I enquiries about that, of one of the forum sponsors- the quote for the film came to more than my doors off respray.

Mornin' Neil and Y2K,

Thanks, collecting the seats later today. Very Happy

Y2, I think the car is a keeper. Question
I certainly wouldn't be pouring money into like I have/am if I thought I'd be selling anytime soon.
Having said that if I came into a load of money then I'd probably be back in a GT3 or sorted 964. However (and I've said this before) even when I had my GT3 and drove Craig's c2, I always questioned how much extra cash I had sitting in the GT3 given the low usage my summer cars get.

Money no object the GT3 is a cut above, but my C2 offers everything I need from a 911, classic 911 steering feedback, responsive engine with a great soundtrack and pretty soon the looks I love.

Aerokit parts are at the body shop with the car. I ended up getting a full respray. All will be explained when I cover it, but mainly it was to avoid trying to match 20 year old metallic black paint.

I should be collecting it this weekend but it will be a good month or two before it's done as my back garden is going to take at least another 4 weekends. I'll move onto the car whenever rain stops play on the garden. Wink

I'd love PPF but as Neil says it's as much as the respray again. I may get the vulnerable areas done (about £1500) or I may just leave it and get bits redone in a few years.

I'll weigh it up when it's back in use. Thumb

Liking this thread thumbsup

Especially the affinity with the 996 and R1 - I’ve got a 996.2 that’s slowly getting there thanks to the help,advice and the odd few parts sourced on this excellent forum. Also onto my fifth R1 (with odd Ducati’s Aprilia and S1000’s inbetween). Started way back with a blue 98, now onto a 2017 anniversary in yellow - There’s a chasm in power, electronics and outright speed and handling spread over the 20 years but the DNA is the same.

Loving the Porsche but when a lack of outright pace starts to bug out comes the yellow peril!

Seats look stunning mark. Very envious of those and actually think they stand out for being grey (in a good way). Your car sounds like it is going to be near perfect in my eyes pretty soon - well done.

As for the bike itch, it's one that I've never stoped scratching (currently have 3)

To be honest I normally sell a car before I even think of selling a bike as they are my main hobby. I have one to commute on, one for track days and one for looking at Laughing

Relatively speaking you can spend a very small amount on a bike for mind blowing performance which you will never find the limit of whereas you would be talking serious £££ to find that in a car. Just stay sensible and safe.

Cheers BHZ et al.

Seats collected today and every bit as good as in the pics.
Gear lever is great too. Left a tequipment handbrake grip to be done too.
That's a story in itself that bloody thing. Grin

Legz that thing is awesome. My favourite paint job on my favourite current bike. That's the type of bike I'd just go and sit and stare at in the garage whilst having a beer. Thumb

Gixxer - Too right. Even an old £3000 R1 would blow most people's minds if they hadn't been on a bike before. Nothing like that feeling of hanging on while the thing is trying to pull out from underneath you when you wind it on in 2nd gear. Very Happy
You're hardcore for commuting everyday though. Thumb

Thanks for the comments, I hope you get sorted with yours, either by getting it sold or continuing to bring it back upto scratch.


Good old pic Craig. Where's yours though. Happy times eh, before life got all serious.
Not the R1s best angle that but the GSXR looks good.

Random intérnêts threads have directed me towards this page Marky911, I found at tea-time, put the kid to bed and eventually pored a dram and sat down to enjoy.

Nice to see some old 911uk/PH usernames coming back up to reminisce but better than all it's nice to see your car being enjoyed (in it's own way). Funny how the old air cooled characters are now looking at 996s eh?

Thoroughly enjoyed the read bye

Hi Craig, long time no speak. I hope you're well and life is good at your end?

Yep, I enjoy whatever time I get on the car, with the bias heavily towards tinkering since buying, but the aim is actually to regularly drive the flipping thing at some point. Wink

I enjoy bringing things back up to scratch almost as much as I enjoy driving though so no rush. Once it's done I'll be bored so I'm enjoying the journey, as it were. Grin

What you in these days? Are you fancying some Pork?

-------------------------------------

As for my car. Some decent work happening soon. Can't wait to get stuck in.
