1971 Porsche 911t Coupe
This poor car was setting under a tarp untouched since 1999, almost 15yrs. Luckily the rubber door seals stayed intact and kept the water out of the interior. The mice however found a way in!! After many hours of cleaning, washing, disassemble, ect I was ready to start the restoration.
After years of sitting, thing got a little rusty. Dust and dirt got in behind all the chrome and gaskets, acted like a sponge, and attracted water....rust...rust...rust.
I just cut it all out and replaced it with new metal.
Cut and Patch
After all the cutting and patching was complete, I started in on fine tuning the door, hood and trunk gaps and fit. Couple areas need a lot of attention.
The car was originally a burgundy color, someone painted it white in the '80's, now the owner wanted back to the original burgundy color. So I jambed everything first with single stage paint.
After the paint was dry, I closed it all up and sanded thru all the doors, trunk and hood gaps. This made everything smooth and straight. Then it was time to spray the color and clear. Used 4-5 coats of clear to ensure enough mil's so I could color sand and buff.
Let the sanding begin.
Then the cutting and buffing began.
I refurbished the Original Fuchs wheels, cleaned, satin polished and painted black. The center caps got new paint and a satin polish as well.
The finished project ready to enjoy.
