I am going to convert from flag mirrors to aero mirrors and was able to source both drivers and passenger mirrors plus spare mirror. The mirrors are off a 993, so I ordered the 928 base plates from Roger.

I purchased used recondition RH cup wheels. 8.5 x 18 fronts and 10 x 18 rears. The wheels are suppose to fit the 928 with the offset. I have confirmed the rears will, but not 100% sure on the fronts. The wheels were to good to pass up, they have some scratches and a few broken fake Allen bolt heads. I have already purchased replacement OEM Allen heads and plan on painting the center section the same color as the car......going with a Porsche metallic gray called Achatgrau, which is used on the panamera.

Got first coat of sound insulation sprayed on after numerous hours of scrapping off the adhesive.
I have one more coat and then two coats of the heat insulation. After that I will install a layer of sound mat.

Finally all done spraying interior. Two coats sound insulation and two coats ceramic (heat) insulation. I will let harden for a week and then add the sound pad.

Replaced rubber donut is steering stem. I ordered replacement part from our host and it is a bit different as far as the inserts go. I punched out the inserts from both old and new and used the old inserts in the new rubber, otherwise the new part would not directly bolt on.

Installed firewall heat shield on top of the sound insulation and ceramic heat insulation. Factory had a very thick blanket, so I am hoping that I have upgraded.

Thanks for the update.

What did you use for the heat insulation?

I used Cool it Thermo tec. The material has the woven back side which is like the Kevlar material they wrap pipes with. I buy it through Kartek. The spray on material is called Lizard skin.

Looks like nice stuff.

Did you use that on your other builds too?

Yes, the material is very easy to use. I have never had a problem with delamination or peeling on the other builds and our off-road race cars. The pictures do not show the little details, but there are a lot of piceces cut to form to the fire wall. I use a roller like for wall paper and a plastic door panel tool to smooth the material out.

Received some of the LS conversion parts from Renegade. Everything looks nice. Stage II pressure plate with upgraded Kevlar clutch disc. Modified bell housing and adapter, motor mounts and some other hardware. A little disappointing that the bolts for mounting engine mounts and pressure plate are not included or discussed, so had to order. This is not your typical upgrade kit with instructions.....there are none. They have provided some pictures of other installs and you have to try and figure out what is going on. They are good about answering questions though and there really isn't that much guessing, at least that is what I am saying now.
I need to finish up running lines on the underside and firewall before dropping motor in for test fit. I hope to get that done this week. Torque tube and rear suspension is way behind schedule and not expected for another couple weeks

Ran fuel lines, brake lines and battery cable on the bottom side. Also got a some if plumbing done on firewall. Going back together is a lot slower.

Purchased new brake booster, master cylinder and clutch slave cylinder. Since I really don't have any history on the maintenance of the car, I am going to replace some of the key mechanical components. Easier to now than later.

Doing all of that with the engine out makes a ton of sense.

For whatever it's worth I'm much better at taking stuff out and putting it back in, especially if it has to work once installed. Grin.

Thanks for the update.
