    Aesthetics - Advice please?

    Yes - those seats look significantly better than mine.. thats definitely on the list of to do's along with complete Targa top refurb/rebuild. Not sure yet whether to do the door cards.. think the storage will be useful. Quite like the look of it minus centre console, so will consider that. Those gear knobs are great - that may be on my list now!!! I think I do want to delete the overriders... will live with it for a while and decide. Gotta say - this site is fantastic... friendly and helpful, genuinely impressed guys. and thanks for such a warm welcome!

    Aesthetics - Advice please?

    great knowledge - thanks... Yes, I have no interest specifically in weight loss (other than personally!!!). I just want a great looking place to sit and enjoy, so looking at all the options. Its quite exciting - never done anything like this before... had a Cobra a few years ago, but that had already been sorted when I bought it.... this allows me to put my fingerprint on it - I just need to find out what all the options available to me are, and decide what is the best bang for buck.

    I have read a lot of people deleting the centre console... is there a reason for this other than weight reduction? Guess it may give a little more room for feet?.... anything else?

    Thanks Richard - good to hear that a i probably would not have paid too much attention to the templates, but I will now. Weight doesnt really bother me too much (within reason). yes I too ordered the rears, just to finish it off nicely. Thanks for the advice!

    That looks fantastic! Although I love a ducktail, I am not sure it would look right on my red '82 car with the black Targa hoop, as opposed to your slightly silver one... that works very well. Maybe its a colour thing.... Are they the RS door cards? Is that a popular mod, changing the door cards. give a much cleaner look! What other desirable interior changes do you guys recommend? Mine looks like this at the moment, so have plenty to do ahead of me. Am not happy with the seat bolsters... they seats were recovered previously but the foam looks lumpy! That's high on my list to sort. ....All interior thoughts/tips well received

    Very good - glad I didn't just think, why don't I google that!!! Thank you Nige! You make a very good point about paint fade.... this is one I will need to think on a little more before making a decision.

    ...so overall advice is to remove them? I am neither here nor there. Dont think they look quite right. To date all my Porsche's have been modern (or ferrari's) so am keen to learn from the masses on these things. If I could use photoshop I would try to 'delete' them to see the difference.

    Thanks guys - yes it looks much cleaner without these blocks... will def remove if I can tidy up what's left behind there without too much trouble. Will look at reg light replacement options next.... Shark fins... yes... not sure how I feel about them yet. Always assumed they are there as stone guards...? Not in love with the black ones - is it normal to have them (car is an '82) or have they been added by a previous owner?
  10. Need to make some fixes to my whale tail... corroded fixings have pushed the rubber out, and some of the slats on the black grill are broken. probably just need to source a replacement one and paint it, rather than repair. Would that be the general wisdom? Regarding the rear bumper... Any advice on a cleaner look.... not overly keen on the two large 'overriders' either side of the reg plate.... What options would I have here to reduce/remove? This is just the beginning of advice I am going to be requiring, before the work begins... get ready for more numpty questions coming up...!

    Red!

    That's good to hear.... I am waiting for coco mats to send a template to ensure they fit correctly... Achtung airbox and fan bracket arrived yesterday... look great. Cant wait to actually get the car and make a start!!!! Have decided it will become a mix of classic with some modern touches (hence the cf airbox).... few other tweaks to come as soon as I can.

    Thanks guys... Am not going to rush things... booked in at Southbound for some trim/targa rebuild but that is not until Jan/Feb 22... just have to be patient. In the meantime, will get everything else sorted. Hope to get it delivered next weekend - guarantee the sun will go into hiding then!!!

    Thanks Bugs... well other than a whole load of useful info from IB, I did have a PPI inspection done... it has found about 15/20 things (mainly minor) which we are sorting now. Have ordered an Achtung Kraft airbox, and some coco mats to start my fettling with..... I will let the experts do the oily bits!

    Red!

    So I took the plunge. Here is my new 911 SC 3.0 Sport Targa. It's 1982, and needs a little TLC ! Doesn't need anything too major, structurally all in great shape. She is already in having some works done. Need to get the Targa re-trimmed. Really looking forward to this ownership experience. Will be asking lots of you knowledgeable folks over the coming months no doubt!

    yeah thanks - yes all done and spoken a few times with SCS...Andy seems to be incredibly knowledgeable on these things. Its booked in for a PPI early next week, so all being well with that, pulling the trigger.
