Riviera Blue Boxster S

Hello Everybody!
Im a Porsche fan from Finland.
First I would like to apologize for my bad language. I hope you understand me..
Here is a little story about my Boxster!
I have 2000 model 3.2l with little modifications.

I got my car from Germany at 2013.
First i think that the car is ok without any modifications but then i realise that i want something different!

Let the pictures speak for themselves:

First day and first pic in Netherlands. Just drive thru visit.


First upgrade, new tail lights and cayman spoiler.


Then it was time to upgrade wheels and tires. I got IA GT3 wheels 19" 9,5" in every corner. Here is also my friends Box and one of my old project car.


That was the look at the first summer.
I also lowered the car littlebit because i like to go low..
So after summer i put my car to garage because there is too much snow to drive car like this..

About a month ago i decided to do something different.
Now the whole car is the project!


New exhaust fitted at first. Then disassemble the whole car.


preparation for paint


I also inserted the new GT3 sideskirts


After the preparation its time to paint first layers.
Then i make the big decision - i chose the Riviera blue color! One of the best decision of the whole project!


After first layers we sand down the whole car again for better finish.

--- Continue..

I also do the retrofit modification


Painted everything in black. I think its much better in black.


Then sand down the lens for new layers of lacquer


After few days its time to add new layers of shiny lacquer.
I also do darker lacquer for outlines of the lens.


Couple days later- its time to start assemble the car.


Its almost ready. In that moment I still dont have the new front bumper..
Retrofitted lights are also ready!


This is what it looks like now.
Today I also received new GT3 front bumper!
I had still lot of work - interior - new speakers - front bumper..

Riviera Blue has to be one of the best Porsche colors!

Nice. Is it a genuine cayman spoiler or a replica one?

Spoiler is aftermarket part so it is replica, but it fits perfectly!

This one is Mexico Blue....I'd say Jaber's car looks more Mexico than Riv.....but the lighting plays a role:
