Is that the Adria?

Adria was a finalist for my my brother's Pre A Polo outlaw.

Thanks Louis! Some trim parts are showing up here and there. Should be able to start tackling the rest of the primer/roof work in another month.

Still on the to do list is have the front and rear glass removed, which might work out well next month as the Audi TT needs a new windshield so could kill 2 birds with one scone.

Nothing too crazy going on with the project so far this summer. Markus ordered up the rest of the paint and the new GT2 cluster and 90L fuel tank showed up, still many pieces away from getting both of those items to work fully.

Car is slated to head down late September to begin stripping the rest of the paint off and get the carbon roof put in. From there hopefully have it back late winter from paint to begin the mechanical work next year.

With the GT2 cluster I will be able to get rid of the PSM, however along with this process I am trying to chase down a GT2/3 ABS unit which is needed for the cluster as well. Since the larger 90L Cup tank will require new lines and coolant hoses might as well convert the rest of those to factory GT2 units.

That is a gorgeous color; looks like winter will be when enough stuff is in to start making serious headway.

Off to paint she goes, next time I see the 996 should be a entirely different color. Got her rolling again and packed up last night to bring to Werk996 so Markus can strip the rest of the black paint off and put the carbon roof in. From there it will be paint and then back to me in the spring hopefully.

Thanks!

Tuesdays drive to drop the car off went pretty well, we had to do some last minute repairs on the trailer wiring from it sitting for a couple years and replace a flat. Once we got rolling we took it easy and were able to drop it off without issue. Of course a quick wash of the trailer of all the organics growing from the lack of use didnt hurt.

Without a seat guiding it out of the trailer felt like a Panzer Commander experience.

On the way back we stopped to pick up my buddies E36 Unfinished Race car that needs some attention. Hopefully we are able to put the open spot of the 996 in the garage to use getting it operational again.

Little update from Markus, sent me this picture of the 2nd air box filler vent. The single filler was always a choke point with fresh air. According to MR dyno testing it was worth 10-15whp at ~80-100mph or so.

Here it is used on a MR built 996
