What are you planning colour wise?

I'm going for Slate Grey, original early 356/911 colour.

As in the grey on the first 911? If so that would be my personal choice also.

If you like the early pre impact bumper 911's, here's a little project I've embarked on that should be of interest. Based on the penultimate air-cooled 911, inspired by the lines of the 71-72 911 ST.

This was how it started out, a good 964 that had been sitting around for a few years, with all the usual 3.6 leaky bits.

I remember test driving 964's when they were new, this makes me feel old :p

Should be a very interesting project. I love the Singer Porsches, so I am keen to see how this turns out.

Correct, I think it will look great with the chrome bright work

The engine was in good shape, the top end look good so didn't touch the mains. Did the heads, cam chains, new piston rings, machine the cam cover faces and resealed everything.

Using the early engine lid, no electric spoiler. Firstly, don't like the look plus won't be doing 160kmh+ down the autobahn, engine cooling would be my only concern, but even contacts who are running similar or more powerful units report no problems.

I'm going to run the oil pipework in the cabin under a false floor to avoid bulky sill covers. This aluminium trim will break up the profile and give me the look more like the early 911's

have you removed the aero sill? or is this litterally just bolted over it?
