  1. Richard, thanks for a prompt reply. Is that all there is to it? I.e. couple of holes and the a piece of tubing welded in place? If You could post some pictures of the process that would be appreciated. I plan on doing this as well...if it is that simple. The link You attached is the one I meant - same company.
  2. Has anyone done something similar: Sport Sound Mufflers These are done out of original ones. How labour intensive this is?
  3. Hi, My vehicle does not have self leveling headlights, but if I would buy a set what parts would I need? The headlights also have the washer nozzles. Is the wiring in place already? The car is an early 99 996. Thanks in advance. ps. I tried the search but didn't find an answer..if it's there sorry in advance :)
  4. The slats are not glued into the housing. There are two long pieces with small nooks where the slats attach into. Pull these out and then You can take the slats out easier. The slats are numbered so You know in which order they go back in. That's they way I did it, might be wrong but worked for me anyhow. I don't know how the wheel comes out though.
  5. As far I haven't had any problems with bubbling or the material coming loose. I will keep my fingers crossed though ;) I used a hairdryer to heat up the old material and then carefully / progressively pry it out. I left the old foam in its place, as it should be. I used PPG paint and clear coat and the color is porsche polar silver. As is in og. alu-look kits I guess?
  6. Sorry, I was just being flippant. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> That makes two of us :)
  7. The wheels are powdercoated and I'm having hard time finding a suitable paint for the wheel centres to match the wheels..but working on it.. I didn't even know that one could source a black bonnet badge? Where?
  8. Here's a pic of my RUF bumper installed. Don't have the grilles in place yet nor the side markers and I'll be destroying the headlights by painting the blinkers black :) (these will be changed anyhow as these are the old orange style which can't be converted..and the resale value of such headlights is about 10 bucks..) from: to:
  9. If You referring into the white tab which is in the top middle, that was released but the cluster still does not come apart?
  10. How tight of a fit is this? I've got everything out (as far as I know) but the pieces just don't come separate. It seems that the gauges are not willing to separate from the rear piece of the cluster. The front is already out of the way. This is how far open I can get it and I just don't have the guts to pry it more open. Any ideas which are still holding it in place? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Do I need to unplug the white, blue and black connectors from the back of the cluster as well? It seems that these are the onlyones keeping the cluster together but they are a real pain in the xxx to get out!

  12. There are plenty of topics about changing gauge faces etc. but I didn't come across into instructions how to take the whole cluster apart in order to access the bulbs which illuminate the analog gauges. Anyone?
  13. Does someone know if the bulbs available from http://www.led.net would suit into analog / digital gauges? I'm looking for green bulbs... Car is a '99 996.
  14. If $tealer takes $20 per wheel, that should be a pretty good benchmark IMHO? If the price would have been $250 which that Discount Tire shop said was their normal price, that'd be more than 200% more...which is a helluva margin I'd say :) Oh well, live and learn the one to blame might be looking back from the mirror in this case ;)
  15. Welcome to the world of Discount Tire then :) I've asked from their customer care department WTF is going on as I was charged $40 per wheel for mounting and balancing. When I paid this I asked from the manager isn't this a bit high...he said that normally he charges $250 for set of 4. Btw. this is the same place which marred two of my wheels upon dismounting of the tires. These were repaired but the car was crippled for 5 days as one of the wheels was not repaired up to satisfactory standards in the first time.
