Porsche 911 1968 restoration project summary Jan 2011.wmv
Still no bodyshell back from the paintshop (I'm chasing them every 2 weeks at present), so here I take stock of where I am and how much the project has cost me (and likely to cost overall). Building a 911 as a full 'make as new' restoration brings with it eye watering costs - and that's another reason why it's been fortunate I've taken 2 years so far and will probably take another year to complete.
On this clip I also talk about the fuel tank restoration. Run time here is just under 17 minutes.

Porsche 356 Speedster Cut In Half Restoration by Albert Segatore
This 1957 Porsche Speedster was cut in half over 25 years ago by a previous
owner we assume for storage purposes. I restored all the metal on the car
including the floors, rocker panels, tunnel, torsion tubes, door panels,
trunk and engine lids. This car had virtually no rust and made a nice
N Fulljames cam timing.wmv
In Part 3 of this final Nick Fulljames master class, Nick shows how to do
the camshaft timing on the flat-6 engine. He finishes the build of the
'long' motor by bleeding the chain tensioners. At the end of this session
the engine is basically complete, less the ancillaries like the cooling
fan, distributor, oil fittings etc.

911 bodyshell & suspension.wmv
I've completed what I want to do on the stripped bodyshell underside,
wheelwells and cabin. The outer panels will be painted by a pro paint shop.
Here we discuss what I've done on the underside and introduce the work I'll
be doing to the suspension, steering and braking system
911 68 gauges, trim & seats before restoration.wmv
Just a short clip to show the gauges, glovebox lid and all the interior
trim before it starts restoration. We've got a big job here, but notr as
big as the bodyshell has turned out to be.
The bodyshop is doing the work on my shell as and when they can fit it in
to their works schedule. This is because it has turned out to be a much
larger job than planned. When the body guy started looking at it, he found
just about every panel needed work. We're also replacing both door skins
and the left sill, besides much other major work. I'm hopeful I'll have
something to show you soon!
