So, I got me a nice Porsche 934 'Black Edition', but, as I don't like black for a model car, I looked into an alternative color scheme. In the end I came across this picture of the white 934 from Vasek Polak (see picture below). I thought it looked really cool so I decided to go for the same 70'ies privateer racer look in white.
Part of the coolness of the Polak car are the awesome legendary BBS Turbofan front wheels. So, I made me a cad design for some versions to fit the original wheels of the model and printed them. They did need 7 coats of paint to get them smooth.

I solved the 'wheel base issue' of this model by copying the carbon chassis plates in 2mm aluminum plate and made them 5mm shorter. Weight difference of the plates is only about 15 - 20 gr more for both alu plates together in comparison to the carbon ones, not a lot.
I made a cad model for a 2.5mm spacer and printed 4 to get the body posts back into the correct position. I filed both the flat ends of the centre drive shaft 2.5mm longer per side to make it fit again.

Did not use the decals for the rear lights and front indicators but used paint instead.
Used a satin clear coat on the black window and bumper trim to get rid of the high gloss effect of those decals.
Panel lines are 0.3 and 0.5mm tape from ABC Hobby.
Happy with the end result. Hope you like it too!

Simply amazing. Looks awesome. I especially like the idea of the BBS Turbofan front wheels. HPI do have wheels in both black and white with a fan, but they are 6mm offset.

Topclass 934! Very, very cool with the Turbo BBS. But all the other details are very well made, too. If you ever bend your Alu chassis, you can have 6mm shorter carbon version now by Maxspeedparts really cheap. You should sell your Turbo wheel covers, guess they would be a hit on Shapeways. Well thought out project!

Great car and very nice aluminum work on the chassis. You could have a lucrative side going there.

Works Great. Used it first time on this model.
Advantage is, after aplication, you can still manipulatie the position of the tape a bit to get it in the position you want. Used the back of a brush for this.

absolutely amazing look there, it is great. I might have a dig around here in my pile of decals to see if I can get you some of the sponsors like Shell and Bilstein or the like if you would like me to do so. drop me a line, I would love to hear what you do in the bicycle field, it is a hobby of mine too, currently I am working with a tandem shop part time to be a shop assistant and broom pusher, but it is fun and keeps me out of some trouble a couple days a week. LOL

Thanks for the compliments guys!
@Crash Cramer, thanks, that is a very nice offer you're making! I had some more decals on the body but it wasn't the look I was aiming for so I took them off again. question off 'less is more' in this case I guess. So thanks again for the offer, but for now I 'll keep it like this. maybe next time... . O, and I am an engineer for Trek (based in the Netherlands), mainly developing e-bikes

You did a great job!
I did the Vasek Polak livery with the 40th ann. version.
Take a look in my showroom.
