What did you do to your Porsche today ???

Recommended Posts

Friday actually, service and checkover as preparation for Luftwasser.  Carried out as usual by David Ringsgwandl, our go to Porsche man in Tassie.  As you'll see from the photo he's got a bit on at the moment - Tuthill rally Porsche rebuild, Cayman Targa prep, and a 992 Targa build - owner drove the car on the road for testing this weekend.  Expert rollcage build by Jason White (Of Targa Tas and other fame) - super neat job, the welds look fantastic, in fact you'd swear the car was built with the cage, although it is basically a Carrera S that will have some bigger brakes and louder exhaust as part of the final spec.

Nice work Steve, been thinking I probably need to do that as well. Was pulling them apart straightforward or a few tricks involved? That grease certainly gets everywhere doesn’t it.

Not tricky at all,only 4 parts per nut, just time consuming and messy,I do it every time I get Tyres  or take the wheels off for some other reason, it really needs doing as the paste dries out and goes awol

What do you do when you’re not doing anything?? Clean the inside of your wheels of course!
Lotsa brake dust and dirt inside so took ‘em off and - well, see the result. Product says to apply, leave then pressure wash off. I ended up giving them a brush as well.
The finer detail cleaning was done with a rag as I didn't have a smaller brush handy.

You'll enjoy the Bridgestones and nice look with the darker wheel colour. Almost looks angrier

Agree, I put some on the OEM 19's  and was really impressed, seem to be on song straight away unlike the Cup 2's that need a bit of a warm up.

Any reason for going to the Bridgestones rather than staying with the Dunlop ZIII's???

And at least you haven't gone to black 🙂

I suspect this question is for @Shedpest

FWIW The tread pattern is almost identical - well to my untrained eye :)

 @TwoHeadsTas I have a friend that works for BS and had been sending me all the press release jargon on the RE71 RS's  so that and discount incentive it was a no-brainer to give them a go.

Yet to punt them on the track but first impressions on some spirited hills fangs are very confident inspiring. 

Note that the  71RS's  are unavailable in a 305-19'  so a pair of the "old" 71R's were sourced for the rears on the stocky rims, the Oz rims are 18' and running 71 RS' on all corners.

Ah OK, I was thinking the tyre on the rim lying on the floor looked like a ZIII, but the tread pattern of the 71RS does look similar.  Obviously RE71RS is Bridgestone's equivalent to the ZIII.  At least the RE71RS looks to be available in more Porsche friendly sizes, so you could fit out an older GT3 with proper sizes no problems.

Good having friends in the right position to help out with tyres, I was in a similar position with the ZIIIs as a friend / former client is our local Dunlop motorsport dealer 🙂

I'll interrupt on this, as it looks to be the Meguiars All Wheel Cleaner which does that fancy colour change.  I found I went through that really quickly, think I got 2 sets of wheels out a spray bottle, and I don't think you can buy in 5L containers either.  I've switched to Autoglym Specialist Wheel Cleaner which you can buy in 5L containers, and last really well (last time I got Supercheap to order me one in, and I use a refillable spray bottle) .  I find it works really well with a bit of agitation with a brush, but I normally don't use a pressure cleaner, instead using a normal hose for most car washing.  However, must be just about due for another wheels off thorough clean, so will use a pressure cleaner then.  

Sorry, highjack over...

Good guess, but no cigar @TwoHeadsTas. 😅

I used “Wheely Clean” by Bowden’s Own. I bought a small bottle (500ml) just to try it. Gotta say it worked really well.

Completed a small but practical mod that I've been meaning to do for a while after finding the how to on the net.

In short, I've placed a rear spoiler switch on the dash and piggy backed the wiring from the stupid switch in the footwell. They both work as intended and is easily reversible. I've used a rear spoiler switch from a 996TT so it looks factory and lights up like the rest of the switches. Now I don't need to fumble around my feet to put the spoiler up. Put it in the bottom spare so it's away from the PSM and don't accidentally hit that.

Ordered the switch from PCW and it arrived from Germany in about 3 weeks. Needed some wire and bits ... All up about $80. Well spent me thinks! ..

Hey @Dreamr , did you use the instructions from 6speedonline as a guide?

I understand there are two switch part numbers, gloss finish series 1 (99661315610A02 - left side switch) and matt finish series 2 (99661315610A05 - right side switch).  Is your switch matt finish and do you recall if your code ended in A05?
