these type of builds tend to get really costly, so i hope to see this completed! so what have you collected so far?

Door Cards
Instead of importing the RS door cards I decided to build them.


Clamp to hold foam tight for even expansion

Glued and Pinned

As far as RS parts go everything but:
-rear quarter mouldings
-Brand New RS Grill (have a perfect rs collection grill and an oem rs grill in need of repair)
-RS Center Console if I decide to use it.

I might be forgetting a small piece or two but for the most part I have everything.

This Project will be completed, I thought long and hard about the late 80's vintage 911 I could have by the time this thing is done. But if I don't build one now chances are the opportunity to own one will be gone.

The only RS Parts I am interested in are the ones I mentioned above. I already have the brembo calipers and I am going with topspeed for the turbo. Thanks though.

Here is a link to some people who might be interested in your parts -
