Ditto on the wheels… wow. Those really are nice looking.

 

 

BTW: I worked for Porsche in the late 70's - early 80's. It's hard to tell from the box art, but Porsche had a very light steel color that had a blue-ish tint to it, and a very light blue metallic. So either-or would be a nice choice (I prefer the steel).

 

 

Porsche had a paint to sample code e.g. they would paint a 911 any color you wanted. They had a handful of standard colors - premium colors and paint to sample.

I have not measured them but yeah I think they are 16 inch, but could be 15s.  The rims are not the big issue. Its the tires aspect ratio is too sort for vintage Porsches so they don't fill the wheel wells up like they should and some of the bottom detail hangs down too far. Makes the kit a little weird. It looks nice painted up silver, but FWIW most all the suspension parts are black on these cars, and on some cars the cross members were aluminum some where steel. Trans mount sway bars spring plates, and frt control arms are always black. Most likely the rear drop arms would be steel and black. Could be aluminum, they switched around in these 1980s years. Not to be picky or anything. It's fine the way it is.

Yup, I am not bitter about it. doodoo happens. Moving on now. I have a wonderful girl friend (not the reason for the divorce she came along after the drama) and I my other stuff is mostly intact. It was a learning experience for sure, but I am feeling better than ever. I am not even mad she is gone, but why she had to distroy everything. Just no reason for that.

 

I guess I need to get a new camera now too, :)
