I thought I'd share a few pics with you of a current project which is almost completed now. A 968 Turbo S project car with some updated items as well...including a 993 headlight conversion. I know some of you guys on this forum have asked for that in the past so here you go...
All other headlight conversions (mainly US cars and one german) that I have seen (a red car, an amethyst metallic one and a yellow one) just had the headlight units rested in the original 968 wings. That looked quite frog-eyed and the angle of the headlight units is far too flat. In order to get a solution which looks like the factory would have produced it for the car, we had to "marry" the front part of a 993 wing to the 968 wing, heavily increase the angle at which the light unit sits in the wing (which ment moving down at the front and moving upwards at the rear) and subsequently build the wing up about 2cm's from the rear of the headlight unit on about 60cm's backwards exactly following the shape and design of the wing. Then, to finish it off perfectly, the new side line had to be carefully built up and integrated so that we have a perfect cross-breed of 968 and 993 wing:
Yesterday, I have done some final sanding and wet sanding and taken some pictures of the results which I think look absolutely stunning:
This modification does not only look updated, integrated and a lot more modern but - when built in FRP - will save about 15-20kg's
What do you guys think, is there enough interest to produce it in serial production?
