    New car day

    Looks great, now you will have to decide which to bring on the next brekkie SMT. White always looks good on a 911.
  2. I have a set, also in Brisbane but rims only. Can send photos if interested

    Some more progress shots. Front suspension rebuilt with the Koni coilover kit from Paragon. Another set of 968 front struts were used and modified as required. Rear torsion bars deleted. New camber plates from Racer's Edge were installed to give some more adjustability. New cross drilled rotors on all 4 corners, brake hoses, pads etc. Bearings were inspected and replaced in the front hubs. At the rear, everything was pulled out and inspected, replaced as necessary.

    Can't believe it's been so long since the last update. Lots has been done since then, and still some more to do. Most of the previous updates related to the engine rebuild. This was done to a high standard - didn't want to have to go back and do anything, just wanted to enjoy it for a long time to come. It wasn't just the engine that was very tired - the suspension and brakes were way past their use by date. Given suspension has come along considerably since this car was built, some upgrades were included. The car came with the M030 option, so had bigger brakes and anti-roll bars as std. With a focus on driveability, and attending to any items they needed it, everything was replaced or rebuilt. Brakes were rebuilt and new rotors, pads and brake lines fitted. Bottom arms were replaced, and everything cleaned up as new. New wheel bearings, anti-roll bar bushes etc. Power steering unit rebuilt, new hoses etc. Everything was pretty filthy, but under the grime was some factory metal ready for renewal.
  5. No experience or affiliation with them, but on another forum I peruse (classic mini) there was a recent post about Brisbane Vapour Blasting and RV Electrical, in Logan. brisbanevapourblasting.com.au The images and feedback were positive.

    Not long after it arrived, if I recall! And probably still is....😜 😬 Will get another update together soon. Life got in the way, then Covid and family....
  7. We got ourselves an isolation puppy a month ago - right at the start of the stay at home regs. With 2 kids now studying uni from home until at least mid-year, and another in Yr10 schooling from home, there's a lot of hands available for the early puppy days and nights. He's been a great addition (have a 10yr old Samoyed too), and certainly helped with the isolation aspect with lots of smiles and plenty of sharp bites to go with it. First time border collie owners too - after a month they are just too smart for their own good! Being a chocolate & white version, kids have called him Milo.....
  8. I have a set of Lobster claws Fronts are 19x8, ET57 Rears are 19x11 ET67 They are in GC, have some small areas of gutter scrapes but other than those areas the rest of the wheels are VGC. All have centre Porsche emblem. After $1,400 + shipping, located in Brisbane. Can send more photos if needed.

    Some more photos of the engine as it was re-assembled. Headers were sent to HPC in Victoria for a factory look finish - the whole assembly looks almost too good to go back in the car.... All new parts installed in the engine, pretty much everything that has a life was replaced with genuine or OEM. Some changes made to fit a modern alternator, given age and development in these units. All aircon components were replaced, and compressor/condenser replaced with a more modern set-up. New radiator and fans. New genuine engine mounts All engine bay wiring was replaced where necessary, particularly in those areas subjected to heat and fatigue. We didn't want this going up in flames when finished. New clutch, pressure plate (green stripe) and DMF. New starter motor. Exhaust was existing, but new CAT was welded in place. Now onto steering/suspension/brakes/wheels and a complete overhaul of this.

    All good - before pull down there was a discussion with Sean & Bruce that these could be an issue, but no broken teeth or wear on cams. Engine was rebuilt with new bearings all round (std, std), rings and all ancillaries replaced with new. Head sent off for reconditioning. All hardware and fittings replated. Various photos of engine in stages of rebuild.

    That's a nice looking car, and who doesn't love BBS wheels. Also love the fact an 18 x 10" wheel fits easily under the rear, and doesn't look out of place. Having just fitted new tyres to mine, what did you fit to these wheels?

    Sean did a great job re-assembling the engine and making it look better than new. Almost too good to go back in the car. Whilst the engine was apart, the only modification/change as such was to replace the rods with Molnar items. The rods in the car were termed a "skinnier Version 2" rod, which are weaker than the 944 turbo rods or aftermarket H beam rods. Molnar were reasonably priced H beam rods, so they were purchased and installed. Left to right is: 944 turbo, Molnar and 968 rod The new rods Pistons all cleaned up ready for new rods. All starting to come together. In terms of the numbers of cars delivered here, I've also seen reference to a total of 60, of them 14 were M030 + 220 optioned. I've also seen reference to 13 cars having the rear seats, but not sure how many of them also had the other 2 options, but at least one other exists. Would be interesting to hear from other owners as to where they sit in build date/order too. This is a late version, but it still sat on the dealers floor for a long time from compliance date to sales date. I guess 1995 was a torrid for euro sports cars. That is the intention, but will be in the new year.
