Didn't get it sorted how i wanted so a few niggling problems but someone offered me ok money for it and with university starting in 2 weeks the money comes in useful.....

Anyway i shall be back hopefully as a Porsche is so much of a step up I'd have never normally have the chance so i risked it.....

Have fun all!

Btw £8k for Cat C 1999 911 tip needing a new cabriolet roof really, wheels refurbing and some paintwork finishing off with 130k miles (30k since engine rebuild) but with a hard top. Wanted £9k but needed service etc. No advertising needed so no time wasters.

Car cover is a Classic Additions Ultimate.
It fits the wing mirrors etc and is very snug!

Thanks for the person enquiring and supplying links to confirm:

HEL brake lines:
http://auto.helperformance.com/porsche-996

Car cover (didn't know it was outdoor but looks like it is because it is an 'Ultimate'):
https://www.porscheclubgb.com/shop/car-care/classic-additions/classic-additions-ultimate-outdoor-cover

It is actually better than that Porsche cover because it has pockets for the wing mirrors.

Pity you've sold up but it's for the greater good eh. Good luck with uni and I'm sure you'll reap the rewards and be back in something bigger and better in years to come. Thumb

Cheers mate. Gutted I've sold it but didn't have the time or the money to get it finished - £2000 would have seen it really nice!
A lot of the jobs I have done on other cars but I don't have a driveway to do it on - public parking or a garage you can't open a door in.

Hopefully uni goes how I want and as a graduation present I've already got my eye on a 911. Got the bug now... phenomenal cars!

You got strong money for it going off your description!

Shame to sell up, but time to enjoy Uni without messing with it!
