Rarly, I think Les is thinking the same thing I am. I think he meant the fact that the rear licence plate does not have a light(s). I am trying to do a similar upgrade on the rear bumper and was wondering if the lights are required or if anyone has done them and made them look good on the smoother style bumper, like yours, where there is only a slight depression for the tag. Thanks/Tony

My rear plate does have lights. I mounted a stock light above the plate and used the stock wiring.

I put two water proof connectors on my tag lits wires and plan to use them on my 964 type three piece bumper. Bman did you fit any kind of bar from one shock to the other? Some people just bolt them right to the car and don't put the bar behind the bumper.

No... I know I'm taking a chance but I sure hope nothing happens Hell I'm not even going to hook up tag lights

I second Craig's comments regarding rear end protection. **** happens. You can be as careful as you want until you or someone else makes a mistake. None of us are perfect. My stock bumpers saved my ass this weekend at Road America where I made a mistake while passing through the kink.

So I'm curious - and I apologize up front if someone has already posted it - but on a factory 964 Turbo, what did Porsche have lurking under the front and rear bumper "covers"?

Heat

Any advice about heat shields when using a FG bumper? My new DE tool (GaryR's ex Pumpkin) has the FG bumpers and gets REALLY HOT above the turbo, so much so that the reflector is warping!

I can't tell you exactly what is under the bumpers, but I'll try to take a peek under the back one, the front would be hard to look at. Too bad Wayne doesn't still have the parts diagrams....

There are very sturdy curved aluminum channel beams on both ends with bumper shocks similiar to the earlier USA bumpers. The tow hooks screw into these beams on both ends.

I believe the part numbers are the same for the 964 and 965 beams.

The rear beam can be fitted to an earlier (SC) style body with little trouble. I used the Euro collapsible bumper mounts. The front is different and required engineering a mount that I'm not that proud of (to little trial and too much error).

You quickly become aware of the chassis differences between the SC and the 964/965.

jayhawk,

you may want to look over at betterbodies site. Look under the installation tab and you will see some sketches of the reinforcement and heat shields for the fg bumper applications. This will give you some concepts that you can employ. Good Luck and post some pictures if you go forward with any improvements. /Tony

My friend and I both run Porsches with fiberglass bumpers, and for license plate lights we both use license plate bolts with built in led lights, which hook straight up to the regular license-light connector wires behind the bumper.

There are a million of them on the internet. Lite n boltz is one brand if I remember correctly.

It is a easy way to hook up lights on your rear fiberglass bumper and a super clean install.

Thanks, I have been off line for a while. I'll check them out. I found the part number for the original 930 "heat protector" and have the local dealer trying to get me one. I'll probbaly have to fab a bracket as the original looks like is mounted to the bumper.

I also ordered some heat shield from Summit Racing that has an adhesive back that I will put on the inside of the FG bumper as well.

I'll take some pics and post when I do it.

DDD GREAT idea about the neon plate bolts!

I am afraid my friend has to get the credit for the license plate bolts idea.

But I did get some of that heatshielding from Summit Racing. It certainly seems to apply easily and all but I was pissed that I paid $50 for what appears to be aluminum foil on cardboard with a glue backing... Oh well. It works.
