I'm liking where your 911 project is going. When do you plan to make it all one colour. The fibreglass bumpers look nice/ More streamline than the original 3.2 Carrera ones. Good work!

Thanks, I've been playing around with the fit of the rear bumper and I'm just about happy with it now. I just need to heat cycle/stress relieve it then I can get it painted. Lots of work to do at the front end still! Car looks quite a bit different from that video at Brands hatch - front is now lowered and mirrors are changed to Vitalonis. I'll post a pic or a vid soon. Cheers

Se looks like a real project in the making. Be nice to see it again when the bumoppoers are colour coded.

Hi Dave, it's a home made grill - Very simple to do out of lightweight aluminium mesh (or steel if you prefer). Cut a template in cardboard then cut the mesh slightly smaller. The edging strip I used has an adhesive in it so you simply form it round the outside, run a heatgun round it

Great looking 3.2. The oil mod is great!

Cheers, I wanted to do something a bit different although I'm sure some people will cringe at it but originality isn't what the car is all about!

Thanks, when driving hard especially in hot weather with the 3.2 cooler it used to sit around the second line on the gauge whereas now it sits on the first line. All very unofficially tested I'm afraid. I think one of the biggest problems with the standard cooler is its location tucked away out of the airflow with a behind the headlight bowl and difficult for the air to escape through the stone guard. I did some even more unofficial aero testing before adding the lip at the front of the vent and the lip made quite a big difference!

The car is currently on 6s and 9s, don't know why - it was like that when I bought it years ago. I have got a pair of 7s to go on the front but they're a different colour to the rears

Very nice 3.2, or should I say 3.6, you have there. Liking the way its heading with the light weight bumpers and oil cooler mod. I agree it would look better a little lower, and maybe some wider Fuchs. Great Porsche all round.

Cheers Mark, lowering the car is a job I've been dreading as it will screw all the geo up.... more! If I get time I may have a go at it over the next couple of weeks.

Your right there Alex. Once you start modifying it's never ending. I could see 7s and 9s small spacers and rolled arches and dropped for a snug fit. You could always Polish the Fuchs. Just to be different.

I'd definitely like to roll the arches and add spacers - I'd also like to add a little bit of extra width, not turbo width but somewhere between narrow body

Thanks for the comments. It is very much still work in progress (aren't they all!) and is crying out to be lowered and painted. The bonnet oil cooler vent is an adaptation of the GT3 and is also on some 962's amongst others. The reason I did it is because the car is running a modified 3.6 engine that was getting a bit warm in the summer with the standard 3.2 oil cooler so it is running a much bigger custom one in the nose. This is also why it has the current front valance to allow it to fit!
