Default CyCloNe!ís 944 S Build Thread

Well as many know I picked up a 944S for basically nothing. It shows 9,5XX miles on the title history and just under 10k on the Odometer. I am sure this isnít actual so donít worry Iím not that stupid...usually. This car runs well but needs a full work up mechanically and cosmetically. Below are some pics from the pick up day to today and a list of upcoming work. Current Project is a cut and buff of the old paint still in progress.

18Ē Staggard Wide Wheels
GT2 Fender Flares
951 Front Bumper

Repaint

Interior:
CS Console Tray
CS Steering Wheel or Similar

Well made some more progress. Bought a buffer but thing was junk so this is all by hand at the moment. Looks a lot better than the starting point and really need to wash it and hit a few more spots. This was done with a terry cloth and 105 Heavy Cut Compound. Going to borrow my friends buffer for round 2 with the 205 Polish next. Also gona try the wax wheel on the double sided molding tape.

I think the answer is directly linked to how thick your wallet padding is...

Lol thats probably true as well... I have a few swap parts currently and honestly was part of the reason i got rid of my last car. I didnít want to cut up the body for the GT2 flares and put the engine in a 951 since they are low production. I understand the better starting point with the trans, brakes and suspension but just couldnít do it for some reason, probably a unicorn would die in the galaxy if I did lol. I figure the cost will be close to the same either way. If I keep the 16v motor I will probably vems, exhaust, cams, s2 intake, pistons, rods and boost it which probably wonít be much different than the v8 swap. Just with vems, cams and s2 intake that probably puts me at the same cost. I can do the v8 for 4k currently since I already have a few parts.

Tip of the S exhaust was breaking, got a regular NA one going on for now. Looks like only main difference is the resonator on the S catback.

Well found out the wires for the fan resistors were cut off... did a quick repair to make sure everything works. Iíll go back and loom it later. Also found out the car appears to have rear turbo phonies on all 4 corners. I have two questions though.

1) what temp does the low speed fan come on? Both mine cut on at 3/4 on the temp gauge (pic in next post)
2) what part is missing here in the pic? Near the driver fender.
