Here you go. Like the wheels too but they are going away as soon as I get my new ones back from getting restored. ��

As soon as I get the 19s, the machined ones, back from restoration next week and I'm sure they are good I'm gonna sell the 18s. They are very straight and have new tires.
They came on my car when new.

I really like the new Latvian vents. I took a look at their eBay ad - is their price for one side or both sides? Just wondering since they have prices for multiple purchases and don't specifically say. Also, their ad says to use an adhesive to install them. Is that what you did or do they install with the factory screw?

That price is for both. I used 3M tape around the inside edge and drilled a hole for the screw.
Not hard really. 🙂

Thanks, they look great. My budget is dedicated to an engine rebuild this year!

Do they install over the originals? Or do you remove them?

You remove the originals and replace.

Maybe you've answered this somewhere and I missed it, but ... why not just get a Cayman?

Yup. The most versatile Porsche ever built, the 986. Boxster-Spyder-Cayman
And the Cayman is a basically 987...exterior looks are great, but the 987 interior was never my cup of tea.

The vents look great btw.
What are those lines on your trunk? looks interesting.

That's what's left of the 911 vents. I'm not done with that yet. Covering up some mistakes.
