Kirby, I know you're not looking for feedback, but I have a question/comment. Have you considered swapping your side skirts for the '02+ skirts (from the GT3) with the sharper crease? It might pick up the sharp edges of the GT3 nose and the new wing a bit better. Just a thought, in case you ran out of things to spend $$ on

LVDELL, the front spoiler were made to fit the 99' but with the 03' styling.

Karlooz, Im flattered to hear that. Let me know if I can help.

vove, I think the question we're trying to ask is where you got it from. It isn't OEM -- did you get it from MA Shaw, Getty Design or another aftermarket shop? I'm just curious because I haven't seen it before. It looks really good.

Also, which body shop did you use? Was it a local NoVA shop? I want to get additional work done on my cab and would like to know find other good body shops besides Wagonworks (who I used for the RUF front spoiler and skirts). Thank vove.

Scouser- I really like that rear wing that you've got on the cab. Pardon my ignorance here, I'm still really new to this (and, in fact, don't even have my car 'in hand' yet), but who makes it and does it still allow the movement up and down to function with speed and/or the switch?

Thanks!

Programmatore, Thanks for the comments...I purchased the front spoiler from an aftermarket shop out in the west coast, precision porsche. I had a friend who is also a porsche nut that happens to work in the paint industry do the paint work and we installed it ourselves. You can try euro pros for your cab needs, Ive seen their work and its second to none but watch out for the turnaround time.

Here is my 996. I love this car. It looks a bit different now...added some clear sides, GT3 center caps, and a silver hood emblem, etc.

Thanks Nick. But I may be about to change it as I am soon to have a TTP GT2 front bumper installed and I am presuming it will affect aerodynamics and hence require a bigger wing to balance the front downdraft.

The whole body kit including wheels is from Khan, the wheel company.(http://www.projectkahn.com/Gallery/) click on Porsche->996 Cab .
I am fairly certain they don;t make it anymore though. Yes, the tail still auto lifts and the tail switch (inc my mod) works.

Here's some close up pics of it down and up.
