A bit of speed yellow for the inside. Front belts done at OPC today. Rears are on backorder.

I have the standard black ones available if anyone is looking for some.

Spent some time in my local OPC measuring up the badges.
Bit of DIY taping up, and on they go.



And the finished job.

It was done by TOPGEAR exhaust in Bridport but they are rolling it out to their network of Powerflow and Longlife sites give the HQ a call and see if the nearest centre to you had got one yet .

Seems to suit the 997 rear more so than the fussy 991 rump - nice job.

Some new microfiber pass for the DA polisher, thought I would give them a go instead of the usual foam pads! Ready for the first good detailing of the year when back from holiday!

This is one of the jobs on my to do list.... how did you measure or match up, I worry I will put them on wonky!
I would probably just go with the P O R S C H E badge myself. ..
Good job!

MOT, road tax, new A/C condenser & a pair of tyre pressure sensors... Almost £500 down just putting it back on the road, & that's before the A/C re-gas 🙄😳

I measured the spaces at the OPC but the 997 curves slightly so you need to use a tape line ,I have been told that the gap is the same width as the letters
and if you putting the 911 on make sure its leaning correctly Thumb
