    Finally a proper Porsche
    How much work are we talking, I'm guessing the flat-bed is a hint. Lol

    Details to come on what's needed. I had the car shipped and the final leg of the move came via flatbed. Classy.

    I got a lot of work done, aka took the stickers off.




    Putting the list together for necessary work and parts gathering is getting long.

    Nope, just the Lambo two Porsches: '00 911 C2 and '01 911 Turbo.

    Black car is a Lotus and belongs to my girlfriend as does a Beetle. Technically we have three beetles.

    Did some work to the car:

    removed all the underbody panels in anticipation
    installed function-first motor mounts









    After pulling the underbody panels and a few wheels and taking a look around. It's in really good shape. But COVERED in dirt. It's just everywhere.

    Now I gotta decide if I want to keep these wheels or go a different route

    You crack me up. buying/altering supercars as if its nothing!
    I like the newest addition to your fleet. Maybe widen the current wheels for a proper StanceWorks worthy look?

    Had a chance to park the 996C2 next to my mom's '01 XKR. It's amazing to see how much this segment has changed in the past 15 years




    The Jag is a monster truck.

    l:

    So, does your family own that whole parking garage or something?

    I hope you bought that other porsche so you could do some sort of swap in the 996 c2 while having the turbo on daily duty.

    I wish, just have a few spots in it.

    The turbo is going to be daily duty and the c2 is going to be put up for sale.

    Driveline is officially out!




    While I was in the process of taking out the AWD I noticed that the trans mounts had some cracks. The hardened motor mounts would likely only make this situation worse. So I went with the baller option for a hardened trans mount... window weld.

    after:

    That window weld stuff you just shoot in the holes and it hardens up? Just that simple? That's pretty badass...

    He had no intent to sell the car for that low, it was just a marketing exercise. I got a decent deal on it, but nothing crazy.

    Still pretty sweet - Sucks that the guy marketed the vehicle at a good price point with no intention to sell it for that.

    I wish that I would have gotten a 996TT for $16k. That would have been insane.

    Also, car is in much better condition than the pictures in the advertisement showed. Which is pleasant.

    Continuing the "I just bought a car and need to do some maintenance" things:

    oil change - holy shit, so many steps for the 996TT (turbo oil drain plugs (x2), crank case, oil reservoir).

    K&N filter




    wiper blades




    cabin filter - outside air side



    filtered side...




    I pick up new wheels Monday.

    still haven't washed it.

    After your 3rd 996, at least you know how most of this stuff comes apart - Just weird that so many 'easy maintenance' items are neglected and left so dirty

    It's the type of neglect that I've seen time and time before. Nothing major.
