Sorry guys I'm in Bahamas right now working on the yacht. I do plan to go to the Cars & Coffee meets in Liverpool in the summer though once my car is finished.

Just started arranging some stuff for when I get home. Linas has got me pencilled in for something very tasty and the suspension is being arranged also.

Very excited. Just need to get these next 9 weeks of work out of the way.

This made me LOL.

Speaks for your decision to remain with 4wd, Isys. And against mine to go to 2wd... Surprised

Hi Isysman

I would just like to say how absolutely fantastic your video about the roof removal and replacement was, brilliantly filmed and really interesting, I watched the whole thing with out skipping a second (very rare for me)

Thanks a lot, and the car looks amazing as well Thumb

That's funny! Not sure owning the GT2RS means you have a death wish but then again I've not driven one.

This is what owners forums are about. Build threads like these.

I don't like the stigmatism behind the purists outlook, the warranty nazi's

Porsches are to be enjoyed, Restored, Modified.

If i was wearing a hat, i'd take it off to you. Epic project and i'm very jealous!

An inspiration to us all. A great looking 911. Cool

Your opinion is welcome Neil but your reference to 'purists outlook' is OTT.

Porsches are to be enjoyed. How individual owners achieve that enjoyment is a very personal thing.

Thanks myw and neil_911 for the compliments. It's nice to know people appreciate the work going into the car.

T8 I agree everyone is entitled to enjoy their car how they want. However I see the point he's trying to make from a certain angle. I've never seen people so interested in keeping their car as it rolled out of the factory, and I think it has a lot to do with the warranty restrictions. But it goes so far as cars being devalued because they are not stock and people rolling back mods to try to sell their car. I have never seen that with any other marque. It is rather peculiar. A modified Ford Focus RS will command a premium over a stock version for instance.

Anyway if having your car stock down to the windscreen wipers is your thing then I say enjoy it. Not knocking anyone.

That's pretty much what i was getting at, It's seems everyones worried about depreciation, like what happens to the value if they let the porsche warranty expire.

I don't have a warranty, Nor a fixed OPC to service. I've always been hands on with my various cars. Knowing each knock, squeak and rattle without panicking.

No worries over depreciation, Racking the mileage up, or getting stone chips.

Get out and drive, As magnus walker says Smile

Thumb Thumb Thumb daily drive or garage queen , heavily modded or stock all lovely motors. I do take the mick sometimes about bearded sandle wearers, but infact I have never had stick from any Porsche owner either hairdryer or kettle owners about either of my driven a lot and modded 911s
I enjoy reading isys updates to his car and vids of gin palaces getting docked around the world lol , not enough pics of scantily clad women from around the world though Floor Floor

Just had some bad news from Tech9. The Axle lift and coilover kit has not been shipped from TechArt in Germany as planned and now they are saying it has been delayed until September. It was meant to be fitted next week. Needless to say I'm pretty disappointed. I ordered early to avoid this very thing so I am frustrated.

I've asked Phil at Tech9 to ask if they can ship the coilover kit separately and then I can have the axle lift fitted when it arrives in September. This is messing with my plans for my August trip. Awaiting to hear back.

Options?

Head out for a good blast. Clear the cobwebs??? Then order some Ohlins and not worry about axle lift?

Further update from Phil at Tech9 on the question of getting the coilovers and then fitting the axle lift later; because surely it would be that rare system that would be delayed right?

Quote:
It’s the other way round unfortunately, NOSELIFT is available, it’s the suspension kit that’s delayed

I will consider other options for you. Do you want to retain PASM ?

The car currently has no seats! Could be dangerous driving it that way! Very Happy
I'm getting it ready for my trip in August which I've been planning since last year. Colecting seats this week, was due to have suspension/axle lift next week and week after that paint correction and PPF. And all ready for August 8th
