Nice work! I have done a 997 front end conversion on my 996 and was looking into the rear, where did you order the rear quarter panels from?

Been following this build.

You are doing a great job.

It is an outstanding looking car, I wonder how it would look with a speedster type windshield and chopped top??

Hello everyone, I have been quite busy lately and havent much time to devote to the car but I have finally put the new shocks in to give the car an agressive stance and trying to finish up the details so I can post more pics and get this car done in the very near future. I have another project porsche in the pipeline and as soon I am done with this current build I will start the other build, the new build will be a 99 Coupe that I will modify as well. Thank you all for the feedback and I will post new pictures very soon.

Hello, I actually fabricated those quarter panels myself and I am reproducing some for sale, if you are interested let me know and I will re-direct you to the site where I will start selling them and other parts I have fabricated for these cars. Thanks!!

Hello everyone, I have been trying to get back into finishing this project and have a few updates on the car. I have been cleaning up the rear specifically inside the engine compartment as when you modify something changes must be made. Had to move things around for everything to fit but I think I have it all cleaned up and ready to go. I also bought some new suspension to give the car a better stance and ride as well. I will update with a few photos soon!!!

There is a guy that shoe horned a MK1 GT3 engine into a narrowbody 996. You should connect w/ him and get that swap too.
