. Is SY the new arctic silver?

Mick, car sounds :dribble:, but had you never driven a RS version before you got yours?

Finished sorting out the chips. The thing is, the more you do the more you find!

Changed the seats to the RS buckets. Weight the seats, there's 10kg difference between the two. So intotal 20kg weight saving for the pair.

20kg less from the seats, lighter wheels on the way, heavier spoiler to be fitted - what's your target kerb weight then Mick?

Target will be as close to standard as poss considering I have ac, elec windows + Px airbag and rear seat belts. The seats are the single most significant wt gain optional extra, then comes the wings and airbags.

Sounds like a fair target. Be interesting to hear how you get on with your first track outing - when you next out?
