Yep going on the 987. I have that all complete, GT3 front end, and the Getty tail going on. I’m waiting to put everything on when it gets wrapped (first week of July) and will post pictures when it’s all done. The louver is from a 370Z and we cut three inches out of the middle, plastic welded it, filled the gaps and painted it gloss black.So that’s going on the 987? Love to see it. I’ve always thought that rear sunken window was my least favorite part of the car
Or you can send me pics of that on before you get done? 🤣Yep going on the 987. I have that all complete, GT3 front end, and the Getty tail going on.

Don - Thought I'd follow up. Did you ever hear more about this from Foxwell?BTW-II - the reason I've been playing with this is I've finally gotten a person at Foxwell who is in contact with "engineering" - asking them where the PDK calibration routine is in the latest software for the 987/PDK. We've been swapping messages for several weeks now doing some diagnostics. Perhaps the problem is that that part of their software no longer recognizes that my car has PDK. On some VIN lookup sites it shows as a manual. Other ones it correctly shows as a PDK car. I hope to know more in a day or two.
I did and I can't say I was pleased. The entire thing took weeks of back and forth using Facebook Messenger. They'd ask for screen captures, I'd go hook it up and take them, then maybe 4 days later I'd get a response asking for more screen captures (and sometimes the SAME screen captures.)Don - Thought I'd follow up.

From the garage I have an indoor staircase that goes down to a basement dedicated work shop (A/C and heat) .. it’s so nice working on chit in a controlled environment.Yes. Amazing for DIY. Not sure I’m that talented. And that garage! . Where do you keep all your stuff!?

Way to overcome!Water pump was definitely the culprit. Perhaps I have a small drip from the expansion tank, but once I had the water pump in my hands it was a wobbly worn shaft of a thing. Surprised it wasn't noisy because I didn't hear it complaining. It may have let go quickly though since the leak was not there one day and was the next.
At almost exactly 50,000 miles I now believe that the common advice to change it around 45,000 must be well founded.
By the way, super easy access to the top 3 bolts from the front engine access in the cab. Same easy access to the 3 bottom bolts from underneath.
But the 7th one is buried in between and I had to stand with it to my back and reach up behind me with my left hand to get my fingertips on it. Took me a couple of minutes to figure out how.
As stated many times over the last year this is my first Porsche. I am so impressed with how it's designed and put together. While it definitely is an advantage to have a lift, if you do then the car is a joy to work on. Even for a 64 year old geezer.
