Surprisingly good for getting a hummer as your driving along too ...
The fact the seats are so low helps with the old "head bobbing up and down in the window" thing .

Looking very good! Given you appear to take your car to the eastside dealer and I live in Kirkland I'm still amazed we haven't crossed paths anywhere.

Haha, very nice! I'm a plastics resident right now and thinking about buying a 997. I figure I can spoil myself a little. Love your car, that's exactly what I'm thinking about getting

Also got some pics of the Techart Type IV wing from my body shop. Looks like it's going to need some serious TLC before it can be installed on my car.

Unhappy Too Bad~

Good news: I upgraded the brake lines to the Endless s/s lines and changed the brake fluids on my day off.

Bad news: The techart wing blade just kept blistering out after prep and paint. Props to Sharkwerks for taking excellent care of me. They took the wing back with grace. Let's see if techart will make it right.

Also a question re CG GT3 style center pipe, does it work with stock OEM mufflers or other aftermarket mufflers? I've got Tubi cat back (love the sound) and would like to keep them if I was to do the RS rear conversion, if I can.

Yes, it works with the stock mufflers, and should work with the Tubi too.

Cal56 is on a distinguished road
KEV,

Sweet looking ride. I love your taste in wheels (OZ and HRE). I think you mentioned in a previous post that you're using your older rims for winter duty. Were you referring to the OZ wheels? Do you still have the Carrera S II wheels? I'm looking for a set.

Ed

Just finished all 12 pages of this thread. All I can say is WOW! KEV, you really put it out there when it comes to mods, other mods, new/old ways to go. End result is super and the learning you provided all of us is invaluable.

Thanks for that and I hope you get to enjoy your C4S on the street and track. You've earned it in many ways!

Good luck, enjoy, and thanks again for taking us along on this journey.
