1000% amen - more pics! Such a cool build.

And funny enough, that corner indicator air scoop now resides on my car 8-). JohnPaul even included a real nice looking Porsche key fob in the packaging when he sent it, just 'because'. How cool is that?

anyway - thanks for the thought Ken...

That spout on the brown car above does look pretty sharp. At some point, I'm going to add a nose cooler to mine, and will make a spout similar to that other than I think I will form the front panel to match the arch/curve of the bumper. The one above has a flat front panel and just doesn't quite look "right" (looks a bit too boxy). The way the sides are curved/blended looks good!

By now you have all seen pics of the red pig below... The pics I posted earlier in Paul"s thread (sorry for the hi-jack) were of the car before I fell down the slope and cut her up for my 934ish interpretation. I loved the way the DP air dam looked and still think it one of the best looking/most aggressive for these cars.

Felt good to finally turn the chaos corner and begin re-assembly last night... alas, two steps forward, one step back.

2fwd: got back from paint, mocked up install of the valance and Setrab. That Setrab's an awesome piece and fits the valance perfectly. Lovin the look:




1back: While the pieces came out great... the paint don't match. Grrrrr. Too orange. Dunno how, I'd given him my already painted mirrors and rear bumper that he could have checked for match - d'oh. Goes back for re-do tomorrow, oh well.

And of course from the files of I RULE... I re-assembled the rear bumper and mirrors... and THEN noticed the mismatch. Awesome. Bonehead.

And then... ah... some D-Zug guudness. While Roland's shifter of theirs had some issues... this piece is fookin JEWELRY... sooooooooooo niiiiiiiiiiice. The welds and finish work are excellent, and it's featherlight. Can't wait to get the car back on the ground and install:



Time to pull the H1s for refurb. May have misplaced the ring 'clips' (wires)... fukk. Hope not. Doubting they're available?

I purchased the same air dam from AIR. Sent the car to my body guy and it the spoiler fit so poorly that I really needed to start over. I would have had more in labor just to fit the spoiler than cost of the spoiler plus paint. So I sold the AIR spoiler and went back to a RUF one that I had originally purchased for the car.

So my first thought was the correct one in this case - lol

Paul, ask your painter if he used a base clear instead of single stage…that can make GR have an orange tint to it...

not sure what your point is here - where did I say or show anything about fit whatsoever?

I clearly said - and the pictures clearly show - the above being an initial mock fit. My gripe was regarding the particular tint of Guards Red. Nothing about fitment.

I had my paint guy trim a few mm's off each of the side bellows areas making them longer. That's it. Fits really great otherwise.

You powers of astute deduction and perception then mustn't like my H1 fitment or excessive wheel gap shown in these pics either eh? And boy does that D-Zug strut bar fit sloppy! Like it's not even connected!

thanks for your constructive input though

Heh yeah mini projects indeed... fukk... I'm up to my eyeballs in twigs 'n berries here. Parts everywhere and growing by the minute. End results will be uber, so keepin my eye on that prize dispels all angst.

Gonna be tits when done...

I've got yer "source filter" swangin' right here, buddy boy!

Good progress on the car, and I know the "do over" feeling well (either due to my own errors, or the errors of those whose work I've paid for) - not too uncommon, unfortunately!

alllllllllllllllllllllllllrighty then

socannot believe I am about to even admit admitting this

um, yeah... my recent paintwork doesn't match my Guards Red car

because

well, errrrrrrr uhhhhhh... my car ain't Guards. It's fookin INDISCHROT... Indian Red!!!

Now there's something I was completely floored by. Genius me in my infinite brilliance FAILED to make note of helllllo the paint code sticker in the RF inner fender under the carpet. Duh?

Always just ASSumed it was Guards. I mean, when I say Guards, this is what I think of.

I'm mortified. Tho, I'm only 1/2 to blame - my poor paint guy coulda shoulda freakin noticed the parts I handed him did not look like the parts he returned. D'oh.

He picked it all up tonight and is scuffing / reshooting. No biggie. But again, embarrassing.

I'm more just literally floored I did not know this. Colossal D'ohage!!!

What say you? Did you all know 'this'? Guards is more orangey red, Indischrot is redred. My car's cleared too - tho, it's a repaint.

WEIRD!

So, Mr. I can't tell red from very red, what color is this -

And yes, you are probably the only person on that planet that has heard of guards red but does NOT know what it looks like!

I am sorry but that is kinda funny, but yes, I agree he should have done the comparison on the parts you gave him.

Hey I said it was painfully embarrassing to admit... I'm man enough for that at least. If nothing more, I enjoy a good laugh @ mesself especially.

I got this car in '07 and am just figuring this out... ouch. Dunno how this has never come up before... like I said, weird.

Paulass, I just had a thought (the first one today, of course, being a TexASS resident and all) - I bet this color trickery is your poor car's way of exacting a little vengeance for all of the abuse it has suffered by your hand: beginning with cosmetic surgery to the distinctive, rearward facing bumper tits, continuing with replacing its proper wheels with those playa' playa' rimzzz, and culminating with the addition of the DP style cattle catcher! You didn't think that those travesties would be without repercussions, did you?

Seems the guy that mixed the paint color should have gone by the paint code. If he never asked for it that sounds odd these days. Hope it comes out nice.

With the added layer of red paint it should hold up to inevitable paint chips longer before primer or gelcoat starts to show through them.

It's both our faults - it's a friend doing this as side work out of his employer's body shop. I'd dropped the bits off and said "Guards". My fault. He had my Indischrot bits in hand which he could/should have noted right away something was awry. His fault.

No biggie, it came out great just wrong shade and will come out great again - like Jim said, nice and strong.

I'm just simply floored as to the fact I nor anyone else ever knew this about the color. That's all.

Fret not, Ronnie... I'm not doing any of this seeking yer approval nor accolades. Is going to look utterly tits (not titsly utters) when all's wrapped up in a few weeks. Getting there.

Just scored some really slick Smart Racing rotor hat ducts / block off plates / tubes (the ones Toby cloned but since I lack his mad fab skillz yo, I jumped @ some lightly used bits) which I can now plumb to the cattle catcher... schwing! Will vent me new Porterfield R4S's nicely... I'd found my Textars were toast when I'd pulled the Fuchs.

Fme tho, damn these classifieds here are just outrageously DANGEROUS... Danger Will Robinson!!!
