Default 924S OE Bodykit

I am putting on soon the 1988 original Porsche Bodykit made by BBS on my 1988 924S. I have found various pics of installed bodykits and Porsche will do the installation . I checked with Porsche classic and they managwed to find a part number for fitting instructions but no luck finding the instructions !!!! I have found and bought two complete bodykits ( pretty rare as no one seems to like them ) and will be putting one on and keep the other as spare. If anyone has retrofitted this OE body and/or has the fitting instructions that would be great help. Posting some pics of the bodykit i have ( will be repainted etc ) and how it looks on a 924S

Iirc these were only offered in Europe. The rear diffuser definitely utilizes Dick Soderberg's patent that was also used on the 951/S2 and offered as option code M472 on the regular 944 from 1987. It wasn't offered for the 924 range so that is probably why the factory allowed BBS to create a specific kit for the 924S. Just my assumption based on some facts.

There is some distant reference in a recent <Flussig Magazine Article> and here's an article that references the designer of that rear diffuser <Dick Soderberg>

Looks like a nice kit, a little different which is good. I like it, GL

Yup, but...

If you like this than you must like that! I would not like to drill holes in my car either since this process can't be reversed. GL

I'm sure some quality automotive polyurethane sealer/adhesive would work,

As i have the original fitting instructions sealer is applied as well but due to the weight and safety reasons , all these parts need to be bolted onto the car. Pretty big pieces i think it would be risky just to stick them on regardless of sealer/adhesive used. I have found out from Porsche Classic the reccomneded sealer as well from Wurth and have two tubs of it ready to use. Just need to make this decision i suppose ....

Also, it was factory part with 944.xxx.xxx part numbers not just BBS aftermarket kit (though there is BBS logo on the parts together with Porsche symbol).

Drill away, says I.

As an alternative, I'd ask these guys: https://www.porscheshop.co.uk/porsch...6-to-1989.html

I have the fitting instructions and according to them there are 24 spots to drill holes ( !!!) . I am very skeptical to do this and some bodykit shop's advice was to use ultra strong glue and sealant only . will that suffice to keep everything in place and safe ???

Not to drag this off-topic but I just wanted to say your car looks great and that's a nice image. Great job of using a relatively slow shutter speed to show the motion and nailing focus on the subject.
