I checked out your car at HPDC earlier this month, it is very nice. Glad that you are enjoying her, they really are special

Dropped her off at Bethesda Detailers: https://www.bethesdadetailers.com/ for a quick hand wash this week and she came back looking great



Full disclosure, the shop is part of Chevy Chase Acura and we know the owner.

Hmmm good idea, wonder if they have a 356 size. Since I need a paintjob someday anyway, an xmas tree on top would be fun.

Reminds me a lot of the crazy $ Rennline roof rack.

I can’t decide if I like it on the 993. It fits 1969 through 1998 911’s.

I do not think that he has a jig for 356’s

The Rennline rack is a knock off of this design which originally can from California and the VW community. It was started by a guy named Pedro. Just Google Petra’s roof racks and you will get an eye full.
