Started the plug, lead change. Lower cam cover leaking again. Started on the right side to get at no 6 plug and it's not too difficult. The flexy to the clutch vent is shot so new one ordered. Need to get this done soon as some pillock scraped my wing and pu so off to the body shop in the new year. Morimotos still not here, thx Pforce.

After much deliberation and reading of various articles about replacing just the glass! I bit the bullet and purchased two brand new front fog lights. Quality part which will tidy up the front no end.
I also purchased a cheap digital humidity / temperature gauge to check the levels in my garage.

A warning to nonVram owners, changing the plug leads is a real pia. There is not enough room to get at the cable clamps under the inlet manifold without removing the right bank and resonance chamber. Like a lot of jobs it may be easier to drop the engine and do all the other while you're in there jobs. I can't release the 2 allen bolts behind the heat exchanger in the cam cover either so it will just have to dribble a bit longer. I've scrapped the clutch vent pipe and will be fitting a tiptronic engine tin and airbox blank. The outlet pipe is now covered with wire mesh and will rely on the passive ventilation system, seems to work ok for some in the States.
My rubber elbow to the airbox was a bit chewed up, when I checked out the price of a new one it made my mind up to do without and it will be less hassle when I attack those lower cam covers again.

Do you think so?, never had any problems and I've done all sorts of horror jobs.

Of course having to take the exhausts off to change the plugs, I see where you are coming from.........

I have PPs in mine and absolutely love them. Drop me a line if you need any advice on install as it isn’t entirely straight forward! Thumb

Worth having a look at Hans Hahn RS replica seats or even the new Ninemeister ones. Be sure to use the genuine Recaro sliders the Chinese copies are rubbish.
Old photo, carpets are now black.

Hans Hahn is not the WW2 fighter ace but www.hahn-gfk.de/.
Nice chap to deal with does them in any colour combination to order. They come with side frames and the cheap runners which I changed. Very reasonably priced compared to PPs, don't have the webbing like the pukka RS ones. Dimensionally the same as PPs but he can made them wider if one is posteriorly enlarged.
I have SPGs in the 944 and they are a tight fit would have prefered PPs but I got them cheap. The Hans Hahn are not FIA approved but ok for track days.

I thought the OEM RS and Hahn seats were narrower than PPs ? That’s my experience anyway. Having had them fitted into my car.

Question

The Recaro covers and cushions will fit Hahn,PPs and SPGs, not sat in a PP so you may be right. It's ages since I got mine and I've no idea on his current prices are. The biggest problem with them all is loss of rear seat access but the weight saving is substantial and I do find them comfortable.
The SPGs are high sided and a struggle to get out of in tight parking spaces.

1997 Porsche 993 Targa

Service kit for the Hamilton & Palmer security system. Old ones were starting to get sticky and not open the car. Replacing the battery didn't improve things much so bought the service kit which included another battery.

Cured an annoying squeak from the rear end. ARB bush removed and lubricated with silicon grease. Reset it to full soft and PSS10's to 2.
