    Sucks to hear about the rust. But its a good thing that when its fixed, you have a really nice chassis right?

    Congarts on being a father! Sad to hear about the surprises on the car but it will be worth it in the end to have all that fixed and handled properly.

    Congrats! And that will be great to have the peace of mind knowing the car is fixed properly, even if it puts you behind.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, the rust is definitely a step backwards but absolutely will have peace of mind knowing that the chassis is sorted as best as possible.
    It wasn't the news I wanted, but it'll definitely be worth it in the long run... All the chassis reinforcements mean I can upgrade to a coil over setup without risk of cracking the chassis anywhere...

    I hit up Mike to see if H&R sell full kits for the 911's like KW finally started to do last year, haven't heard back just yet

    Yeah, I can't wait to see it welded up as well. Goal is to color match it to the car as well.

    Just got off the phone with the body shop. Looks like next week things finally are happening. Feel like I've been waiting for ages.
    Dropping the cage off first thing tomorrow morning at the body shop. Going to have a decent discussion about next steps and probably write a good sized check to the shop.

    Work has finally started on the 911. I'm going to attempt to get some photos in the very near future to update this thread with.
    The shop is down the street, but I just have to find the time to get down there during the working week.

    The other day I was trawling through the Pelican Parts for sale forum and stumbled across a set of wheels that are basically guaranteed to fit the narrow body.
    I pulled the trigger without even thinking, the deal was just too good to be true.



    $900 for these Euromeister 16x7 et 23.3 Fuchs. They aren't real Fuchs (they're a lot of dollars) but they're nicely refinished and came with brand new 195/50's on them.
    So basically I have a set of wheels I can actually run while I rebuild the RS' to fit. The other Fuchs are SC sizes and are just a little big for the rear... for now.
