I'm not a huge fan of the Carrera S script on the boot so just a subtle change from this



To this

Been on a road trip so thought I'd add some character for the jaunt across Europe with some Martini decals. Certainly got loads of waves and thumbs up Cool

2005 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Thu Jun 06, 2019 5:35 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Well, it was last week but....

MOT, minor service, all pads and disks, dampers and wear sensors, 2 x stainless Dansk sports silencers, new front springs, top mounts bump stops and geo.

Early days for the silencers, but developing a good sound (old OEMs had gundo mod)
Noticeable improvement in tone / volume on part throttle openings.

Gundo was good, but rather muted below about 3k. No drone, which is just as well. The old units were shot - noticeable extra low-down torque once fitted.

Not sure why, but it seems folk aften comment on improvement in tone with a few miles on an exhaust, so will be interesting how / if tone develops further.

Bought most of the brake parts from Auto-doc, went with Brembo disks and pads (pads are stamped Textar). Finish on the "flange" (😁) or bell mounting is much better than the dull silver OEM, hope it'll stay looking smart.

Top work as usual by Joe & Chris @ Wrightune. Mechanic

2009 Porsche 997 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Fri Jun 14, 2019 9:21 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Some planned spending this month, also some unplanned.

Planned:

— wheel refurb by The Wheel Specialist Nottingham: OE Silver - looks great but a couple of isolated defects where something has floated onto the lacquer whilst drying. Offered to re-do them. Lesson learned - don’t collect car from a job like that in the pouring rain (doesn’t make inspecting the wheels a very thorough job)

— £15 ebay centre caps fitted to the refurbed wheels. The first crest had fallen out by the time I got home (30 miles) Rolling Eyes Glad I kept the OE ones. 2 others have followed suit - you get what pay for (might try clear laquer on them if there’s a next time)

— Gtechniq c1 wheel sealant applied (meant to make washing much easier - although my car is barely dirty between washes)

— 997 GT3 brake cooling ducts fitted front and rear (£20 from OPC Thumb )

— Dot5.1 brake fluid (first time on track next week - Donington)

— Full geo alignment (it was barely out so a little unnecessary)

— Switched to Millers Nano 10w50 now I’m on 66k miles.

Unplanned expenditure: nooo

— Front coffin arms replaced following shock MoT fail on one ball joint. (Unblemished MoT history now tainted)

— Coil pack 2 replaced

— Coolant topped up

— Coolant expansion tank cap replaced

Weeping coolant pipe diagnosed (will be monitored)

Feeling a bit skint but it’s great to have a healthy car again - I’ve been pretty miserable.

Next month the multicar Insurance is due - another grand frustrated

... and Road tax next month.

A couple of Michelin PS2's for the front.

Manufacturing date was 2717 so nearly 2 years old before purchase which was a bit surprising, had assumed Michelin would make batches more often and tyres would be fresher.

Also surprised at how relatively light the wheel/tyre combo was compared to the 18" wheels on the daily driver.

Been a slightly busy one...

- The £120 Mr12Volt bluetooth kit from eBay (works great, faff to fit initially as I have both phone and CD changer)
- Tools to fit above (socket set etc.)
- Magnetic phone holder
- Zunsport grills in black (just sides) [not yet fitted]
- Basalt Black touch up paint [not yet used]

Just had full PPI plus all radiator hoses replaced

Need to address all the stone chips at some point... (there are loads!)

Been a couple of weeks but since getting a ‘drivers spec’ C2S;
Red seat belt webbing.
LED interior light bulbs.
Full paint restoration and detail, massive improvement.
Removed rear Carrera S badge. But found paint scratched underneath so it had to go back on, painted it Matt Black first though.
New C2 number plates.

OPC Portsmouth- major service, spark plugs and brake fluid change.

Precision - actuator rod replacement near side (spotted by DeMort during an earlier meet/check Thumb ), couple of loose trim bits and an underbody wax treatment.

Couple of pics that the Precision guys took whilst the car was with them. Thought I’d post them as a different angle usually hidden by the undertray.

A new clutch. A large circlip failed in the clutch plate cover. Thankfully no damage to the flywheel according to OPC which dramatically reduced the cost of replacement.
Looking at the plate it was only at half life which confirms my theory of rev matching every year change as a good long term strategy for minimising wear.
Excellent service by OPC Wilmslow too Thumb
