I was thinking this too. JR are you building an SCRS clone? I love the front as a smooth lightweight replacement. The only other front glass bumper I like is the Iroc, but don't really need a center mount cooler for a street car. I think I would go with the n/b TRE rear bumper.

No, not building a clone of an SC/RS. Those are all widebody cars. Just building a lightweight narrow body car, more similar to the 911 Clubsport prototype that Porsche built in 1984.

I've looked at lots of fiberglass bumpers and they all have something or other I don't like about them.

rear bumper is the same as the standard iroc bumper that is already available from several suppliers

Well , essentially yes on the 11" back bumper being the same as the IROC version being sold by a different suppliers
BUT there is a small difference : the rear reflector bases. The bumper has a small stand molded into the bumper on each side of the license lamps to support the reflectors

sorry for this poor pic, but you can see the stand behind the reflector.

Dave is right. The issue that I have is that there are several suppliers of the IROC-style stuff and they all have differences. What catches my eye the most are two things; the radii of the corners of the "bumper" part of the moldings and how they are blended into the wheel arches. I'd like both ends to match and I'd really like a softer radius than what I've seen so far. If I cant have what I want, and if I decide not to make my own, I thought I'd maybe use something that Porsche actually used at one point. What springs to mind is the club sport prototype, which was built around the same time as the 911 SC/RS series of cars, thus the similarities in appearance between the two car's bumpers.

As of lunch time we had two narrow rear bumpers in stock. We have inventory on the reflectors also.
Call and ask for Earl. He's our Internet Sales manager.

So they do make the matching rear bumper? When I looked at the web site, I didn't see any mention of it.

You do have to modify the door to mount it.
Correct. The mirror upper part was used on the 924, 937 (924 CGT), 944 cup, amongst other cars. It is essentially a VW Rabbit mirror.

The base for the 924/44 is unique for that door. The base for the 911 SC-RS is unique for that door. Neither, IIRC, are the same as the base for a Rabbit unfortunately!

Pretty car!

Here are some pics of a 75 SCRS. That was being actively raced at the time 2014 I think.
This was at a small Tarmac rally in central Germany.

Third pic shows the mirror , different base than the ones you are thinking about







Coming from the US. I asked if the car was a clone, the guy just laughed at me.
Said it is a factory original.
He had been season champ with the car for five years, so no telling what all had been touched over the years

Cheers Richard

RS 3.0 vs SCRS vs RSCS.

Thanks, Richard

but for that "not besttime" rallye events very reliable!

he has a second one with nearly the same optic... ...but with a glas sunroof

Thanks for the clarification Tom.
Don't know why he wouldn't just say that.

I have limited exposure to the low production performance models, being bs ed doesn't help the learning curve.

Cheers Richard.

This should confuse everything. If it's a real rubber lipped tail, it would be correct for RS 3.0
