New member. Just saying Hi!

I joined the club today (finally) and thought I’d just say hello.
 
My lovely black cab has just undergone a full engine rebuild, new clutch, oil pump, new roof and lots more. I’m looking forward to meeting up with R23 For the first time!
 
David.

    Welcome David!
     
    What year your cab? And who did the engine/other work for you?

    Welcome Gavin to the 964 part of the club, we're always interested in any history of car rebuilds etc so don't be shy.

    Hi there.
     
    Sorry for late reply, got a bit sidetracked with birthdays and stuff.  It's a 1990, rebuild by Dave Broughton.  He's done all the recent work for me including new hood, oil pump, clutch, engine rebuild, god the list goes on, there's loads I've asked him do.  Most of it was done the end of last year but it has crept into the beginning of this.  Right now he's just replacing a rear wheel bearing, cabin fan and fixing an off track window, hope to get the car back tomorrow, yay!
     
    It's my daily driver and has been for about 6 years.  It's a great car and hasn't given me any trouble since owning it, including a 3,000 mile trip around Europe year before last (including Stelvio pass!).  It just got to the point where I saved up enough pennies to take care of work that was due.
     
    Maybe see you guys soon so I can show it off!
     
    Next job is the interior, know where I can get some front seats reconditioned?

    Welcome to the club and it´s great that you do use the forum! I had a 1990 guards red cab in 1990 - it was a great car. There´s still a 964 in the stable today. So congrats, a great choice of wheels and hats off that you do use her as intended. Could you post a pic or two, please?
     
    Best,

    My 1st Porsche was a '93 Cab and it had been retrimmed by Southbound 6 months before I bought it. Not cheap.

    Depends where you live. You could post this question on your Region site and see what replies you get. Otherwise ask at an upmarket indy place and see what they recommend.
    If you're a handy man you can restore them yourself if that's all they need. Allow a day per seat and about £30 for creams and dye if needed.
    I can send you an article on how I restored a Club steering wheel. The same principles apply to any leather restoration.
    I know some good guys just north of Birmingham who are very knowledgable and feature on TV occasionally Car SOS.

    Thanks David, I’ll take a look at southbound. I need a bit more than some leather nourishment I fear. There’s a little stitching, broken drivers tilt release mechanism and generally old carpets.
     
    I’m thinking about completely changing the interior from black to tan. What do you think that might cost?

    I was under the impression that a complete interior retrim from Southbound runs to about £5K?

    I like the idea of tan but I don't know if I like it that much.  I guess it is a lot of work and really adds up.
     
    Hey Colin, your 964 has got just a few more miles on it than mine! I hope I can get another 150k out of it :-)

    Welcome to the club... having been renovating my 964 C2 Targa for the last 18 months it's always comforting to know that other owners are going through similar machinations!
