Autobahn Porsche - 2023 Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge - Body Shop Pt3

Time for the final update in 2022 for our 1978 Porsche 911 Targa SC Restoration!

This update is going to be a short one. Last we saw the 911, Caliber removed the doors, and the interior was being gutted. You can read that here if you missed it: https://www.autobahnporsche.com/journal/porsche-restore-stage4/

In this update, the body panels are getting sanded down to the bare metal! By going deep down to the metal, the body panels can be perfectly shaped to form and fix the body panels if there are any issues.

With the rear panels sanded down, the following body panels to receive the treatment will be the doors and the front of the car. Stay tuned for that update, as we’ll have it in 2023!

Thanks for following our restoration process in 2022, and we can’t wait to show y’all when the restoration is finally complete!
