Well I was back in town after being gone since Sunday, so up early to do the following: 1) Replace the glovebox and overhead lights with festoon LED bulbs. 2) I also took off the headlamps and did the rubbing alcohol and rice cleanout of the inside and replaced the lamps. 3) Went and had my lighted keyblank keyed. The lighted piece that holds the 911 key blank is a 944 part number. 4) Got my Nikon D3 out to take some photos.

Family photo. My next project is to take out the Kenwood stereo and go back to Blaupunkt. The Kenwood was well installed wiring wise, so I would like to find a male Kenwood plug so I can craft a harness so it is plug and play.

That's a great looking family you have! I will have to look into the alcohol and rice cleaning method for the head lights. They look great.

Halfway down this link explains the rice and rubbing alcohol trick.

Been busy with work, but here are some of the projects completed:

Changed the Tokyo at night Kenwood to an early 2000 Blaupunkt CD, put in wiring harness so if I buy a Nakamichi someday easy install
Changed the rear speakers to Pioneer 3 ways
Clay bar, glaze and wax
New Tires (seven years old but good tread--too old)
New Brake fluid
New front hood struts


This morning I changed the instrument light bulbs to LED's. I went with the Vintage ones from ETarga over at Pelican. I took the steering wheel off, popped out the left-most guage from the frunk and worked to the right. Went well, about one and half hours. Before, during and after pictures below. The before and after are ISO 1250, 1/30 at f2.8, +1.0EV to illustrate a heads-up comparison.

Hi Michael,

Beautiful Targa!!! I can't believe I just came across this thread. I'm usually on the 993 forum. I'd love to see it and go for a ride sometime.

I've been lusting after an '89 coupe or Targa but timing isn't good right now. I just got my 993 a year ago. Hopefully someday soon.

Take care and enjoy,
Michael H.

I was happy with how my detailing came out. Single stage paint has its advantages.

Michael,

Beautiful! I know you just got her but if you ever decide to sell as you did with your '87, please put me at the top of the list.
