Seeking reputable body shop for 911 restoration with rust



I’m looking for recommendations and referrals for a reputable body shop in the Northeast, that has experience with 911 restorations. My car is a 71’T with some rust in all the usual locations (suspension pan, pedal box, rear window lower corners, door jambs, and sadly the right rear suspension area). I am looking to have all these issues properly repaired and then a full bare shell repaint in the original color of Conda Green. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. I am located in Portland, Maine. Thanks, Oliver



Bush/leaf green special color formula

I have a 1969 911E ready for paint and am trying to get the formula for special color code 62163 known as either Leaf or Bush green.  Has anyone had a car painted in the recent past that I could contact the shop to get a spray out?  Or does anyone have a car this color that would consider getting it scanned by a paint shop so I could get a formula?

Body/paint shop in Toronto?

Can anyone recommend a good body/paint shop in or around Toronto? I need some body work done to correct some damage done by a transport company, as well as a glass out re-spray. Any advice/recommendations very warmly accepted. Thank you

1968 911t with flares on fenders

I recently purchased a 1968 911t and the all the fenders have flares on them. I looked at the fenders closely and show no signs of them being modified.

Is it possible for a 1968 SWB to have the fenders flared like the 1969 and newer style ?  I spoke to Mike at Restroation Design and he believes the 

late production cars in 1968  had the fenders flared . .  I decoded the VIN and it is a 1968 Targa T .

Wouls this be a rarity or did someone do a expert job of adding the flares on. There is no body filler and the back window is out and all the spot welds


What is involved in changing the seatbelt to a retractable one?  What is a reputable company and what hardware do I need?  Are there instructions anywhere?

1969 911 underfloor paint/coating


Could really use some guidance here, please. I'm restoring the underside of a long dormant '69 911E. We are sanding the underside of the car to clean up the surface rust and repair two small holes. 

We will need to repaint and or coat the underside of the car. The car is all original and stock so I'd like to keep that theme going. 

What is the proper paint and or coating to apply to the underside?




1973.5 porsche medallion

I have had my 1973.5 911T Targa restored.  Everything on the car, motor etc. is original, although restored.  i am concerned that the medallion on the front hood may have been changed.  Is there any way I can determine exactly what the medallion should like for that model and year?

Brant Clarke

First time poster. Has anyone had experience with Brant Clarke in DeSoto. I have a 1971 911T, purchased in California that I'm wanting to bring back here for restoration. I have met Brant, who is very personal and seems knowledgable. Just wanting to know if fellow KC PCA members have had or know of experience with Brant and his shop. Thanks in advance. Gary
