Only a couple of things left for me to do.

1. move the seats from the 944 to the 924 (after fitting the race seats in the 944)

2. Take the 924 for its last run of the season

3. Wash it, wax it and wrap it for the winter.



I need to move somewhere warm all year round.


Move West young man, move West...

So wish I could move west.
Too many reasons to stay in Ontario.

LOL At least I have a few months to readjust the rear drums and replace the relay for the Rad Fan to continue when the car is turned off.

That and get the 944 running. That is a whole other kettle of fish.

Morghen,

Please keep doing what you do.

I think you'd do well to open an art museum or something like that.

You could probably get hired by Porsche's restoration facility by sending them your photos & a collection of your thoughts on cars & videos and whatnot. You represent well... and that certain vision that you have is a rarity. It's very classy and cool.

Thank you.

Here is the red one flexing its muscly butt at the Porsche experience center - Silverstone.

Don't worry, I've still got my OG 931 which is the same Inari Silver over Onyx Green.

definitely the last trip in the 931, had to take it out to make place for some winter tyre change in the garage on the other cars. So much fun when you havent driven it for a while, and power is so good at 0 deg C ambient temp. Sorry about the lack of daylight, but it will be like that until spring here in sweden

My 931 didnt have a front sway bar(when I got it) so today I finally installed one...it has some stiffer lowering springs so its not too soft.
Wow! having its factory sway bar makes a significant difference in how the car feels and drives.
Much more composed and feels more precise turning into corners at higher speeds.

A friend's resto-mod shop.

Nice upgrade, maybe you can get a step further and go even stiffer. the 27mm/16mm from a 944 turbo should be easy to get your hands on. The 931 is pretty soft with standard 23/14, upping it a bit makes wonders. 28/22 adjustable is the best upgrade Ive done to my car

I have a welder, which doesn't by anyeans make me a welder. Tired of the front door sagging I finally noticed the crack by the top of the top hinge. Figured I could probable get the mig in there without taking everything apart.

Not pretty, but the door shuts as it should now without me having to slam and pull up at the same time.

That looks quite similar to the results I got from the body shop.
