Re: Porsche 993 GT2 Road version

My build speed was never fast, so also with this build, progress is slow. But it is progress though

I spend LOTS of time looking through pictures, but eventually I was able to create a new exhaust manifold. The main part was made using 2mm thick plastic card, but I also used parts of the original manifold. Also the turbo was reused, because it resembles the correct one quite well.



Then I dry-fitted the parts and I think the scale of the new parts is correct, so I can now connect the exhaust to the turbo. And of course, I have to do the same steps for the otherside of the engine.

Very nice work on the exhausts.
One of the reasons I stopped on some of my 993 builds was because I was finding it hard to get detailed images of things like the engine and exhausts. There are far more photos of aftermarket exhausts when I want bone stock ones!

Re: Porsche 993 GT2 Road version

Has it really been two years since my last update?

Time to continue this story.
I've been gradually been building up the exhaust piece by piece. Now both exhaust are done. Only some putty and sanding before I can start spraying the stainless steel.

Re: Porsche 993 GT2 Road version

Tonight I spayed the primer on the exhaust. If all is properly smooth then I can continue with the gloss black and stainless steel.


I replaced the wheels with ScaleProduction ones. But the rims are a bit thick and won't fit over the brake calipers. Therefore I milled out the rims.

Re: Porsche 993 GT2 Road version

Basecoating everything in gloss black.


After this I noticed I totally forgot to make the chrome end pieces. So a quick dive into my bits box.

In the end I used the top set, after removing the chrome and trimming the length a bit.

A day later I sprayed different tones of Alclad. The exhaust in stainless steel. But for some reason it turned out cr*p. And on this pictures it is even worse.

So I guess I will be redoing this part.

The rims were spayed in chrome and the inserts in Porsche slate gray from Zero Paints.



The dry-fit looks nice already.

Until next time

Re: Porsche 993 GT2 Road version

Also it's a pity you couldn't make up the exhaust sets to sell. I'd buy a few. I'll probably end up using the kit parts on my RWB builds. Don't have time to make these I don't think.

I had thought of resin casting the exhaust; but it would be made up of many parts because of the shape. And a high risk of air bubbles since I don't have a pressure chamber.
Perhaps if my experience grows with resin casting I'll do it again in the future. I think I need another set for another gt2 variant.
