Default 1972 Porsche 911, Resto-mod

Figured Id post up some pictures of the Porsche that More Impatient and I are assisting in bringing back to life. This will be a big thread, LOTS OF PICTURES, and descriptions that go along with it.

Little backstory- The guy who owns the Porsche is my neighbor, and is well known in the Porsche community. He's been working his magic on these car's for a very long time. 99% of the time, everything he does is done inside his own garage (outside of machine work on the motors).

To show some of the stuff he's done,

This

to


Painted and built in his garage.






Again, these are just some of the very few things Ive watch him create. So when the the '72E showed up at his house, and I quickly volunteered myself to help when I could. After discussing some parts of the build, and that he was ready to pass the final paint and body work off, I suggested the best person I know who could impress him. That person of course is my good friend and forum member, More Impatient.

Once Sam (the owner) finally signed off on bringing in Rick and myself to help, I was floored. To me, this was huge. Im a huge Porschefile, have helped Sam on a few other cars, but nothing like this. To have him trust the both of us (99% of it being with Rick) really set the bar high.

Rick hopes to have the car painted and done here soon ( next few weeks) then it's back to Sam's for the final stages.


Here's the day he got the car:


As you can see in the background, he's got two more P-cars in the garage before this one got touched.

The car was a 1972 911E that had been poorly converted to "short hood" and had the widebody done early in its life. It sat from 1979 until Sam rescued it.



Here it is finally going under the knife!



Front end chopped off, battery boxes replaced, put it back into OG longhood status. Front ST flares being mocked up.



Front flares being tacked into place.



Here the car sits in primer, getting closer and closer to the day Rick starts his magic.


ALL PREVIOUS PICTURES AND WORK DONE BY THE OWNER



A few weeks ago, it was time to do the deed.



Sam, another Porsche he just sold, and this badass Ducati Desmo.



The two great minds discussing plans for the car.






Loading her up to be brought to Rick.

Explaining the In's and Out's to a truely perfect paint job by the man himself.




Car looks and appears to need minimal work to the untrained eye. With Rick's extremely picky nature for having a perfect body, this car was trash. It needed lots of work.




Prepping the car



Fenders off!



Masking the car off for the first initial stages of bodywork.




Getting ready to scotch-brite the doors so they can go into primer



Same for this door, it needs some attention.



This is a "new old stock" factory hood that Sam had been saving for a special project. It still had factory sealant on it. On initial look, it appears to be a survivor, going all these years flawless. NOPE. Unfortunately, it needs some smoothing over, although minor.







Rick doing his thing massaging the drivers side to a flawless finish. Id really like to point out, that if you rubbed your hand over them, it was like the rocky mountains. After a few hours at the hands of an expert, its unbelievably smooth.







Passenger side at this time had gotten some attention, and turns out, needed alot of it!





Kind of a birds eye of the car. These pictures will conclude the posting until I can sort through more pictures

One of the doors after it's been gone over with dolphin glaze.



Hood after being gone over and imperfections removed







I apologize for the out of order pictures, I some how managed to forget them in the upload process.



Id also like to note that Rick is out there more than I am, and will hopefully be chiming in with his own pictures, captions, and the like.

To further continue with another aspect of this thread, is a part Im more familiar with, although, Ive never taken apart a Aircooled motor. After all the accessories are off, they are retentively easy to work on.



Getting situated.



Pre- tear down.



Sam, instructing Abe ( his visiting nephew) and myself on removing the cylinder walls. Very strange to someone like myself who's never seen a motor dis-assemble like this. After this, Abe and myself started to go to town.



Getting hammered, wooo



Removing another cylinder wall.



boom, motor down to its "case" after the walls, and pistons were removed. Next, we removed all the bolts holding the case together. I did not take any pictures of this, as its fairly hard to document bolt removal.

Dont be. You know how bad it sucks to watch him build all these badass cars, cars that I LOVE (mostly because of what he does, along with other tuners) and watch him get great deals, turn and flip them? I wish I had the chance to scoop up some of the cars he's offered me.

As do I! Hopefully one of these days itll be "My porsche build thread"



The hood down to bare metal, getting ready for epoxy, sadly that portion wasnt documented.






This is right after Rick sprayed them down with a high build urethane primer.



The fenders are guide coated, blocked, anything that needed to be corrected gets done, then goes into primer.
Everything but the car is onto the second round of high build primer.






The black stuff on the car is guide coat, used after primer to determine low spots. Where the yellow or whatnot is where it was guide coated, and blocked with a flex block. A flex block is vital to getting a silky smooth finish, used on curved sections of the body where a regular block wouldnt achieve such a nice finish.


Im short two pictures as my phone isnt taking forever to email them back to my self so I can upload them. (photobucket blows goats on the mobile version, and isnt worth the trouble)
