My 997TT coming along.

I figured what the hell...was a good day to pick up the car from the body shop and felt like sharing.

Had a 996 C2 many eons ago, sold it, and have always wanted back into the Porsche family. So I picked up an '07TT and figured to have some fun with it.

First step is nearly done which was all cosmetics. Still to add is the front bumper grill and carbon air intake vent (a la GT2RS). Not sure when this will be done since parts are back ordered. I also wanted to point out and "thank" Stan over at Santa Monica Bodycraft. All the work you see here was done by him and his crew.

Next week car will go for suspension setup (coilovers, etc.)

Then after that, performance.

Yea...I did things backwards.

Here are some pics for now:<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

Thanks. The color is Slate Gray.

I don't think I would have bought the car on the spot if it wasn't for this color. Once I saw it, I just had to have it.

Yes. It is a Rotec splitter, a replica of Techart but made
of carbon.

Much cheaper than Techart as well.
