In late 2006 my passion for Porsche that had been kindled by owning a boxster lead me to search for a 911. In February 2007 I found a lovely, well used 964 carrera 2 coupe in GP white and embarked on a new adventure. This running report is about my 964 that would be used for high days, holidays and track days and be a 'project car'. It wouldn't matter if it spent time waiting for things to be fixed as it wouldn't be used as a daily driver.

Recaro Pole Position seats fitted (Jun 08)

Although the standard seats are in good condtion and comfy I wanted something more suitable and lighter for track work. After trying a few seats out I plumped for Recaro Pole Position racing shells in black leather with black suede cushions. To fit the seats I needed new double locking sliders and side mounts. Here's the mounting kit that was bought from Southbound Trimmers:

And here's the kit being checked out for fit in the car after removing one of the original seats:

I took the opportunity to give these areas a good clean out but was disappointed to find only a grand total of 7 pence that had been lost down there by previous owners. Once I'd worked how everything went together it was a simple case of bolting them in:

At the moment I've just got the normal 3 point seat belts installed but with a bit of luck a set of Sabelt 4 point harnesses will be arriving this week in time for its next trackday.
