  1. I bought steering wheel leather kit from Southbound trimmers in Stockbridge and stitched it myself over couple days. Thought it’d be difficult but actually wasn’t too hard with curved needle
  2. Get involved with watching what’s done. I found it fascinating when he worked on mine, although I can’t say I understood it all. As said, Chris will work late to do a thorough job until he’s happy with it. Be prepared to describe how you want the car set up - ride height etc.
  3. Read the small print, and doesn’t cover cars older than 15 years - That’s no good.
  4. Ive used autoaid in the past that were very helpful the one time I needed them. I see they have sister company for Europe called EuroRescue.co.uk and do short term cover. I haven’t used this but maybe ok?
  5. I’ll take set for 911 SC Narrow set. Thanks for getting this together.
  6. I just had vacuum advance connected back onto distributor of my '78 sc, and with the engine warm the car was juddering at 2000-2500 rpm, above ok and idling ok. When I disconnected hose from vacuum advance car ran fine again at all revs. Presumably why it had been removed in first place. Could this be similar problem?
  7. Am not an expert but had similar problem when replacing bushes. Took to Chris at Center of Gravity who rigged up contraption to seperate after first attempt proved difficult to get free. Attached some pictures that might help, but he did an excellent job and may be able to help.
  8. I bought front targa seal from > www.sportwagen-eckert.com and this fitted fine. Think I used a black 3M 8008 sealant to glue in place. Difficult to manage as extremely sticky but with care seemed to do a good job. There was a short video on tube that helped.
  9. Will be curious to know if you notice much difference. Don't have pad in the engine as was removed by previous owner, and wasn't sure if it makes big difference.
  10. Been fun following this post and hearing about doing a road trip like this when you can, and a cars not to just to be left in a garage. Very true.
  11. All sold now except for sun visor - £20. It's in ok condition, but bit soft inside.
  12. Interior light sold Carpet trim sold to phill £5 for lighter £35 for door trim £20 for Sun visor Apologies for not reading rules up front
  13. It's had a repair, but still has all the brass connections working. Not sure if same as coupe but would think so. Will send PM
  14. Getting hang of this. Some other bits for sale... interior light - has single crack in glass and needs cleaning. Carpet sill trim edge - could do with cleaning up and original so scratched. LH sunvisor from Targa - ok but bit soft inside.
  15. Only my second post, but I'm clearing out some stuff I replaced on my 911 sc Targa recently, and I hope they maybe useful to someone. Door cap trim black vinyl. It has small tear in the vinyl at one end. Also original cigarette lighter, with a new socket. The lighter image is bit faded. Anyone who'd like, let me know and how much. Will ask to also pay postage.
  16. Could also try sportwagen-eckert in Germany - they have been good.
  17. I got a Becker Monza for my 1978 sc from chromelondon.com May not be entirely original but looks in place and am very happy with it.
  18. I can't help as I'm no electronics expert either, but would like to know the answer to this question too. My car has 2 wing mirrors (originally it would have only had a drivers side) and is just wired up for drivers side. Because it's a newer version of wing mirror on both sides, but the joystick control is original ('78 sc), the control only moves the driver side mirror left and right, and not up and down. I'd like to be able to figure out if there is a way I could wire up the passenger side wing mirror too, add a simple switch to move control between either mirror, and fix both
