Fresh paint pics-951

Well I finally got her all back together and driving again. Next week "Big Reds" for the front and powder coated fronts on the rear as well as Zimmerman cross-drilled all the way around. Fresh turbo-S motor waiting to be dropped in (or raised in) after I drive for a while.

Huntley MAF, Lindsey stage 2 head, K27 turbo, baffled pan, cross-drilled crank, stainless headers, tial wastegate, BOV, stage 2 chips. She goes fast so now I am going to do the brakes. I bought a turbo-s 50,000 mile motor that is being completely redone for power and reliability. Also just got 12-way heated seats that are being converted to sports (larger bolsters) and recovered in leather.

Car looks great. Sounds like you're spending some big $$$ on that thing too!

Wish I could spend that much on mine.....I need to buy a house first.

All my vehicles are paid off so I figure if I enjoy the vehicle why not spend some money. Most of my friends are doctors or professionals and spend $50-60K on a vehicle then turn around and sell in a year or two when they are upside down! They all love my 996 and 951 and think i'm up to my eyeballs in payments, when I tell them there paid off they can't believe it. So keep what you love to drive, pay it off, then spend some money it. Thanks for the compliment.

Easy in theory, difficult in reality


NICE car. I have always been a big fan of those side skirts. Your tires/wheels fill out the wells nicely, too.

That is a Lindsey Racing header panel. Side skirts and rear bumper are GT-Racing.

Very nice. I haven't ever seen that nose panel before, probably gets plenty of air over the intercooler.

Rear Bumper?

How was fitting the Gt Racing "euro style" rear bumper? I have heard they are not easy to get on since they have no factory mounting locations? Any details would be great!

Looks nice!!

It took some work! I fabricated an aluminum substructure so the bumper wouldn't twist or torque around when fastened then used the fiberglass tabs that are inside to bolt into the same factory bumper-shock holes. It definetely is NOT plug-n-play, but worth it. The factory bumper weighs a ton compared to the GT bumper. The only down side is no rear protection.

Did you have your car professionally painted or did you do it yourself? What kind of paint? Looks great.

Good friend and patient of mine did it, and I helped. He usually only does 100k + hot rods but decided to slum and do my porsche. We used top end PPG. I plan on driving this car daily so it will probably get chipped up so i'll have to do it again in about 4-5 years. Thanks for the compliment, I just posted to hopefully inspire others to take care of their 944's and 951's. I have always loved this body and ride.
