I am considering purchasing a 1971 911. How do I research the history of the car and potentially pursue a COA?

I have found what I think is an excellent example of a 911 longhood.  The car is currently yellow, but the seller informs me it was originally signal orange.  I am interested in restoring it to the original factory color.  How would I set about researching that?  Second question is regarding pursuit of a COA.  ISs that done through my local dealer or what is the process?

Best Insurance Company for Porsche Collection

Hi, I have a small collection of pretty rare air cooled Porsches; 73RS, 993RS, 964RS, 959, 2.2 911S, 57 356A Carrera GS/GT, 1965 911.  Also own current Porsches.

Hagerty wont insure my cars in South Florida.  I use another insurer.  Clearly, I pay a ton for insurance which seems high for my collection since they stay safe inside a climate controlled and very safe space and also rarely used cars since I have quite a few in rotation.

Can someone help me inspect a car in Tucson Arizona?

Can someone please help me inspect / appraise a car offered for sale in Tucson Arizona? Cannot travel myself due to COVID... 

Jack location & ID badge replacement

I have two questions:

1) my 1973.5 911 was restored and the aluminum ID Badge was removed lost, can a replacement be acquired?

2) Where is the proper location to store the jack?
 

roof damage

Roof badly dented by someone jumping on same. Does one reskin? If so, is a new replacement skin available? Or does one replace the clip? Car is in process of restoration and there will be a whole car repaint. Rear and passenger side glass also needs to be replaced. Do I purchase new or try to source same from a donor.

1969 911T doors seem. . .loose when shut

 

So my hinges aren't rusty or loose,the doors shut fine but look very slightly proud of the body when closed.
The annoying issue is the clunking both doors make when the car negotiates any sort of bump in the road.Is this a weird striker plate adjustment or something?Cant see that anything has shifted or anything Thanks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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
