1967 911 Hot Rod Build Part 1: Metal Restoration

Im starting the metal repairs to this 67 911 Hot Rod Build for a pelican member.

It's to be Iceland Green like the beetle below and has had bad prior repairs.








Why bother? this was a waste of dry wall screws. Grounds for execution.

I love that signature Mad Max.

It is a nice green and not from the Mini palette, praise the lord.

Was originally light ivory which I really like.



Steve's got two motors to choose between. A T and complete E.

Finally getting going on this 67.
I rigged up a 1 ton chain hoist into the roof system to speed things along,, i.e.: setting the tub into the rotisserie and later lift it all into the trailer to deliver to the media blaster.

I'm exposing rust and getting it prepped for blasting into the cavities and other areas with corrosion.

You've got the skills!!!

Wow, that color is going to be fantastic. It will be nice not to be another RS/RSR makover.

I like that green you chose, it will suite the '67 well. I was looking at that colour as well as Mango Green L346 For my car.

Thanks for the comments about the color. I've had the idea for this color on a 911 for about 10 years. I've had a bunch of long hood cars and always gave up due to metal issues-then I met Matt

Matt is a metal master, I'm certain he can get this pile of junk back to a respectable driver.

The excitement is building, I think Matt is close to having the car ready for blasting.

That's also a fantastic color. I was torn between Agave green and Iceland green. But Mango green is gorgeous too...

Come on... Show us what Mango green looks like, too!

Well, not to deviate from this great resto, but it's nice to be able to know what you're talking about.

Even though I'd love to get back to my old Porsches in need of help, I can't help thinking that doing this project with a guy as tuned in as Porschenutt (Steve) will end up an epic build in the end.

Steve was influenced to possibly try a red interior by this Jag 120 pics.

I then thought how interesting it could be to trim the interior door tops in green with red cards. Also incorporating the same olive green square weave carpet many 356s were trimmed in. Red and green are complimentary colors.

I'd like to paint the dash and central tunnel Iceland green as well. I think these two areas would be served well with a clearcoat. The exterior will be single stage.

Point is with a great customer comes a great build. Many famous Architects have said the same..

It sets the artistic mind free. Influences from one creative person breeds the same in another. Ideas back and forth instigate more ideas, like a critical mass situation with the inspiration feeding off itself.

And thanks for the mango photo.

You're welcome Kevin and I agree.

Steve's original keys were missing iirc. This original hand written sticker reads FL 528. I believe this is the key code. Not all early cars have this.

I was careful when cleaning it to stay away from this sticker.
