The magazine Total 911 Issue 6 Nov 2005 ran an article on the updating of a 996 to 997.

Also, heres one on youtube...

Okay, i'm on this boat too. I'm thinking about getting an X-50. I have never liked the 996 lights and the turbo is no exception.

So how about a face lift - bumper, fenders, lights, mirrors, hood etc ?

Lets take a regular 996TT like this or one of the million seal grey models..


and turn it into some wonderful play thing like this. BTW, I'm really looking for yellow or red but if I get a deal on seal grey - its going blue.


Do the 997 parts fit with some help? Please don't chime in with any purist nonsense.

Thanks

Augustus, If you would like to scan and email the article from Total 911, I would appreciate it.

Folks,
I'm looking for other pelicans that have experience with this conversion.
