    @WC1 Thank You.

    @traverhutchins Traver - Thanks for reminding me. Following our conversation this AM I went back to PCAR to discuss (PCAR included some of the detail in the listing, including this item, off of the build sheet which can be referenced off the a sticker on the frunk lid). PCAR confirmed that the car does have the Technic package, although the Technic package is not an auxiliary engine gauge as you thought it might be. Apparently the Technic package is a group of options that includes xenon headlights, headlight washers and an upgraded radio.

    Pls provide any detail on specifics related to the Technic package if that is included.

    @WC1 ,ROGER COVID19 garage conversion. Let me know if we can speak via phone when convenient to you.

  • WC1 (seller) 5 days, 9 hoursago

    @911NT - Car spends the entire winter plugged into a trickle charger in garage. With COVID, my garage is going to transform into a gym for the winter.

  • 911NT (registered bidder) 5 days, 9 hoursago

    @WC1 , THANKS for the prompt response. Why are you selling if not too personal?

  • WC1 (seller) 5 days, 9 hoursago

    @911NT - Checking with the shop that did the work to try and get a definitive answer but in the interim I would assume that part was not replaced. The top did/does go up and down fine. It was the rear window starting to de-laminate from the roof that resulted in the replacement.

    When you replaced the convertible top did you replace the hydralic lifts at that time?

    @WC1 Thanks for the upload. Are you able to show the car in the next few days? I'm nearby.

    IMS details should be up now. Had it changed by a performance shop in MI where the car was located before I drove it home. At the time they inspected the old bearing for wear and found none. Replaced it at that time.

    Also - I don't see any mention in the description about the windshield washer. It technically works, but the pump has leaked since I have owned the car. Local Porsche shop (SST in Danbury) told me its the washer pump seals. I never fixed since I don't use. Was waiting for something to require work in that area but the occasion never arose.

    Sending to PCar now ... it should have been i the orig pic set.

  • bkspeed 1 week, 1 dayago

    Can you upload the service records for the IMS, clutch, and RMS?
