Nice job putting the 944 dash in! What did you use for the heater and A/C?

Any issues while installing it?

wheel stays it would be .. how to say, "rice" version to get "type r' "evo N" or something like that onto old-school auto. Old school wheel and gear knob both with porsche logos are OK in this case, imho. Leave rice tuning to rice boys with vw golf, colt's and civic's


Oh no not the ricer excuse again...

Customizing isn't ricing. '40s, 50's and '60s customs are not rice, even though the vast majority of mods are purely cosmetic. They aren't trying to look like race cars (ricer isn't just an indication of asian cars or asian drivers, but a spinoff of the word "racer.") So custom modern cars that aren't trying to look like race cars aren't necessarily rice, even if built from commonly riced cars.

Rice is also not a fast car that actually HAS the parts the stickers say. Basically, if it can "back up" the race look with real performance, it's not rice, even if you think it's tacky looking. Rice is, after all, about fake performance and the attitude that a slow car is actually faster than everything else.



CUSTOMIZING ISNT RICING... YOU have done all the interior customizing yrself... a steering wheel which actually suits the rest of the interior isnt rice..

Besides whilst i love the rear lights and would love them on my car...they are by definition "RICE"... arent corvette/ferrari lights on a 924 making it appear to be more of a sports car then it is?

Well, according to the guy who invented teh modern version of the term (and the website everyone copied, riceboypage.com), it's someone who makes a slow car look liek a race car with either fake parts, improperly installed parts, or just stickers for parts they don't have.


NO offence just my 2 cents

AND FYI I LOVE WHAT YOUVE DONE...LOOKS AWESOME!

serz - the interior looks really nice! I bet it was a ton of work, but it came out really slick

do you by any chance have more pictures of the door panels? I hope you don't mind, but I might want to copy what you've done as I'm thinking about putting some new components in my car (just got a KLA sub box and I've got a JL 300/4 sitting at home to power the system). Thanks

Nice job, dash looks great and I love the logos but it looks like all that white would be a PITA to keep clean.

will post some more better q photos later, maybe next week, haven't done yet.

about keeping clean - mostly it's a headache while working on something inside (wires etc) shouldn't be problem for normal driving with everyday clothes (if you are working clean job). of course this is not my daily car

Looks real nice on the inside.. my honest pinion though the back vette conversion looks good as far as the craftmanship though why one would want to do it is beyond me I would never do something like that to the back of a porsche.
