Thought I'd create a thread.
Purchased off a guy that lurks around on here, I don't however know his user name sadly. He was an interesting chap that has a saab convertible turbo and the 916 was his daily.
Anyhow, purchased her nice and cheaply due to it having a paint conversion to Rosso pink!
First thing I done was to purchase many different paint restorers and a machine polisher. Sadly I didnt take a picture before hand but this was the pink bonnet (the whole car was like it) before I started. - Removed the bonnet as I sourced a better version.
It was shocking!
So after a day at it, this is how she ended.
My aim is to get it looking a bit like a cup, as such I purchase a spoiler and got this fitted
Then a show at santa pod cropped up, with no time at all I got the polishing equipment out again and got her even shineyer.
I ran up the strip but only managed a 14.7 due to awful weather, I have another visit in May so I will try again
So pay day came, I knew I needed noise so I purchased a dual dtm raggazzon.
Next on my mind was that I knew this car is going to see a few tracks, so weight loss was the gain. I purchased some buckets, fabbed the railed to fit and got some harnesses! - So much nicer to drive not rolling around.
After this, my decat came, I got this fitted and then found out I had a blow on the RH down pipe, as such I have one of these in the post... I've wrapped the flexi for now to make do.
I then bit the bullet and got some FK coilovers, I dont think they are so bad...
After this I had a member ask for my teles, so this gave me the opertunity to buy my friends BBS alloys for a rather cool price so I fitted these yesterday.
And this is how it currently stands, next up is to sort the down pipe, fit my cup lip I have ready to spray and get her on some track sessions.
