      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.

      Looks good! I'd get a set of aero mirrors and Recaro Pole Position seats. Now that your interior is all black you can ditch the cashmere comfort seats.

      Often times they are just experts because you don't see them kicking, fighting and swearing. I have seen your trailer build and have done a beetle and ghia top with my dad. Fun? No, but you could handle it.

      wow man really enjoyed this.

      for some reason I appreciate somebody that has a nice car but doesn't really have a huge lavish house and space to garage it... makes me feel better that I don't have a house or permanent garage for my M3 to sleep in

      plus I like seeing all the work you do without a real work space and how nice your 911 is coming out, I really like the RS carpeting and the door panels. Those Turbo twists look right at home... the CCW's look alright too

      Beautiful work. A lot of dedication. In the next 2 years I want to buy myself a 964. Like you it is a dream car of mine. They are just perfection in every single way.

      Can't wait to see what else you did with it. Pelican is a great site too!

      Wow, a lot of work went into this car. It sure is pretty, but I can't help but think that the EVO you sold was faster, handled better and was more reliable in every way...

      At first I was afraid this was going to be a trainwreck. It's hard to modify the finest Weissach und Stuttgart built.

      Then I saw the black with tan seats, and the clunky airbag wheel delete and I approved

      Sorry, I just realized the cost issue after clicking "submit reply". See, in my daydreams, I own a 964 and have no financial constraints fixing and modding it.
