Sorry if it's not your thing, I wanted a nod to the original style but still distinctive.
I'm afraid your rubber is definitely the wrong size there. It should be 245/45/16. Here's a random pic

That might be the case, but Discount Tire only offers one 245/45 16 Tire, at $250/ea and it's a special order, vs the 245/50 16's have 9 sizes available, start at $105/ea, and the difference works out to 122.5mm of sidewall versus 110.25, or about 1.2 cm of sidewall radius.

If I were THAT worried about authenticity, I would be more worried that the staggered phone dials don't appear to have ever come on a 928, and definitely not in bronze.

Here's the dash I've been working on -



yes, it's also the wrong color for that year of car and vinyl instead of leather, plus the thread on the French seams isn't the official 3.2 lb test Porsche thread approved for use in 1985 interior upholstery originating in Germany.

Barry,
You better watch out or she might kick your A$$! She is in the best shape of her life (she and her best friend BOTH said that) and I believe it. She was in last years calendar too and has been preparing for this shoot for 8 months! She really is ripped. She could easily be a fitness model in the shape she is in now.

Here is Monique's softer side...

PS...I don't know why the pics don't translate well...this pic looks like crap...grainy as all hell...they don't look this way normally. Something about the program that I am using to make them smaller does not play well w/ RL I guess.

First pic looks like she is saying FU, second picture looks like she is saying FME.



Me test driving a Tesla Roadster at a track, the sports car opposite of a 928.

Flex screwdriver - one way to get at the clamp on the fuel pump without completely undoing the tank straps:
