2004 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Tue Nov 06, 2018 9:36 am    Post subject: More cheap mods!! Reply with quote

I was sent a rim-guard sample a while back which has just been kicking about so after a bit of a light bulb moment came up with the following use for it Laughing

Quick, cheap, effective & easily reversible - has stayed in place overnight Cool

I am not decided yet but thought I would share, the silver dash bar kit can be a nightmare to fit but this solution is a 10 minute job thumbsup

10/10 for recycling. I like it and was actually just looking at something similar the other day. Probably a different colour but something to break up the black dash.

Hmmmm…. that is ridiculous and pointless..... but rather inspired and brilliant.....

Very good thumbsup


Spending a bunch of money and crawling around upside down in your footwells sucks even more if this is effective(!)

Looks good

Also like the protector around the ignition - where did you get that?

Cheers

Excellent

More importantly, where did you get the double USB for the cigarette lighter? Would want to do this

Thanks

It's just this stuff.. You can get it in most colours. Has 3M adhesive backing as designed to stay put on wheels..

Cheers bud. Cheap mod's lol.. Ignition surround is just aerosol'd Silver Silk No.2 Grin

But to keep the purists happy I kept the original and sprayed another one which I got off ebay for a five spot Cool (They just pop out)

Ha Ha Thumb

More cheap or free mod's.. USB which is gloss black and looks like it came as standard was poached out of a trade p/ex - didn't affect it's value of course Smile

(It fits perfectly so was a right result)

Thanks for the comments chaps Thumb

Yes the USB is a Griffin I think, it pretty much pushes in almost flush and is gloss black so turns the 12v socket into a proper twin USB port and looks the biz Laughing

Red seat belts may come which is partly why I had Jack put a red centre band on my wheel, all nicely OCD with the red Brembo's..

Always mindful of not ending up with a Halford's special interior tho Hand
