  1. Thanks H. I went with a Tiptronic as an antidote to all the 915's I've lived with for 30 years lol
  2. 996 Turbo. The chap that purchased Bamboo lives locally so could have been him Steve. I've just re-upholstered the seats for him actually so it now features a Pascha interior! Cheers A
  3. Yes, I have another 911 but not an IB. I'm done with IB ownership now but I'm still maintaining/restoring them for others. Your car is looking really good btw, glad to see it's nearing completion. All the best FF
  4. Car sold several weeks back. thanks for the 17k views of this thread.
  5. I see your car is now for sale on ebay. That was a short love affair...what happened?
  6. As they say, you learn something new everyday. Thanks FF
  7. What are they for, interested to know? I have a couple of spare rear bumpers removed from 3.2 coupes in the garage and neither have them...
  8. I would suggest they have most likely been drilled by a previous owner for reasons unknown. I've never seen 'factory' holes in that location on any of the UK cars I've restored. Cheers FF
  9. If you were planning to use the Firegum on the heat exchanger gaskets, you'll need to work very quickly because it goes off in a few minutes and can actually cause leaks. The silicone based products are much better and allow more time for fitting. Great work by the way, not a pleasant job. Cheers FF
  10. Yep that example is quite extreme, but have seen a couple of other interiors almost that badly affected over the years. Must have had a lot of UV exposure.
  11. That's extremely faded Maclachlan Tartan which Porsche used in 3.0 Carrera's & 911SC's. Starts life as a quite rich looking Tartan but fades very badly. https://www.lochcarron.co.uk/maclachlan-ancient-heavy-weight-tartan-fabric/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIxZ7F6Ya56gIViu3tCh0F-gqYEAQYAyABEgLP-_D_BwE
  12. It goes to the washer bottle cap. Clear plastic tube.
  13. If it's not too late, I would suggest not taking the floor pan back to bare metal so you retain the galvanised finish. Just use a degreaser and a very light key with scotch pads before applying your epoxy primer and stone guard coating. For the rest of the front suspension, it can be easier to remove the sub assembly in one piece and then strip on the work bench. Top work as usual...have to admire your commitment to this project👍 FF
