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.

1969 Porsche 911S Restoration - Part 1
This is Part 1, of my 911S restoration project. Back to bare metal, original paint and colour scheme, with original engine. As I possess none of the skills required for this task, I will ensure I do not turn a single nut during the project. Alex Ward who cut his teeth on 356s back in Ol' Blighty, will prepare the body shell for painting, have it painted back to the original black, while Glyn Jones at www.autothority.co.nz checks the engine out and does whatever's needed to get it running sweetly. The black interior it now has will have the seats, rear panels and door panels replaced with the correct red colour. The plan is to have it registered and complete in August this year. The car will be the perfect Red And Black mobile, for Canterbury supporters. The awful video transitions and effects are courtesy of the utterly useless and very frustrating "VideoPad" editing software. I'm almost desperate enough to go back to "Microsoft Movie Maker". :P

Here is the bodyshell virtually complete in the paintshop. After a huge amount of work, the shell is paintred and ready to come back to the workshop. Now the assembly can start seriously!
