Sorry for the posting spam, but now I'm caught up! Thanks for everything I've learned from you all over the last 18 months, and I hope to contribute more to RL!!

Some final pics from a drive a few months ago:

Nice work and nice pics! You have really given your car a "second chance".

The old girl started to leak in that classic 964 location - the lower valve covers.

It looked like it had been leaking far longer than in my ownership. Sort of disappointing that Weltmeister missed this in the PPI. <_<
Surprised AutoArt didn't pick that up either when doing the rebuild.

beautiful pic and nice intro - welcome! Looks like you have the right idea ...

ps - funny how 'modern' your 964 look next to all those colorful older 911s!

Thanks. I have most of December off on leave, so there's a long list of more things to do. Getting a random-orbital polisher for Christmas so that's a few days gone in the garage!

Yep...lurker!

Yes - not just AutoArt, but also Weltmeister. I guess there's two explanations...it started after I picked it up, or they didn't do as good a job as I'd hoped...

Yep! It does feel sort of modern.

Went out with these fellas a few weekends ago. I swapped keys with the owner of the 356 speedster (real!!) and that was an eye-opener...

The owner is a German guy - he said he'd recently returned home and drove a 997 (not sure which model). He said he enjoyed the 964 more than the 997 which was a nice compliment. For me, the 356 was absolutely amazing - but certainly not modern..

Great post and awesome job resurrecting your 964. As many said, it looked good when you bought it, but you've been a dutiful owner. I'm sure your car is appreciative. Very cool.

Looking great! Care to offer up some impressions on the spin in the 356?

Also-
"I never had any issues with cooling or oil pressure though. Indeed, it takes quite a while to get up to temp."
Possible the thermostat is not closing all the way? I just pulled mine apart to replace the piston/spring insert after it stuck closed. The temp gauge warmed surprisingly quickly with it not opening at all.

Was thinking the exact same thing.

Welcome to RL. Great intro post. Looks like the car found the right owner!

Some crisp rolling shots. Enjoy the car. Surely there will be some headaches down the road, but its all worth it.
