924 Turbo Nose Panel

I would like to install the 924 turbo nose panel on my 951, however someone was telling me that it is not a direct bolt on. Does anyone have more details on this, and what would be required to make it work?

Thanks,
~Eric

I've seen one installed but can't remember much more than there was bondo involved because some of the final sanding wasn't so hot and burned through down to the filler.

If I were ever to do this I would get a 931 panel and the plastic vent inserts. Take that along with my 951 panel to a sheet metal shop and tell them to duplicate the holes and roll the metal properly. Then take it home and paint it.

The 931 valence is not a direct bolt-on to the 951. The 951 header is slightly steeper in order to clear the intercooler. What Iceshark said - there's a post on Rennlist right now about how exactly to do it (dimensions, part #s for the louvers, etc) by a guy in New Zealand that has done it and done it beautifully. Here's the info:
