Thread: Need Opinions

    Need Opinions

    Need feed back:

    should I make some subtle changes to the look of my targa? Really getting into the two tone look aka Magnus Walker look.

    Yes or no?

    Great looking Targa Paul.
    For me personally, Duck tail and 964 bumpers would be a fantastic upgrade. Unique colour so I would leave it at that. I enjoy upgrades and tasteful mods it really makes your car, your car.....best of luck I'm sure your ideas will become reality.
    Look forward to seeing your transformation.

    Best,

    Yes

    For the two tone look I would use vinyl wrap. Zero risk, if you want to change back, peel it off.

    Brodie, you may recall years ago i had vinyl wrap on the hood (carbon fiber look), the wrap kept bubbling and peeling due to the amount of chips on the hood. Did not look good after awhile. Thinking of buying replacement hood and trunk, that way i can always put the originals back on at a later date.

    Mike, the duck tail would be my first option, not keen on the 964 bumpers, always liked the look of the big bumpers. Guess its just what I grew up dreaming about. My thinking is paint the hood and tail black to match the targa top, paint the porsche script on the tail in the original color.

    Or maybe something like this but in a more appropriate color for your car

    Hi Paul

    You know my preference when it comes to your car ... a "duck tail spoiler" is the ultimate look for the body lines of a 911 Targa. To my eye, the ducktail creates a visual break to the steep rake of the Targa's rear window and has better scale (less visual mass) on a narrow bodied car than the tea tray spoiler.

    Would also consider lowering the car to Euro ride height.

    Also saw a hood stripe on an early eighties series car that was very tasteful. (will try to locate a picture and post it here.)

    Found one that's' close ...
