    911 wiring harness

    I've been looking for about 6 months... only places that I've found that make them are Timmy2 from pelican parts and Kroon. Did you find any other leads? Unless you can find a NOS one laying around in a shop somewhere - as far as I can tell - they're our only options. Kroon work out to be a little cheaper on shipping and EURO exchange rate, VS Timmy2 charging in USD.
  3. Once I start mine up after my own rebuild and the pistons hit the valves, I'll send it to you to redo and do it properly.
  4. Great suggestion - but definitely sounds like something I'm not going to do. Looks like I'm just going to repair my one.
  5. Fine then! I'll just rebuild my own harness, shall I? Just remember - I'll blame you when my car burns to the ground.
  6. ..or year close to 1983. Mine was a LHD which has been hacked to be a RHD. Would like to replace with a original RHD one. I know I can buy new ones, but they are about $2000.
  7. Awesome! Could you possibly send me details/pic and how much you would like for it?
  8. Hey mate, not yet... haven't really been looking recently.
  9. I paid less than 25k for mine.... I have spent about 20k on it so far in rebuilding the engine, transmission, redoing the electrics, fuel tank, replacing soft top roof, tyres, rubber hoses, seals, fuel lines, you name it and that's doing all the work myself - except for machine work and some transmission work. So - for $50k I should have a nicely, mostly rebuilt car. Had I paid $50k up front for a car that was 'nicer' - I probably would have had to have done all that at some point in the future anyway, so then you're looking at 50k + all of the rebuild costs and labour if you can't do it yourself. I dont know what condition the car is that you are looking at - but there are a few around at the moment for $50k, they might be cabs, or targas or LHD, but if you spent the additional 50k on it you should surely have one of the cleanest, fastest porsches known to man! :D
  10. Funnily enough - cremorne and neutral bay isn't too bad on the pricing of apartments - especially when you compare it to anywhere around Surry Hills, Darlinghurst or even Enmore! House prices though - that's another story! :D There's also a few awesome ramen places along military road now. Pretty cool they have a Bourke St bakery over there now too!
  11. Wow, super nice area! Would LOVE to live around there. The cremorne point walk an the McCallum pool is SPECTACULAR!! Papaya thai used to be one of my fave restaurants when it first opened - not sure what it's like these days? Went to Radio Cairo recently though (the African place) and it was 100% the worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant. LOVE catching the ferry from Cremorne/Mosman into the city.... damn I really need to work on that tattslotto win! :(
  12. I often stay at Park Regis serviced apartments in Cremorne. Just a 10 min bus ride across the bridge into the city. Also the parking in the local streets around there isn't overly restricted so you can park for free if you like. Rooms on the harbour side are best and usually have a super nice view of the harbour, heads and bridge. Great thai restaurant downstairs too. :)
  13. Hey team, Just wondering if you guys had any our sources for wiring Harnesses other than Kroon or the Pelican Parts guy Timmy2? Maybe someone local? I didn't expect them to be cheap, but after GST, Import tax, shipping and currency conversion, they work out to be a bit over $2000. Was curious to know if there were any other options out there that people have used. At the moment, I have a reasonably dodgy LHD harness which has been spliced to suit a converted RHD. Cheers,
  14. I'm going to be no real help here, but I'll comment anyway. :) I purchased one a few months ago to replace my 1983 911 soft top. I ordered it from ebay from these guys: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Porsche-911-Convertible-top-Plastic-window-Black-German-1983-1994/310323281710 I got it during one of ebay's 10% off sales, which meant that I got it pretty cheap. I haven't actually opened the box as yet, as I'm still getting the engine and transmission sorted. I did a lot of research and found that most of them came from 2 or 3 different manufacturers, even the ones you buy here in Australia. Everybody else seems to just be a re-seller. The ebay guys got lots of good reviews and I determined that their top was from one of the big manufacturers (can't remember which one sorry). The challenge is not finding someone reputable and reasonably priced to install it. So far estimates have been around the $1000 mark. Good luck!
  15. If you mean the shift rod that goes inside the 915 transmission, there's a NOS one on ebay from a local guy - $155 OBO. I bought an exhaust from him and he personally delivered it to me. Recommend.
  16. wonder if it happens as much now with dash cams that can pick up motion / impact.
  17. Bahahaha! Let me know if you need a model for a photo shoot. I'm happy to help out if you need... I look smashing in a white suit. My only disclaimer is that with me in the photos - you'll probably get a lot less for the car - rather than more.
  18. I assume you have already looked here?
  19. Bumpski.... still hunting... getting closer to needing one as I put my transmission back together. Apparently I can also use a reverse to first sleeve from a 914 in the off chance anybody has one of those laying around.
  20. Lol, nah not trucks. Just a skateboard wheel. Although they work better on threaded gear shifts as they just take 2 nuts to install... Aren't the 911SC shifters tapered? I forgot to check when i was at the car last weekend.
  21. Almost every BMW 125i that I have seen has been blowing smoke. I notice because my girlfriend always tells me she would like one. Then I point out the smoke. :) I reckon your money would be better spent on a super nice 944/944S or a 928. Both of those will get your groceries for you, be fun to drive and will actually appreciate in value.
  22. Went to one yesterday, but they only had sets. Wanted a new one, not a used one. :) Doubt I'd even have to run.... they'd be too stoned to chase me anyway.
  23. Getting back to my roots . Now just need to see if I can buy one instead of a set of 4.
