just want the bonnet back so i can nail the porsche badge on it

I was wondering. Are the pins of the badge long enough to go through both skins of the bonnet or are you gluing it?

Sorry for the late post!! but wow that is a fab car mate!!! im just getting into Covins, and am currently looking for one to work on!!

do you think you could send me over a few pics of your gorgeous car, mayb few finished ones and some in the midst of building it!

the reson i ask is im very interested in the bumpers and skirts you have on. Never seem them before. I assume there similar to the 959. Did you customise them yourself?

any infro you have will be great! thanks

Matt

hi matt, all the pics are on this gallery page. The bumpers are a turbo 2 kit you can get the kit from pro9 porsche for £650 mine came with the car although i have put the vents in the front and rear and made the lower lips on the front bumper. The side skirts have a hole in then for an air intake which ive run flexi pipe over the arch into the engine bay for a bit more air. hope this helps if you need any more info get in touch.cheers :smt001
