Spring Cleaning on '97

Near 70 in Denver this weekend. Just finished with Zaino on this stock '97. I love this stuff! Removed the Bra, replaced painted caps. Next weekend Summer tires back on! Nothin better than cleaning the Boxster on a Spring afternoon with a cold one and March Madness on the radio!

It Looks Like A Hood Crest!!! Dude, Watch Out If You Have An Accident. It Will Be A Projectile When The Airbag Explodes.

yes, i would definitely remove that. it could cause a lot of damage god forbid something happens

you can actually paint the existing on on the wheels, looks much nicer

I love porsches, but not enough that I would want the crest tatooed on my forehead just incase the airbag deploys...just my 02 cents cuz you never know with some of the bad drivers out there, you can never be too carefull.... I love the guards red, that was actually the one of the colors I wanted when I bought my car was Black, Red or white.

Wow! You guys are VERY perceptive! I have at your suggestion considered two alternatives to the crest, one: reduce the size and go forward with the standard dumb 4 spoke wheel or Two: Double the size of the steering wheel and keep the crest!! (LOL) Anyway I appreciate the input and have removed the crest, my son loved it. I like the "paint it" suggestion. Think I'll try that. BTW - since I removed the crest my 0-60 times are improved - Thanks!!

I am NEVER going to post a pic on this forum again! I have just ordered a lead Porsche Crest with its own reversed airbag for my safety! You guys are brutal! But I love it! BTW it is 70 degrees in DEN today again - top is down!
