  1. Pascha...brilliant. I really love it, but don't want it (if that makes sense). Makes my vision go fuzzy. Thanks Dalai, thats what I wanted to see! Also interesting the headrest is trimmed in the same leather as the bolsters - i like it. Most of the earlier 80-84 seats have the fabric script inserts go right up to the headrest too. Like the way yours are done better.
  2. Are Porsche script seats "wrong" in a G Series 911? I associate them more with 924/944, and cannot actually recall ever seeing a photo of them in a G series. Am re-trimming a set of sporties soon, and tossing up some ideas including new script fabric. Any photos??
  3. I've been with Famous for a couple of years with a limited KM policy for a SC. Premium renewal arrived recently and was +50% on prior 2 years which is just a function of the underwriters (RACQ) pricing change - consistent theme with others in this thread. It's a pretty cheap policy to be honest, so not the end of the world. MB quote was about the same as the uplifted Famous pricing, but MB won't insure for theft until I install a self-arming immobiliser that disables at least 3 independent points (which I should probably do anyway). I lost interest at that point and renewed with Famous. Will have a closer look next year.
  4. A work colleague just had his Famous renewal arrive for a 991. Premium was a 30% uplift from last year. Ouch.
  5. Thanks PFA, now found.
  6. Hi, Sports seats for SC wanted. Feel like this is a long shot, but never know what people have tucked away. Need to be structurally sound and functional. Not fussed about condition of upholstery. I'm in Melb but will freight in if I need to. Thanks.
  7. Great stuff Jeff. Love the 996, as do many others. Here's an old fave of mine for some post-purchase affirmation (PPA?) and maybe a little inspo (not that you need it)
  8. Only took 6 months, but finally got around to it. Really brightens the place up a bit - great stuff @Kerry 😁. Now just need to find a way to secure that trike a bit better otherwise...
  9. Enough with the caps already 😉 Back to the main game - the whale tail on a 964 looks sensational. In fact, the whole car is spot on - colour, stance, wheels and wing all come together beautifully. Very cohesive.
  10. I had a couple of seats re-trimmed by Mick Langford in Bulleen. Did a good job, and sounds like location could be handy. http://www.langfordtrimmers.com.au
  11. They certainly are the marque of choice which I've noticed too. I've been reading this mag for 30 years. Until about 2 years ago, the Wheels cover shot was invariably the latest offering from Holden or Ford - in particular the performance products (HSV, etc). They were aspirational and affordable, and the public bought them by the shed load. Since about the time local manufacturing ceased, I reckon ever 2nd cover shot is a Porsche. Seems it doesn't matter no-one (generally speaking) can afford them. The brand has massive pull.
  12. Just unwrapped my latest Wheels (am I their last subscriber?) and surprised to see a 4 page spread on HB2. "Hats off, then, to the dedicated few who've created an inclusive event." Here, here.
  13. Funny you ask. I 'had' permission to hang in the house. Then we pulled them out of the tube. Clearance revoked and back to the shed! I'm happy with that - shed could use a little cheering up!
  14. For those looking for non-professional framing options, I got these poster frames from Officeworks online (not an in-store stock item). $20, plastic not glass, delivered in 1 day. Search for A2 poster frame.
  15. I've noticed Duttons use this same generic VIN in many of their car ads.
