2016 Porsche Boxster 981

PostPosted: Sun Oct 21, 2018 3:34 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

new rear suspension arms (outrageous price, btw. Porsche tax at its keenest), new rear top mounts (after 23 years, mine had a few cracks) and a new a/c evaporator(+10 hours to have it fitted, obvs) and a resistor thing for one of the fans at the front.

Not had a chance to try it out properly yet - hopefully this coming weekend Smile

New slightly smaller front numberplate as per below. Saving up for a full suspension refresh at some point early in the New Year - should hopefully be sorted wel before Spring.

Porsche Classic oil service, inspection and mot at Portsmouth OPC. Plus the loan of a 718 Pdk Cayman which was great. Super quick and loads of tech but it is no 993!

The various supports and mounting plates for the rear bumper, also inspired by a thread on here the relevant undercoat and rustproofing to prep them with.

I'm quite tempted to take the job of fitting the parts on myself but as a (very) amateur mechanic I'm a bit nervous... thoughts?

I'm reasonably handy and have the the requisite level of OCD but this would be a leap into the unknown. Bandit

Think you’re probably more handy than me, Nick. I topped up my engine oil on Sunday for the first time in the 993 - something I’d ordinarily have got done by a mechanic. Baby steps for me... Floor

If you go ahead with replacement of the bumper support struts and investigate chassis leg corrosion be very aware that the fasteners with be corroded badly and it's so easy to fracture studs. PB blaster works well but localised intense heat i.e. cherry red is the best way to crack off seized nuts.
Best way is an induction coil (no flame ) but they are very expensive )circa £750)
I pinch Jamie Oliver torch from the kitchen, getting into trouble again when the Creme Brules are out.

if your looking for support I am up in Aberdeen and happy to share advice and assistance, I have done more than. my fair share of chassis legs and restoration on these cases, its not a hard job, just involved and everything will be seized and a bit crusty, as ever it will cost more than you expect in brackets screws and fixings.
well worth doing though, they all need it doing just differing levels of corrective works and that always the unknown till you strip them fully.

It's a nice winter project.

Excellent, I own at least two of these that get used once a year max.

I'm enjoying the relative simplicity of the car. Oil top up is good first step!

Nick, do you have a list of parts/numbers for a narrow body car?

A bit self indulgent but I couldn't resist:-https://rennlist.com/forums/993-forum/1111913-hunziker-driving-shoes-normally-145-59-now-only-99-00-while-supplies-last.html
I've found the 993 pedals a bit close for my big plates of meat and if I'm on a long drive I wear Sparco racing boots.
These will be a bit less noticable ( I didn't get the Martini ones.)

New set of brake flexy lines from HEL can't recommend them highly enough.
Stainless fittings in all sorts of colours. The female ends swivel, making fitting them a doddle. Made in UK too.
