    Steel RS flares

    Does anyone do a good replica copy of the steel 73RS touring rear guards (the piece welded in)?

    I imagine you mean the fender flare.

    The PET shows them as 911.503.607.00(L) and 911.503.608.00(R) and we have managed to collect a a couple of pairs of good used parts.

    Porsche currently list these parts as 911.503. 607.03-GRV and 911.503.608.03-GRV and these are shown on the Pelican Parts website as an 8" flare to suit an SC or an RS.

    Theye are listed by Pelican as OEM parts and they show two photographs.

    The Left Hand photograph uses a Restoration Design picture and the Right Hand picture looks more like an SC profile than an RS.

    The Restoration Design Website shows a similar part but again is defined as an SC or RS part.

    I tried to order these flares from my OPC using the original RS part number and they accepted my order. I was very pleased.

    The next day the Parts Manager called and advised that when they placed the order on Germany the system automatically updated to the 03-GRV number.

    He had realised we wanted the original RS weld-in part and was worried about the change in number.

    As these were special order parts they would not be returnable if incorrect so I cancelled the order.

    We have never managed to find out exactly what Porsche are producing so it is a bit of a muddle.

    In the meantime we have converted three sets of SC arches to and RS profile by making a small replacement egde using an Eckold Piccolo and then cut off the original SC profile and spot welded in the new piece.

    We could make more if there is any interest but in the meantime it would be good to fully identify the new Porsche panel.

    Sorry to be long winded but at $600-ish each it is worth being careful.

    When you order from Porsche it is a toss up as to what you will get. About 9 Mo. ago my son had a blow out on his '86 Targa and we ordered a new flair to replace the damage. We got a RS profile flair rather that a Carrera profile. Re-ordered and got the correct part, both with same part #.

    It seems the youngsters at the factory are not aware of the difference between RS and SC/Carrera profile, and no one has pointed it out to them.

    So much for keeping history alive at the Factory.

    In case it helps we have ordered and fitted several sets of complete RS rear arches (for factory 73 RSs in for restoration), new from Porsche and they are correct. As Chris mentions just the flares are available from Porsche and being that they make correct full arches I suspect the flares are also correct.
