Looks good. Do you know what the offset or backspacing of the wheel is?

Backspacing

BRAIDusa

I don't know the offset/backspacing for that trial fitting (it's a different rim). I will post the final setup when the minilites are mounted.

Centre caps be gone!

I love your minilites, but have you tried them without the centre caps? Might make them look wider and a little more "oulaw. Give it a shot.

Steering wheel

I was gonna go with a Momo protipo, but I had this Nardi
I love the look of the Nardi (even if it is mismatched for a 911)
I am worried it may be too big (diameter)...if I don't like it the boss will also fit the protipo

I think it looks cool. The wood and metal elements in the wheel both compliment and contrast with the rest of your build. Size of steering wheel looks proportional to me anyway.

Is your super sweet Nardi a 380mm wheel? I believe the wheel that came on the car was 380mm.

How'd you decide on the 3.4? What hp do you expect out of it?

What are you doing for the 3.4? Would be interested in intake, cams, pistons/compression, ignition, exhaust.

I went cup style airbox, 66mm throttle body, 964 cams, 9.8:1 single plug 3.4L max moritz pistons, SSI's. Got the SSI's before I opted 3.4, so might replace them with larger headers. Will see.
