PORSCHE Basalt Black Metallic
Full Leather Interior (Cocoa Brown), sunroof, etc. etc...
Bought used & abused in December of 2009; finished a 100% restore summer of 2010. Original color was Platinum Metallic but PO decided to give this a very bad overspray color change to Red (I even had overspray in the interior....). I stripped car down to bare metal for color change and decided on Porsche's Basalt Black Metallic (it has copper, brown and gold metallic in it and really sets off the Chocolate Brown leather interior).
Interior was gutted and what was bad was re-done by my brother and I back to the original Chocolate Brown color in leather. Door panels were redone using buffalo hide. A-pillars were redone using goatskin.
All engine work was completed once again by my brother and I.
All exterior trim was removed, stripped and repainted (what a difference!!!)
All seals and glass (except rear hatch glass)) were removed for repaint
All electrics were repaired (PO had a wiring disaster) along w/cruise control and sunroof by yours truly...
