  1. Hey mate, I went with the straight restoration pack. I was mainly looking to refresh suspension and keeping it feeling as new from the factory as opposed to making it a bit sportier. It was the first thing I did with the car and don't regret it for a moment! Night and day difference and really made it feel tight and fresh to drive.
  2. Thanks mate, took a quiet afternoon and a bit of patience, hopefully not too OCD of me!
  3. Haha, the old one out, one in! Wish I had more garage space. Thanks @wilson59 , bet she would look great in a red targa!
  4. Hey all, have had quite a few test pilots, have dropped the price to $85k. Thankfully lots of interest, just no one ready to pull the trigger!
  5. Thanks mate, really appreciate you taking the time. Logs seem solid but only concern is it went to the UK for a while before returning home to AU. Unsure how this will affect resale price. But it for me it ticks the boxes. G50 3.2 Coupe. Ill DM you @LeeM ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  6. Do we have any members in Adelaide willing to scope out a car for me? Seems they have it on consignment but dont really seem to want to go out of their way to sell it. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/_/SSE-AD-5993479 It would be great to know: Overall condition How it drives Books and Service Manuals all in order Pending that could be time to book a flight and head on over!
  7. Pegoretti and Porsche, excellent combo.
  8. Anyone tracking this in tippers on widebodys? This seems particularly tasty. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1996/SSE-AD-5814103/?Cr=14
  9. Who is the forum member? My carsales enquiry fell on deaf ears. I have two inspections on my 911SC this weekend so hopefully should move quikcly...I'd hate to have an empty spot in the garage!
  10. Just having a quick search on this one...Still for sale! Engine from an '88 turbo and a UK delivered car, however price reflects this. Seems to have been sitting for aaaaages.
  11. I used BM Leather in Richmond who was able to bring my seats back to looking like new, he had to do some re-trimming on the bolsters but otherwise was able to keep most of it stock which reduced cost but more importantly kept originality in tact. It's amazing what they can do with nice old leather to bring it back from the dead.
  12. Thanks mate, I feel like i've done a good job in keeping it in great condition along with a few improvements along the way which I am sure will help with a smooth sale. It went up on carsales a couple of days ago (i'd rather sell it here, but hey it's a small pool of people) and i have had a few enquiries already. I'm pretty confident it'll go for the asking price. Maybe coming into winter isn't the best time of year to be selling Targas!
  13. Forgot to add a couple of thing: Has turbo tie rods which were done as part of the elephant racing suspension restoration Carrera pulley chain tensioners Factory tool set Car cover
  14. Great day out, good to meet a few PFAers. Was a big fan of that John Player Special BMW. Hereโ€™s a few snaps from the day.
