this month's evo has an article on singer, where they basically cover the entire car in drooling saliva...but the singer people say the 964 is the perfect car for backdating-still the old shape, but with a great engine/chassis/gearbox...

sadly, they don't reveal their panel source...

group buy on carbon fiber panels, anyone?

i'm sort of semi-almost possibly on the verge of backdating an SC (if someone ever buys my alpine renault a110!) could i post it here? prob not, i'm guessing..

It should be a rule that long hood back dates are required to have Fuchs.

Default group buy on 964 CF panels

I thought most BD gurus recommended steel as it will look more 'right". And I was discussing with one of the suppliers back in May , either

http://gt-racing.com/?wpsc_product_category=911-parts
or
http://www.gettydesign.com/911_bumpers.html

who actually recommended GRP over CF as easier to work. I understand the parts are never a perfect fit so work needs to be done, and CF too stiff to fiddle around.

On the other hand, if you can get the supplier for Singer, I'm more "let's cut the whining and order"!!!
no affiliation

it seems to me there's very little stuff made for the 964-am i wrong?

also, here's a question-can anyone recommend the best possible person to do the backdating in the northeast, preferably new york, or NJ...?

That is easy, but they are about 2.5 hours north:

Great thread (and excuse to post pics of my car again...)

Best stuff is underneath though - 993 3.8RS spec engine with cup cams, LSD, SMF, 6-speed G50/03 with short shifter,964RS brakes, etc. - and its 100kg lighter than stock...

Love the pictures in this thread

...although I have to say I've really come to like the original early cars especially with their eager small engines and light weight bodies. Especially when prepared for rally or race.

That utterly depressed me...what's that based on?

Now (or at least today) I'm thinking more iroc/rsa ! I'm such a HUGE fan of the flared rear fenders

It is based on a '91 964 C2.

i've been speaking to a mechanic who tells me that backdating a 964 is much more expensive that using a pre-89 car...does anyone have any experience with this?

those rsr's are amazing....
