My project car, which ive had for over a year now, is nearing completion. Slowly but surely, another 924 is coming back from a very bad state of disrepair, with hundreds of dollars and many sweaty hours invested. I am looking for these parts to finish off this project:

1. Ebrake Cables - comes as a pair of 2 ( of course). Mine are stretched and useless now, so ive had to resort to chok the wheels at certain times.

2. Shift boot/Knob - Id prefer them both as one whole item. Im a little picky about this but a Black colored setup is what i had in mind. Its essential that it fit the original plastic attached at the base of the shifter ( what the boot goes around).

3. Sunroof hinges - just recently these broke off when i was stopped at a stop light and foolishly took the roof off without getting out of my seat. Im looking for the front hinges that are above the drivers and passengers' heads.

4. Armrest Switches - There are 4 small switches just behind the shifter, and i only have 2 of them. The power mirror select, and the Flash to pass. I dont know what the other 2 are but i need them

5. Hood Badge/924 Trim - The most essential trim piece of any Porsche. Or something to that nature. Mine needs replacement, and i also am looking for the rear "924" in either plastic or decal.


All of these items i need, and am willing to work with good credit, bad credit... wait no, wrong one...

I pay via postal money order, which has worked out great with other forum members in the past. If thats a problem, we can work out another way.

Except for the Ebrake cables, id like to get a picture or two of the item being bought to make sure its what im looking for.

Again, thanks to all the forum members for their help, advice, and parts for my 924. Hopefully this car will be in near tip top shape soon..

I recommend buying the hinges new. Used will almost always be cracked, or brittle and ready to crack.

Sorry grenadiers, not quite. My 924 is a 5 speed so it wouldnt "fit" if you know what i mean...

This is exactly what im looking for:




A leather boot that fits around the oem plastic base, and a stylish knob.

Unfortunately i havent heard anything from the seller... but thats what im looking for

EBS Racing has your hinges, Rennbay has some nice boot repair kits.

my car has always been and still is a project car...i drive it when i feel like(mostly on sunny days)...i drive it in long journeys an almost never in the city.

There is always something to do at it...always something to upgrade...so try to keep it driveable and have fun.

Yeah... i looked on EBS racing.com and no offense, but their prices are totally outrageous.

25/35$ for sunroof deflector hinges, which wasn't what i was looking for anyway..

Same thing about pricing with Rennbay. But ive already taken care of that issue.
