The (design) plan looks as follows...

Exterior back:

I need I need I need those fake grills

Interior center console - black mirror design:

iPhone (Plus size in landscape mode) + Phoenix Gold PSX 350W Bluetooth + "optional" Kenwood KSC-SW11 Sub (build into lower center console, already in place)

WIP

EDIT: JUST TRANSFERING SOME OLDER PICS I LIKE...
--------------------------------------------------------------------
spring sun...needs...chrome...WIP mods

chrome addiction...

WIP....slowly getting there...550-986 outlaw design
(still need to figure out a proper DRL solution)

...and i need that chrome windshield trim sooner or later, for sure. (EDIT: Have that now...just waiting to be installed with a new windshield with a "Grünkeil")
Those "Zunden" chrome bezels (which met my friends "dremel", "file" and "sand paper") are becoming extremely rare. I was lucky enough to find a pair in Japan!

that is what it`s meant for, glad you enjoy it, Bruce...

And the next mod done... (someone should laser cut the PORSCHE letters and illuminate it from inside, that could look cool)
well for now, that should do it for me
A metallic red spoiler wrapping (and ofc no bubbles in the wrapping, although seems like it in the jpeg, weird)

Upcoming inspection and TÜV:

Changed back to stock top and trunk lid/3rd brake light: 30mins, 2 people...even taking our time.
So once everything is in place and all moves internalized...15mins from Z-Top to stock.

Videos would take too long...as I would try win an Oscar for quality and drama.
But a quick n dirty oldschool photoshop should do it too for now, I hope

Class starts now: Bueller...Bueller...Bueller...

Lesson I learned: Manuals are always missing the important details
I tried to use as much professional help as possible
--> Sanding, primer, paint...
--> Attaching the windows...
...well and for the rest...blood sweat and tears, just kidding.

Do all the test/final fitting and adjustments BEFORE taking it to the paint shop.
Especially the trunk lid/hatch...that is the part, which takes by far the most time to adjust...I even modded the hinge holes for better fitment.
And don't give up on the cable/wire duct...it is impossible to get those wires through that plastic tube...i ripped it out...and fiddled the cables with little tricks through the duct...string&wire does the trick.
When it comes to "glue" ...the paint shop buddies refused to do those rubber seals... to be continued...

while the Boxster was on the lift today...we could see the IMS "sweating a bit".
The P-service guy was not worried about that...at all...he said not to panic, they gonna clean it and keep watching it. Keep calm and drive on...happens to our cars when they stand. OKAY...I did not panic...
Honestly...my Boxster sweated for 17 years now...I would panic, if it suddenly stopped doing it

Could be RMS. Mine started a weep, hanging drop last winter. Only happens after driving. Adds a nice patina to the garage floor

Bran, I probably won't get my top for a couple more days but I'm curious. How was the finish on yours when you got it? Was it primered smoothly or gelcoated? Alot of rough spots or was it decent?

Thanks
