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 …

Very nice.
How are you planning on holding the lenses in place?

I think the dent comes standard on all 944's! Smile Smile Smile Smile
The headlight bucket have 3 screws that I install to make them adjustable. very easy with an allen wrench, I will include if I can find where to buy them in bulk....


I have plans to use 4 small screws to hold the lens covers on.

There's a pretty good lip around the edge. I would think that automotive two-side tape (used for panels, glass, etc.) would be sufficient to hold the lenses on?

I agree. Corvettes use 2-sided tapey foam stuff for their rear spoiler so it should be enough to hold down a lens.

That would work with these as well. That is partly why the lip is a half inch wide. The way that the adjustments are made is from the front. So as long as the lights are adjusted and you keep some spare tape I say go for it. If you get bulb holders like on the set in the picture you can replace the bulb without ever removing the cover.

Id like to use late Porsche inner fixins which are adjustable from the rear outside of the buckets. We'll see though. Probably something including more fiberglass. Very Happy

Slow, I am having a hard time getting the acrylic to melt. I will put some more time in on it this weekend. I don't get a lot of time for the R & D stuff.

Lexan

Post  968gene on Thu Aug 27, 2009 8:51 pm

Have you tried googling lexan vacuum forming? you can build a simple machine using a shop vac. lexan needs to bake in the oven (kitchen oven will do) for a long time to drive out the moisture, then into a form and turn on the vacuum...

I have found the following article usefull when forming things from acrylic. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Stick with acrylic as its UV resistance is not affected after forming. Coated UV Polycarbonate can't be formed as the protective coating will usually be damaged in the process....You could look at co-extruded polycarbonate sheet [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I know what I'm doing, It's just a matter of getting my machine to come up to the proper temp.

Here's my delima I always thought those round projection lights looked great in the 924gt style buckets.
Now mind you the 924gt buckets in the original 924gt with the square headlights looked great as well, it was the aftermarket buckets that never really looked right.
But after what you did and seeing the square headlights in the car you definately did a great job and captured what the original 924gt looked like.
So now I am torn to get the square or round projection lights and leaning towards the square lights after seeing your buckets.
GJ on what you did.

Hella Projection Lights

Post  87-944S on Sat Sep 05, 2009 9:24 am

I bought a set of the Hella lights, they are really high quaility. So, mount them even, offset one ahead, low beam outside or inside? Looking for suggestions.

Thanks,

Mike

Do you have any pictures of the actual headlight covers? Looks like a good deal!

Low beams are 90 mm, high beams are 60 mm, but the body is really 90 mm. I had 90 mm high beams, but the body was too large to sit side by side with the 90 mm low beams. The 60 mm projector high beams are just enough smaller to allow both to fit side by side. I'm using the metal mounts by Hella, and there is trimming required to get them to fit properly. I also have to fab some brackets, I'll post pics when I get to that point. These will be fully adjustable from inside the engine compartment, using the Hella mounting system.
