Heres a few details on the work carried out
This porsche i have owned since april 2007 and like many of you have put considerable time and money into getting it to the way it looks now. My Insurance have given me a guaranteed value of £7000
It comes with original service history with 17 stamps recorded and i have all mot's from 2003.
It last Mot was 4 weeks ago and passed with flying colours. Its running so smooth that the c/o test recorded at 0.347 where the max pass is 4.5.
The car has changed considerably since i bought it including a total respray 2 years ago costing £1850.
The car was originally was Porsche Sapphire silver/gray and as you can see from the pics it has been repainted in Lamborghini Nacre Pearl Orange.
I have about 145 photos of the whole job from strip down, to primer and then the final painting to the rebuild.This was all done correctly with doors and all glass removed.



When i first bought the car it was a 1986 2.5 and i have since installed the 3.0ltr s2 twin cam 16v engine /ecu/ loom / and type aos gearbox and exhaust system. I still have the original engine.

Complete s2 front end including bumper/lamps and nose cone and all the correct wiring looms.

Tear drop mirrors also fitted as you can see in the pics.

Porsche 968 side skirts and rear bridge spoiler have been bonded on to complete the transformation.
I also have pics before i bonded the skirts on to show that the sills were perfect. The reason i choose to bond them instead of screws is because i did not want to drill into any of the body work.

Im also waiting for the rear under spoiler to come back from the painter which i should have this week.

Last year i had the seats custom trimmed in Rolls royce cream and Lamborghini orange leather at a cost of just under £1000. Both seats are electric.

Complete dashboard and door cars were replaced to match the colour of the new seats.

This year i have just finished replacing all the carpets. They are all brand new which i had shipped from America for £700.

The Alloys are 17" Genuine Boxster S and are fitted on Jasmine Porsche 32mm bolt on spacers to get the correct offset.

Tyres are all new and matching. Fronts are Falken 215/50/17 and Rears are Falken 255/40/17.



Also fitted in the centre console is a 7" full touch screen sat nav system. This also is a blu tooth hands free phone system and dvd player.
This also has a built in digital view tv tunner.
Ipod and usb connections.
Rear view camera can also be connected to it aswell.

Remote pager alarm system is also fitted and operates the central locking.
There is also a remote start module that goes with the alarm but i never had a need to fit.



All electrics are working( sunroof,windows,seats, central locking and the "clock" which always fails in these cars).
Sunroof is removable from the car and sits in the boot section



I have done so much to this car that its hard to list so this is just a few details.

I do have a folder full of what's been done.

Welcome to the club :smt012

I think you might be a bit crazy :smt017 :smt016 :smt016

By that i mean going from a fully sorted 944 to a Covin :lmao :lmao .


If i may make a suggestion, buy the Covin first and drive it around for a while
and then decide whether to sell the 944 :smt012

You could well be in for a shock when you drive a Covin :lmao :smt016

Hopefully i can get a drive of this one in the morning.
From what i have seen here and looking elsewhere a fully finnished covin can be just as nice as what ive done.
I think a nice car is what puts a smile on your face when you get up in the morning and look at whats on your drive way.
Its how it makes you feel when you are driving down the road.
I think those are the most important things about owning a car.

Depending on what you want from the covin will make your mind up, everyone is different,wether its an exact replica or like mine which is what i want mine to be,some just need tinkering with or others need total rebuilds. personaly i like mine untouched so i can put my mark on it, also some of us go over the top :lmao :lmao mines the blue devil :smt012

Hi, i took a good look at your car in the gallery and very nice it is.
Maybe i havnt been very clear on what in looking for.
Im not in the position to do rebuilds any more as i dont have the space and also my back cant take it.
Im looking for a decent road going wide body replica.
I am not so blinkered that i dont expect to have do some work.
But a good Body, good chassis(covin) and a decent engine is what im after.
