Talking

Today, when I stopped by the shop, I saw that the GT-3 Rocker Panels were installed as well as the new headlights. Pretty sure I'll be picking her up on Friday!





Love the New LED Headlights!

hi drbodzin.
your car looks great, and i'm happy to see you will be able to drive it soon.
my plan is to do the same in the near future, so i'm accumulating some parts now.
i have the turbo bumper on the way, and also purchased the rear defuser from G-tech (they have a promotion now so i got it for 305$ shipped, if you are interested)
was wondering where did you get the side skirts?

Hi Meir,

I purchased the Front Bumber and Side Skirts from Precision Porsche in Los Angeles.

I had upgraded my rear bumper to a later OEM version some time ago. So I left it alone.

Cool These are the BEFORE shots

So, I got her home and she's beautiful. But Before I post the new pictures, here's some of her "before" shots I took before bringing her to Speed Zone Paint.

The Paint & Body are COMPLETE!

Well, she finally got finished. After three months at Speed Zone Paint & Body, she's a thing of beauty.

What do you all think of her?

I have been looking at those also. Are they 18's or 19's? Which tires? And how is the ride compared to the stock rims/tires?

Wow is right. Wow. Yeah, about the wheels and stance... that's the look I'm shooting for. They look bigger than 18... is that just because of the stance or are those 19?

You know. I usually HATE the overly done and overly modded boxsters. But that after pic definitely made me say "damn" out loud here at work.

Love that lip. Not a huge fan of the hood, those sideskirts are fantastic, and the headlights/side mirror erase years off the car.

Good job!

They're 19's. The ride is great. I just put them on yesterday and took her for about a 20 mile drive. They handled great!

They're 19's and the car is lowered 1" with Eibach springs.

Thanks! Glad you don't think its over done. I also hate "blinged out, over-modified". Just really clean lines and curves. That's why the striping is ghosted - understated, yet custom. That Lip you love is the Porsche OEM GT-2 Lip.
