Default 993 Project continues - Going Wide

As you know my 993 is continuously evolving and now it's time to fit some proper rubber under the fenders, which means going wide, GT wide!
I know you enjoy these so time to start a new project thread.

Recipe:

Change NB rear quarters to Turbo quarters (OEM Porsche from V-Zweeden)
Change NB rockers to Turbo rockers (OEM Porsche from V-Zweeden)
GT-Racing turbo front fender extensions
FVD 14" GT2 fender flares
FVD 14" Side skirts
GT-Racing GT2 EVO 1 front bumber + splitter
GT-Racing 60" GT2 EVO 2 rear wing (banana wing) in Carbon fibre
Full overspray in Slate Grey Metallic
Work Meister S1 3-pc wheels with gold centers for street 9x18 + 11x18
OZ Alleggerita HLT Red wheels for track 10x18 + 12x18
Kinesis K18 wheels for racing slicks 11x18 + 12x18
Front suspension geometry NB-> GT2


I have ordered all parts and bits some time ago, and should get them in a week or two. The car has been at a race shop getting a new Clutch and 997CUP LSD discs. Then it is time for surgery!

Stay tuned, I will be posting here as we progress. Should be a badass 993 once done!

Wow Juha!!!

Just wondering, why are you having to go to the Turbo fender + GT2 flares? Can you just bolt on the RSR flares?

pictures....here are some to give you an idea!

FVD flares and sideskirts (notice how the flares meet the skirts for a very smooth finish):



EVO 1 front bumper without the splitter (the car belongs to a rennlister):



Work Meister S1 wheels:



GT2 EVO tie rods I bought from another rennlister. I believe these are NLA from Porsche:

I wanted to go all the way and do a GT2 replica. Something about a fat ***...

Can't wait to see the finished product. My 993 is undergoing surgery as we speak, from NB to RSR.
