  1. Hi all, I recently posted over in the introduction section. I joined in 2016 but never posted anything, as I felt I didn’t have too much to share! I bought my 1984 Carrera when I was 22, and it spent the first years in my hands getting driven hard around the Tamworth area. Work and other excuses got in the way and the cars been mothballed for three years. But I’ve just moved to Bathurst and I’m hopefully now in a position to start tumbling down the slippery slope of 911 ownership/repair/modification. I’ll just start with a teaser photo of the car as it sat a few weeks ago prior to the big move. Nice to meet you all and would love to get to know if there is anyone nearby (especially if you can spin a wrench and you’re happy to teach), as I’ll probably need all the help I can get. Cheers.
  2. Hi all long time reader first time poster. I have a Black 98 996 C2 manual that I want to sell to upgrade to a Black 997 manual and I went and had a look at this car today. It is a very clean series 1 original car with authorised history (Porsche Centre Melbourne and Brighton) and partial independent history. Going through the history and receipts it appears to be a 2 owner car slight scrape on the lower front lip and minor wear on the trim new tyres and a recent (independent) service. https://www.graysonline.com/lot/0001-3455227/motor-vehiclesmotor-cycles/2006-porsche-911-carrera-s-997-manual-coupe?redirect=0 What are the thoughts on it’s value ? Thanks in advance Paul
  3. I own a 1977 Porsche 911 Carrera, I'm moving to Canberra in the beginning of 2020. I was wordering if anyone knows of any good shops in the Canberra/Sydney area that do restorations? main things would be a paint job and overhaul the engine.
  4. I have a blown Bose amp that I have not found an easy replacement of. It is a most fibre optic system I am told . Anyway, I was considering replacing the head unit with upgraded sound and technology, to an 8 " alpine unit with new alpine 5ch PDR Amp. Any thoughts on the best system out there. Ideally I want the largest screen out there that will fit in the standard Porsche opening (8") I think. I will keep all the standard kit should I ever sell ( unlikely ) Recommendations / thoughts appreciated. My car is a 2005 Turbo S .
  5. What have I gotten myself into?! I picked up my 1983 911 Cabriolet yesterday. Originally imported from Japan back in 2005 I believe. It was then sold on to the owners who I purchased it from. The lovely gentleman that I purchased it from had it for about 10 years and over that time spent quite a lot of time and money on it. Mostly focused on converting it from LHD to RHD. Unfortunately he became sick and had to move the car on for someone else to be able to finish his hard work. In order to do the RHD Conversion, he got in contact with a VicRoads approved engineer who had experience with Porsche steering conversions. The engineer advised him what was required to meet the required approvals. So, most of the work has been completed. The steering has been swapped across, the dash has mostly been completed, as have the pedals amongst other things. The engineer's certificate still hasn't been ticked off... so, once I get it running, I'll have to do the final few jobs to meet the engineer requirements. The interior has pretty much been stripped out with all the door cards and rear inner panels needing replacing. The carpet has been replaced - I think with a homemade set... it will do for now. I've heard the car running for about 10 seconds... enough to hear that that there wasn't any obvious knocking or scary sounds... here's hoping that when I eventually get it started, it stays that way. Once we got it home yesterday, we gave it a good vacuum and wiped down all of the interior as it was really, really dusty. I felt much better once it was all cleaned out. The car was originally white, but sprayed Red in Japan. I was told that the car had only completed 83,000km's in it's life (as per the speedo reading) but there's no matching documents to prove this is correct., Also I find it strange that someone would respray a car before it had done even 100,000kms. I personally dont think the speedo reading is correct - but who knows. I actually love that this car comes from Japan. I visit Japan as much as I can, so for me, it's an awesome bit of history. I'd love to find out more about it's Japanese owners and where in Japan it lived before coming to Australia. Brand new seats installed by previous owner. I don't love the colour - but they seem like very nice seats. Shame they aren't just plain black. The owner wanted to go for a 90's red theme inside it seems. Including steering wheel and gear shifter cover. This is the nightmare I have in front of me. I know nothing about car electrics. I can do engines and bodywork... but electrics I have no experience with. I'm wondering if it would be easier to start again with