Luckily neither of my cars have the fins!
Since you don't have the fins do you get a lot of "damage" on your quarter panels?

I always thought the car looks better without the fins and I always wondered why people don't just rip them off.

Bernard - where did you source your clear 964 fins, and how much if I may ask? If I have to peel mine to clock my torsion bars I want to price out all my options first.

I really love the look of the clear on your slate blue, and have always dug how the black cars are so muted and monchromatic. However I have ALSO always dug how the Gran Prix and Guards cars have all the black accentuations. I'll have to Pshop off mine in a photo and see what I think clear'd look like I guess. Gots to get it lowered, soooo...

Thanks.


ps. speaking of Aero mirros... anyone ever notice 911 mirrors are asymetrical in mounting points side to side? Buddy pointed it out to me last night, now it's all I see! Weird. Either I'm a noob and everyone knows this or...

The front of the rear fender flare will take a beating without some sort of stone guard.
I left those off of my car due to the brake duct hole in the aftermarket rocker covers. Big mistake. The entire area was sand blasted with rock chips the first summer. I would now have to do a repaint before finding some way to cover and protect the area.

Sorry about the wrong info... The rear stone guards are off a 997 not a 964. The part numbers are P997-504-825-02 P997-504-826-02 They were about $38 each.

They wont be an exact fit, you will have trim some off the bottom and also remove the lower rubber trim to install it. The best why to do it is with soap/water to allow you to move it around until you find the right place for it.

Paul,

All one has to do is apply the film with the torsion bar cover removed. Use an xacto knife to cut out the whole.. finish the application and then apply the cut-out piece to the torsion bar cover. Trim as needed on both areas and you're done! That simple.

AS Rarely stated, the front of the rear 1/4s will be peppered by the end of the summer without some kind of protection.

As far as the mirror position is concerned, they are placed so that with a properly adjusted seat, and properly adjusted mirrors.. you almost don't have to turn your head to look into the mirrors... just cut your eyes to the right through the 1/4 glass on the pass side and the mirror should show whats there.. on the drivers side it's a quick glance out the full side window..

I know that's all it takes for me if positioned properly... besides, that's all you have time for at triple digit speeds!

Paul

Thanks Paul.

I assume you mean this is after buying NEW film, and then being able to have unfettered access to the covers?

I was sorta wondering if you could cut the film on there now and remove the cover with it on, then reapply and just have a seam. Look ridiculous? Source of moisture trap? Be OK? Or do you have to peel it off the cover itself to get the cover off?

If I peel it I'll have to decide black again or clear. And, no, no way I'd run the car sans - it's evident by looking @ the film how effective it is.

Oh I know the reasoning on the mirrors (but thanks!), just never noted it and now it's all I see 8-).

Tx again.

My car does have a few specks of damage, I have no idea how many miles it has done since it was last painted though.

As for the mirrors, it's yet another reason not to convert LHD to RHD or vica versa!

Paul, I'd try to cut out the disc of your black film neatly and then refit the disc. If you're not happy then get new fins.

Ok, I see... but yeah, you can still cut it with an xacto. Does not look ridiculous at all, have seen a number of them like that, its the only way to adjust the bars.

I don't see it as a water trap either, you could always use a thin "finger wipe" of silicone around the edge of the cover as well as the hole on the car, or use a rubber seal like the other 911s.

Paul,

No problem.. looks like I'll adding the clear fins as well with much cutting.
I have vents in my 1/4 panels, just removed the slats to clean it up well to add the clear pieces. Ordered those yesterday!

Good luck with yours.

Paul

I got the clear bra installed on the front bumper Saturday. Being their was no kit out for the Turbo 964 bumper that I could find I had my guy custom install it and he did a great job. I also has him custom cut one on the Corrado too.

Another Fan

Bernard,

I also love the Corrado's. They bring back some teenage memories. I have owned 8 VW's and always liked the looks of the Corrado's.

It is nice to have 2 fun cars to drive. Great looking rides!

Thanks Bryan... I just picked it up a few weeks ago from the original owner. He's also a big Porsche fan. He has a super clean 928 GT and an older 911. This Corrado is in showroom condition with every service record to back it up. I just installed a 2.5" exhaust from the down pipe back. I'm also added a Turbo to it which will put down close to 300 HP.

I just sold my old Jetta coupe Turbo which the power was just un-real.
