    I had a couple of interesting news items today.
    1. I had an email with George Beuselinck (PCA Panorama Tech Q&A person for 944/968) – he reckoned the bottom line was the factory workshop manuals. And apparently the 968 manual builds on the 944 manual, which builds on the 924 manual, so you need all 3. And he very kindly agreed to send me a DVD copy of all 3. So let’s wait and see.
    2. I had an email with Craig Seko (PCA 944 Register advocate) and he offered that Clark’s Garage was the best source out there.

    So a couple of interesting inputs on building our catalog f tech data. My plan is to build a list of all our recommended sources and see if we can build a catalog of sources.

    Updates as-at Sept 2; I will update as our group provides info.
    11 of us have provided scoring of the service shops we know (1-5, 5 being the best). 9 of us only provided scoring of a single shop. I guess we don’t use service shop every much, hence the interest in more tech on these cars in UCR. Plus the 11 of us use 9 different shops.

    Hi Stefan, Did you get my 944/968 SIG email May 10 2020, with the link to the website for all the SIG info? Thanks for reminding me, I need to hotlink the items in the dec manual list. Does the one hotlink I did do work for you? Roger
