Jeff, you have hit on a pain point! I mostly ignored all of the delamination discussions because I understood delamination to be the separation of the glass layers and not glass from the frame. Well, it was after the glass was tinted that I discovered the glass needs to be re-bonded to the frame. Agh!

Only a few of you will probably understand the motivation behind this...but I thought I would share anyway...

Front fender liners before and after....

I like that! I have to admit that i also am **** enuf to care about the appearance of these liners even though my car is not concours. I just like to see clean. My front liners have patches of something like black undercoat thats hard to remove but its not on anything else.
So you prepped and painted with the pictured products?

Curious to how long that stuff lasts. I've certainly got a few parts that would be great for.

It depends on how long your driveway is....but seriously, if you read the Eastwood description, they claim the product interacts with the plastic and reflows the surface. It could be fairly durable.

Was at the Porsche dealer the other day and they had a 911 in a new color called graphite blue, amazing in person. Would look awesome on a 968.

Default Black vs Viola

Pushed the car outside yesterday to clean up the garage a bit. It was the first time in two years or so that the car was in the sunlight. Here's a great shot of Viola vs a black car. (black car is the new track rat).
Dash is back in (for the third time) and the interior should be wrapped up soon. Then its on to wiring the engine with the new AEM Infinity ECU....

Can you share what sliders and mounts you're using to make the seats fit, with adequate headroom? thanks
