Update: Lost an axle at a stop light..luckily just taking off! The bolts backed out on the CV. Only 1.5 miles from home, flatbed went smoothly with no scrapes. Half hour later I was back in biz! I knew it had a slight vibe today, but never thought this would happen. As it turns out the axle/CV's are new and some smart bastard left off the wurth (?) washers. Time for suspension overhaul and other stuff anyway.

I am on the proverbial slippery slope as we speak....one loose tie rod end ended up being a total suspension rebuild... everything is of the car getting replaced cleaned and powdercoated etc.

So what exactly did I do today? I removed all the small clips that hold the AC hoses in place and added them to my box of parts headed off to get zinc plated. Anal yes but when its all done I will have replaced or replated a tone of hardware that will all shine new..

And all for no one to see except for me and my mechanic!!

WARNING! Grille badges are addictive. The 911S Registry forum started a Badgeaholics Anonymous

Any excuse we can get, eh? Besides I slacked off since it ran so well and the weather has been prime for spirited grocery getting. It's time to get back under there and upgrade.....modify.....er, uh....replace worn parts for safety's sake...yah, yah that's it. lol.

I poured the water our of the DriZair container sitting on the floorboard. Very satifying and best 'mod' to date.

Had to dig this up from page 3. This thread is much too young to die.

Drove mine to work today. Couldn't wait to get in this after work and drive home. Adjusted the rear deck lid latch (again), checked the oil, added half a quart and spritzed 'er clean.

Lookin' good Gint!

I removed the rear rotors, and studs. removed an old A/C line from under the front, cleaned the rear caliper hard lines, and shipped my rear calipers to Eric Shea at PMB....can't wait to see that fresh bling after this job is complete!

Have you seen the need for these items? Does the cooler cool enough with that loss of flow?

Here's some need:



Haven't got to run with the new protection on yet but without it the engine wasn't exactly HOT, though it did tick up slightly when the oil cooler got coated in mud.

If it proves too restrictive we can enlarge the holes or remove the cover, then resort to plan B.

Now that is what I would call driving a car like you stole it. Looks like fun if I was driving your car.

After looking at what Paul did, I got thinking again about an old subject. Fender liners. Does anyone make fender liners for older 911s like the new cars have. I have had some of the plastic pieces off of the bottom of my Boxster, and I sure wish we could fit something like that on our 70s 80s and 90s 911s.

I have a lot going on right now. Last night I installed the EGT Gage and boost controller in my home made console panel.


But thats till I get my rockers back from re bushing.
Engine is out for new clutch and odds and ends so I could fill a couple pages of this thread lately but I'll refrain.

I dont need the wheel liners like quattrorunner but man I wished we had them!

While poking around waiting to install my front suspension I decided that a cleaned up and plated washer bottle strap would be a fine waste of time andmoney....

here's what I found:


tons of caked on dirt/sand dust from living in VT/Upstate for most of its life






also, do we really need this much wiper fluid??? and on the same side as the battery andd driver??






here's my removed AC clips ready to get blasted andd plated! the ultimate bling!
