This light has never been touched.. I'd say for nearly 40 years!

I'd also like to get my inside doors detailed out. Bought cleaner wax and carnauba was as well.





Was not there a large deal before repaint, or did the Euro cars not have one like this?

I have never seen a RoW 1979 930 with that emissions label.

If they did have one that is news to me.

I could me wrong but again I have never seen that label on anything but US and Canada 930s.

Iíve also added some c boxes in my console these are quite hard to come by. I need to paint them black but really liked the red.

Iím tempted to leave them red.

Glad you enjoy detailing. Personally, I think 930s are far more fun to drive than to clean.

You should try it.

I am not familiar with Euro cars, so that is why I was wondering. Your 930 looks like a very nice concours contestant once you finish the restoration.

Thanks, long long long way.. Porsche concours events are unbelievably hard to even enter. Attention to detail is beyond comprehension at times..

Do you know what country your car originated? If so, you can go the the Porsche Classic website for there (for example, Porsche Classic UK), open the parts catalog for your year, and there will be a page(s) showing all the stickers the car came with.

For sure.
I was fortunate to get most of my 930s ( some, decades ago) mostly carefully owned so I can not take credit for the show winning condition. I stopped judging concours 2 years ago, ( Porsche concours even long before that). Sold many of the 930s that I entered , still have lots of trophy's ( and a few 930s, see them @ www.voitureltd.com ) in the different classes I had entered. Still was fun to participate.

Beautiful day for detailing

Just applied 3 coats of wax and I have to say the paint shines to its highest level yet. After my 30+ hours detail of the door jambs I figured I needed a good detail of the paint to match. The shine is now simply amazing I feel that the waxing has brought it out even more.

Nice job. Done right, single stage paint is amazing. Especially like the engine compartment.

Looking great! I detailed mine today with $3.00 in quarters at the local car wash to high pressure off the nasty cloud of dead bugs I hit the other day (well, they weren't dead until they slammed into me at speed). Good 'nuff for me, for now

Did you ever figure out the light issue?
Due to a short in the tail lights I just learned the light is powered from the left rear tail light circuit.
So the running lights have to be on to get power to it. It's not hot all the time.

Second there is a flat connector for the harness in the left rear corner of the engine bay. It is about 2" from the six pin that goes through the body. See if its connected. Grey/black wire. The ground for it connects next to the CDI with the body ground.

No I could never get it to work.. I suspect it has something to do with a ground somewhere. I have been told that the ground wires can become problematic.

I had to give up and add it to list the list of things I will leave for the pro.

Thanks Iíll try that again but I remember spending 3 days clean polishing on that project with no success on a working light.

I’d like to add this link

The harness is very short and both connections are easy to get to.

The harness ground exits by the hinge and connects at the ground strap point on the aluminum panel just below the CDI where the CDI ground and body ground connect.

Did you check for power to the light with the running lights "ON".
If there is no power to the circuit you will have no power to the running lights or the left rear running light specifically. I assume you have running lights, so the power is there.
The connection for the power is in the left rear corner next to the six pin that runs through the body. It's a grey wire with a black stripe that comes off the connector.
There is another single connection for the engine light 2" away from the six pin.

If you can fix your hinge you can fix this.
