  1. Thanks for that tip about the ripple in the hatch and the photo! I did a quick check of my top after getting home it seems to be pretty good. I have some fairly long semi-rigid long boards that should help identify these problems when I do the prep work. And although I am generally pleased with the top, I did not mean to imply it was paint ready either. There is definitely finishing work to do. My plan was to do trial fitting to the car before I do all the prep and paint work. I have a few other projects I am in the middle of so it we be awhile before I get to this... plus I am enjoying the car now that we are into the nicer weather! I also need to install the spin locks which looks to be more of a pain than on the 986 cars. I looked into this briefly and was left with the impression that I would have to remove the soft top to do this. Is there an approach for doing this that you recommend? I have not yet decided what color to paint the inside. My car is white. I am debating whether to paint the inside white, like the outside, or black. I am not sure what the inside of a cayman looks like. My interior is stone grey. One other thing, I noticed zeintec placed a few videos on youtube as assemble aids. I can handle the paintwork OK but have not had the experience of glueing in window glass. One of the videos shows this. I appreciate the tip! Kevin
  2. OK... let see if I can post a photo of the zeintop & packaging. I am going to install the spin locks this week if all goes well. Then I will test fit the top If this works I will post more. http://s864.photobucket.com/albums/ab208/k...pg&newest=1
  3. Hi All, OK, so I have all the hardtop spin lock parts and bolts ready to install in my 987 boxster. According to some documentation I have read it appears that the soft top has to be removed to install these, unlike the procedure for the 986. It seems when porsche redesigned the top they neglected to leave enough clearance for the bolts to slip past the top frame. It looks like a time consuming proposition. Has anyone found an easier work around then removing the entire soft top? BTW, this is for a zeintop DIY kit I received a few weeks ago. I want to prefit it on my car before I paint it. Thanks!
  4. Hi, I am interested in adding the porsche cd changer that mounts in the front trunk. Is a visit to the dealer required? Can I buy one on ebay and install it myself? Is any reprogramming of the radio required or and special cables needed. Has anyone done the install on their own. Any simple mp3 plug in options I should consider? The only jazz station in my area has changed format so the fm radio is almost useless to me (except for NPR & the tappet brothers!) & one cd is not enough. It is a 2005 Boxster with standard cd radio...the car itself is fantastico! Thanks, Kevin
