Unless you are replacing a defective/broken unit on a genuine 993 RS / Turbo etc., the £460 option makes no sense..

I was quite happy with those, but the Type 911 ones with the lights look good.

Will give those a go.

Shocked to see the price of OE Turbo S ducts. I got mine ages ago to replace some I got off ebay which would not accept the Hella lamps,they were much cheaper then, sorry about that.
The Hella lamp units were available quite cheaply but needed a bit of wiring and led festoons. The Techart ones are even more ridiculously priced and are a pain to fit. I find front fogs superfluous anyway with the Morimoto projectors as the cut off is so sharp and foreground illumination excellent.

Nick, Meguiars NXT Metal Polish is good for polishing bare unlacquered rims, more of a milder version of Autosol, however it doesn't offer the prolonged protection of a CG Wheel Guard IMO... and I've tried many on my polished Speedlines. Thumb

I was quite happy with those, but the Type 911 ones with the lights look good.

Will give those a go.

B


type 911 ducts painted and fitted, they look great.
The rust has also been seen to with the added bonus that the garage fitted the new front and rear lights as well as the head lamp lenes.

Will post a pic as soon as I figure out how too.

Next stop air con...

Local Garage told me I could have some Ramp Time last night, so scooted down to a Tyre Fitter [old Brighton Business that has been around for 30+ years, the Father owner of which has a Porsche Previous History], slotted some PS4 [235F, 275R] on and then headed to the Garage..

No Spacers, and a Perfect Fit.. Cool

Didn't get a chance to test them out as the Night drew in and the Rain started, but hopefully will get out soon, hoping for an Early Morning blat.. Cop

The sun was shining and I had the day off so fitted new belts(fronts genuine and rears re-webbed although very hard to tell the difference - even side by side.

And believe it or not something broke...a window switch so that was a nice 2 minute repair.

Hadn`t done anything on the 993 for a very long time so was nice to be pottering again. Smile

PostPosted: Thu Oct 24, 2019 4:36 am    Post subject: A complete Targa roof Reply with quote

I just bought a complete, second hard Targa roof !

I have posted before about this but I took the risk of buying my Targa with a Targa roof sealed in with silicon and all the sun shade missing.

I since removed the glass, replaced all the seals and cables and refitted it all but then the car went into storage before I could get it all back up and running.

I've always kept on the lookout for spares and sun shade and came across this on ebay and purchased it and its now tucked safely away waiting for me to strip it, fit the sun shade to my car and keep the rest as spares

I couldn't actually believe it when I saw it on ebay! thumbsup
