Porsche 930 RS Rennfrog

It's another story of a slippery slope and it's a long one. I don't want to spoil the journey by showing the result. So let's start at the beginning.

The car started as a nice euro 930 3.3l which rolled out of the factory in 1983. Like all 930 of this era, it came standard with a lot of options/accessories....

So we quickly started disassembling it, cleaning, and removing bits here and there...

The sunroof was welded in place. It was well done and it has not cracked since then.




The weight saving includes the casing/motor and hardware.

Once the sound deadener layer was removed, we also started to remove some electrical components that will no longer be of use.

Both doors fully converted to manual. It is not so much for weight saving but rather for simplification / and look.

And now the ugly... The body is absolutely rust free BUT a PO thought it would be smart to spray a rubber based protective coating in all compartments / wheel well / underbody. That thing is just horrible to deal with. We have tried all sorts of method.
And first we did the trunk.


Which first looked like that after our first effort (also note the RSR welded in strut bar)

The body received further modifications : removal of front fender turn indicators, antenna delete. It was time for a new paint job, the first one...

Interesting. I kept the power windows in the doors so I could run the cage closer to the door panel.

I'll be watching this build.

I like the swap to manual windows. What was needed to do the swap?

First you need to fully strip the door (and remove the window frame). Obviously you need a pair of manual regulators. They are not always easy to retrofit to more recent windows : the "rail" which is glued to the window has been redesigned in late 70s and the updated version will not fit on manual regulators. On my car, it was simpler to change the windows (I had a pair laying around).

If you want a true backdate look, there is another operation to remove the rotative locking system (77 on). You need to change the pull lever (taller on older cars to be operated directly by pressing on the button) and the locking buttons.

All in all, nothing difficult but a long job to do it correctly.

The AC system has been entirely removed down do the last hose/bracket/bolt.
On the body some welding was required to fill different holes in the front trunk.

At that point the car was re-painted in original platinum metallic. Sorry for the crappy cellphone pics...

The car was then brought to Rennfrog in the suburbs of Paris. This was a year ago. You can also have a glimpse at some of the modifications in the interior...
