Discord wouldn`t let it put you off I think its all a balance of what you will pay for a properly sorted one or one that is good to start with (hard to find) as long as the purchase price reflects condition which mine did and was aware of the body needing work, I suppose the killer is of you pay decent money which most of them seem to be asking at the moment and you find it need this degree of work. I am intrigued at the moment with 993 owners looking at the 964 not sure I would change back the way I have a 964 because I couldn`t afford a 993 !

Got the rear bumper off today drilled out the 5 rivets along the top edge , had to take the outer cover of as I didn`t have enough access to the 2 main bumper mounts because of my twin outlet fabspeed however will need to take the tips of for refitting which will be easier . One of the mounting points has corroded and broken and will require welding which would appear to be common after talking to Fuch today.

I will probably replace the center section with the RS type been looking at these ones on Ebay which are moulded rather than fibreglass

My German is a bit rusty but that looks quite decent.

I think I will,wait until you've bought your before committing.

It is on my "to-do" list for my blue one.

It was a bit of a struggle getting the rear bumper support of f, you can see the alloy corrosion on both the bolts and the retaining tabs on the bumper support both of which have broken not surprising as there was very little left, I ran the bolts over the wire wheel and the corrosion is so bad the bolts have holes in them, the bumper support tubes, one was covered in oil and is in good nick the other one from the passenger side is shot, clear the bumper has never been removed.

Ooh that looks nasty!!!

After trying to remove a couple of bolts and failing miserably and ending up with several bolts minus their heads I have the upmost admiration for your ongoing adventure. You are a very brave chap.

Carry on. Mechanic

You would hardlt believe these two brackets came off the same car the good one (Drivers side) was covered in oil which obviously protected it so oil leaks not all bad !.

Prepped the front bumper for fitting the brake ducts all pretty straightforward and happy with the fit.

Also looking to get new j-u nuts for putting everything back does anybody know the most common sizes of these No 8 , 10 ? decent selection on ebay here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2008840104...84.m1423.l2649 unless any one has a decent source.

So eventually got round to popping the windscreen out and see how far the rust went even though it doesn`t look great it really only right at the corner thats goosed the scuttle is solid a small distancee away from the rust you see didnt get time to look at the other side but pretty much the same I suspect.

remember boys its not the bubbles you have to worry about its what`s underneath Surprised

Interesting to see what lies beneath Gaz , quite shocked to see its that bad , good job you're getting that sorted now , some welding required .
Are you going to be painting the whole car ?

Yip full glass out respray on the cards been busy cleaning and prepping all the various parts , just finding the time between kids work etc you would always like it done quicker but only doing it once so its going to be done right.

Peter`s having a blast with your old car sure he will give you first dibs when he gets the Blue one sorted downright greedy having 3 911 and lost count of his engines Laughing

So got round to popping the rear quarter windows out with not to much trouble all looking fine other than some very minor surface bubbling on the pass side which will rub up no problems . Also pulled an old tracking system that was hidden in the dash which I have no paperwork for more weight removed heavy little battery on that tracker Thumb Bodywork/painter is coming to have a look at the car tomorow

Did you plan to go this far when you started Gaz , as in actually stripping all the paint off , looks like fun but time taking . I look forward to seeing the finished job. worship k

Some of the smaller bits done today rear roof spoiler 993 door handles look lovely polished seems a shame to paint them, after some lovely sunshine yesterday back to the bloody snow today.

Yes they are Bilsteins, that was last years winter project, should be finished this year sometime !and yes Keith the intention was always for a back to metal respray because of the bits of bodywork really wanted to know if there was anything else hiding the car also had multi coloured panels,bumpers,mirrors etc and stripping it myself to keep the costs down.
