    Good question! They're at the upholstery shop being done in leather, they were in vinyl before and had been repaired poorly. Will be back in the car soon.

    Look forward to seeing them in the car.

    IMHO, the best "Sport Seat" from the era was made from '74-'80. They reshaped the bottom bolsters in '81 and also re-designed the side bolsters. Easier ingress-egress.

    Photo shows why the '74-'80 are the tightest fitting of anything from '74-'89. When you're in, you are (locked) IN.

    This is just a question, not a critique, being that you have a more powerful engine in your car why no need for a duck tail spoiler?

    I like "under the radar". My '74 isn't at all stock. It just looks like it.

    Hey, Macroni, why donít we post photos over here....

    Truth is, I took very few photos, was too busy driving over 8 or 9 passes, with the highlight being independence pass, with very light traffic, it was simply stellar.

    The reason I asked about the rear spoiler is based on Porsche added the ducktail spoiler for a reason (performance), which then grew to a whale tail. These tails were not for show they served a purpose/function. I will admit that I do like the clean tear drop lines of your car, I just wanted to know your though process of not adding one with the more powerful engine.

    To sithot, I don't think you're under the radar with CARRERA written large on both sides of the car

    Mainly wanted to stick with all of the original steel body panels (exception being the steel Carrera flares welded on) in this restoration and my general preference is for 911s w/o a rear wing e.g. my RS America with the wing removed. Also an interesting chart from the Carrera RS book by Thomas Gruber and Georg Konradsheim. Front and rear wing + 4.5 kph or 2.79 mph.
