Good to see you again Gary, it must have been a couple of years since we last bumped into each other.

The trip home was much better and hardly a car on the roads to Peebles.

Thanks for your kind words about the car, that must have pushed the value up a few grand Floor

Lots of shiny bits now, so shiny the main man Garry caught himself in the reflection.

Lots of fiddly bits to get the car back together. I’m pretty certain Garry taught me a few new swear words when explaining the install of the back window.

OPC sourced rubbers and it would appear no holes for cables to the rear heated screen?????





The sunroof seal is always a bit tricky but Garry appears to have done a good job here.

So here it is the finished car. As some may know I actually got the car back late July last year just in time for the Yorkshire region PCGB show at Lotherton Hall. I am absolutely chuffed to bits with the finish and credit Garry Rowe From GBR at Throckley for all his hard work. It took a while as he just fitted it in with other work he had on. I wasn’t in a particular hurry so I had no problem with this. He has done great work on several of the cars we regularly see on this forum so no doubt more of his work will appear in the future.

For now here are the photos from Garry just before I picked it up and one from Lotherton. I have yet to really go over it and give it a good polish and get into all the corners but it still looks fantastic. Stay tuned there is a lot more to come!!!!

So after getting up to date on the bodywork that has been done now for the next instalment.

Almost immediately after getting back from Lotherton Hall last year and after a year off the road I headed off to have the car serviced at local specialists D&G Porsche. Looking to have a major service performed and maybe sort out a few of the troublesome oil leaks. It soon became apparent that this was not a quick fix. The guys advised that the oil leaks were now so significant that we should consider the slightly bigger job of a rebuild. So after a huge intake of breath in we went!

Here we go again!

Can anyone tell me if there is a common fuse which would account for a lack of front fog lights, rear fogs and reversing light?


I have checked all bulbs and they look to be ok. I have no idea how long these haven't been working and the MOT man is not a happy bunny!!
