Me and the mrs love road trips into Germany and this Summer we did Berchtesgaden/Salzburg for the second time, we took her Boxster. The VW dealer in Berchtesgaden was one of the very first Porsche agents, unfortunately they lost their franchise in a big dealer shake up in the late 80’s I believe. They still have several images of their Porsche days in the showroom and several classic VW’s on show.

Starting to come together, I have a black Carrera script for the rear but may leave it ‘delete’

That is some serious attention to detail, respect for that - that is always my target but I think I may need to retire too to be to that level of detail.

Great post and please keep the detail coming. Thumb

So continuing with this at the weekend I fited the “factoryish” fire extinguisher kit.

I say “ish” as I discovered the VW fitting kit contains parts that are virtually identical to the Porsche items at a fraction of the price, £16, this includes the plastic holder/tray, the strap and the reinforcement bracket.

The remaining seat brackets were purchased direct from Porsche for about £80

The extinguisher is also available from VW and is the same 1kg Gloria, its £45

Fitting was straight forward with the seat removed from the car.

Once all that was done I set about removing the front strut, brake, hub and arms for a similar makeover as the rear

All the best, Paul

I should say that I fitted the amber side repeaters as a preference over the clears

So the strut was inspected, no corrosion or pitting to the operational length of the piston rod, no play or movement, slight corrosion to the body but not weakened. Therefore I decided to put off upgrading them until next Winters clean, instead I masked the piston rod and had a friend media blast the bodies, these were then etch primed and painted. The top mounts looked to have little wear in the bush but there was corrosion to the bare steel construction so new top mounts were ordered. The steel washer at the top of the piston had corroded and this was just starting to jump across to the chromed piston itself so new OPC washers were fitted. The friction bearing was stripped , cleaned, inspected and found to be good so simply regreased.
The coil spring was blasted and powder coated then had its pink/red poundage marks reapplied.

New control arms, drop links and TRE, GT spec plastic ducts fitted to the leading arm.

Whilst the bearing carrier and hub assembly was on the nench I thought it was wise to install a new bearing, I had the assembly media blasted then UPS’d it to D&G Porsche for them to remove/replace the bearing as I have no equipment for this.

I’ve now just started to strip and rebuild the front caliper , the dust shield has been powder coated and a new disc is waiting, HEL brake line installed, the hub should be back shortly and I can finish this side and do the same on the other.

Cheers, Paul

My extinguisher arrived from Germany this afternoon, managed to pick up two for £60, same 1kg Gloria as the Porsche one but red top instead of black.

So this fitted set me back £80 for the three genuine seat brackets from Porsche, £16 for the plastic tray, strap and bracket from VW and £30 for the extinguisher. Bar the colour of the cap and a slight difference in the strap it is identical to the Porsche set up of which there is a second hand one on Ebay for nearly £500 which is also missing two brackets.

Ruddy, this is a really enjoyable thread. It’s extremely satisfying to see such a clean car. Must be doubly so to actually do it all yourself. Please keep updating it!

I am assuming you are having some parts dry-ice blasted to get such a factory-fresh look?

Thanks, with a job like this it has to be hands on, paying an hourly rate to an indie to remove, clean or replace perfectly good parts would be a non starter, cheaper to buy a new 911 !

As to the finish its a mix between new items where cleaning/refurbishment approaches the replacement cost, lots of hands on cleaning prior to media blasting or vapour blasting and a mix of painted/powder coated items.

Most parts, even new, have had a light coat of satin laquer just to seal the raw metal from the elements.

Majority of nuts/bolts have been replaced with genuine fasteners, even nuts etc that are supplied with the new arms are replaced as the finish is not the original finish, often too shiney, I think this can be seen on one of the images.

Its certainly eaten a lot more cash than I intended but its no point doing half a job, I hope to go through the cooling system next and replace all the necessary items.

The car has already had a tandem pump, water pump, clutch, IMS seal , RMS and coil packs, all the exhaust has been changed including the manifolds (tubular manifolds, top gear 200 cell cats, 1” gundo).

None of the work was prompted by failure or issue but as a time served me hanical engineer in the nuclear industry I believe in pre-emptive maintenance .

Cheers, Paul

The attention to detail level is nuts. I love it.please keep updating this thread.

Also if you have the part numbers for the VW and Porsche parts for the fire extinguisher setup it would be helpful to a lot of us and save us money as well.

Hi guys , these are the part numbers that I used for the extinguisher fitted as per above.

Genuine Porsche Parts
99752125200 - seat bracket for right hand drive
99752184100 - reinforcer under seat
99752184300 - reinforcer under seat

Volkswagen Parts

Apart from these items all you will need is a few M6 nuts and bolts.
