  1. Selling a pair of comfort 911 seats from 1974-1976. Originally and still backed with black leatherette (vinyl), the front has been recovered with fabric. The fabric and leatherette are both in very good condition with no rips or holes. Mechanisms work very well. Cushion is a little soft on driver right side but overall decent, you can easily swap the cushion bases with the passenger seat. Includes seat rails but no allen bolts. Pickup from Sydney. Asking $500.
  2. I had a similar issue and opted for a Covercraft Noah cover that's tailor made for your make. It's got great options (whale/duck tail, different mirrors etc) that are easy to config through their website and was pretty reasonably priced I thought (<$500 and they have specials): https://www.covercraft.com/au/en/covercrafter I went with Noah fabric because its strong against weather but inside it's a soft cotton like fabric.
  3. Edited the thread as I have finally tracked down the engine number with the help of a very kind PCNSW member! If you know where it is, please do let me know.
  4. Finally replaced the shifter coupling bushings with some brass ones from Pelican:
  5. I think the only people who find buying parts from the US worth it are those who travel there regularly anyway. Or perhaps for some rare 2nd hand parts.
  6. Looks like a classic bushing issue on the shift coupling. Thanks to Autohaus Hamilton for the tip.
  7. Thanks Jeff! Your YouTube channel is a real inspiration for me, your breadth of skills is amazing. I've worked at YouTube (Google Sydney) for the last ~9 years so have followed you with interest.
  8. Cross post from my blog The Porsche 911 Sportomatic Brake Pad (Part#: 905-423-511-00) is a NLA item. Not even Pelican Parts can help me, and on forums second hand ones are selling for anywhere from US$90-175. That’s a lot of money for what should be a <$20 piece of rubber. So I had a try at 3D printing one myself in Form2 flexible resin: Side by side comparison of old, heavily worn pad and new printed pad. Note that this was my first go at the model and so I didn't bother rounding corners or printing at high resolution: Then finally the fitted product! Only needed minor trimming with a stanley knife: In total I calculate it cost around $12 of resin (~50mL). Not a bad alternative! Now I just need to see how it wears over time. Keen to try printing other NLA Porsche parts in the future. There are some on Thingiverse, but not as many as I would have expected. Keen to hear any feedback or thoughts!
  9. Hi Sportomatic experts! I have a 4 speed 1975 sporto transmission that I daily drive in traffic and love. Recently however it's been doing 2 annoying things semi-regularly and I am wondering what the root cause of either/both is: When shifting down from D2 to D1, it will go into the D1 position smoothly but actually stays in D2. Subsequently pushing back into D2 feels clunky. R is tricky to get into, need to almost put it forward into P to shift over. Otherwise D2, D3 etc. all shift very nicely. Thanks! Scott
  10. Getting a "network issue" on sign-in over the last ~week. Works OK on the website, just seems to be a Tapatalk specific issue.
  11. The Luft shop just got the profile logo tee back in stock (it was gone by the time I got to the queue on the day): https://shop.luftgekuhlt.com/collections/apparel/products/luft-profile-logo-tee Is anyone else interested in buying anything from the Luft shop and sharing shipping costs? Or flying back from the US anytime soon? ?
  12. Belle of the ball? Hmmm... The one I was most excited to see was this 72 RSR because it had inspired me from this 2013 YouTube video. I think the 962CR was the most amazing car, never even knew it existed. Favourite car was this one, but of course this is a very personal and subjective choice:
