AndreasK, nice work.

I've been looking to do similar with my 1977.

Looks like you also did a rear bumperette delete.

What did you fill the holes with?

Are use using the original Euro rear rubber corner strips?

European vs US bumpers


Rear rubber strips be they Euro-spec or US, same length?
...........................................

Rear wheel flares, SC, ST or something else?

Thanks for the info, will do a search on those threads. I've only seen the custom light weight crush tube threads.

@kach22i

Holes in bumper was plugged with a JB weld type "metal".

The car is a US model, so the corner rubber is the US ones. However I think they are the same as the Euro.

The flares I actually think are "RS". Previous owner installed them. But they are pretty much the same as SC. Mine are fiberglass 😥 Next project will be to change them to steel😀🤓

Thank you for the information.

When I took my bumperettes off the steel bolts in them had expanded/rust and made the hole in the aluminum bumper irregular and enlarged.

I cleaned and then filled the hole with an epoxy faux metal in a small cylindrical container, similar to the below.

I think there might be better ways to do it, so thought I would ask.

I do like your wheel flares, not standard SC and would keep them.

How about your source for the rear plate lights? I just welded the bumberette holes on a spare SC bumper. I have a set of LED plate bolts but your clean.

Not shure what they are. Came together with some spare parts, when I bought the car

Iím not typically a fan of the stying changes made on 964s but man yours look really good. Especially with those wheel.

I too prefer G bumpers on a G body. Some of my favorite Porsches have accordions

Good job
