Nice to meet you Graham Thumb

As I said today the quality of your car is superb! It could be a factory production that's for sure. Very, very neat indeed.

Great to meet you too Graham. Your vision and 9M's skill adds so much to our 993 community. Will certainly stay in touch and hopefully get together for a Northerners meet sometime soon. A dry day in The Lakes or Pennines would be awesome.....

I have just lost an hour and a half 'skimming' through this thread, and what an amazing level of workmanship and commitment to make a good car into an amazing car.

I have never really been a fan of Cobalt Blue, but it looks stunning on the speedster.

Your final choice of wheels are perfect and I would vote for the all blue, no silver finish to keep her looking pure.

Congratulations and well done on an epic transformation.

Excellent, you've even colour coded the lift! Shame about that silver thing cluttering the place up... Very Happy

Looks like the speedster sits neatly up in the eaves.. thumbsup

Hi Ted - it's 9M who are doing it - Speedster #3 for a Hungarian guy by the name of Arpad. He came over in April and met with 9M and then came and had a look at and a drive out in mine.
I should be on commission with them - number #4 is waiting in the wings to be converted, and I believe there may even be serious enquires for 2 more!

I LOVE this, always have Gemballa 993 Extremo Speedster. FABULOUS. An example of when Gemballa got it 100% right.

Has a Hardtop too, looks good

There was a yellow version I looked at buying once, in USA, slightly damaged,

The lengths and expense some OCD garage owners will go to....chopping the roof off to fit under the eaves just to keep the garage original. Or was it the planning laws.... Grin

Just came across this thread...........wow, Graham you created an awesome car. Thanks for the very enjoyable breakfast read. So glad I came to it after it was finished, the 'work in progress' suspense would have killed me! Well done, hope it is giving you many hours of pleasure!

I was recently told about this thread, and what can I say aside of fabulous?!! Both cars are stunning. I love the Arena Red (including the yellow accents) on JP's, and I love the finer attention to detail (including Sport Classics and contrasting titanium-colour bits 'n' bobs) on Graham's...

Awesome work and credit to both owners for their efforts and perseverence, and, of course, to 9M for its quality work!

Have you incorporated some form of under-tray on the top level frame?

Water from the air-conditioning unit, oil from the engine, gearbox, etc. Even if bone dry now, might leak at some point.

Hi Graham, as long ago as, was it 2008 where we briefly met on that saturday RS day at Oulton Park I believe you'd just outed an Aston at the time. 993 was written all over your face believe it or not.
Hope you're well.
Paul

Oh yes - hi Paul, I remember the conversation well! Time flies, and I do enjoy a little project to keep myself busy!

I've just winterised the Speedster, SORN'd it till next spring, and hope I can use it more in 2013! This year has been such a wash out, i've only done about 500 miles. So p...ed off with weather, been seriously considering parting with the car and buying something much newer....but more useable. Can't quite convince my OH that we need another 'sensible' Porsche in our car fleet!
