the classic "best car since sliced bread", to get it to Donnington, I replaced, high tone horn, distributor, alternator, turbo, front suspension struts, both window regulators, near side wing mirror, all window switches, exhaust and due to the camber being altered to suit the non standard 928 dustbin lids I had to replace the wheels along with new tyres. On top of this their is still a to do list as advisories all flexi pipes to the callipers have corrosion on the ferrules along with metal rear brake lines to replace, it has single handedly wiped out all my spares, total cost to get it to show £8,000,

Ouch! And it still has that nasty reverse dent in the NACA duct!

Lovely colour scheme though :cool:

that happened because a PO had put adjustable shocks on it with a protruding nipple, yet again they fit but they don't fit scenario,

it is the diamond silver/meteor grey combo and it still has original idents under the bonnet to verify it was a two tone. The silver is the original paint work, the grey has been re-sprayed, by a PO, got to get the rubbing strips back on,

:drool: :drool: :drool: Simply stunning. Really nice to see cars being done to a high standard. I think your absolutely right to keep them standard spec, I am sure this will maximise their future potential, all three were cracking cars. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Damn right. Keep up the investment Kozzy on these cars. Best to pay out to get a quality job done in refurbishing them now. Then you know they are just a turn of an ignition key away from a nice and enjoyable, boosted but reliable drive :grin:
