      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.

      Wouldn't have turned the speedo but the tach in my 911 was turned 45 degrees counter clockwise

      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.

      Tuddy, I hate 964's. I never liked the more aggresive bulging headlight tunnels, upright lights and just the...not 993-ness of it. I always thought everything that wasn't a 993 or 997 was hideous. I love your car, thank you for changing my mind.

      You're speaking as if the 964 came after 993 and 997. Or was it so that you never liked 911s until the 993 came along? Anyway, in my book, the 964 is the perfect 911. It cleaned the iconic shape from accordion bumpers and other crap and was just perfect in all. OK, sure, the classic ones separately, but from late '70s to early '90s the 964 was the best 911.
