Nice.

(Also I bought and successfully wrapped the B-Pillar and the A-Pillars, the latter in a darker grey like the outer gauge cluster; but apparently for the 996.2 Porsche redesigned all those parts so the ones I bought and spent hours preparing didn't fit!)

(This surprisingly did smooth throttle response from 5-6k a bit)

Now it's still burbly burbly below 2l but howls when you get on it past 4k or so.


Also I put better headlight bulbs in it.






And yellow foglight bulbs.


Anything else?

First all of the fuel lines had to be replaced, and it took me forever to fix all of the things that they screwed up in the process of changing them (still not quite done until I can get help to pull the rear bumper off).

Now I have a seat that provides significantly more lateral support, gets your head further from the roof, provides much better neck support and is much more comfortable on your back. The best seats I've ever sat in in anything.

All controlled by the much more logical seat controls from the 1994+ cars.


(I still need to figure out how to wire the bolstering to the seat switches since it doesn't work the same way).

(Also I built another gaming chair)

But this color combo is terrible, and I'll need to get these seats reupholstered so...





What about red?

Going along nicely.



And that's where she stands. Interior partially converted to the previous, vastly superior seat design. Interior partially converted to Flame Red, like the first C4 I drove was. Front end partially damaged and awaiting repair. Clutch partially fried and needing replacement.



This is the end goal:

sc0514-184412_4@2x.jpg


Except with these doors (hopefully):

4-1605288584300@2x.jpg


Assuming I can successfully paint the doors and don't need to buy a used set of Flame Red 1993 doors (there is a set on eBay right now, so I have a safety valve of sorts at least).


At this point I'm already approaching saturation of things I can change relatively easily without spending a ton of money (carpet, new seat covers).


(Well, beyond the not-insubstantial money I already spent on the seats that were trashed and which I will in the end barely use any parts from)



I also lowered the rear about an inch and got a new slightly stiffer front spring that I modified to lower the front. Need a lift to change it out though.










No I still don't think I can get rid of the crappy Buick steering wheel for the earlier one.

Love the micro suede interior mods. Might have to steal that for my center bezel on my 986...though I'm not sure what color. Where did you get the shifter from? I've been considering upgrading mine.

It was a standard 997 shifter. Was like a 130 bucks. Throws are only slightly shorter but it has a snick quality like a decent Honda box now. It also, most importantly, eliminates that horrible 1 -> 2 vagueness. I know I'm used to a shifter that has throws about 3 inches long but Porsche should have been embarassed by the shift feel in the 996.

Ryoko did it for me too. Middle school was weird. At least the tail thing didn't stick with me.

BORING.




GM, for the only C4 that's actually worth anything, trotted this out for their red interior option of the big send off of the generation? Is this some sort of lame-ass C6 red colored interior (not: This hubris will bite me in the ass later)?

It's a long way from the glory days...


But wait. Ryoko is Admiral Blue Metallic. Ryoko has a 6 speed. Ryoko has 315 rear tires on black ZR1 wheels. Ryoko was repaired and then repainted like a 1996 model year:

Instead of how she was originally painted:

Okay. Have to buy the earlier door panels I guess, since red ones of the final style don't outside of NOS ($700 per side). Fine. And hey, they are way higher quality than the... molded piece of hard vinyl that they went to in 1994 anyway; with a difference even more stark than the awful 1994 dashboard and the cool 1993 one.




They're padded.


They're carpeted.


They're multipiece.


They are actually adhered to the door with more than nylon fasteners, friction and a prayer.


The switches actually fit in them (because apparently redesigning a door card to a obscenely cheaper design to cut costs on your flagship car and then making it so the carryover switchgear fits is a step too far for 90s GM).

Oh. Immediately after I solved the question of how to adapt the previous seats to the later seat controls, I fried the controller under the passenger seat? Oh. They are basically unobtainium.

Well, I... uh... managed to make them fit. They're not the correct red, and they honestly simply are not as good as the C4 seats, but I can work with these. I can change the covers later. Maybe try and go to the later C6 seat design; which are supposed to be much more supportive:

Used-2012-CHEVROLET-CORVETTE-GRAND-SPORT.jpg


Since the lower frames are much more self-contained than C4 seats, maybe I can even try to mount C4 seats to those frames. Who knows. They are also much quieter, much faster and one of my motors was failing anyway. And hey, they're the sport seats. That means they are heated! I'm sure I can figure out how to wire them! And red seatbelts! And red handbrake cover! Coming right along!




p2_b6e5454031c8a34100c750d03227b8d1dbd41e2a.png

What the is this wiring diagram? Why the hell is the wiring nothing like the equivalents from contemporary heated seats from other GM cars? Why is the switch 4 inches deep with a harness that's impossible to mount?

The hell with it. I'll do aftermarket.

Since I'm gutting the seats anyway, I'll replace the seat springs with the nicer C4 trapeze style instead of the similar springs that the C4 originally had and GM went away from that squeak and cut up the foam.



I'll beef up the sides of the foam on the bottom cushion, but instead of buying the laughably priced kit I'll just cut shipping foam to the correct shape/size.

(I still need to find a do the rear speaker covers)

I think it came out great. I wish it hadn't taken 7 months.


Or cost... so much.




But I think in the end it was worth it. I'm much happier with this color scheme, and the new carpet (while definitely not being quite as high quality as the original OEM stuff would have been) is much nicer and fits much better than my worn out shrunken old carpet. I also by and large avoided the horrendously annoying parts (the kick panels, the driver's side hush panel) because I just bought used Flame Red ones so I wouldn't have to bother.






"But what about Ayeka, you're asking."



Well, I bought this:

(No I don't drive with it on all the time)
And changed the driver's side window regulator 3 times:
