The screen I have ordered from Porsche Portsmouth. Approx £730.00 plus the inner and outer seals which are about another £100.00 for the pair.

I am just trying to work out how the rear view mirror comes off, it appears that the screen comes bonded with a mounting point so hopefully that is a simple swap over job.

I chose to do the antenna cable and booster because my radio reception is rubbish and it seems a logical point to make sure it is all connected correctly at the time the screen is out.

The screens can be tricky - a few of us have had bad experience with bodged fitting and although I have personally have successfully installed screens in other cars wouldn't attempt the 993 - the squeak could drive you mad!

The front screen surround is also a favourite point for corrosion - do a search on here and google Glassman for the pro's and cons.

Hope all goes well with the install.......

Hi and thanks for the observations.

I am inevitably keen to get this right first time and have read many articles before taking the plunge. I have also read about a teflon strip being installed for the squeak being either a good thing or bad with some articles saying it traps water. I am using genuine parts and the bodyshop and their glass guy have done a 993 recently. The OPC confirmed they supplied the glass and parts to the body shop / customer so I am pretty happy I am on the right track and in safe hands.

I am keen to be around when they remove the screen to see what if any work is required below also to grab some photos.

Fingers as always crossed.

KR
Mike

Ah......thought you were trying a DIY install initially.

I'm sure it will be awesome.......

Fitted that engine tidy strip thingamyjig thing at long last. I needed a little help from someone with small fingers though - but makes a world of difference Thumb

On another note - I now want to tidy up the full engine bay a bit more now. Anyone got any tips for what to use for the plastics and alloy varioram thing?

I recently had my windscreen removed by Paul aka 'Glassman'.
The body shop tidied the scuttle up and then Paul returned to reinstall the windscreen- it's rock solid now.
While they had the car I also had the chassis legs looked at.
The rust was not as bad on the car as I expected but I'm still glad the jobs are done with.......

Good job there Thumb

I recently went through the same pain - but I now have that warm fuzzy feeling when I look at the car and know that it's all sorted Cloud 9

Yes- you do feel better knowing it's sorted........

After rain I could run my finger along the bottom corner of windscreen outer seal and water would push out where it had gathered- it's all completely water tight now.....

Delivered my 993 to the bodyshop for the new screen. From first look by removing the front and rear seals is that all looks good and sound so fingers crossed nothing drastic going on.

Whilst there we discussed other options one of which is adding on the third brake light roof spoiler. I wondered if any views as to whether best left standard for a 95 993 or having that done whilst there and they are armed with a spray gun!! Also any views on keeping indicators red or amber. Maybe not the right forum location but just thought I would ask for any opinions?

Mike

^^^^ Do it Thumb It makes all the difference, plus it's a safety feature given the fact the brake lights are so low on these cars. I fitted the high level brake light/spoiler to my 964 and so far I've not been tarred and feathered what

+ 1 on the 3rd brake light - and get the ToreB upgrade Thumb

I would say go for the rear ambers - and I will even take the 'reds' off your hands Whistling
In fact - do you wanna' swap?

Hi

Thanks for recommendations. I will do the third brake light as I agree the visibility isn't that good with the lights low down plus it does look good and finishes off the roof line. Its a good opportunity to do it but not cheap. Not sure what the ToreB upgrade is but will check it out.

Re the lights having re read my note I should have said go from Ambers to Red as that is what I have at the moment so thank you Andy for the offer to swap but will stick with the Ambers for the time being. Once I have been to Beaulieu with all the 993's I may have my mind changed!! Again!!

Mike

24k Mile service incl. plugs and new plug leads fitted. MOT etc.

Just waiting to collect tomorrow and then get on with fitting various other goodies I have bought over the last year, but haven't got round to fitting.