a brand new wiring loom. I guess this is what happens when someone does a DIY steering conversion. Some more Japanese delivered Porsche goodness. What do you do when your car is full of electrical gremlins? Add some more electrical components to complicate things! (Previous owner installed this). Don't know if it's hooked up yet. Please let me know if you see anything completely out of place in the engine bay One of the dashboard bits that isn't working. The Handbrake light works ok, but the seatbelt light does not... possibly not hooked up correctly... or maybe a blown bulb. Any easy way to test the bulb with a multimeter? Unfortunately the only place I have found rust so far in the car is inside this filler next to the petrol filler. Is this the wiper fluid filler? It was pretty rusty inside... I sanded it back as best i could, vacuumed out what I sanded to stop it dropping down the tube... put some rust converter on it for about 20 mins and sealed it with some penetrol for the time being... hopefully that slows down the rust. It came with this funky tool kit... not sure if it's the original... the tools do say they are made in West Germany though. I turned the ignition onto ACCESSORY and got a really loud buzzing from the engine bay... I couldn't quite pick where... is that normal?? Anyway... I'm going to have to think about how i'm going to proceed with all the wiring that is EVERYWHERE. No matter what I do, I'm going to have to get very good at reading wiring diagrams - or find a pile of cash to pay an auto elec to sort it out for me.
  6. Gday Everyone, Marc here from Perth. I have recently started a new YouTube Channel. Marc and Cars - Porsche Air Cooled Enthusiast https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWo3kLE5S6cJsnKVJdxDVSg Here are my videos to date. If you like them please share them, subscribe to the channel, give them a thumbs up. You know the drill.

  7. I'm looking for ideas and recommendations for suspension set up. Currently my car is track oriented; after 35 years of spirited club competition (1984 3.2 Carrera that I've owned since new) it is time to ease the old girl into semi-retirement. This is a car that genuinely has seen more track miles than road miles. The engine/gearbox has been rebuilt with full reward for excellent service, engine by Michael Newton now with ITB, dual sparky things, high compression forged pistons, gt3 crank and rods, 3.5L of goodness, motec, lsd. Not too wild a cam, it is tractable, strong and drives in a more friendly fashion than when it was new. There are big brakes, gearbox rebuilt, wevo quick change - everything mechanical is superb. Except that the suspension is rock, rock hard. Unforgiving. Lovely for the track and an absolute pain otherwise. So I want to consult with someone knowledgeable and arrive at a balance that will provide reasonable road manners, acceptable track handling - stiff and responsive but not rock hard. I'm thinking to change the torsion bars for something a bit softer (currently 23mm front and 33 rear) and upgrade all the suspension bushings by replacing the track oriented hard nolathane with spherical bearings for compliant movement. ( I've noticed that as the chassis loads up there are times that the suspension does not play ball.) New shocks. Whatever it needs. After 35 years of sensational fun the budget, while a consideration, is not the first cab off the rank. I'm attracted to some of the options by Elephant racing and also the progressive shocks by KW but have made no decisions yet. I want to ensure that the shocks and the Torsion bars are in tune with one another. I've been holding off on buying new road tires (Currently on A050 17" and/or depending on the track and the weather, Kumho 16") to complete the package and am interested in what is recommended by other 911 enthusiast drivers for road use. I'm in Sydney but would consider taking my 911 to other centres if there's someone truly exceptional and am looking forward to the collective wisdom of this forum. Over to you guys.
  8. Hi, New to all this. I have a 1980 SC that has been converted to RHD in 1996. There are some aspects of the conversion that i would like to tidy up. I really don't know which direction to take first but talking to someone with this experience would be the first step i think. If anybody has any contacts please let me know. I am in Brisbane.
  9. My Brother Dean is chasing a low km 997.2 Carrera or Carrera S with PDK - White, Silver, Grey with dark grey/black interior. He is a genuine motivated buyer; If you are interested in selling your car please contact me. Thanks Scott
  10. I’ve been working for the last couple of weeks on a non-Porsche project with this guy. It didn’t take long to discover a common interest in P cars. He’s living the dream in California designing, building and playing with some big boy’s toys. He’s pretty handy with a camera too.
