thanks for your kind words chaps and really please with outcome.

I have got some Silver Speedline wheels I wanted to try out on the car. appreciate your feedback on the colour. think I am more with the black but can keep these wheels for track use maybe.

proper off sets for GT3 as well as 235/295 tyres but they look smaller. maybe the design but they are defo 18s!

And these tyres:

final bits to do on the car before wales trip....

Calipers refurbed

























New Air con system




gets nasty in there
















better main rad
























air con re gassed.

no idea why Porsche never put some sort of mesh in there and its hard to retrofit on the gt3 as the air scoops all mold into the bumper fittings.

should last a few years though. will keep on top of it with the hoover.

Stunning 996, looks absolutely mint and love guards red looks the business.
Get the black wheels back on ASAP look so much better!!
Re mesh it's a two hour job and would get it done if you can as it will prot ct your new rads.
See link below, I used gt4's guide and instructions were spot on, here's a pic of mine meshed

thanks for your kind words chaps. its pretty much done now and where I want it to be so just going to enjoy it.

off to north wales next weekend for a driving trip with an RS, another GT3 and some nobles. should be fun

TB saw that car...sadly mine has a few more miles on it and its been used but it should have appreciated Wink I just love owning and driving it as always wanted one.

thanks for the pics of the turbo front PU. sadly we have tried to do that but for some reason the GT3 front bumper where it meets the rubbers and all the venting it means the bumper won't go on properly.

orb why I have not seen GT3s with the front mesh as it makes perfect sense to do it!! annoying but hey ho,

Some people put mesh in back in ye olde days, but it was a rare mod as perversely it invalidated the warranty (I kid you not). Now that they are out of warranty the only reason not to has become the spiralling values and perceived desirability of originality nooo

If I still had my old 996 I would certainly do it.

an expensive day!!

new bosch alternator and drive belt:





replacement rear bumper painted and fitted (the old repaired one was not holding and was cracking above near side exhaust)



OEM exhaust tips..so much better and a slightly deeper noise too. Tips were welded on as bolts tend to rattle and rust quick:





all done now and where I want the old girl to be. just to drive and enjoy Wink

great work as ever by Scotts Performance in Dartford, Kent. great local German specialist Wink

am doing the centre console delete. being over 6ft its annoying at best of time and I don't really use it. drove an RS recently and that just felt more comfortable with no CC there.

the club sports and RS have this mod. its an easy mod (not that cheap) from the OPC and will go/look like this for anyone with a centre console and 996:







£130 from the local OPC. result cheaper than anywhere on web or US

got the centre console delete stuff from the OPC and all went well.

only took about 30 mins once I had worked it all out and managed to lift the main gearstick console a little so I could get the console delete kit under. getting the metal bracket out with the 4 10mm nuts is a bit fiddly with a spanner but stuck with it.

its a great match with the OEM carpet and it looks so much nicer in the cabin. much less cluttered too and much more leg room for the over 6 footers

follow the instructions on the pelican site and you cant go wrong....

missed out on the OPC pompey visit due to a ruddy christening near Twickenham.

consoled myself with a clean and polish today. I took it to Williams HQ on Friday to host some clients which was fun and spirited. quite a lot of brake dust and rubber around Wink

onwards and upwards.
