    Car fires are no joke. The best one I saw (sort of involved in) was a Honda Accord that went up in flames from the use of flash bangs. It was epic.

    Mistakes were made.

    I may throw some salt over my shoulder as well - can't hurt?

    definitely post more details on the damage, when you get it. lots of folks have extra parts available.... i've got tons, including a few spare LCMs. collectively, we'll get your new-to-you ZHP back on the road.

    now, about those 911s... still got one?
    Thanks!

    Although I dabble with BMWs (here's a thread on my last M3) -prior to that I had a black 95 M3 with a euro 6-speed conversion, which I bought as an automatic (both were great cars), my real life thing and day job is vintage 911s - like this, and this (my current car.)

    However, back to the situation at hand; I was too late on the door panel, although I managed to snag this dash from craigslist:

    so, still need a good driver's door panel.. (and HK tweeter, etc.)

    A good source of E46 parts: https://www.ebay.com/usr/thebavarian...p2047675.l2559

    Local to me and comes with high marks from some members here who have had dealings with him.

    PS: Nice Porsche! I hope that 2018 will be my year for a P car.

    good score on the dash!

    even better score on the day job - you have my Dream Job. i have been gonzo for porsches since the late 80s when my dad had a 911 cab. i was hooked at that point and have had an emotional connection with them ever since - far more than any other car.

    Nice pick up on the dash. let us know if you need a extra set of hands.
    We have a great "mini mafia" in the Charlotte area
    We have 5 or 6 members around here.

    Nice find on the dash!

    A couple of parts I would want to check would be the steering angle sensor on the steering column. It's a pain to replace, but since you'll already be tearing out the dash, a good time to do it. It's near the footwell, so it may not have experienced heat damage. The IHKA module in the HVAC control might need to be replaced. And the FSU probably needs replacing whether it is damaged or not -- it is the blower motor resistor (FSU - final stage resistor), a common failure. I am restoring a 2005 330Ci with my son, and we're replacing a lot of common failure items. I saw quite a few steering column covers on eBay, if you need those.

    Good luck with your project, and if I ever buy a Porsche, I'll know who to call.
