  1. Nice car, but why would they use that crappy radiator cap, and not replace the yellow looking fluid jug?
  2. Maybe it's just me, but that is one ugly color combo. Me thinks it will severely affect it's selling price.
  3. Gotta say, that's looking sharp! Luckily a tranny rebuild is pretty straight forward and economical on these cars.
  4. I'm excited as this is the first 911 I have owned. Have wanted one for a while, and have been searching for the right one. Here's what I got. 2007 911 Carrera 6sp manual Meteor Gray w/ Full leather black interior 39k miles The car is in pristine condition. http://luckydriversportcars.com/used-cars/340311-2007-Porsche-911Carrera#.U8SKaVbw7Ro I am excited to start putting some miles on it.
  5. I was able to repair mine. But, I have heard that Waldron's is now making reproduction 1st gen exhaust hangers.
  6. Ed is correct, and I am aware of what he is stating. I guess it's just convenient for most of us to refer to the ride and handling package as the "GS package" That's also how Coil Spring Specialties calls it.
  7. I got my GS spec springs from Coil Spring Specialties as well.
  8. As posted, I got my tires from Diamond Back Classic Tires. They will vulcanize any size whitewall you like.
  9. Yes, when I originally received my set back from Rally America, several of them had some issues with paint runs, and one had an issue with the chrome. They paid for the return shipping, fixed them, and sent them back on their dime. They came back beautiful. I would highly recommend them. BTW, my wheels were a mess before, and they came back better than new. Take a look.
  10. As a rule of thumb, anytime you have a bolt screwing into anything aluminum, you ALWAYS need to use a dab of anti seize. It's cheap insurance.
  11. Wish I could have gone. Keep missing it every year.
  12. David, concrete blocks not a good idea. Even stacked the way they are. I know a guy that killed himself that way. Please DO NOT get under that car. Even off the chassis, that body still weighs well over 1,000 pounds.

    Depending on how much metal work you need done, but I'd venture at least 10-12k for a "quality" job. BTW, I can recommend a couple of AWESOME Paint and body folks out there in Cali. I wish these guys were closer to me. They are so good, I'm still contemplating sending my car to one of them.
  14. We'll send you the bill, as a commission on the money we are saving you.
  15. Congrats, make sure and post lots of good quality pics of the car when you get it. BTW, I bought my 1987 Grand National Sight Unseen (First car I ever bought like that in my life) When I received the car, it exceeded my expectations, and I am one picky MO FO, let me tell you. Hope all works out for you, and from what I see in the few pics, it looks like a very nicely kept original car. Only thing I'd loose is those hokey pinstripes.
  16. Sorry guys this is an old thread. I actually sold my GS, and am focusing on the 401 car. I've got no room for any more cars at this time.

    BTW Ed, it's Cojones. Yes, I'm half Cuban. LOL Coño meng.
  18. Looking good. That's so awesome to have a completely rust free body to work on.
  19. I need to add to what has already been stated. No way any competent shop that does quality work can do a rust bucket car for 5k. No way, no how. I've got some waterfront property in the Everglades to sell you. It is subdivided, and ready to build on.
  20. Sweet C7. I've got a hard on for one of those. First time a Vette has excited me in many, many years. Have contemplated selling my 87 Grand National for a C7. Still not sure about it though. I'm afraid I'll regret selling my GN if I do sell.
  21. I gotta agree, even me being from Miami, having temps in my garage in the 60's would be ideal. Actually I usually set the AC in my garage to 64. I tend to heat up when I work. Come on Patrick, I started way after you did, and will be done before you, if you don't get on it.
  22. Just wondering if I need to use any exhaust sealant in the area of when the resonator's clamp to the main pipe? Actually any area's that utilize exhaust clamp connections? Looks like a very nice system, BTW.
  23. No, it is one molded piece. The clips are used to attach the piece to the front bumper filler/valance body colored steel panel.
