Here is just one of the interior. I don't want to steal Freddie's thunder here since he will be posting many other pics of the before and after. PS. I just love the matching-green Carrera script in the black contrasting floor mats.

Here are a few more shots of the 74 Carrera...these are my favorites. Porsche, tracks, railroads and trains go together pretty well. Perhaps my picture backdrops are getting a little old. Okay next Porsche photo shoot we are doing the streets of San Francisco with possible video...

Tomorrow I'm ready to get dusty starting to allign all gaps and starting body work. Carrera is moving along nicely. This car absolutely must be dead on with body work in order to show the smooth Lime Green when sprayed...I'm getting trigger happy to start spraying once more Lime Green.

Real RS ducktails have sored in price. I have seen them go from $2500-$3500. I personally let one go back in 2004 for $2500. Today, there are many clone ducktails that in many ways, are much stronger than the originals. However, I'm yet to see a clone ducktail have the same look as the originals. The original have a very unique look and feel to them that unless you have restored one, you know exactly what I'm talking about. The backs of the frames of the real RS ducktails had little protection from rust. Because of this, the rust created a film between the metal frame and the fiberglass causing delamination. This created lot's of vibration between the panels causing stress cracks on the fiberglass. I will attempt to show the full restoration of a real RS ducktail.

The first thing to remember is that old fiberglass with time becomes weak. So, attempt to work with the ducktail with care when detaching the metal frame from the ducktail. I first start by stripping the front side of the tail frame. By using a 3M stripping wheel, you take less of the metal of the frame.

Using a small air pencil grinder you can CAREFULLY cut around the the ducktail where the fiberglass meets the steel frame. It's important to get the cut right so you do not go through the fiberglass tail. Once the frame is free of the tail, pull and inspect the backside of the frame. Because the frames were not rust coated, the rust attacks the backside of the frames...time for media blasting.

PS. the guy we purchased the tail from said it would take me 4 hours to restore the tail....

HA! That's good stuff!

I love following your posts/threads. I hope you continue posting on the ducktail restoration process. . . I'd like to learn how you bond the metal back to the fiberglass.