  11. Would anyone have a fan housing to suit a 911SC engine, as I discovered a crack in mine today. Thanks
  12. "4 grand, 4 grand, 4 grand... 5 minutes down the track give it another couple of 1000 rpm" I like his style, the neighbours might not. https://www.facebook.com/AutohausHamilton/videos/2553169294756235/

  14. A quick strawpoll on everyone's general choice of 4 x BEST colours - and 4 x LEAST LIKED for a standard Aircooled 911 from say, 1978 SC up to 1998 993. Yes I know I've missed plenty of shades of colours blah blah, and some metallics blah blah but I wanted it to be quick and easy. Please choose your best 4 colours IN ORDER (best to 4th best) ------ And choose your least liked 4 colours IN ORDER (worst to 4th worst) . DON'T BOTHER WITH THE MIDDLE FOUR COLOURS AND DON'T NAME THE COLOURS USE NUMBERS ONLY. Read the colours L to R top row as 1, 2, 3 ........ L to R 2nd row as 4, 5, 6 ....... L to R third row as 7, 8, 9 ...... L to R bottom row as 10, 11, 12. For example mine reads as: BEST 2, 7, 12, 8. LEAST LIKED 5, 11, 3, 6 I'll tally it all up in a while and name colour results. LETS HAVE FUN KIDS! (and Mr Pork Chops you can go stand in the corner!)
  15. I understand buying in to the 911 air-cooled market can be challenging these days. My friend took me on a club drive last weekend and unfortunately for my bank balance I got hooked. The missus however has given me the green light to buy one as an investment! Great salesman I can be. My budget is limited to around $70k. If there is anything around that number that isn't going to cost me a fortune after I have bought it. Please let me know. Msg on here please. I did meet a bloke the other day who had a few cars. I think he lived in Byron.

  19. Hey Lads, Now that the restoration and new build of the 930_outlaw has begun I will be putting up some parts that I no longer need / Suit my restoration. First up... My Recaro's , pretty sure these are SR3's ... there are a few models that look similar. Awesome seat, super comfy and hug great. Ive added some pics of them in my car. The shoulder wings just miss each other when mounted. Condition.... not new but super clean. No rips or tears, No real signs of wear or discolouration. Not 100% on if its leather or vinyl... it feels and looks like leather but don't hold me to it. they work as they should. Centres are perforated and embroided. Come with sliding rails. You may need to adjust your factory rail mounts to make these fit. My seat mounts had been adjusted when I got the car. $1250 . Pick up Melbourne. Message me if you need them shipped and I can get them on a small pallet for you. Cheers Ryan.

  20. Anyone know if/where you can get new boots for the spark plug end of the leads? A couple of mine are broken, and they're all a bit hard and brittle. I see that you can get new wire sets from Beru and Bosch, but I like to leave the wire braided ones on. Nothing wrong with them other than the boots.
  21. Now sold. I am going to miss you, baby - you were a great 1st P. car. I am sure your new family will love you too. t 
  22. Doing my Due diligence on my first Porsche, hopefully you guys can steer me in the right direction. The cars going to be a daily driver preferably an older 911. My situation is my office is 1km from home, i need a car as i'm in and out of the office anywhere between 1 & 3 times a day. Averaging around 200km a week. I want a nice cruiser and don't want to buy a Porsche just for it to sit in the garage. What i'm looking for is a 911 between 1985 & 1994, must be a couple & manual. Am i mad for even considering this?
  23. Hi all, I'm looking for some views on the A$ value of this car - I own half of it and am looking to establish a fair market value to sell my half to the other owner. Any views would be greatly appreciated. It's silver, is automatic but has the gear paddles on the steering wheel and is in great condition. Many thanks in advance. P.
  24. Hi everyone, I'm considering investing in a 911 Turbo - most likely 997.1 generation but I have one concern. Whilst I enjoy driving manual recreationally I find them tedious in traffic day to day (car would be driven day to day plus for fun on weekends!).. Just wondering what tbe forum readers think the mpact on future resale values will look like for Tiptronic vs PDK vs Manual. My gut feel is the Manual and PDK will do much better long term. Thoughts? Cheers Dave
