gents all in good time...

project tuityfruity aka TANGent aka oh dear... is about to take a U turn and I'm in needing of some quality build input here gents... post your musings, your doodles, your late nights stirrings... I'm equal opportunity, no gender bias here,  so come one... roll up, roll up

here is no place for Sunday morning Q's.., here ask yourself not what Putin would do,  but tell me in no uncertain terms, what you would do if so badly  provoked. We are all driven by our baser programmed  instincts - thirst, hunger, pain, sex   and compelling forces are at work within us. There are two constituents of a primordial emotion--the specific sensation which when severe may be imperious, and the compelling intention for gratification... :) If you need it.  further reading on the primordial brain  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/18701321/ 

So where does that leave us. Could it be 

 a G series backdate  hottie -  think Kylie Minogues hot pants https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qaGS3Uts704 or something more subdued? Nuanced ? Subtle ? 

I'm thinking though about another colour change .... maybe back to silver ... SO let's storyboard this baby post em ramblings post em pics - I won't kiss n tell I. won't mock (well a little) 

It's a lovely Sunday morning

I wish you hadn't have asked this. What I would do...

Keep it G series in appearance, remove the rear over riders and the bottom half off the rear spoiler which would leave room to fit centre exit poo shooters.

Carrera front end

16x9 Fuchs black centres with polished hoops, 235 rubber in the rear.

No spoiler and keep the oil lines exposed

Wrong bumpers on the below green example, OEM corners and 'delete' the duck tail (or perhaps keep) but a lot like this:


Colour should be something fantastic from the 70's. I'd be happy with the tangerine you but would also consider signal green or the light yellow. 

Keep the interior stripped, minimal carpet except for the foot wells, cushion pads installed in the rear, RS door cards, etc.

colour options?

stay orange?

colour change to some other colour e.g. leaf green, or return to its original silver metallic - choices. either way i will be adding back body/sound deadener to the car.

got a few current seat options though not settled on these - so if you have other seat thoughts let me know or have any seats let me know - PM's please

GT3 (thx kelly)



Repro Sports RECAROS - by Vintage.  black leatherette - though after having tartan in the sporto would add fabric inserts.

Recaro Rallye 2 - hard to find 72-73 year model only. these maybe familiar to some hot rod afficiandos..whose using seats styled like these now?

Well I'm partial to steelies with a deep dish, preferably the 944 spares that have the round holes.

Like the last set of seats there, as being an earlier car, I think big race seats look a bit over the top and unsuited, yet I would fit the Recaro's

My favourite Porsche colour is Silver Mink, with Kermit green second, so if I was to build a custom 911, it would be either of those colours. Orange is cool though.

All in all, I would build the green car above without the duck tail, yet painted silver with a period race car feel to it. An ST basically

Keep me in mind if you want to unload some 15 x 6 steelies too. Or if you have x 2 15 x 5.5's. I need 2 more
