This would be great separate thread. Interested to hear from others who may have installed this on their 911s. I suffered from some sticker shock, but if effective can budget accordingly.

Nothing huge. After getting my alternator, housing and fan back into place, I had tools all over the place. So cleaned everything up, put things away and restored my frunk tool box AND started her up again just to hear her purr.

Tomorrow, pending the weather, I'll drive her home and give her a much needed bath. Bugs all over from our late August Porsche trek after which the weather prevented me from taking her out of her house. Then I'll fill her up with fresh 91 gas (alcohol-free) and add some of that Chevron injector cleaner I got at Costco. PS: I don't willfully drive her in the rain.

Started the C4S engine for the first time after replacing the AOS, tensioners, IMS bearing (almost), flywheel and water pump. Was a very nervous moment as it rattled and vibrated like crazy, then I found it was the tensioners filling with oil (with advice from JFP at renntech). After a few finger-biting minutes of rough running, it suddenly went quiet and smooth. Phew!

Try a product called "Back to Black". It's better than an "Armor All" type dressing.

Finished up repainting my Fuchs. I stripped the old gloss black, painted the hearts Graphite, then used the pour method for the Satin Black.[IMG]Untitled[/IMG]

Nice. But be sure you remove the paint from the lug seats if you want your lug nuts to stay tight.

Yes, I definitely plan on removing paint from the lug seats. I used the taped washers to block the holes but they still get painted when you remove them to drain paint.
My biggest issue that wasn't addressed in any of the how-to's was removing excess paint that does not drain away in the outside channel. Difficult to mop it out with a brush while not spattering the surrounding area.

993 door seals

I replaced my 993 door handle seals. Was a great job to do and easy.

Installed a new head unit. Now I can stream music over blueteeth in a 30yo car. The pic doesn't really convey it well but the style suits the car IMO.

Fixed the cracked ashtray bracket with some contact cement and washers. Or, as my kids call it, "the WHAT?" They'd never seen such a thing.
