Ive got just about the same pile of parts in my garage!!!!!

Dell,
Ive got the PSS9s on, all new brakes, rebuilt the axels and changed the oil and filter. I plan on getting it down to Werkstatt soon to have Kenny and Scott finish it up. Im hoping to have it down VIR some time in Nov or Dec.

Do you think you can be ready by the Carolinas PCA event at VIR in late Nov? That would be some serious fun! I'm already registered and my car should be done in the next week or two.

I dont think it'll be done by then but it may be close enough to bring it just for fun. We'll see.

I'm picking up all the "extra" stuff not listed that came off the car like suspension, exhaust, etc. Feel free to PM (or post here) anything you need and I'll let you know if it's "in stock"

Dell,

much thanks for the photo !! I thought as such since a 295-30-18 is a 25" common to the 911s.

figure that boxters are running the same smaller diameters as well.

i have a 968.... got one of those dumb spare tires that crinkle up and all and i hate it.

my spare is 25.6" diameter when inflated...

i also run 25.5"~25.7" tires 275-35-18 [the correct diameter] and non-lsd.

which brings me to the next question---

would it hurt my non-lsd rear end to run different sized rear tires in the event of a flat ?

about 5/8" difference in diameter size.

thanks a lot for the help Dell, and good luck with your beautiful track car.

Very welcome.

I can't imagine there would be ANY problem at all. I wouldn't be nearly as concerned with the LSD as I would with the ABS system. And .5" is nothing the ABS system will freak out about.

Hey, not sure if this is something you've taken out or still have. It's just the small light cover above the rear-view mirror. I was actually missing one of those black domes as well, but I found one randomly on eBay. For the life of me I can't find that light cover. Did you happen to take yours off?

Otis, I'm not totally clear what you are referring to. Would you happen to have a picture of what you are referring to? I'd be glad to check my "parts storage room"
