Advice for a 996 noob?

Looking in cracking condition l behind the bumper, mine was too. You need to remove the heat shields that go up against the wheel arch bulkhead and have a look behind them. Word of caution, the nuts that hold on the shields may snap the screws that attaché to the bulkhead. See images of my car after removal and treatment.

Beautiful car, well worth the hunt and the wait :cool:

What else do you have planned for the car?"
"Hug him and love him and name him as George!"

Not much other than slowly and meticulously going round it cleaning, improving and sympathetically restoring where necessary to make it the best example I possibly can, then just sporadic use when the mopod take me and the roads are nice and dry.
