HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

i'll second that

guards red for sure in my bet. it's quite a popular color too from all the used ads i always keep a look out for in terms of maybe a cheap parts car grab; and i would dare say a favorite on the resale.

there was a crazy green in another thread which was a real eye-catcher.

Hey 944-LT1, i am guessing that's your guards red in the picture. Your projectors look georgeous and i am looking to do the same thing with a set of uncut buckets from 76-924 with light grey covers (think that's his username from memory).

What type of headlights (manuf. and part #?) did you use for the big/small combo shown in the picture?

Stone grey has always been a fav of mine, rare too. Looks very nice with flat black wheels.

little more info

Post  Gutterboy on Thu Aug 15, 2013 8:55 pm

did a couple reads on a bunch of search hits; including an old thread that doug951s contributed to;

sounds like the big three for colours are guards red, black, and alpine white.

less common colours were the tan (unsure of actual name of the color, see link below), garnet red, silver, maraschino red, and two colors that were really rare: ocean blue, and almond.

according to the following link it sounds like they kept the same paint color in different years but gave it a different name.

Champagne is one of my favorites, I think that is the color of RobotMachines 83, I had one of those too. The basic silver, black, red (Guards, and I forget the other) and white are always good. I haven't seen the stone grey, but I bet I would like it. I'm a fan of burgundy, what Porsche calls Maraschino red, which by name I would think would be a gaudy red, but is not. I've seen admin's auto conversion, and I have no idea of the color, but that was slick.

Bottom line, the 944 lines lend themselves to be color friendly, haven't seen one I didn't like. I think the metal flakes look very good. Mine will be a pearl metal flake, black cherry or a Lexus midnight amethyst pearl, with those curves from the flares, a pearl will be sweet.

Here's mine when it first got painted about 10 years ago. It needs a few touch ups now; maybe next year.

I think Black is always a beautiful choice, but so hard to keep looking clean. Looks good for 20 min a week, right after it's washed...

So I'll go for Guards Red for a street car. For a race car, I love the Jagermeister livery:

I like the Ocean Blue. Course the vast majority of 944's were painted Guards Red, as is mine...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]i like the brown nougat metallic.. its classy but very unique.  White looks kinda cheap but does allow somebody to use an imagination to add graphics, kinda like a blank canvas.  red is to common.  The blue is pretty awesome. BUT YOU CANT GO WRONG WITH BLACK! what car doesnt look good in black?
 
go with somethin different that nobody else has and be done with it.

Advertise it saying you will paint it with buyer's choice for the color. Very Happy

I guess we're all assuming it has a black interior. Laughing

as the ex head of coating at PORSCHE AG what it comes to colors it's all personal taste .
if you want to know the best selling color it is black . i'm not a fan of black cars at all but it's the most ordered color .
you would think that red would be the next best seller but no silver is then red .


the truth be told that if your repainting a car the best bet would be just to paint it in the OE color the car came with that way your not painting the inside of the car too so when you lift the carpet to get at the spare tire you doin't see a different color also your not getting into painting the under hood and engine bay also .
the hole point on flipping a car is to make the most money for the least amount of work and cash spent to do so .

personal i like blues and grays for my car colors . i have a rare 99 color code on my 968 it's called mexico blau #336 . it was a stock color in 1974 and 1975 only but i really like the way the color looks so i ordered it on the 968 when i bought it .
