  1. So I haven't had the roof down on my 996 for ages due to a massive leak in the left cylinder seals. Finally had some time in lockdown to get the roof cylinders out, replaced the seals and reinstalled. Apparently the same/very similar process in a 997. About 90 minutes to get the cylinders out, and an hour to replace. Couldn't really find a detailed writeup anywhere so hope this helps someone. Full writeup with pics and details at http://www.dtmtune.com/2020/08/porsche-911-996-and-997-convertible.html
  2. After years of use and having been baked by UV rays, the original plastic sun visor clips fitted to many classic Porsches can crack, allowing the visors to flap around freely. As a more permanent solution than a simple exchange part, we have stocked up on these replacements which are engineered with aluminium bodies, replacing the plastic. Still featuring the polished steel pin that slides into to the sun visor, the body of the clip takes the OE form, but finished in black powder coat rather than plain plastic. Stronger, unaffected by UV and more durable in extremes of temperature, it is the perfect upgrade for this small but essential component. Priced each at AUS $43.95 for Cabriolet and Targa models and AUS $84.15 each for the more complicated curved pin type as found in the coupe, they all come covered with a lifetime warranty by the manufacturer. They can be bought from the following links; Coupe Sun Visor Bracket Targa/Cabrio Sun Visor Mounting
  3. Hi All, I'm looking for a set of Standard/OEM springs to suit a 996 Turbo Cabriolet. I'm located in Adelaide, so if anyone could help me out or knows where I could come across a set please let me know. I would post in the WTB Marketplace forum but I assume since I'm new I can't? Thanks in advance.
  4. 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.

  7. Seems like the Sydney property market and air-cooled market isn't too dissimilar; it's hard to put a roof over your head. http://www.carpoint.com.au/all-cars/dealer/details.aspx?R=OAG-AD-2196899&Cr=0 Aussie delivered C2 manual 964 = $60k ~ even at CTS crack pipe prices... Is a roof over your head really worth the extra $40k? That buys a lot of colour bond PLUS - Cab is cool enough for Hank Moody ( aka David Duchovny )
  8. Hello Porsche enthusiasts, Whilst I am a certifiable car-nut, I unfortunately don't yet own a Porsche... HOWEVER.... I am listing for sale a 996 hard-top on behalf of my mother. She has never used it on the car (Live's in QLD) and as it just sits on its cart taking up room in the garage, she wants to pass it on the somebody who can make use of it. (Exterior colour is cobalt blue with black & camel interior). It's listed at: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Porsche-996-Cabriolet-top-Storage-Caddie-/180756653052?pt=AU_Cars&hash=item2a15efa3fc Please let me know if you have any questions. Cheers, -Scott
