Rescue: 87 924S from NY

So is a running, driving car really a rescue?  Yes and no.  In this case, the car showed well with decent paint and interior, and seemed to run well.  The bottom, however, was another story.  That story unfolded on the lift.

Front Door Speakers That Fit…

Our journey started with the acquisition of our mint 1988 924S Special Edition.  While the car is in great original condition including the original functioning Blaupunkt Sebring cassette radio, the front speakers weren’t working.  Upon further investigation, the front speakers were completely deteriorated – the paper cone was no longer connected to the outside edge of the speaker. Replacement was needed to restore the cassette/radio to its former glory.  

COVID-19 and Your Porsche

So what are we to do in the 924S944.com world?  We may be in self-inflicted quarantine at home because there is no where to go and nothing to do.  But remember that there are auto parts available online with delivery to your door.  So here are some suggestions.

Making a New Shop

About thirty years ago I built a shop/garage at another house and made a huge mistake – eight foot walls.  Putting in a lift was impossible, so working on jack stands was the order of the day.

Door Handles…

Once the two connectors are loose, carefully manipulate the handle to remove it from the door.  This is best achieved by rotating the handle carefully DOWN so that the forward end of the handle is facing the ground, then carefully manipulating the inside mechanisms through the hole in the door skin.  Slowly remove the handle without using a lot of force.

Mission Creep

Those of us who work with Porsches know all about Mission Creep.  You start a repair, upgrade or other job and before you know it, you are attempting a lot more than you originally thought.
