Carrara White 991 - Mod Diary

Hey Guys!


7/30/2013
Finalized my transaction. Did some research here and wanted to get springs and spacers right away.


8/5/2013
Got my Carrara White delivered Car looked low enough; wheel gap wasn't atrocious.





8/10/2013
Decided to hold off on springs and spacers. Instead went cosmetic route. Ordered:
Clear Reflectors - $62.71
Clear Tail Lights - $518.95
Black Tint Film - $9.95 (I originally wanted the smoked reflector pre-cut kit, but why spend more for more work. I discovered getting an entire roll is cheaper and also easier to install.)
X-ACTO Knife - $4.77 -
Amazon.com: X-ACTO Z Series #1 Knife with Cap (XZ3601): Office Products Amazon.com: X-ACTO Z Series #1 Knife with Cap (XZ3601): Office Products



8/13/2013
clear reflectors arrived and installed; followed this DIY on youtube:





8/15/2013
tint film arrived; followed eBay auction instructions; installed








8/20/2013
Got my Clear Tail Lights today!

I tried following this post for the installation. It didn't help me @[email protected] So here is my 991 Clear Tail Light Installation DIY ...it worked for me:

Unboxed the Tail Lights





Raise the Rear Spoiler. Pop up The Cap with a Flathead. Do the same for the right side.





You Will Need a T25 to Unscrew These Two TorX Screws





Not Enough Room for Regular ScrewDriver so I Assembled This Wrench Tool - It Did the Job





After You Unscrew Both Bolts, Just Pull Tail Light Towards You and It Comes Right Off





Repeat Process for Right Tail Light





All Set!






8/22/2013 - Polished Quad Tips ordered from Fabspeed. Got the best price direct from [email protected]


9/06/2013

Got my Fabspeed polished tips.

To take off my 991 stock tips, I used an E12 reverse torx socket. You can get a set here:
Amazon.com: Anytime Tools 11 pc FEMALE E-TORX (Star) SOCKET Set w/RAIL E4 - E20: Home & Kitchen Amazon.com: Anytime Tools 11 pc FEMALE E-TORX (Star) SOCKET Set w/RAIL E4 - E20: Home & Kitchen


Alternatively:

Here's the result:





10/13/2013

Saw Brooklyn991's thread here
Home Depot
Plastidip - $5.95 + tax
Painters Tape - $3.50 or something

eBay 911 Badge - waited for my eBay bucks to kick in and got this one from the UK because the other one in the U.S.had numbers individually taped so I'd had to line it up manually. Also the UK is cheaper.

My car is a duplicate of yours, plus I bought from PP. Who is your salesman?

Foscam cameras, I use the same, but my wap isn't in the garage.

You need some of these

Question for both of you as fellow Carrara White brothers: would you guys get Chrome or Black Chrome Quad Tips from Fabspeed? I am leaning towards Black Chrome but worried it'll just disappear under the black diffuser.

Are your wheels Platinum Satin as well? They look much darker and better on your car!

Ah nice, I was waiting to make use Amazon $5 of $25 Promotion. Thanks!

My Sales Rep is the one and only Keith Beitter, Internet Sales Manager. If Park Place keeps it up, I'm never getting a car locally ever again; the price difference is crazy.

Keith also provided great service

I think I'd go the regular chrome route, exactly because of the worry you expressed.

Yes they are Platinum Silk Gloss. Pic was taken inside, with lousy lighting. That's why they appear darker.

I love it! Highly recommended on Carrara White. A bit reminiscent of Aston Martin tail light.

Thanks!

That would set off the contrast nicely and also complement the rear tinted reflectors. But the look is a bit too aggressive for me haha.

Looking good. A set of black wheels with a polished lip would be the perfect complement.

Can you PM me with the % discount you received? I am going to order a lightly optioned (probably White!) 991 this winter if I can't find a good deal on a used one and would consider going outside Chicagoland if it made sense.

Beautiful car, needless to say....

Love the clears--- can you disclose the price? (sorry if you did and I missed it)

Edit: I have a 4s so the center would be red still- that would look odd wouldnt it??

Yeah, I don't think it would look good that way . . .

Sure I'll PM you. You should aim for last few days of the month, so it's coming up!

Hey Vic55,

I did post it but no biggie at all. Here it is again (click blue link): Clear Tail Lights - $518.95 shipping included from Florida

I would tint out the center red portion as well otherwise I think it would look a bit mismatched haha

I'm definitely thinking about a front spoiler lip but then I'd be tempted to lower the car. I really love not having to angle any more, I find myself going to a lot more places lmao. Previously, I'd avoid going to places if the entryway were too steep or if the streets had too many bumps/potholes. That's no way to live

As for the exhaust not sure about installing it on a leased car haha
