Yeah, but it looks like the (cute, beautiful) kitten is in the middle of licking itself so it fits the "cleaning" title of the thread. It's not all bad ....

OK, you've sorted the photos - but what did you buy of the bay of E to make the difference?

93 968 tip cabriolet, tahoe blue, cobalt blue leather interior, Promax 7100 chip, 80k miles
94 968 Coupe tip, Guards Red, Porsche grey cloth / leatherette interior, owned Nov 98 - July 2011
Completely original - no modifications from "as ordered".

All the bits needed so I didn't have to use the ones on my car Once I have swopped the parts over I will have them done then put them up for sale to recoup some money

Looks great.  I might be interested to buy the metal bits as a job lot once you've swapped them over, so then I can do the same thing!

Hi Andy,
Is that cadmium or yellow zinc? it looks brilliant!

yellow zinc mate trouble is I put a few bits on then didn't like how the rest looked so now the inlet manifolds off servo next and a good degunge so a bigger job than when I started. Getting all the nuts and bolts replated too
 
Cheers all for the comments

It's a slippery slope!
 
What have you cleaned those parts in? It's done a good job, whatever it is.

The nuts and bolts are new but need to be recoated to look the same as all the other stuff. I used a wire bush on a 4 inch mini grinder and don't I know it . Really thinking of taking the whole engine out How hard is it
