Charlotte, NC Body Shop Recommendations

I am looking for a body shop recommendation that can fairly access my hell hole rust and make repairs to make sure the car is structurally safe.  Not looking for a full restore it, I just want to drive it and have fun.  Any help is appreciated!

Recreating Irish Green Paint

My 914-6 had Irish Green (L60E) paint from the factory.  For restoration, how can this color be recreated in modern paint?

914 roll cage

I am having a 1974 914 rebuilt for me.  Having modifications to engine, suspension to run Autocross and PCA DE.  My question is do I have to install a roll cage to be eligible to run in DE events?

1975 914 Bumpers

I have a great lay loved 914 and I even like the large, black 1975 bumpers. However, in 1988 a prior owner resprayed the tops gloss black, which has now badly crackled. I tried removing with mineral oil with no luck. Has anyone else faced this problem.....any suggestions? Thanx in advance!

Replacement rear trunk floor

Model: 914, Year:1975, Mileage:?, Type of use:Street use only
I am replacing the floor pan on a 75 914. The repair pan for the trunk is for 74 and earlier cars. I am going to back date the bumpers. Can I get some measurements of how deep the trunk pan should be on the back tail light panel. Thanks

VIN tag

Model: 914, Year:1974, Mileage:58,000, Type of use:Street use only
I am near completion of a ground up restoration of my '74 914 2.0. I damaged the VIN decal on the driver's side door jam while trying to salvage it before stripping the paint a few years ago. Is it possible to get a new one of these from Porsche? I have the original one and the title as proof of ownership. Can you tell me what other restorers done about this maintaining this decal? Thanks.Dennis

I need to find a good body shop

Model: 914, Year:1972, Mileage:150k, Type of use:Street use only
The driver side front fender was damaged and needs some body work. I took it to a few shops here in town and one owner said he could fix it by cutting it out the broken fender and welding a new one in. Long story short, I got the fender but I'm not trusting these shops to do the work. Is there anywhere I can take this fender and get the work done right or can I just have a good shop fix the fender as is? I can't find a shop that will do the work right and for a reasonable price in this area (Liberal, KS).

I'm trying to find a chassis number on my World 914/6. I have a new replacement tag for the headlight support area, but I need to know what info goes on the tag. Vin and chassis numbers? Or something else? Please advise. Gary Altenbach 707 5395830
