Petu, no hurry with the parts!


Whenever I question my sanity...pouring all this money into the 993, I watch this video 20x in a row:

I love this video, it is an excerpt of a longer one. The turbo sound/blow off valve is amazing.

With all this money you should of bought a professional car garage lift instead of the scissor lift. I plan on getting one to work on my 993.

What's wrong with the scissor lift?

It took me 2hours to unwrap it and put it underneath the 993. And I can move it anywhere I like as it is not bolted into the floor.

A professional garage lift....Open up the floor, dig a hole, throw in some steel, poor in the concrete, let it dry. Oh, before that, put the car back together (without the lift), roll it out of the way.
Then after the concrete has dried, assemble the lift, drill the holes, bolt it to the new concrete slab, connect the electrics etc. Would take a bit more than 2hrs I think... =)

+ I don't need/want a 2-pillar lift in my home garage. We have a shared shop with my friends that has 3pcs professional lifts . And at the moment we are looking for a bigger shop.
Reason I am doing this build in my home garage at the moment is the Limited time I have due to current work load.

Ain't broke, why fix? Spend on tools, but spend more on parts!

I picked up the front suspension parts today from soda blasting. It will be nice to put these back together with new parts. Only downside is a terrible flu kicked in, so nothing will happen this week with the project. I just hope I get better by thursday as I should be travelling to Germany to do the Porsche factory tour...

I have power to compensate so i guess bigger is better in this case...
Juha,

Consider going with a Crawford wing. Shoot me an email if you have questions.

Project is looking totally out of control

Remembering the previous cage discussion ...
doesn't need this kind of door badly site protection through the cage?

...as e.g. in detail discussed for the new Le Mans technical regulations ...
