Well done, sir!

quick question: where did you buy the plastic trim piece that covers the gap in the rear deck when the rear wiper mechanism is removed?

The plastic trim piece is the oem piece that houses the window motor. I just stuck it back in place after I removed the window motor.

Mega post! Fantastic pictures and a wonderful description of the thought process behind the build. Now it's time to drive, drive, drive.
All those parts are so sexy. Love that you stayed with '17s also.

The GT3/964 combo, that's my dream pair. Coming from a GT3, I bet you look at a 964 differently (even if it's your first). There are some similarities in feel and size, but obviously the GT3 has taken things up 10 notches.

Thank you all for your time and indulging my long post. I hope to be part of the 964 forum for a long time.-Carlo
Amen to that! Great shots so far, and keep posting those drive shots.

A great commitment to the slippery slope of mods. I like what you have done, and obviously a lot thought has gone into your mods. I am always torn between taking a stock car and modifying. As you mentioned they are hard to find nowadays. That said, everything you have done, is great on the eye but it is reversible for a purist if you sell one day. Hopefully you will keep the D90s, steering wheel and other original pieces, just in case

Enjoy.

Ah yes, I see that now. Inspired me to find a plastic plug to cap the hole and reinstall that piece.

TheGreek has a spare OEM plug which is what I used on my car. May want to PM him if you want to purchase the OEM plug.

Yes I was definitely torn on whether to modify this car or not given the condition. But in the end I decided I bought the car for me to enjoy, so not to worry about resale too much. However, like you said, all the mods are reversible if I do end up wanting to sell the car one day. All the OEM pieces are in storage just in case.

Already solved. Found a cap at the local hardware store that fits perfectly, looks OEM, and cost $.60.

I love what you have done. That ride height is perfect. Is it RS ride height or lower? Also, where did you source the brake ducts? Best of luck and enjoy that beautiful car.
