  1. I think a 3.6 in decent cond is probably worth 20k - 25k. I think you'd get a real kick out of thrashing that on the track.

    Space saver spare

    If there are any available after the OP finds one, I need one too.. 77 C 3.0 - is it mean to be a collapsible style or full style? I'm thinking to just put a can of goop and compressor in the front...

    964 RS Engine Mounts

    The WEVO kit comes with either a BLACK or a BLUE insert. I forget which is which but one is a lot harder than the other. I have a set in my 964 and there is the slightest amount of extra nvh transmitted.. I like the extra noise and feel! I didn't buy the car to be "comfortable". Also, the WEVO kit comes with everything you need. Fit them yourself.. you need some basic sockets and a trolley jack to put under the engine case. ie, support engine weight with jack, undo 1 side and remove the mount.. put in the new mount. Then remove and replace the other side. Really simple. If you are still not sure, I am sure anyone near you will assist; I'd be happy to if you were here in Brisbane. https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_Info/WVO-SSEM-C2-BLK&SuperCat=Y&SVSVSI=834.htm

    964 Market Watch

    I think I know that second grey car.. I looked at one on the gold coast when the asking price was 50k... He'd had it resprayed and there was rust coming through again around the rear quarter.. Here are some pics of when I saw it.. I think it was the same car that you are referring to above.

    911SC reflector inside tail light

    I asked the same thing a while ago.. Jack Olsen suggested the plastic diffuser from an office light.. We had a broken one at work so I cut one out..

    Replacing Sunroof seals on a 1986 911

    So when getting a car painted, and the seals need to be replace, which are the seals and part numbers required? I'm not meaning to sound lazy, but when I look a the parts diagram, there are a tonne of parts, and I'm not too sure what is needed? Car is a 1977 911. The parts I have ordered are 911 564 409 00 911 564 191 00 911 564 193 00 911 564 465 00 Any guidance always appreciated
