Did you get those made somewhere locally, or do Porsche sell them?

That is a very good price, I assume they haven't got the semi-rigid inners?

Some reports of starting problems if ordinary flexible hose is used, it will be interesting to see how they fare.

Slowly striping the remaining parts from the engine bay.
I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do to the car yet resto wise but I have been looking into rollover jigs or possably a full dip and strip

All the jobs on the st are done, the stainless down pipe, rs clutch and few other bits done. So now it's time to turn my attention back to the 924.

Started to tidy up the front end today.
