Make Your Own Cayman Rear Diffuser (Apron) Grill Mesh

Make Your Own Cayman Rear Diffuser (Apron) Grill Mesh

Cayman Cosmetic Mods ,
I decided to make my own grill mesh to fill in the gaping holes in the rear bumper of my 2012 Cayman R. This is a very simple DIY and I did it in a few hours and for about $50. I think it turned out great. First, after much google searching and getting real smart on what kind of different mesh materials are available such as perforated, woven, or expanded, plastic, aluminum, steel, brass, etc, I came across the perfect material that I think looks much more finished than the expanded mesh used most often. It is a 0.25"…

987 Side Scoop Intakes

987 Side Scoop Intakes

Cayman Cosmetic Mods , , , , ,
As some of you may recall, I installed the MotorLux carbon fiber side scoops a few years ago and they've remained on my car ever since. The side scoops lasted longer than MotorLux did (they are no longer in business). Truth be told, I was never overly fond of the way the driver's side scoop attached with must some wire bending to try and make it hold tight against the body of the car. It was a pain to reach around inside of the scoop and bend the wires so that everything would sort of stay in place. Enter Fluid987…

LED Lighting For Clear Engine Cover LED Lights

Cayman Cosmetic Mods , , , , , ,
I have been looking around and could never find a "Install thread" on LED illumination for the HIP design cover for my Cayman. I have seen after pictures several times. Here is my go at it. First off I hate drilling and cutting into my Cayman. This install was all done with only one tiny self sealing hole poked in a rubber grommet. This also was a cheap mod. The whole project cost me about $35.00. Most items were bought from Amazon with the exception of the wire, insulating shield, heat shrink and connector. All this can be removed in…

Jtec Smoked Red + Clear Signals LED Tail Light

Cayman Cosmetic Mods , , , ,
This is a review and installation how-to of the Jtec 987 Cayman LED Tail lights. I purchased the 'Smoked Red + Clear Signals LED Tail Light'. Be careful as the other three options are dramatically different looking and though Oliver Tan will ask you to verify your choice you still want to be crystal clear which ones you want. The Smoked Red Tail Light option appears read when light is shining on it from the rear but changes to a deep burgundy when the light is not hitting the reflectors inside. It almost matches the Carmon Red color of my…

Gloss-IT EVO 5H Quartz Ceramic Coating

Gloss-IT EVO 5H Quartz Ceramic Coating

Cleaning and Detailing
One of the items I noticed about members picking up their new Porsches, particularly GT4's was that many of them were getting something they called a "Quartz" treatment or Quartz coating on their car.   Members seemingly were paying thousands of dollars for this coating as well.   My first thought was "Why are people paying $2000 for a wax job?".   Even the best waxes I've used are gone or severely reduced after a couple of car washes, so why would someone pay $2k for something that didn't last?  The answer is they don't.  A Quartz coating is not like a normal…

Dives Planes and Gurney Flap from Rennsport-One

Cayman Performance Mods
I would like to thank Justin Bellinzoni at Rennsport-One for providing me access to their track tested GT4 aero products. You can read about their GT4 race car and their associated products at www.rennsport-one.com . I decided to try out their dive planes and gurney flap. After all, the GT3's use both in race form, surely Porsche must be on to something. In fact, this was something I discussed with Justin during our first call. "Would I notice any difference after adding these two products to my car" I asked Justin. Justin was very forthright and said that during normal…
