For the body, the car was stripped to a bare tub. Factory original steel RS flares were sourced and properly welded into place. Both an aluminum deck lid and fiberglass ducktail were prepped and painted the same time as the rest of the car. Shortly after the car was completed and during the first few days of break in miles, the previous owner was hit in the rear while sitting at a stop light. The driver behind him wasn’t paying attention and thought the light turned green and ran into the back end.

The owner took the 911 to Cars Dawydiak of San Francisco for a complete redo of the bodywork and paint. Wanting the car to be as close to perfect as possible, the car was once again stripped down to metal and properly fixed. There was no damage to the tub, just superficial. However, to paint the car right and have it match, it needed to be completely redone. The only mechanical damage was to the oil tank and engine oil cooler, both of which were replaced.

After the body was done, Dawydiak’s Porsche specialist went through the rest of the car to sort any other final needs. Most of the work was done on wiring, sending units, and other electrical systems.

This Porsche comes with over 50 pages of build receipts, painted to match fiberglass ducktail, photo records of the build, and extra keys.
