      That's some impressive handi-work, especially fixing the distributor.

      i love seeing these old cars brought back to life by passionate owners.

      and i too have always wanted a rotated tach .... i wonder if i can do that on my 944. i do know you can paint the lines on the 944 for the power band ... i should totally do that.

      In for later.

      You know, I didn't know if I was going to like those seats in the car. With the interior all redone, I have to say the way they stand out makes the car. Well done.

      I love 964s, and it's great to see you taking such good care of yours. That car will treat you well for decades to come after everything you've done for it.

      your latest choice of wheels look much better than the twists!

      I assume as these are getting older, theres a DIY for just about everything online?

      also good to see you caring for a classic Porsche

      A lot of things are interchangeable with 993's so theres a vast online community between pelicanparts and rennlist, so mostly everything has some form of DIY on it. And since it really is such a talked about car most things have too much debate and discussion on them.

      Nice! I wish I could do something like that. But. Why RS style door panels and a Momo(?) steering wheel like that but then stock, non-sport seats? I would've picked some Sparco or Recaro racing buckets. Not a big fan of either wheel choise, either. I would've gone with Cup I's.

      PM me your paypal address and I'll promptly send a money request to fund some sportier seats.



      I got the seats for $300 and they came with a set of chrome 7 slots, which I sold for $200.

      Nicely done. I was going to attempt installing a new convertible top for our '55 356, but I've been advised to leave it to an expert.

      What could go wrong?

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.
