  1. Yes this is the one. I spoke to them about some restoration work on my 911 but have not visited yet. I will put them aside for now, feel free to PM with any info. I did want to visit them talk through a resto but will act with a bit more caution. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  2. The original glue would have been a contract adhesive given they withstand temperature to within reason and are not too viscous. Can you get this applied to both sides without leaving a ripple when you press it back down? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Collection logistics sorted, I will take the offside wing. Let me know how you want payment.
  4. Yeah, if you can add better pictures, especially of the rusted areas, please?
  5. Will you take 400 for the pair? Are they good to fit a 89 3.2?
  6. My parts disappear when Porsche friends come over. Hopefully I can chop my manifolds off and get to those studs. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. If they fit a stock 3.2 '89 then I will take them. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  8. Rust.co.uk have a cavity wax with rust inhibitors which is pretty good (will post link when on computer). For your application, would you not sandblast first to get rid of the surface rust blotches? Problem is that it normally starts from the inside and works out, but you may get lucky since you've caught it early. Maybe sandblast, then use epoxy primer or just go straight to POR15.

    Are these the same as the 3.2. If so, I will take the other side (or both sides of the previous deal falls through) pending collection logistics (I'm in London!) Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. Could you post the pic please on here?
  11. OK I went down the DIY route. I've taken the left front and rear off first and capped off the copper pipe so I can still move the car if need be. The calipers are on the bench and the pistons are out (I used a grease gun to pump them out). The prices I quoted above don't include new pistons, and these are about £40 each when fitted for you and it's 2 per corner. I can get all 8 Budweg (OEM?) pistons for around £80 (some of mine do need changing) and unless any rusted pistons are replaced they won't last very long before getting stuck again. I felt it was not great value giving them to someone else to rebuild given it's a simple task. I have sourced a local chap (Jackson's Plating) and they will sandblast and zinc for £25 each with a 3 day turnaround. I think the calipers need the zinc coating to protect the metal, but I'm also thinking I will put on the same high temp epoxy paint that BCS use (they supply it) on top of the zinc to keep them looking good for some time.
  12. I'm still at the rattle can stage, but I did a fair amount of research on spray guns but haven't made the move yet. I also have a small 50l compressor which is a limiting factor. There are some guns that I picked which would work well with this setup For primer, this one with a 1.8mm tip. It is also on the rustbuster site. https://www.spraygunsdirect.co.uk/index.php/optiflow-lvlp-gravity-spraygun-1-3-1-4-or-1-8.html#sthash.elEzP6WN.dpbs For base and clear, this one https://www.spraygunsdirect.co.uk/index.php/ani-r150-mini-gravity-spraygun.html#sthash.ctufKRzP.dpbs The gunman review was great for this gun. I'd also buy the ANI inline regulator as well. While these guns are not the cheapest, my research pointed at good results.
  13. Sweat symphony of six. Perfect balance of rasp and burble.
  14. I have it electronically and bought the book a few months ago - it's much better as a reference in paper form.
