  1. I have had the same problem. First, remove the radio keys and make sure the cables aren't tangled behind it. Also, the cables infront (in your picture) aren't under the radio. There is a metal bracket/plate that the radio rests on in the center console. If you just push it straight back it will hit this bracket and won't go in. I have done this so much I have pretty good at it. The trick is to push the radio in while pushing down on it, so the back pivots up, hopefully so back will get over the bracket then you can slide it in. You can also remove the AC and the you will have enough
  2. Did you replace the headlight or just tint them?
  3. Anyway, back on topic. I agree about not parting with your money until it has been tested. This mod is actually just a DIY version of the $130+ strut braces you can buy. I am planning on doing it in the next month so hopefully I can give some insight into the improvements it makes then. But anything that keeps the chassis from bending is going to improve cornering ability.
  4. I would like to apologize. I misread your post. It just sounded like your were saying you didn't care about the opinions of anyone except the renntech users, and you didn't want the opinion of people who visit different forums. I also read the entire 986forum post, and saw a few comments on it adding improvements to everyday driving, so that information is in there just not as in-depth. I am embarrassed that I got so worked up, Sorry!
  5. (I misread the above post, so this post commenting on it has no merit or value to this thread)
  6. Not sure about the PN. There is a guy on eBay that sells AC replacement screens. There like $20 but require some soldering, but it is a lot cheaper than paying $330 for a new AC unit.
  7. There is an entire post about this on 986forum. I am planning on doing this aswell, you can't loss for $10-20.
  8. Yes, it mounts to the ears. I will call up Sunset and see if they sell the newer mounts seperately. All I want to know is if I can use the use the new mounts on the original RTS, or if the newer RTS has a different shape and can be used with the older hardtop mounts. And just a statement of fact I was unaware of before I bought the RTS, is that the older style came with both hardtop and softtop mounts. The newer version is the same except that, it has one universal hardtop/softop mount instead of two seperate ones.
  9. I like that picture to, very retro, 550 Spyder! That's a nice video. Thanks or the link! :renntech:
  10. I don't know which ones are real or fake, but the third one down is making me drool! That is good looking automobile!
  11. No, I have the original hardtop only mounts, and the soft top only mount. The hardtop only mounts mount on the hardtop, the softtop only mounts cannot be used with a hardtop because they curve in. When they revised the RTS they made one mount that is for both hardtop/softtop use. I want to use the ones that are hardtop/softtop compatible, like the one you pictured. My question is: Can you use these new mounts on the older style RTS? Do you have the PN? Thanks!
  12. I just skimmed the other posts, but Hankooks are the tires police, etc. use. I actually got all four of my snow tires on eBay for $430 shipped, check out eBay you might be able to find a good deal. I went with dedicated snows because I plan on driving up to the ski resort, but if you aren't planning on that all seasons should be fine. Also, search 1010tires.com for reviews.
  13. That is really cool! How much weight have you tested it with?
  14. The Renovo reviver comes in different colors, to 'revive' different colored tops. Did you by chance buy the wrong color reviver.
  15. Cobra's are my all-time favorite car. My goal in life is to eventually own one! Hopefully not just a kit one. :D
  16. I agree, kit cars are an art and require a lot. If that is what suits you go for it, but I personally don't really like the way these look. The front is great in the first two pictures, but the rear needs help.
  17. Hi, I recently purchased a RTS for $300 used. I plan on using it this ski season, but ever since I mounted it on my hardtop I have been getting a lot more creaking, and noise than normal. Is it possible to mount the older style RTS on the newer body mounted brackets? If so, does anyone have the part numbers of the body mounted RTS brackets? Plus, if I have the RTS mounted on the body, then if I am ever in am accident the RTS will keep my hardtop from flying off. Thanks! :D
  18. I just saw some clears on ebay that look like they were recently stolen due to the various cracks and cuts. I don't see the point in stealing them so you can't sell them because your did such a bad job stealling them, that there ruined.
  19. I've done two 1600+ roundtrip roadtrips. After I got the problems from the previous owner fixed, I have had no problems. If you have a hardtop make sure you have the correct allen wrenches, and I agree to just check your oil, tire pressure, especially the spare, and take a tire goo bottle, because if your rear tire goes out it won't fit anywhere in the car, or in either trunk. My Boxster is reliable and I am sure most others are as well.
  20. Thanks, Tool Pants. I know the batwings are cheap, but I like the idea of two switches. I am going to install my AUX input on the left in a button. And make a custom Ejection Seat logo for the right button. Just thought I would have some fun with it, but I don't want it to be permanent that is why I will be doing the drilling and sticker application on the blanks not the bating. Then when I get bored with the Ejection Seat logo I can replace it cheaper than buying a new batwing. With a new Oil Slick, Machine Gun, or Cloaking Device button. What would look better gloss or matte, on the
  21. What I mean by future use, is that if drill holes in the batwind it becomes useless if I ever want to remove what the hole was drilled for. If I get a two switch one and drill the hole through the blanks instead of the batwing is still intact.
  22. So you have the PN for the matte ones in the flat shape, or if those don't exist the PN for the matte curved ones? And the gloss flat ovals? Thanks Tool Pants, I appreciate all your help!
  23. Hi, I have two questions. Will the two button Batwing fit in a 986? What is the part number for the 2 switch batwing? (the one with a switch on each side) What is the part number for the matte finish blanks that go with it? Thanks in Advance, - Rick :D
