This stunning Porsche 911 Turbo was brought to us by a long-standing customer in a slightly sorry looking state.
The first step as with anyone good repair is to know what you're up against. This means in this case, to work out the extent of the damage and what can be re-used. what panels can be repaired and what parts need to be bought.
We then stripped the front end bare incl:
Both Rad Packs, Bonnet, Bumper, Impact Bars, Front Wings, Arch Liners, Wirings looms etc, and set about repairing the damaged panels.
It was then time for the vehicle to be jigged and paneled on the front end. To keep in line with the factory finish, to allow for the best repair, we straightened and pulled the bent chassis legs and drilled the spot welds on the upper front panel to remove it. We then spot welded the new panel into place keeping to the exact markings as the factory spot welds.
From this, we were able to re-shape and repair both inner wings, meaning this alone saved our customer over £1400 and still looked like the original finish so that we could then use a grey water based seam sealer to replicate Factory sealent on all panel joints before final paint.
Once the car had been painted and polished we began the build this gorgeous 911 back to its pristine condition. Whilst the car was painted all 4 wheels were freshly refurbished meaning they looked as good as new.
Now that the wings were on, we could set about building up the new rad packs, with new radiators, brackets, and cowlings and bleeding the water system. We then re-fitted the other components such as the carbon canisters and the impact bars, meaning the car ran sweetly once again.
It was then time for the final build before the vehicle was road tested. This meant that all of the final parts were cleaned, replaced and then re-fitted and any remaining parts that were needed were then sourced before the final clean and Valet and road test meaning the car would then be complete and on the road for 1st January 2018
