Looks great. Maybe time for a new exhaust system? Those pipes look like the diameter is too small? (especially off the headers). Let's see some interior shots too.
Love that color!

Hello again.

Thank you for your kind comments and insights. Will post more pictures soon and throughout the preservation.

Two of the things I definitely plan to do immediately besides a good steam cleaning and a thorough check of the car are:

- exhaust

- suspension

any advice always welcome.

cheers!

Hey guys

A little update. My car has now been at Porsche Centre Cape Town undergoing a top to bottom preservation for the last year.

They're just fixing the air-conditioning at the moment and it should be out next week.

Pics!

Can't wait to see more pictures of this car when it's completed. What an amazing and rare find! Wow. Such a cool juxtaposition seeing the shot of the 928 on the lift in the new facility with the back of a 991 peaking out from behind.
