This Porsche 356 came to us directly from undergoing media blasting highlighting the usual signs of corrosion and many years of poor quality repairs.

After bracing and securing the shell we identified and removed the panels in need of replacement, cut out non replaceable corroded areas and fabricated and welded in panels as required.

Re-gapped and corrected all shut lines and swage lines.

Carried out lead loading as required.

Then the complete shell was painted into an epoxy primer prior to the body having final detailing with a polyester body filler, the body and panels then went through a complete priming process prior to being re-finished into it's chosen body colour.

The completed shell was then returned to it's owner who is re-fitting ready for the road.
