Seria,
Welcome to the family. We need to see some pictures. It helps us to relate to you and your P-car.

One of the seat flexible shaft plastic cover was gone. I think this was repair in the past.



Bottom rear left canvas was broken

The meter is only 1800 km. Search the forum, it's the gear.






Here is the broken gear.

Hi there,
After all that, I need parts. Where is the best place for parts? I will need
- meter gear,
- carpet with sound proof materials,
- plastic gears for the seat and flexible shaft plastic cover,
- canvas top,
- hood and trunk shocks,
- tail light,
- one 12 point 10mm allen wrench,
- Fan belt,
- alternator belt,
- A/c belt,

Since all carpet are out, what else do I need to look out for. Once I get the 12 point 10mm allen wrench, will open up the alterntor and fan shroud because the fan is rubbing against the housing.

Will need all your advise.
Thank you.
Regards.

Welcome, you sure found some problems! Search the net - obviously a P dealer, or Pelican. I found used stuff on ebay for my car - but be sure it is in good shape before buying. I take it you are located in Europe?

I was unsure of where Brunei is located.
From the photos from your tourism agency, your country is beautiful!
Check out this site, the pictures are wonderful.

I have done many search and could not find the parts for the seat plastic bush, where it was install in the rail. Has anybody did a repair of this type? Does anybody has a picture of how the plastic bush looks like? Mine was gone into pieces when I take out the seat, therefore could not figure out how it looks like and how many per rail.

Convertible top - also did many search and could not find how to dismantle and fix a new hood.

Appreciate all the help out there.

Seria,
You may find that these are Recaro parts and not Porsche parts. If this is the case, it would be easier to find a car with a similar seat that has been sold to a car dismantler, or Porsche repair and parts house.

Oh man you really inherited a bunch of problems. How is the justice system in Brunei?

There is a company here in the states that deals specifically with odometer gears here is the link www.odometergears.com. Obviously you are going to have to find out where the leak is before putting it back together. Good Luck

Hi Seria,

It looks in similar shape to a water damaged 993 Cab I bought in Hong Kong last year, except mine is manual. It looks like you're doing a through revamp though, so you should be able to sort most of the issues. Are you doing the work yourself?

For parts sourcing and mechanical help, I would suggest you contact Andy Tatlow of Flat Six Road & Race Engineering based here in Singapore. Andy used to work in Brunei and is familiar with getting parts into the country.

Website: http://flatsixonline.com
Phone: +65 6458 1911

I had the gauges in my 964 refurbished by North Hollywood Speedometer (www.nhspeedometer.com) in case you don't feel like tackling the problem yourself. They will rebuild them like new.

The carpets in my 964 looked exactly like that when we started stripping her down. It's probably a combination of water seepage, and the factory adhesive not drying out due to our weather conditions. It'll be pretty expensive to get the factory stuff in, if it is even available. Why not go with something like Dynamat, and place a layer of new carpet over it?

Good luck!

Yes, I am doing the work myself.
Thanks for the website for parts. Will certainly contact them in the near future.
For sound deadening stuff, I purchase them from second skin.
Thank you for all the pointers.
Regards.
