Drove mine dirty up Laguna Mountain to Pine Valley for a Frosty Burger. Then put it away dirty 😂

Played around with led lights .
On the brightest settings the look flared out in the photos , but itís not that bad to the naked eye .
Iíll probobly run around medium whenever I get this thing back on the road .

That came from the uk version of the car I’m just finishing now .
A guy called reap did the silver guages for porsche for the 993 turbo S .
He made mine based on porsches specs , but I added a few differences.
The faces had been in for about 20 years I guess , and had been in storage since I came to USA in 09
I just had them refurbished by john bell ready to go in the USA car .

That's cool. Would like to see those at some point.

John Bell is putting a set of G Body gauges together for me.

You’re welcome to come see the car when it’s finished .
Will be a while yet before it’s on the road though .
I’m sure you’ll be happy with John’s work , as I’m really happy with how mine look new again .

For black friday I got an orbital buffer and some cerium oxide, my windshield is full of scuffs not really scratches and not detectable if you run your fingernail across. I thought this would be quick work with the buffer but not to be. Spent 45 minutes on half the windshield and maybe a 50% improvement.

See what it looks like at night with oncoming headlights.... hopefully it won't leave a glare.

No spacers, considering a bit in the rear.

Got the webers back in my 72 after their cleaning and re-jetting to Paul Abbott's spec. Running sweet again.
