Nice pics.

I know the 3.2 is not fast but you should get it on the track and learn about the handling so when you get a 930 it doesn't turn round and bite you.

A new colleague at work was telling me how a friend of his wrote off a 930 5 years ago on the road in the wet He had lots of 'normal' car experience too, he actually worked for a race team. He lost the back end and totalled it within 6 months of ownership. He was luckily unhurt as he was not going very fast.

Some more fusebox shots would be nice as the focus wasn't quite right. Did you need to enable macro maybe?

When you say wet sanding, what grit do you use? and you said compound, what kind?

Is the 930 metalic or enamel paint, BTW mine is enamel w/o clear coat...

The wet sand took me almost two full days started with 1200 ended with 1500
12' sanding blocks the compound all 3m the best by far!! This was a three day
deal . I know there are newer ways to do this ( but all old school here!)

Check for an intermittent (sp?) wiper switch just above and between the speedo and the clock.

Thanks for the (really focused!) fuse box close up Ed…

Is that a Red/Top Optima batt in the 930? (pic 1 post #270)

Why do the front and back Fuch’s look diff? (pic 3 post #270)
Black spokes front, something else in the rear?

Just curious, I know you have the real deal here!

Yes red/Optima batt ! I have not taken the time to find the right
battery as of yet but it was removed and lost cleaning out the warehouse
As far as the back tires they did not fair as well as the front but
have located a set like new will be here by Thursdays !! payed
Thur the nose !
What do I do for a battery for it??
The engine bay insultion is dried out and I guest they do not make the same
anymore, do I put the new style?

You must still have the black foam of death for engine bay lining?
I went with this, available from PP when I had my engine out last winter.

Defiantly not original but not bad either!



As far as the battery…who knows what came in these cars originally 20 yrs ago!
