  1. Jonny, This product is of great interest and am watching it closely. Heating would be a great option (mentioned previously) but from my own perspective with living in hell, and with a 3.8 in the S/C needs all the cooling it can get, with your design, would it be possible to have a radiator in each rear wing? When you get to beta testing, I would love to be considered, I’m headed over to Amboy tomorrow and temps will be hitting 115f, so it’s going to be a trip. My main reason for this though is I have two coolers up front which leaves no space for electrocool gubbins, whilst I realise it can be fitted at the back, it seems much more sensible to cool the motor at the back and the occupants at the front. Best of luck with this, if and when your happy with it, please contact me first!
  2. Im in for 2 pax/drivers side not dash mount though
  3. @Richard Bernau Thanks for sharing, and inspiring.
  4. @Phill Thanks for the update. Per my email payment and addressee will not be me, but details should be clear in said email. Thanks again.
  5. Excellent, thanks for the photos. Keep sharing if you can, My car will be on the water late September so always looking for inspiration......
  6. Hi @Phill, Yes to the UK address, currently here until about 25th so if you have a couple, any colour prior to that great. If not, same address, just they will get forwarded on.
  7. A pair for me please, Driver/Passenger.
  8. As busybee says above, interested for the 3.8. I realise that from a production perspective as few variations as possible need to be included, but my particular car has a Turbo tail which seems to have space for a large inter cooler which obviously isn’t there. Does that space have any potential for fitting a cooling radiator, or is it in the wrong place? It would certainly allow for a larger surface area. Which way does the air flow on these cars? Is it out the top, or in the top?
  9. C'mon Mrs WC, show us mere mortals how to do it. Please.
  10. Ahh yes, southern california Porsche owners, the cradle of all knowledge......
  11. This is interesting, if you are to develop a kit, please, if possible consider the engine swappers also. My shed is a 3.8 with two coolers up front with the required pipes connecting them, it's all a ton of oil, pipe runs, and connections in a car that sees some rough roads, and hard use. I can offer no insight as to its efficiency, but have had to fit fans on both rads, with bumper mounted scoops, and I still have concerns when at low speed. Its not even hot yet in SoCal............
  12. Can any fellow bad weather S/C drivers recommend a rustproofing system or preferably a vendor to rustproof my car? 1983 S/C California car with no rust. It’s coming to Europe late summer for an amateur event and will be staying on. I want to do underneath and any internal bits that are accessible.
  13. What a simply fantastic project, full marks to WC (and MRS WC) for their creativity and hard work, however, it might possibly be the best thread ever seen on a car forum......
