The filter screen is at the bottom of the tank and very easy to access. As simple as removing a hose clamp and placing a socket on the filter. Just remember to empty the tank first!

Thank you! Did you notice any gas smells with that failed gasket? I wonder if that's one cause for the gas smells that seem to inflict these cars.

Awesome build. Just awesome.

What studs are you using for the rear hubs and how long are they?

Happened to find the reference to the dash trimming here: https://rennlist.com/forums/924-931-...available.html

Quoting "It should be mentioned that recovering a 944 dash is still a lot of work even with this kit. The dash be out of the car, the defrost duct removed, and all cracks be repaired before the cover goes on. The AC vent openings and the plastic cluster surround must be trimmed to allow clearance for the material."

This is for the 928 Leather shop, NOT C9.

Originally Posted by touareg View Post
So I am not saying c9 is bad work, just saying when I did research a few years back, I recall, our dashes are vacumed formed with the vinyl on top, and you cant just rip the vinyl off, or you are left with a very poor surface. I imagine it is similar to that packing material that forms around a shipped item and takes the shape of a box.

Anyways I understood some of the vinyl is removed, but not all, making the dash "thicker" in spots after the leather is installed. This can cause issues with the plastic trim, such as the center strips, vents and cluster binacle fitting, since they are now too big. So you have to get a knife and trim. I suck at stuff like that.

That being said, I have no clue if this was an issue with c9 or another vendor, I have no experience with a recoverd dash, and was throwing this out as questions to ask.

Default On the Ground

Michelin Pilot Super Sports mounted and test fit. I think I nailed the ride height the first time the torque tube went back together. I'm less than 1/4" different side to side measured ground to fender well. 10" BBS, 275/35/ZR18 rear.

Looking good Gene!

Do I see glass and weatherstripping installed too? Someone's been busy.
