Yes. This is exactly what I was going to say: it is an expensive project, no doubt. But it will still cost miles and miles less than an original. And I don't know how Isysman feels about driving hard, but one of my motivators in building a replica GT2RS is not having the worry that if something happens on a track day, etc, I will be destroying a large som of money AND a piece of history-just a mediocre a sum of money Grin

Do you know how they managed to drill out the spot welds without penetrating the panel it was attached to?

While Spot welds are drilled with flat drills with only a small pilot point and there are even fixtures that allow drilling to a specific depth, you will always see the bottom spot when the panels come apart.


I didn't see anything in the vid either - so I assume they must have given the flange a light grind and a spot of primer previously.

Funny how everyone is now talking to you about the DSC suspension module, Isys. As we both want cars that perform optimally on both road and track, I believe this is the best solution. As IMI_A said, give the module alone with your stock PASM suspension a try - it's only $1200. You'll need it anyway if you go with the Tractive coilovers later. I wanted to go this route as well, but without a PASM suspension, I would have had to purchase the full $7000 suspension plus the DSC module, accelerometer, and wiring harness. But an aquaintance offered me a nearly new 997 GT2 suspension at a very reasonable price. So I will try this with the DSC module before sinking an additional $7000 in the Tractive coilovers. Now I just have to work out my lower, rear damper mounts, as the 996 has an eyelet and the 997 a bracket...

wow £300k for a bent Left hooker!

I love the focus on the roof, getting rid of the sunroof, changing the liner, poly carb windows etc and those final bits that you are focusing on really make this build special and unique to you. shame about the carbon roof as they do look the part. I used to love the carbon roof on my old CSLs.

are you going to do the carbon mirrors and put a cage in the back as all the OEM RS seem to have those?

you would be pretty much there then and only a real anorak with it in the air underneath could tell. is it still 4wd?

Mirrors are already done. They are OEM mirror covers with new OEM auto dimming glass replacements.



Well there are cars without the cage, that was part of the clubsport package. However I am planning to fit one. When the car was in getting the roof done they said it would have been a good time to fit it as the interior was stripped out. However when I contact OPC they said they no longer make them for the 997. And I couldn't find an OEM look cage inside the UK. The only ones I could find are in the US. But it's on my list.

Yes it's still AWD, that won't be changing, I like the security of that system.

The number that don't have the cage is actually more than you would think (and it wasn't even available in some markets, such as the USA {for type approval reasons no porkers have them over there from the factory - even GT3 RSs - and everyone who wants one has to retrofit}), so its absence in a replica really isn't that much of a big deal.

Yeah I read about that somewhere. Crazy that they have to remove the roll cage and then have another one fitted after they receive it. So it's not illegal to have one in the car but it's illegal to sell a car with in.

nice one on the mirrors. looking great and missed that one.

i think a cage would be awesome and the final touch really. stiffen it up a bit too. good luck with all that.

once you get a cage in and stiffen the shell up you could fit a sunroof ?

surely a cage adds rigidity as well as being a safety addition?

always has on my track cars of old.

I'm sure it would add rigidity. Looks like I might be heading over to the US this year so I'm sure I'll be looking whilst out there.

Did a short update video last night. Meant to put it out before I left the UK but never got around to it. Very short, just brings me up to date. Highlights an interesting problem that was found at Tech9 with my airbox.

So given that you are almost at the end of this journey, have you got another one lined up in your mind or are you done for a while?
Looks amazing.

Looks utterly amazing! Fair play fella thumbsup

I'm sure it's covered in the thread I'm just too lazy to look. What mods have you done to the engine? Is it up to GT2RS circa 620 bhp?

I think I'll always be tinkering with it but the major stuff is almost complete. Bodywork is completely finished now. Suspension should be getting done next time I'm home. Been talking with Tractive about a lift system they are developing for their coilover kit so waiting for a release date.

I'm planning a rear cage and seats to be recovered. After that possibly the 9e treatment.

As for something new, I'm thinking about it, possibly a classic car. I'd love an old 911 but prices are stupid now.

Holly shipballs! That's mental. 1200km! Wow. Looks stunning though. I'm getting my car paint corrected and PPF next time I'm home so it will shine like that one. It's all new paint pretty much anyway. Looking forward to that.

isysman - I notice you're in Cheshire. Do you attend any of the Cars & Coffee events - would be keen to see it! Looks incredible.
