Love those alloys wing, really look superb , you cant beat the look of concave alloys on a 911. those are a very clean design and perfectly match the other exterior mods. really nice job.
How are you finding the 20" rims on a 997 , I know your roads are in better condition than the UK roads.


Love those wheels Thumb really suit the car, classy Thumb


Thanks Rob, the more i see these the more i love theme also Thumb Thumb

Wheel spacers, black stone guards and a lick of paint for the wheels.

Been away for a few days, but back tomorrow.

I Completely re-trimmed the lower steering wheel surround and glovebox in alcantara.
Quite an easy job, took my time and planned everything before sticking the alcantara down, had bought a used glove box & lower steering surround and after about 2 1/2hrs sticking the alcantara down, letting it dry and another 2hrs taking my original pieces out & refitting the alcantara ones everything was complete!
Nicely freshens up the interior and a nice change from the OEM stuff.

The larger mirrors really make a difference.

Yes indeed - the original gen 1 mirrors give a very poor field of view. Good thing Porsche changed the design. Simple to swap them over too, no coding required.

Yeah I've done the mod on a couple of cars now. Quite straightforward.

Hope you haven't ruined the front bumper already by attaching the plinth!

Nice. I did mine a couple of months ago. Can I ask what colour the alcantara is and where you sourced it from. I think I am going to redo mine as not v happy with the colour.
Thanks.

Thank you Sir. I've got a few other bits to go on her which I need to get painted next. Some bumpers and a ducktail. No rush but I'm looking forward to the results.
