Hello, you have such great taste in transport. I love your 612 and your garage just blows me away! I too have a new garage but there is not enough room to have my turbo 1303 in the background.. 'Just 1 old aircooled in their at a time.

From what car are your new wheel arches sourced? I am inspired to fit my 'spare' 9" 993 rims at the rear with some steel wheel arches, similar to yours.

Keep up the good work,

The front is from 911 turbo G-model. Is just for fit the spoiler to the fender.
In the back is handmade. I just used arches from front fenders as a start

I´m not so good with updates :-) But the work is going on.
I had to make my fender wider to cover my Ruf wheels. There´s rules about covering wheels so I had to modifie again.
This time I bought replacement parts from Golf1/Rabbit for the rear fender. It looks really nice and it matched the shape of the front fenders.
And I have to make some modification on the 911 sideskirt so the fit the 412. The 412 has 25cm longer wheelbase compare to 911 so the sideskirt have to be added in the length.
When am finished with the fenders I´m gone remove the engine and transmission and everything under the car. I want to strip the body completly for the paint jobb.
l´ll show some picture when it´s painted. This days it´s not so exciting picture to show :-)

I have reserved one week of my vacation to work on my 612 :-)
This weekend I have done the mounting of the rubber seals in the engine.
I uses original 911 rubber seal
You can se some picture on the "vwnorge" linked above.

So to the big question.
What do I do with the color of the car. I think maybe this blue color is too 80´s.
What about silver metallic with carbon details on the front hood?
All the rubber parts will be more visible.
I´m very confused. But the color have to be easy to repair.
