Heya!
New Chiffon White owner here....you know the one!

What can I say?
Drove it all the way back to Northeast Pennsylvania, some 500 miles, and...
- it was pretty hot outside ---> the air-conditioner kept me cool
- it started to rain heavily ---> the windshield wipers worked flawlessly, and not a drop of water made it inside
- it eventually got dark ---> and the lights performed as they should and I got home safe and sound, and in style!

MANY thanks to Joel and Mike for their hard work on this.
No, it's not a showroom perfect vehicle but that was clear from the listing (and price); there's plenty of things need sorting here and there, I know, I know....but who cares: WHAT A CAR!!! :rockon:

The transaction couldn't have gone smoother, and it was a real pleasure to meet Joel and Mike, oh, and as an added BONUS: I got to see almost all of Ohio's beautiful countryside! (inside joke :lol2: :roflmao: )

Will definitely have MANY questions....it's new to me, all this 928 stuff...

Congrats! :thumbup:

Never seen the car but know the sellers since many years (from Frenzy).
You can't go wrong with a car from those guys.
Joel and Mike are true honest 928 guys.

Enjoy!

Beautiful picture BTW.

Hello MAL!

Hmmm...beware buying 928's from 'Shyster & Shyster, Inc.'
It leads you down a path of insanity from which there is no return...

Wow, thanks all for the very kind words & welcome! :thumbup:

Unfortunately FRENZY doesn't look like it's going to pan out this year....other commitments/travel plans will come in the way sadly. :frown:
Such a shame, as I would have liked so meet all the 928s and their owners.

(bolding mine)

I think I know what you mean! :rolleyes: :tongue:

So, although I have far more pressing things to do, including more important things to take care of on the 928, I couldn't help myself, and cleaned up pretty much the ONLY rust spot in the engine bay.
No idea why I HAD to do this....just because it bothered me, I guess? :cool:

Need some help on this...
So, we knew she was sort of sitting weirdly: a bit low at the back and (what appeared to be slightly) high at the front. I took care of the back, and was wondering where exactly this is supposed to be measured? There's a flat spot somewhere from where to measure from the ground up, but where exactly? I did see online somewhere that the "poor man's" rudimentary way of measuring is from the ground to inside the fender; this is supposed to be 27" up front, which this is.
Also, does raising the back end, change the front?

This is what it looks like now; does this seem about right to you guys?

Rear.

Okay.
It's about 180mm front and 165mm in the back now. Understand it's supposed to be 170mm +- 10mm?
As I can't (easily) lower the front, I might raise the rear by 5mm to 10mm.

Specs are:
Front 180 +/- 10mm
Rear 173 +/- 10mm

So you're good at front but a bit low in the rear.

Will raise it a few mm in the back. Thanks for the info!
