Bumper bar fitment? Anyone?

Gentlemen.

My 1982 SC has been slightly modified. It now has the appearance of the well known 993 Turbo S. All steel conversion.
The car was build 3 years ago by Precision Porsche in CA.

Even though the car is just great, I still need some advise regarding some minor issues.

1. The inner fenders...they are not there...it's wide open and I need to do something about that. What will fit?

2. The front aluminum bumper bar/ beam is not there. I would like to have one.
What do I use? the 911 SC or the 993 bumper bar/beam? Modifications?

Thank You.

the 911 does not use a fender liner . the 993 does but does not fit to the 911 body . you would have to fab some up . as for the bumper re-bar (reinforcement bar )you would also have to fab one as well . for the 2 911 to 993 conversions i did . we chip guarded the wheel wells just the way the 911 are . the re-bar we made out of 1 1/2 "x 2 1/2 "x 1/8" inch aluminum boxed tubing and flat stock .

Mr.962.

Thanks for the input on the liner. I will improvise.

About the reinforcement bar, my guess was that the original 911 bar would be difficult to adjust. The 993 is 2 in shorter than the 911 and my guess the those 2 in is the difference in the bumper covers, front and back.

Did You, or anyone else, try to fit the original 993 front reinforcement bar?
I would think with some alterations, I could make it fit.

Thanks,

H

we did not try to fab the oe bumper re-bar . the owner of the 2nd car we did had a hole 993 parts car but the drive train . unlike the 1st car we did were there was just parts . the re-bar came out so dam good on the 1st car . we just used the same templates and set up for the 2nd car . my thinking was why should we start from scratch and try to fab and modify the oe re-bar . when i have all the info from the other car .

Alright...

I think I will just go ahead and get hold of the 993 bumper bar with it's accessories and see what I can do.

I think It should be fairly straight forward to get it on. I'll get some pictures taken.
