Chrome window trim for the 997 coupe?

  • Dear fellow readers,

    After 15 years of abstinence I have rediscovered this forum, actually no mistake, because my car is the same for 18 years, a sealgrey 997 C2 coupe with very few extras and kilometers, now 28tkm, but according to the motto "every fool likes his Karrn" my dream car to grow old.

    Since a topic of the time is the (for me moderate and retrofittable) backdating, I have also dealt with it and think of matte black fox-look wheels with shiny turned rim flange and, here it comes, chrome or shiny polished side window moldings, as they can be ordered again as an extra since the 991/981. If this option had been available in 2005, I probably would have made a cross there.

    The domestic and international aftermarket give nothing, at least I have found nothing suitable. Self-adhesive strips look, at least to me, a lot like fuzz tuning and are not flexible enough in the necessary width to accommodate the swing of the rear side windows. Detail foiling is ruled out by my local specialist because the chrome foils are not flexible enough due to their metal content and also do not stick well enough to the rubber of the window seals. Plastidip is out of the question because it doesn't come in chrome silver.

    I'm thinking of trying the 991 window chrome strips, since the geometry of the 997 and 991 is not very different.

    Or could something like that be 3D plotted or printed in chrome-plated plastic or chrome-plated or even polished stainless steel or aluminum at reasonable cost?

    I do not want to raise here of course the originalitystifosi unnecessarily the blood pressure, something Rückrüstbares would be for me also quite clearly the most desirable, but one may always consider: "jedem Narrn...." (see above) and gladly let me be called one, if it helps anything.

    Does anyone of the worthy fellow readers perhaps have an idea how I could get to my goal? Does anyone have similar glittering dreams?

    Thank you very much, your Uwe from Augsburg

  • If you just approach a "chrome plater"?? For example, Betz Chrome in Gräfelfing. They had already helped me once.

  • From Porsche there were only window moldings for the Targa with chrome.

  • ...and they have a different shape...

    At least on the rear side windows. Everything on the door side window should fit.

  • Thank you very much, but that's not what I mean. I mean the wraparound chrome or stainless steel window trim like on the old 911 of the sixties/seventies, as available again as an extra since the 991 or 981 Cayman.

  • There was nothing for the underside, the sealing strip on the window.

    Since there is also no metal frame but only rubber it does not go to construct something circumferential in chrome.

  • Good evening,

    if I wanted this, I would only have it professionally done.

    Remove and really well vercrhromen let.

    Undoing it will then be difficult for the time being.

    Greetings

    Michael
