Very nice job - but I am not convinced it was worth the effort as the before-pics show that the car was in pretty good shape (no rust damage, no accident etc...). You would have ended with a not so different visual result with just a thorough cleaning of the car and detailing of the engine bay, and a few replacement bits here and there for the interior.
The engine notably looked very good under the dust in the first pics even before the rebuild (I dont know what was its mechanical shape though). On the face of it it appears as a good example of expensive "overdone" job IMHO.

Looks like a Zuffenhaus build over here...and a good cleaning won't get you anywhere near what those guys do, you truely end up with a brand new porsche.

There is no point in doing a bare metal restoration when the shell is in perfect shape with no rust or damaged part that needs replacement. Look at the pics describing the body treatment: it has not needed any kind of surgery/repair/patch at all!!! it is just throwing money out of the window, which is something you might consider only if you have so many that you dont care what you do with it.
