  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. All makes sense but I'm thinking it might not be worth the trouble? Anyone else had success?
  8. Whale tail x engine cover/decklid. Sorry!
  9. Hello all, The seal between the rear wing and decklid has slumped between both the wing and decklid at the tope corners nearby the rear screen. The spoilers on my car were dealer fit at PDI. I have also noticed a butchers job of affixing the wing to the car when viewing the fitment from the inside. I'm looking to source the corner brackets and a new seal? I think Stoddard has them...anywhere local though? Is fitting the new seal a 'stretch fitment' or does it lay on nicely? I tried to refit the existing seal and found I couldn't stretch it very well. Is adhesive required? If so what adhesive did you use? Thanks all! James
  10. What's the colour and code? Can you send an image of the smile rubber mounting flanges (both sides)? Best, James
  11. I'm in Oz for Chrissy but could do with a set. Will be back on the 10th if they don't sell beforehand.
  12. Hi all, I'm still seeking out an owners manual for my 87 (build date 5/86) with G50. WKD 911 020 87 is the part number and it looks like it was printed in 86. I have 2 questions. 1) Is this an original (NOS) or is this a reprint? How can one tell? 2) Further, the service and maintenance book - was this part of the drivers manual or a separate book? I've seen pictures of drivers manuals with the page for a VIN sticker the same as the service book? Any help greatly appreciated! James
