    All sorted, thank you for your help. I feel like i've just changed the engine in the car, by simply moving and charging a battery back up 🙂 Thanks again for your help.

    Ok, so i've tried the following but it didn't work. Can anyone suggest or point out what I am doing wrong. 01 - move the battery as i couldn't get the positive clip around it (unscrewing one bolt and moving the battery is about the most advanced mechanical work i've ever undertaken) 02 - i still struggled to get the positive clip around it, but I think it is on it? 03 - attached Negative to the suspension bolt (as this worked for me before on a previous car) 04 - i'm using this portable Jump Start, which works fine on other cars i've had in the past

    Hi, I've tried searching the forum, but I can't find instructions on jump starting the 911. I've also searched the manual and don't see any instructions in there? On Google, i've found the following - https://www.porscherepair.us/porsche-911-1984-1989/jump-starting-car.html Before I go ahead with the above, could someone with a little bit more knowledge me confirm if the above is ok 🙂 I don't want to damage the car in anyway. I stupidly had every window, door, boot, trunk open to air the car in the weather today, and i forgot to turn the interior door lights off, and the car hasn't had a drive in 3 weeks. Tried to start it there and it struggled.

    To Lower Or Not

    Hi, I have kept my 3.2 Carrera completely standard, however I am contemplating lowering it by just 10mm - 20mm (max). I have a few questions which I hope someone can help me with. 01 - Someone mentioned to me previously that the 3.2 Carrera suspension can be lowered quite easily without requiring a replacement of the suspension springs / arms etc? Is this true and advisable? 02 - Any reason you would recommend not lowering the car?
  7. Haha, thanks all. I prefer the black in the photos but up close the coloured work very well with the cream and brown interior. It actually makes the car feel more old / classic... instead of shiny new Porsche badges (which was my worry). I was concerned the coloured crests might have made the car more 'modern' but it does the opposite IMO, when viewing them in the flesh.
  8. Hey, I took the covers of my 3.2 Carrera to let some sun and fresh air at it... and a quick spin to the shop. I also changed the centre crests from black to OEM coloured centre crests. I wasn't going to change them, as I wanted to keep the car completed standard / factory based, however I found out recently that both crests were an option from the factory. I think it works well with the cream, but still can't decide which I prefer. Would you stick with the black or keep the coloured crests on?
  9. Hi, Is there any other number or reference to a standard 3.2 Carrera, similar to how the Turbo equivalent is titled the 930?

    Washing Your 3.2 C

    I presume the car dryers can be dangerous for the paint if you get too close to it... or would you perceive it to be a better option because less contact with the paint?

    Washing Your 3.2 C

    Thank you for all of the replies. My car is cleaned and tucked away for a few weeks, while I start the build of a storage until for it (notice measuring tape on the ground 😅) At the risk of sounding like a mad man... do you wash your washing mitts and towels in your washing machine... while your other half is asleep in bed :-)
  14. Hi, I’m interested to know what your washing process is for your 3.2 C? I know some people wouldn’t put a power hose near it, while others do recommend it for cleaning out arches etc. Also, what do you use for washing the body & paint on the car?
  15. Great, thank you. I think a door to drive into the unit, and open the side of the unit to get out.
