Restorations

Preserving a classic

There is nothing more satisfying than taking an old, unloved Porsche and restoring it back to its former glory. We concentrate primarily on pre-1974 Porsche 911s, and restore them back to exactly how they left the factory many years ago. However, whilst it is imperative to restore every last detail back to its original condition, we do utilise some modern materials to improve comfort like sound deadening and insulation.

We are proud of our painstaking attention to detail, which not only comes from an obsessive aptitude of a keen eye but a rigorous process that ensures all cars are restored with impeccable attention to detail.

The Restoration Process

Firstly, we completely strip the car down to its most basic components checking every part we disassemble to confirm whether it can be restored or whether it needs to be replaced by genuine Porsche parts.

The bodywork and shell are Enviro-dipped in order to remove any corrosion or contaminants, then etched primed to create a strong protective layer against rust. Any damaged or corroded parts are replaced and welded using the same technique/finish as original. Every component is finished to the exacting standard, as it was when the car originally left the factory.

Once every component has been restored or replaced, we start the exciting process of rebuilding the car to its former glory. When every part has been meticulously fitted the way Porsche intended, we extensively test the vehicle to confirm it performs as well as new – if not better!
