Restoration overview


The well-preserved body was completely disassembled in our house and then completely stripped of paint and chemically derusted by a specialist company in an immersion bath. For this purpose, the side skirts of the vehicle had to be removed because the heating pipes are installed in these in air-cooled Porsches and they would otherwise be damaged.

Then new side skirts were installed and some rust damage on the side walls was professionally repaired. The trunk floor and parts of the underbody were also renewed. 

Body work was done on a frame straightening bench and restored to the highest standard using body tin. For this purpose, all body parts were dented and installed on the vehicle before painting to ensure a 100% accuracy of fit. Filled areas were reduced to a minimum.

The body was provided with an extremely resistant epoxy rust protection primer.

Before painting, the entire body received a complete seal with paintable body sealant. The entire vehicle floor including the wheel arches was  completely sealed and painted in body color. 

The original color 1510 "Irish green" was used for the entire body and extensive cavity protection was applied to all cavities before final assembly.
