Purchased my car with the 911 badge and it’s a little too simple for my taste. I changed it to the Carrera 4S badge. Was not easy to do and came out almost perfect.

(Actually I did this yesterday): Refinished/redyed my drivers seatback outer bolster. The previous owner was rough on it, it had been redyed by the dealer before I bought it but not properly prepped, so it lasted only a year. I had a “pro”’ redo it, I was never happy with the result but it lasted about 8 years. Finally got around to doing it myself...careful prepwork, careful tinting of factory-code paint to get a perfect match to the faded/darkened surrounding leather. Also I used crosslink additive and put several coats of satin clear on it for maximum durability. Came out great I believe.

Looks great, results like that takes talent. What did you use? I can't quite see in your photo.

Default Recieved my Car Cover

Finally got my indoor car cover. Tried it on for size outside as the Porsche goes under another car on the lift in the garage and is difficult to put on inside

Really excellent work, Ben Z. I need to learn how to do this.
