Seller Description

Parting ways with my project car that’s been a joy to work on and is mechanically sound, runs like a champ. I’ve done TONS of work on this car and there are a few things left to do that would be fun for the next owner and not required to enjoy driving as-is.

Depending on personal preference there’s some exterior work needed:

  1. Driver side door panel may need repainted (I attempted a repair and it’s not the greatest)
  2. Right side of trunk, same as above. I attempted a repair and not the greatest.

Both are only noticeable if paying attention, otherwise the exterior is in decent shape.

Interior work needed (I have all parts with the exception of a few clips)

  1. There are some trim pieces that will need to be reinstalled from the glove box reinforcement work
  2. The shift console is cracked around the AC switch and in need of replacement
  3. Passenger side seatbelt guide needs to be replaced
  4. Clock Light needs to be replaced
  5. Replace AC switch (AC on light not working)

I also have the parts required to start and finish the following:

Install Stainless Brake Caliper Pistons (ATE)
Replace Caliper Gaskets (OEM rebuild Kit)
Replace Cracked Shifter Console (OEM)
Replace Inner CV Joints (GKN Porsche)

Price reduced to $11,000 from $15,000 but no takers on Ebay

It has a lot of nice, new parts all over the car and should be fairly well sorted now. The price is still probably a little optimistic for the mileage and color combo.
