the ultimate backdate ...

so, this has happened ...

Home

should work for our cars if it works for a 996. looks like a 997 front end conversion is required to make it work, however (fenders, hood, headlights).

Looks well done. More money than an 986 is worth to do though I would bet.

Not my cup of tea but I give them a lot of credit for actually doing something!

If you do your own work and have a rear ended 997 and a 986 that's been hit in the front, why not? If I were to do any custom modifications to my 986, it would be to the interior.
