New Rear Valance Install

Finally ordered a new rear valance, thought to be NLA for the 930, but Jim Ellis had them. i have seen videos on youtube of how to cut the right side but was unsatisfied with just cutting the whole right side off due to it being symmetrically uneven. So I cardboard template & used a dremel for this look.

Then some rattle can GP White & clearcoat


Finished look

Alex,

Nice job on the cut out.

Is your 930 a European model or did you convert the rear bumpers? If you did the conversion I would be interested in knowing what it takes as far as playing around and modifications needed.

Thanks,
Edwin

Formed edge, not rolled.

Alex, I used to have a Borla. I see it appears to be a bit "unlevel" from left to right. Mine too was originally like this, and I was able to bend the muffler by carefully and slowly picking up on the driver's side [while mounted]. This caused the DS to lift a bit and the PS to drop a bit.

If & when I attempt an adjustment of driver side I will heat the pipes & then try what you suggest. To do it unheated would just seem too risky of causing some damage at turbo mounting flange.
