Very nice n coming on well.

Be interested to see how the 200 cell cats go. Are you getting it re mapped too?

Do folks put the gt3 74 mm tb and ipd plenum onto the 3.4 engines to get a bit more air flow and power out? Could be a good mod with the 200 cells and re map

No remap for me, don't think there is a larger TB for the cable throttle cars.

So Id thought about going with black wing mirror caps and a black side decals just for something a little different but then like the styling package that the new 991 Carrera T come with so Im going to try replicate that.

Hopefully it will be on the subtle side. First piece bought, some seal grey wing mirrors so I'll swap over the caps. Next I was looking at the side decal as per the 991 as its not OTT. I quite like it and was going to get it in the same colour to match the wing mirrors. Only thing Im not sure on is the text, should I put Carerra or Carerra 2 or just leave blank? Im erring on no text.

Last part would be refurb the wheels in the same colour. I think this will all tie in well and its all easily reversible.

Thoughts?

I think it will look good on a C2 as they are not as fussy as a turbo or GT car down the flanks with all the vents and spoliers.
you will need dark wheels though to carry it off as it will look a bit odd? especially with black mirrors.

did you put the 200 Cells on and thoughts?

Still doing a running period to check oil again and sump off for tensioner bits so not really doing adding anything until that's all clear.

I remember your 4S... you got that looking great if I recall.

Itll be interesting to see this one coming together.

Thanks, didn't do much to the 4s when I had it. Helped with a nice spec from factory.

As per my other thread Ive found no more issues with the engine so Im happy its alright to start the changes.

So much so I stumbled upon these at lunchtime on ebay with 15min left so bid and won them. Chuffed as there the exact spec I would order from new. 8in et50 and 10in et40.

They have really good winter tyres fitted so I'll throw them on then swap over the summer tyres from the Panamera's when its nice weather again.

Probably sell the Panamra's on, maybe with the winter tyres all fitted if anyone is interested Thumb

Managed a few jobs tonight, decided I'd not inspected rads yet so bumper off. I decided to take out arch liners as well to inspect the inner sills as well.
They appear okay with very minimal surface corrosion which I rubbed where I could and sprayed in some stone chip I had sitting and also treated some very small bits on the inner arches as well. Ordered some Dinitrol cavity wax to get right in. Need to get in from rear end as well.

Rads were all fine so cleaned up. Drilled a few drain holes in the shrouds at lower rear so help with flushing out when power washing.

I had some mesh sitting around so put that on bumper to stop leaves getting into rads. Also tried out this universal splitter I had, the car had a small lip spoiler from aero kit but this is wider. Not the best close up if I'm honest but I'll see what its like.

Just waiting for these wheels then I'll look at getting exhaust and LTT done.

Inner Sills all coated with cavity wax along with the seam and lower section on the rear arches. I coated rear arch pieces with stone chip as well. Was going to leave the arch trim off but refitted and will remove to wash it out after 6 months for a look.

Note brown sections are the cavity wax not rust.

Wheels arrived today out of nowhere, they had appeared to have been lost.
Rushed home from work keen to check rears and they fit, just. Tyre has a very small poke but I'm fine with it. Fronts I might get away with 15mm spacer to even out track increase as much as possible but I'll try 9mm to start with.
In the house getting waxed at the moment.

Are they widebody offset? I drove a car with widebody rears once and the tyres touched arches on bumpy roads.

There 10in et40 so low offset for narrow body. Fronts I have 15mm spacers fitted to even out track increase a little. No scrubing when I went for a quick drive earlier over some bumpy back roads.
