Building the ultimate 964 – Update 1

To bring this web page up to speed with where I am with the build, the car is currently at the paint shop having been stripped and had the weld in cage installed. It seems that my idea of stripped and Matt at ETA Motorsports idea of stripped are 2 different things!

The paint shop has been slow going, partly because they are busy and also because of the amount of prep that goes into a job like this. My remit on the interior finish is that I'd like it to be bodywork quality and in a style very close to the Guards red car on the homepage.

I have a box of items which seem to be growing at RPM Technik who are the Porsche specialist that I use, who incidentally have been fantastic throughout the whole selection of a car to current state of build.

I have sat ready to go onto the car:

KW Clubsports (Thank you to Richard at KW)
Powerflex poly bush kit
RS engine and gearbox mounts
Rennline monoball front top mounts
Recaro SPG seats now Porsche crested Thanks to Southbound
RS doorcards (Southbound)
New handbrake and gearknob
New door entry trim
Lightweight rear glass
Scroth Harnesses
Momo steering wheel

Once the car is ready to be fitted back up by ETA Motorsport, Pete from VT Systems who has lightened the loom of all things not needed anymore will re-tape the loom and fit the alcantara dash.

Pete is a great Auto Electrician who has worked on many race cars and has an extremely high standard of work.

The car should soon be ready for transport to RPM for the remainder of the works.

I will take some more pics once the roof has been finished and the interior has been painted later this week.
