Now that the ventilation system is fitted, Rennfrog has finalised the braking system and the pedal cluster.




The rigid braking lines had to be modified to fit.







The rear light switch is visible here.





Pedal cluster finally in place.



Nice :-))





Braking force F and R is adjustable from the cockpit

Is that a aftermarket fresh air box? Where can I get one?

yes, but it has been modified to insert the "butterflies" (see the entire process described in post#140 above). It is sold bare by DP Motorsport in Germany.

In keeping with the spirit of this build, we replaced the electrical heating controller by the manually operated levers used on the early impact bumpers.

All parts duly restored.









A beige carpet was sourced at appbiz

We are blessed with quality options for the 930 shifter. We chose the rennshift as it came as a complete unit.









shift coupler was also upgraded

We changed the factory black window frames for chrome ones (actually clear anodised). We picked and chose the elements from various sets...

A good cleaning was on order





The "hinges" were also renovated

Time to mount the stock front bumper

Emblematic of early G body are the "periscope" washer jet. This nice repro set iscoming from Austria.

We deliberately fitted them non functional - to have the look without the weight penalty of a tank and hose..

However repros come without the fitting clips. We used calipers clips from Porsche.

AMEN!!!

I'm not easily impressed, but this is one of my favorite builds. Mind blowing attention to detail.

No expense spared, no shortcuts, no compromise. I know the car has been done (and revised?) and really look forward to future updates.

Thanks a lot for your encouragement :-)

The engine bracket was not rigid enough - so a gusset was added and holes were drilled for that RSR look. It is shown below before paint.





Doors fresh from the painter. cockpit side was painted black just like factory did.







Windows cranks have been converted to manual and the rack was refurbished.








The leather strap had to be brown to match ;-)

We chose to put a PC680 batterie - which is enough given that the eletrical system has been considerably reduced. As it is already very light, we kept it in its original location rather than moving it to the smugglers' box.
But black it had to be to look more factory.












A heated windshield was fitted - and we put the related switch in lieu of the AC blower switch.






The tartan covered door panel is ready to go in

Fuel tank ready to go with protective coating unerneath













all the ancilliaries are renovated.






Time to address a key topic on the 930: the gearbox. It is arguably the element that has received the most attention.
It is a great gearbox, designed for racing. Utterly solid, light and great to work on: a true gem of a gearbox. But... the fatory gear ratio are extremely long to reduce fuel consumption and noise level on the highway. We kept the first gear stock while the remaining 3 were shortened circa 10%.




We also installed an oil cooling system with electric pump.

The gearbox was also converted to a "short bell" type, by removing circa 27mm from the casing / the shaft. It is a great mod allowing to fit sachs sport 934 style clutch (removing 20 pounds of weight) whilst improving weight distribution.
