My "face lifted" 987

I just installed SY center console and I thought I'd share some pictures of my "face lifted" 987. I'm very happy with the console, factory like quality + exact color match!

Thanks, guys.

The console was done by exotic-toys in FL.
Tony is a great person to deal with, offering core exchange too.
I wish he is in CA!

I am starting to like the Chrome Boxster badge.... I may have to get the
Chrome package for my deck lid.
Nice Job!

Jinijazz, I love the painted side vents! But, I like a more monochromatic look. Yours looks great either way.

Thanks dcporsche99,
Yep yep yep. ebay. I actually saw his work prior to my order, and talked to several people who ordered from him. He is one of the few ebay sellers who I highly recommend!

Sweet ride, boy does it look clean... I like the yellow color a lot, how hard is that color to keep clean?

looks great! I have to agree on the vents....with the roll bars, console, and lap belts you almost have to tie them in yellow, I had the same idea to paint my shifter CW but thought it might just get too dirty...

Hmmm looks like painted side vents is the way to go...
Anyone has close up picture? bmussatti?

edevlin, the shifter is leather, not painted.
I use Lexol cleaner & protector, so far so good.

super66, I thought you changed your wheels, no?

bmuss, was that clear plastic fender cover yellowish like that from the begining, or it got like that with time? Just remembered that the guy who installed my clear bra said clear covers were the toughest to keep un-noticable over white.
