Well Tom two weeks ago you told me to look out for a complete surprise !

Very VERY nice, your treatment makes this car look like a true racer.
The glass work preparation is also a credit to you.

I'm jealous.

VERY NICE TOM!
Things really start comming together when it is painted. I would set the rest of the "bright" parts on the car and see how it looks before I made them black. Something tells me that the the "bling" will look good with that color.

Agree, The contrast of the polished parts realy makes it complete. A 2 colored scheme looks incomplete. One needs a third color. For example just imagine the Harleay racing colors ( orange black white) without one of them , how boring.

Thanks for your all compliments. As soon the panels are aligned and the rest of the parts mounted i will post a short walkaround vid.

Here is the original porsche color shade in direct comparisson to my adaption

Hi Tom, fantastic result ! The body algnment, preperation and final colour choice come together to great effect.
Are there going to be stripes of any kind ?

After picking up the car from the painter a lot of detailed work has had to be done to get it ready for the first official presentation.
- realigning the bodywork
- painting the black frames on the plexiglas
- installing the lights front and rear
- installing the plexiglas
- adapting the exhaust to fit to the G50
- installing shifter and making it work
- installing DZUS fasteners and Hartwell latches
- installing door boxes
- installing dash vent grill
- installing al weatherstriping
- installing doorhandels and door striker plates ( now 1,5 mm stainless steel) and porsche latches
-installing the satin black powdercoated 9 hole grills
- over all cleanup and finsihing

I worked pretty hard and late but achieved my goal to have the car in a pretty nice condition for presenting it at the biggest bavarian vintage car festival ( more in the RCR section)

Some pics for you about the current stage.






can you detect the turnsignal lights ?




















we notched the bottom of the silencer to clear the g50 and changed the angle of the outlet pipes to clear the rear clip.

Very nice work Tom... Quite an innovative solution on the Muffler/Silencer!

It looks like a little re-work took place for the shifter cables/levers...

How does the shifter feel?
