woow thanks for all the positive replies and help. i only want one thing too know: when im gonna paint it, i first need to sand it down, right? i would like 2 know what kind of sandpaper i need. when i sanded it down, i need to spray it ( i only have tamiya brush paint) do i need to buy a airbrush to?
http://files.automotiveforums.com/ga...g_airbrush.jpg

that kind of thing i mean, do i need to buy that to or isnt it really neccecary.

i dont know any more if im gonna change the exhaust because i like them alot. and ehh HOBBES, is it possible to take the rear taillights out? i want to make altezza( euro, clear) taillights on it too.

g-unitcustoms, i like those wheels on your cayenne!! i live in curacao( carribean) and its really hard to get some nice things here, so i hope they have some rims too, or else i maybe need to take my dubcity wheels on them!

thanks aghain for al the replies and keep posting!!

sorry for my bad english but im dutch so....

Re: porsche cayenne turbo

well, i've got it!! it looks pretty awesome, and tomorrow or saturday im going to buy some orange paint for it. i cant find anywhere some rims on this fucking island, so i think i need to take my dubcity escalade rims off it and swap it onto my cayenne. when im done with thje car, i try to make altezza lights.

my mom says this car was a bit expansive(it costed me 45 bucks(every scale car here is xpensive) and before i paint it, my mom says " you need too take one other scale car and make it a test car" well that's gonna be my 1997 porsche carrera.(im only going too paint it, it's got a few scratches already)

again sorry fort my bad english, im from orign from the netherlands

Because its a Cayenne Turbo and already had intercoolers (I just added chrome ones). I don't know if the GT engine is set up for turbos but I figured since the Cayenne already had intercoolers I may as well make them look nice.

The rims are from the replacement kits found at collectablediecast.com and ebay and painted black. They're mounted on eyebolts (front and back) so as to be adjustable when it comes to height.

I don't think anyone has turboed a gt yet. oh well, its just a matter of time before they do. It does look good.
