The Porsche 912 was introduced as an entry level version of the 911. Powered by a 1.6L flat four engine mated to a 4 speed manual gearbox it was pretty quick and complimented the brilliant Porsche handling characteristics as well. During its 4 years of production they made 32,000 912s, substantially outselling the 911. At the end of its production it was replaced by the 914.
Our customer has owned this particular 1967 Porsche 912 for many years. He removed it from storage so we could perform necessary body work and repaint the car. Now it's ready to roll again, and the customer will be handling the interior restoration.
Here we can see rust damage we discovered upon arrival.
The offending portion was cut out, and new metal formed.
The new sheet metal has been formed and welded into place.
Finally, the metal is ground down and primer and paint applied to complete the repair.
The 912 needed bodywork and paint prep before we could apply primer.
In the paint booth, the primer layer is applied.
After much prep, primer and lots of sanding, the final coats of green go on.
