car floats at speed


The car has been lowered, the person that services most things 911 for me does not think it needs a tail to stabilize it.

The front smile has a small piece out of the bottom edge that I cut away after a friend hooked it over a parking curb.

BTW, the last friend to drive it.

Anyway, the car sways a bit, even on a day without great winds.

Is it possible that I have lowered it too much for proper air flow on an SC?

Speed range would be 120kmh to 150ish.

windshield replacement

Does anyone know of a good windshield replacement installer in the Columbia / Baltimore MD area?

Window and other trim discoloration

The car sat in a heavy rain overnight. In the morning, the rear window trim (both sides), door handles and rear spoiler grill were all mottled with heavy white splotches that couldn't be removed with compound or wax. The car paint was ok. My mechanic and a body shop had never seen anything like it. After 2 days back in the garage, all traces were gone; the trim was black again. It never happened before in spite of wahing the car many times. Any ideas on what happened? 

cost of a first class, same color repaint of a 1978 SC

This car was repainted years ago and it now chips very easly. What should a first class repaint in the original color be ? The repaint of years ago was also in the original color as far as I can determine. Any suggestions who could do this in the Boise ID area ?

I am possibly buying a 1979 911. The badge on the rear deck lid says Carerra 3.0. The vin# 9119302873. The first 3 indicates it is an ROW correct? Is that why it does not say 911 SC? Also is there a person in Reno NV that can do a pre purchase inspection?Thanks,Michael Langley

I removed the steering wheel and replaced the turn signal switch on my 1982 911 SC. I just noticed there is some grease on the horn contact and. Before I replace the steering wheel I want to know if I should clean and/or apply some type of grease to the inside of the steering wheel, i.e., white lithium grease? If so what do I grease and what do I avoid greasing?Any help is appreciated, Thank You
