Re: Stainless cup holder

Hi Howard,

I have sent a PM, lots left. Just let me know what you would like.

The only ones I am starting to run low on are the black anodised aluminium.

Thanks Tom

Re: 1973 911 E RHD - Gemini Blue

Loving the drive and feel of the car. That's good, especially given that you have plenty of other excellent choices! Do you need to thin out the fleet a bit? I do, and for a little while considered selling my completed full resto (the orange car). TBH it wasn't the sunk investment of blood sweat an...

Re: Front seats

James, Thanks for the reply and sorry for not responding sooner. I have Deser sports seats and have learned only recently that these are a pretty good copy of the original sports seats. I think the issue is the foam is too hard / new and it feels like I am sitting on top of them. Almost impossible t...

Front seats

I am considering changing the front seats in my e. I will be fully reupholstering my seats and would rather have a seat I am comfortable with before i go and spend money on the covering.

Does anyone have age appropriate sports seats for sale?

Regards

Tom

Re: 1973 911 E RHD - Gemini Blue

Stopped into see a friend today and took some pictures of the E. Quite incredible the difference in size. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51995545703_2a7850e557_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51994481317_7e718677b2_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51994910971_8fb1c33081_b.jpg...

Re: 1973 911 E RHD - Gemini Blue

Darren, Thanks for the kind comments, have really appreciated your help and subtle guidance along the way with this project.

Re: 1973 911 E RHD - Gemini Blue

Thanks everyone. 50 or so miles tonight with my wife, running reasonably well. Just loud enough that she didn't want to talk over the engine noise. :) My own fuel pump has arrived so keen to get this on and the car tuned, running rich and slightly hesitant at times, better on fuller throttle. Absolu...

Re: 1973 911 E RHD - Gemini Blue
