  1. That’s an astonishing sale price, what a deal for someone 👍
  2. Must be working on the frunk light
  3. That's the way to go Jason, I have two of the exact same model and they are perfect. The kit will come with a plug that allows you to bolt the quick connector to the battery terminals via some eyelets (or you could just use the alligator clips but the eyelets are neater). If you can measure your battery bolts and get the eyelets to suit, it will save you mucking around with them to fit. In both chargers I purchased, the eyelet was slightly smaller than the battery bolts, meaning a had to drill the eyelets out. Given how thin the eyelets are, you need to take great care when holding them for drilling, don't push hard, use a timber backing board & drill press, a worn drill bit may be more forgiving with less bite. One out of my 4 grabbed and chewed the eyelet out, meaning I had to cut the wire and re-crimp a new eyelet . If you have more patience than me, filing may be a safer method, or if you can source, get the correct size eyelets from the start.
  4. I'm glad it worked out for you, that was great buying, even with the upgrades
  5. I went through the same thought process around 5 years ago when I go the alternator in my 3.2 reconditioned ( a good time to consider). Personally, I think the ceramic coating is by far the best look but at that point in time, I couldn't find anyone local to do it. My fan and shroud didn't really have much pitting, it was just the build up of corrosion that annoyed me given how patchy it looks. I got the fan and shroud powder coated and it has held up extremely well over the years. I've attached a pic, I suppose the only thing is it looks a little too glossy in the sun. I recall seeing an engine rebuild pic posted by @jnr356 some time ago, could find it, but the treatment on that fan and shroud looked pretty original. https://i.imgur.com/Ql9fAcd.jpg https://imgur.com/Ql9fAcd (looks like my attachments aren't working
  6. Not a car...….but if you have a blue G series interior and need seats I'd be all over these, no affiliation. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Porsche-911-930-Leather-Tombstone-Power-Manual-Front-Seats/233193654974?hash=item364b6ccabe%3Ag%3Aga8AAOSwwWNco9CK&LH_Auction=1
  7. What a great colour! Agreed, overpriced and would expect it to drop. Why would you advertise it on Gumtree
  8. Almost too good to be true Has anyone made contact with the seller? Apparently the seller is in Dandenong. I'm pretty sure those photos show the Shannons car park in the background? Reference to 993 in the ad, super cheap price, Vic Roads website says registered til 1st of June 2019 but ad says Nov 2019.........I smell a rat.
  9. No Jason, surely she’s part of the family after so much hard work.
  10. 1990 944S2 coupe was 71 vehicles. Thanks for sharing your info Bruce
  11. As long as they find everything which isn't always the case. I was from Interstate and buying a non AC car which appeared to make all the difference
  12. You need to be open minded Lee, they are all beautiful P cars: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-2000/SSE-AD-2929997/?Cr=5 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-2006/SSE-AD-5654329/?Cr=8 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-356-1953/OAG-AD-16825306/?Cr=0 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-928-1987/SSE-AD-5939879/?Cr=10 Closest I could find to Black (the perfect colour) https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1997/SSE-AD-5805584/?Cr=7 http://porscheclassics.com.au/shop/1973-porsche-911-srsr/ No Black or even close in Oz Minority...……………….. I've seen your cup car in the flesh, V8 924 sounds interesting
  13. I think most people that sold their old AC car and no longer have one would have regrets, especially if it was held for a while and part of the family. Mine will be going to the grave, and then on to the kids and I expect their might be a fight for it . I'd also like a 996 or 997 but it won't be to replace the AC, I just need a bigger shed and some spare cash. I'd also like a 356, 928, 993 and a long bonnet...……..sorry, started to drift off into Porsche dreamland
  14. Looks like it would have been a good buy for someone
