Porsche 911 C2 Cab...progress

I've been working on this for a while.
My first project of the new year.
Fujimi Porsche 911 C2 Cabrolet... from what I know a 1990 model.
Just some detail shots...a bit of a tease.

The project was stalled while I was working on the Decals for the calipers.

All that and you can almost see them.


A little goof...
I trimmed the speaker grills so the top would fit better and completely forget that they would show if I put on the 'up-top'.

More in a few days

Re: Porsche 911 C2 Cab...progress

Its a nice begining, but I would like to see more pictures.. at least the body pics... Thos wheels are a strange choice for the Porsche... they remind me of OZ superleggra or Carlsson multispoke.. both are a "touring" wheel..more for small 4 door sedans than a sports car.. but the caliper looks real good!

A little background...
I bought the kit off the sale table just for the wheels, those are going into another project.
SO, I borrowed a set of XS-Tuning wheels from another project.
The wheels and brakes are already on the car, so that's not going to change, but I may put some taller tires on.

Here's a beauty shot...

One that shows the true color...

And one that shows my current project.
Fitting the warped Up-top.

More in a couple of days...

I completely agree, and disagree. As you can plainly see this is no sports car, i.e. the backseat. Sports car is defined by a two door, two seater coupe/drop top.

Re: Porsche 911 C2 Cab...progress

wow.. the color looks very nice, and that top... stunning. Is that an actual "cloth" top?

85_SR5 - Well.. you certainly have your parameters of considering what a "sports car" is, but I would respectfully point out that Porsche is as pure bred of a sports car as anything that ever came out of the factory. If your analysis of a "sports car" held true than Mazda Miata, would be considered a "sports car"

Re: Re: Porsche 911 C2 Cab...progress

It is. A miata, tho underpowered, slow, and a girls car(imo, no offense to those who own that are guys). Porsches are sports cars, well, those with 2 seats. I just pointing out, because my insurance claims any 2door, 2seater car from the factory is a sports car. That's why I don't own a vette

Re: Porsche 911 C2 Cab...progress

hehe, I understand.

Although I also work as a bad faith litigator for a major US insurance corporation and I assure you that you rate for a vetter and a miata is going to be quite different regardless of "two door/two seat" clafficiation.. there are a number of other parameters.

Re: Re: Porsche 911 C2 Cab...progress

Yes, I'm aware of that. I could own a turbo miata with no problems insurance wise. I just wanted to point out this fact: there's a 1984 porsche wrecked, but running 2dr/2seater car, 5spd. FR. I called the insurance company about it before I got the SR5, they gave me a qoute that was, well more than I care to spare. I also found an 87 porsche convertible, owner never replaced the torn shreded top, I think the model was different becuase it had a back seat, 2dr/4seater. but the Tq/HP ratings were the same. The qoute I recieved on that car was 250-300 usd cheaper than the 84'. I asked why is was much cheaper, my agent said the droptop was classified as a sports coupe, and the other a sports car, although they came with the same power ratings, and same engine/transmission. Anyway, back on the subject, what exactly is wrong with the top for the porsche? My Z8 came with the clear soft top, and the ridges to show where the supports where, out came the 60 grit, sanded the roof smooth, all the way up to 1000 grit. Masked off the molded in rear window and painted the same as the body, color wise. and puff, a hardtop Z8!

The warped Up-top required more than a little work with hot water.

I added a strip of styrene across the front edge to make it a little longer.

You can see where I cracked the top trying to get the warp out of it.

I decided that the interior needs every bit of detail I can squeeze in.
A vert. just begs for a top notch interior. So...

I drilled out the instruments...

and fit the decal from behind.

More to come.

No new pix for a while...
The dash and interior jumped in the CSC tank. I managed to get a ton of crud in the paint.
The body is curing and I'm just working on lenses and such.

This one has been parked for a while...

Here's a shot of the detailed dash, with key and remote.

the 'glass' over the gauges does'nt show-up in the picture.

I'll put more pix up as I put the interior together this weekend.

Now off to work on real cars for the rest of the day...lol
