Re: Porsche 911 SCRS

I like the wheels, don't care for the tires but haven't been able to find a replacement yet.

Re: Porsche 911 SCRS

  • The rear wheels appear to be cast with a domed shaped grease cap which would not be present at the rear hubs so I drilled it out.
  • Opened the torsion bar access in the rear fender just ahead of the rear wheels – Porsche race cars almost never have these covers in place
  • Subtly re-shaped the rear wheel opening - thought they were too flat at the top
  • Working on the tires to soften the square edge of the tread surface and knock down the sheen

Re: Porsche 911 SCRS

Looks good. Didn't even notice wheel arch thing until you pointed it out - good eye!
