  1. Hi Dominic, I have decided to restore the original lid so will be keeping it
  2. Will take a look Roy ๐Ÿ‘
  3. Thanks very much Ron and for sure will drop you a line if I get stuck for something relative to these cars, your engine looks great!
  4. Nice one Ron, I can see the correct washer jets now ๐Ÿ˜€
  5. PS Ice Grun metallic is my favourite 911 colour!
  6. Sorry re read that, my dealer friend sold a Fiat to the wife of the chap that passed away. He loved the car but did not have a garage for it so had it sat under a cover for years, he did not drive it but started it up once a month which may have led to the engine cover lower edge rotting away due to condensation.
  7. Thanks all for all the replies, this really is a great place for Porsche chat! I did email you Guy at PCGB but may have got the address wrong, will check. It does have the passenger mirror but seems like I need the correct washer jets for sure Jason ๐Ÿ˜€. Sadly the owner passed away a few months back and I got the car from a dealer friend who sold her a Fiat (I ended up buying her old Panda as well๐Ÿ™ƒ). I will look out for an old lid to repair the whale tail but will probably fit the non tail lid I have to speed the restoration up. A bit disappointed not Arrow blue but will go factory with the Minerva, both blues work really well with the interior. I got both cars together today for the first time. Best Keith
  8. Ah makes sense now! Thanks very much
  9. Me again ๐Ÿ˜€, I have found a PCGB letter saying that this car has Factory Fitted Options of front and rear spoilers, 7 and 8 inch Fuchs and Esr/w/m/a, does anyone know what the last items are? Also a subsequent modification of pressure fed tensioners.
  10. Thanks John, I will be restoring it and thinking original colours and whale tail but with the non tail lid finished in the blue so the new owner (or me!) can have a change of look every now and then.
  11. Structurally very sound and interior in good condition (new carpets and headlining for sure). Matching numbers and a good colour combination, I like the Arrow blue but it sounds like I should go Minerva as it was built, to be attractive for a future sale. Thanks for the all the replies I've learn't a lot more Is the fibreglass with metal frame engine cover original?
  12. Hi, I have just bought a 1976 Carrera 3.0 and according to the Red Book is a J series but online searches say I series, VIN is 9116600250, is this a rare car? It is currently diamond blue was supplied in Minerva and want to restore and finish in Arrow blue. It has a whale tail fitted but its fibreglass with a rotten lower frame, is this original or should it be all metal? I have just bought a replacement engine lid without tail as I prefer the look without. I also have an Australian delivered 1977 Targa so will eventually let the coupe go, if it is quite rare maybe I should do more homework before stripping down! best Keith
  13. Just got my 911 back after a turbo track rod conversion etc and I have had new brake hoses fitted, definitely improved my brakes ๐Ÿ˜€, thanks for the advice!
