Thumbs up Thank you Forum.....

Hello Forum.
I purchased a 97 Box right before Turkey day. 40K with no records.
So with no records I decided that I better do any maint I could.
Short story here is this Forum Rocks!!!
From de-ambering, oil seperators, badge re-moval, plugs, de-snorkeling,etc....I found it here. So a giant Thank You to all Forum Members that make this possible.
Big time money saved. Go 986

Wow, I'm getting some clear corners and window tint.

Looks great, and will look even more under-the-radar on my blue car.

Nice ride, Porshaw. We were looking for Silver/Red, but settled for Silver/Black. Enjoy your Boxster. They're loads of fun. Welcome aboard.

Congrats on the purchase! Shes a beauty. So, is this your own lift/garage in the pic?! That would come in handy.....

by your choice in exterior and interiors I can see you are a HIGLY sophisticated and intelligent person who has many friends and even more admirers.

DJLomas, you can buy clear corners for your non-Litronic Boxster. They are about $40. I bought my set from Eagle Day for my Halogens and Brandywine for my Litronics when I upgraded. I've been saying to window the turn signals for years but I never thought it would stay on. I tinted my rear windscreen a yellow vermillion color to dial out the haze but the darn film blew off the car when I was going SLIGHTLY above the speed limit one day.
I think it would look a little better if the clear triangle was tinted as well, keeps the visual line smoother. much better than forking over the $1100 I did on Litronics. a set of hyper white bulbs would complete the look. I never got around to that though before I sold my Halogens.

p.s.
try the chrome door edge protectors for front intake grills. They sell them pre cut all over ebay but you can buy them at Pepboys for $8 and cut them with pliers yourself.

Ah yes the Garage. www.garagetown.com[/URL]
Bought the garage in July to store company equipment. One bay for the comapny, the other for the Boxs oil changes I suppose.

I never thought of tinting the corners, just wanted the amber gone. It's a good idea. I think it will finish it off. While I was wating for the new corners I painted the old amber ones, just to see. I thought I would throw a pic on for fun. So far the other tint is holding up fine. I was just crossing the ole fingers in the first place. So thank you again for the comments/suggestions..
