    Hey Kurt,

    I have LEDs that cure that problem. No modifications needed, just like replacing one of the bulbs and your gauges will be BRIGHT!!!

    I have a 1987 911 Porsche Carrara with stock gauges... I'd like to keep the stock gauges but at night I can hardly read them... The lighting is so dim (which I hear is a common problem with older model Porsche gauges).... I found a place in California that could install LED strips inside the gauges to improve lighting for around $275. Is there a local person that can do this work in the Seattle area?

    KTL - Thanks - I decided to buy the 993 wheels and worry about getting the spacers later... They were such a good deal...

    993 wheels can be used two ways:

    1. Buy aftermarket wheels by Miglia 1000 which have the correct offsets built into the wheel hubs themselves. These wheels are heavy cast alloy wheels and not very strong. I had a set and they suffered many bends from road damage by previous owner of the car.

    2. Acquire OEM Porsche 993 wheels and use wheel spacers or wheel adapters. This subject has been covered numerous times on the 911 tech forum. Do a search and you will find many answers. The simple answer is the front wheels require a 1 inch spacer and the rear wheels require a 1-1/2 inch to 2 inch spacer to properly fit.

    I have a 1987 911 and there is a whining noise in the front under the hood... sounds like the whine from a pump - been going on for sometime and does not seem to effect the running of the car... is this something to be concerned about or is this a normal noise? I am wondering if this may be the fuel pump making this noise?
