:x lol
i know they don’t offer them anymore. I’ve always wanted a widebody rsr but, I knew how awful a aftermarket kit would look. Seeing this oem set makes a world a difference. I can see so many areas that would be left out for reproduction purposes.

A work of art. That would be cool just to hang on the wall...expensive art though Iĺm sure. Is it plastic?

Viper,
does the car in your avatar use regular headlight buckets like street cars do?

Yes it uses factory headlights. Car started life as a Carrera Cup then was upgraded to an R later so retained headlights.

Original R cars use the bucket that is part of the carbon fiber fender -- as with your fenders. Porsche Motorsport had options for a couple of different headlights that are nothing like a street car (or Cup car). The factory R headlights are covered by plastic headlight covers, available only from PMNA. I heard a recent rumor that they may be NLA, though.

What does NLA stand for? I’m trying to figure out if this is going to even be a feasible thing for me to swap onto my street car. I know I’ll have to address the fuel door.

This isn’t looking like I’ll be able to use them then :/
I’m not one for modifying rare parts like this.

They really are. I keep going back and forth whether or not to use it. I have another question from looking at it. Does the R use different radiators that sandwich between the bumper vent and the carbon ducting that connects to the bumper?

Zimspeed makes a pretty good copy of that, also in CF.
