i just bought a 550 Spyder. Should be coming to my home in a week. I have been looking for a few months and hopefully i made the right choice. I had a 356 super wide body. After driving one of the coolest cars i have ever owned i decided i wanted a real Porsche 911. So i sold the wide body. Bought a 1978 911 targa and decided to do a full restore after i found out the motor had a broken head stud. The body is getting a back date which is almost done. The motor is getting built by Ed Pink Racing. Been there over a year already.
Back to the spyder
I want to change the interior carpet to black and i think Beck sells a kit. Didn't see any on the VMC site.
My big question is this: The wheels are fuchs with a narrow 5 pattern (5x130) I want to change the wheels to be more period correct. So do i buy the wide 5 (5X205) steelies and use adapters to fit onto the narrow 5 pattern i have now or
do i buy the steelies that are 5x130. which are better if you have 4 wheel disc brakes from what i have read?
Also thinking of doing a tartan style pattern for the seats.
I am sure I will have more questions once the car gets home.
Once i get her home i will post pics.
Thanks in advance.
