Cool My first 944 build

I bought a 1985 944 in October of 2014 for my wife as a Christmas present. I managed to keep it a secret until Christmas day. Needless to say the look on her face was priceless.

I managed to get most of the body work done before i brought is home so now the real fun begins. I'm not one to leave things stock so I have built a rear seat delete, custom front bumper, cup wheels, and a double den dvd player in the console. I am still working on the console and relocating the heater controls. will post pictures of how I did it when I'm done. I tried to find info on this being done after seeing a early 944 with this set up. I couldn't find anything so i decided to post how I did it here. If you have any ideas feel free to share.

Thanks

O and it is getting a custom Lamborghini Orange paint job!

Please don't take criticism the wrong way, but there's a huge speaker hole that would be perfect for customization.

Mine is stock location, aftermarket Alpine, and I can't see the radio display. It's all by feel, because it's down too low.

The look on her face was Priceless?, I'll bet it was!, it certainly wouldn't stick for me.... 'Happy Christmas Love, I've bought you a project car... for me!'

Well done you, and best of luck with the build.

here is a picture of it setting in place and working. i broke the lens off the oil pressure gauge so i need to fix that and put it back in the hole. also have a picture of the rear seat delete with the speaks and amp that i built. remember it isn't finished and all put back together yet. most likely will not be 100% until paint is done hopefully by the end of the month. still thinking about doing a small sub in the cubby in the the back corner.
