Hard Top SpinLocks

Just trying to find this cheaper than Amazon's 100 Dollar Price Tag. Someone help! lol. Porsche wants 163ea. IDK if they are made of Gold, Diamonds or melted Cubits but thats just outrageous. Was supposed to pickup the top out of town this week but looks like that wont happen. LMK 5052618161

4.5 years ago I paid 90 for 2 spin locks, 150 for mesh rollbar PLASTIC windscreen! 75 for used visor and the list goes on. So here is the thing.... buy the new ones for a hundred way before you go because they are tricky to install as with alot of things on a 986. I tried for a long time before taking it to an indy who was familiar with install and it still took 10 minutes? per side. Good luck and dont let the hardtop get away.

Shouldn't be too bad. I have all the tools. Just... I was hoping Quality Porsche Parts would hit me up already since they are local to me, and they have a bunch of the brackets missing the plastic covers so maybe they have the spinlocks. If not I'm prob just gonna order Amazon, I found them for 90 on some other place but that place doesn't look too legit. Amazon for 110.

Or at least someone local that would lemme borrow theirs haha. Just so I can go get it, I'm 100 short for the top right now. So that means total I'm like 220 short.

I'm also waiting to hear back from the guy with the top, unsure if he has them.

I bet there's a quite a few boxsters running around with them on and the owner doesn't even know. I've seen a few adds on craigslist of people selling their hardtop because they sold their boxster and don't need the hardtop anymore. I bet a lot of them left the spinlocks in the boxster when they sold their car.


Just sent you a PM about the stuff you were looking for.
