  1. So if I get to this stage, can I do anything about it? Can I tighten/loosen these bars to pull the dash back to position? Can I replace these beams? Or is it a dash out/dash replacement job?
  2. So yours doesn't have this issue? Mines a coupe and I am not aware of any flood damage (rust etc)
  3. Could someone check/photograph theirs and tell me what their is with.
  4. Hi all, If you draw a virtual vertical line through the tachometer whilst sitting in the drivers seat, the dash binnacle is not a-symmetric - well not in my car anyway. When running my hand over the top of the dash instrument binnacle I also notice twin 'humps' rather that a continuous, smooth radii. Is this normal or has my dash binnacle warped in the heat? James
  5. What would I be looking at for a set of Boge dampers fitted? What did you actually have done and how much if you don't mind me asking?
  6. Sorry off topic for a second: Have you got a C3.2 that I saw at the Shell station a few months ago? Dark blue/black with a whale tail I think?
  7. Can recommend Angus @ Greatworth Classics. He's done some brake work for me on my 3.2 and always has something air-cooled in for bodywork. To that end I need to drop in and see you Angus for a quote on some kidney work. *gulp* James
  8. Hi all, I have a friend wanting to look at a 996TT in the Lancaster area and would like an independent inspection done. Do you know of any Indy's in the area that you would recommend for the job? I fear these cars are too old for OPC's now (happy to be corrected of course)! Kind regards, James
  9. Hi all, I've got a g50 3.2. Its at 74k miles and It feels a little loose and harsh. I believe it has the smaller Boge dampers. As a minimum what in addition to dampers should I look at to improve the ride and bring the dynamics back where they should be? Any idea on costs around a damper and bushing refresh? Kindest, James
  10. I believe these are the parts I need. Can I get these from OPC? https://www.stoddard.com/93051225800.html.html https://type911shop.co.uk/epages/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766/Products/1485
  11. All makes sense but I'm thinking it might not be worth the trouble? Anyone else had success?
  12. Whale tail x engine cover/decklid. Sorry!
