997 Safari/Rally Livery

Here is a pic of my 997 rally/safari/daily winter driver. I can't begin to tell you how much fun, yet practical, this car is. (roof rack is off getting powdercoated for the inevitable home depot trips)

I'm considering going to a livery set in an effort to grab even more attention , but haven't seen anything exciting on a black car.

Anyone have some photos of a black 997 in an interesting livery? don't want to wrap the entire car but rather simply do a vinyl decal set.

Thanks

Vin

Black Martini livery? I think there was a 936 painted like that. Or the 935 X-ray car? I'll try to find pics...

Also the Interscope cars:

There are a couple more obscure black 935 liveries. Cars that may have run in that livery for one race/year.

Not air cooled vintage, but I’m fond of the Alex Jov Racing 2010 #23 battery tender patron 997 Cup Car.

suspension is pretty simple actually:
-custom coilovers front and rear to get 2 inches of extra travel
-adjustable lower control arms to help get things aligned.
-some simple custom parts to take car of sway bars
-couple of brake mods to get everything to fit over my wheel choice (as opposed to getting an expensive set machined)
-slightest bit of rubbing under suspension compression and full lock.

I do stand the tires up (in keeping with most rally setups) as opposed to having a ton of camber like a track car.

Running a built 3.8L at just under 400hp, so this car is a hoot when there is limited traction on snow and mud!

I've been thinking of doing the same with another car (Mini Cooper S). Who did you work with on the coilovers? Can you elaborate on spring rates? To get 2 inches of travel did you have to add 4 inches of strut length?

These look cool but are worth more than the car!:

Ouch those are expensive!

I built my own coilovers, but I've got a huge machine shop at hand.

I can share springrates on monday

Except Milwaukee is a sponsor

It looks like I'm going down the martini look. My graphics guy promised to work something up I just need to give him some inspiration

Thanks for all the PM's and questions.

Martini Livery it is. Getting designed next week and printed/cut shortly thereafter.

Should be a fun look for a fun car.
