I replaced the HID bulbs on the Cayenne, and got a set from ebay, make sure you get either philips or osram.

After the auto-x today I had a tire failure on a brand new set of tires. The sidewall split. Sending a huge thank you to several of our VMSC members that stayed and helped with jacks, tools etc. Especially Marc Portanova. He loaned me the front wheel/tire off his GT3. Now that's a real friend. I got home safely. Thank you all. Now, that call to Tire Rack and hope they will step up.

Glad you made it home. Hope you can sort it out with Tirerack.

Continue on the disassembly of the seats.



These seat shells are not painted from the factory. I think they never expected these cars last that long.



I cleaned them up a bit.



And gave them some paint.



I got a set of new covers on the way, as well the bottom foam.

Next the seat belts.



I hate when people put masking take on parts like this and then the tape stays on it for over 10 years or longer.



They cleaned up OK, and are ready for assembly.





The rear seat came out nice as well after some scrubbing.



I picked up some vinyl today, to recover the rear shelf and the rear side panels, knee pads, etc.

Cheers
Engelbert

Here is a little update:

I started to clean more engine parts. No comment needed.















The parts not seen in this picture will be stripped and plated










I started to take a look at the seats.


The hinges looked pretty rough.


But I was able to clean them up.


Taking the seat bottom apart.




I think I will need to find replacement for the old horse hair stuff and replace it with some foam.



I also want to find a way to make the seat bottom a bit more firm.

That's it for today.

Getting back on the 911.

Started sorting out some items and blasted the Cylinder cooling sheets.



And powder coated them. One is missing in the picture. That need some small area repaired.



Small stuff, but there will be more progress coming up soon.

Happy New Year

Here is a little update. I need to get this car off the lift. I was able to touch up the corners with yellow. It's not a super nice paint job, but it will do for now.

Always looks better on the pictures and in the sun, LOL.





Ready for assembly. Now I looks at these parts and need to do something. I cannot install it as is.



I got the Headlight supports Powder coated. The most work was to get them all clean blasted.


Installed




Front Bumper is mounted.


I just need to come up with a solution for the fog lights. I want to use the fog lights which were on the car with the rubber bumpers. But I will have some time to think until it's drive time again.



Getting the rear side ready.


Bumper is installed.


Just need to find a nice plate holder and a plug for the hole.


That's it for now. Need to do some wiring in the parking garage and add insulation to the ceiling, etc. then get back on the 1970 911.

Happy Holidays to all
Engelbert
