At the 16 year mark, my leather is beginning to show its age, so I would like to use one of the dye products available to spruce them up. The problem is getting the correct color.
I have always thought of my 2000 Cab as having the lighter of the two gray options. From browsing on eBay, I became convinced that Graphite Grey was the darker of the two, as it certainly looked darker than my leather in eBay ads. Unfortunately, the good folks at SeatDocs.com did not have a formula for a lighter, unspecified grey. At LeatherMagic, they have a Space Grey ... but it appears very dark ... certainly darker than my color. Finally, the tag under my hood says "CE" where the interior color code is located. I believe (but cannot recall where) I read that leather code "C" denotes Graphite Grey. So ... I am thoroughly confused
Any help / enlightenment would be greatly appreciated.
I have recently gotten a set of replacement stalks for my 02 996 from Brian P of this forum, as one of the knobs broke off flush with the instrument binnacle.
I grabbed a set of new knobs from local Porsche Centre, so now armed with both the required items I want to install the new stalk.
I have searched and read up the various "how to remove the instrument clusters that are here and on Pelican's site, but cant see anything on how to actually replace the stalk in the cluster itself.
The removal of the cluster seems simple enough. Some screws, a few disconnects, a tab here and there and its out, but what then?
Anyone done this who can enlighten me before I pull my dash apart?
