OK, I'll bite. What's the story on the red strip tail light?

I like the new generation of 911 rear led strip lights so i thought i would make my own, I’m almost certain that these led strip lights will filter down as standard fitment on the new gen 718

27600


So i thought i would have the first :geek:

$6 to make an hour to fit, factory look and finish as well !

Cheers Andrew

Sunday I strip washed, iron-x’d, clayed, and polished with some rupes DA’s with sonax perfect finish.

Thursday I had the front PPF’d with suntek ultra.

Today I installed the raceseng paddle extensions.
I've been thinking of adding the paddle extensions. Now that you've had a few days with them, what are your thoughts and can they be cumbersome? Thank you!

Hi Tree magnet
the paddle extensions work very well, I’ve not had any problems with them being cumbersome, they are particularly useful when driving spirited in the twisties.

cheers Andrew

Paddles on their way, more please Andrew on the LED strip ;)
Source, fitting, thank you, looks 👍

is it linked to the high level brake light on the boot lid and why are they not both on at same time anyway?

I changed out the mesh windscreen for one I picked up on eBay. The emblem is etched. Unfortunately the lettering isn't. But I do like the better rear visibility the Lexan provides vs the black mesh.

Totally off topic, but I would love to see you pull the truck out of it's stall given the distance between buildings. I'm sure you've mastered it, but neither of my two trucks would make that in a single motion.

The only stall the truck can make access comfortably is the center stall. I have to nose the truck into the far left corner of the driveway and back her in. It can be done in one motion if the wine at dinner wasn't that great :p The tougher part is getting on the brake before taking out a taillight :ROFLMAO: Unfortunately I cannot fit a full size bed or superduty in this garage.

Bedrooms and private spaces over the garage and public living spaces on the other side. My wood shop is accessed by the door next to the wood crib.

I gor the opportunity to upgrade my 718 Cayman GTS recently to a 991.1 GT3.

nothing wrong with the 718 but the GT3 was always a goal for me. So thankful tobe able to drive both cars.

I will miss driving the 718 Cayman GTS, but im looking forward to my new adventure with the GT3. 😄
