Wow. That's awesome. I was expecting the worst. I am very happy for you - the floors look much better than I would have ever imagined. You have that going for you, which is nice. With the floors in that shape, the other body areas are probably good as well.

My father helped pull off the door panels today to check underneath them. Aside from an occasional rat bite mark they are surprisingly good for how long they have been outside.



I'll need to fix up the bungies and straighten the pockets




Pulling off the panel reveals that the original plastic is still on the passenger side. The driver side still has most of the original but looks to have been removed at some earlier point.



Not too bad!

Pulled off the wheels and checked the rotors to see if they are within tolerance. Looks good! Anyone recommend any good shops for this in California?

Great find! Love the color...I hope to see the finished car on the road one day soon. Reminds me of my 1969 revival.

My car was parked as well since 1996 - when I got it in 2012. Gas tank was completely crispy and smoked inside. There was no saving it whatsoever.

Good Bones!!!

Looks like a great find and she's going to a good home. I will be following your progress. I live here in San Diego County and I'm pretty spoiled as to the condition of
60-80s Porsches. I'm a bit surprised to see the surface rust but the car looks solid otherwise.......best of luck and post your progress

All tar is pulled off. Rust converter is applied, roll on primer, one coat of black. The seat buckets will need to be painted green. Some heavy putting there but I think they will be fine for now. The parcel shelf is shot. I’ll need to get the metal from restoration hardware for that as well as the front suspension pan and gas tank support. Planning on patching up where my ****ty air conditioning unit is and pedal assembly was as well.
