Roll Bar removal on 2007 Boxster


Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

Has any one removed the roll bar from a 2005 and up on the Boxster.

I am looking for some pictures and instruction to remove the roll bar and the leather parts without damaging them.

I am going to have my 2007 roll bar painted the exterior color hope some one can help with this project.

regards

secuuda

Secuuda, I can give you a little advice. Mine was done by the dealership, due to the fact that Porsche "forgot" to do this at the factory on my custom order.

1) The top also has to come off, partially. To get the roll bar out.

2) Make sure the roll bar if properly prep'e prior to painting. Including primer.

3) Don't put the windscreen inserts (black parts in the hoops) back in for several weeks (+4) until the paint is fully cured.

ToolPants once posted pictures on how to remove the "leather" parts (and tool used) from the roll bar.

Can you get it powdercoated vs painting? How much are they charging you? A quality job will be about $1,200 from what I have seen. The factory option was about $535 IIRC. Aftermarket is never cheap on these cars.

Good luck. Post pictures when completed. It's a great look.

secuuda --

I'm thinking of buying a Carmen red 07 S w/ a grey interior, and if I do I'll want to paint the roll bar and the console. Did you paint your roll bar? How'd it come out?

Anyone know about painting consoles?

Also, secuuda, I've been looking everywhere for an 07 S in carmen and beige, to replace my 2000 w/ the same colors. I really like those colors but can't find it used, so I'm thinking I may settle for the grey.
