Default Status of Dean Jeffries Porsche

Good morning, how are you? Did you ever complete the restoration of the car, can you send me a link or some photographs. I am presently restoring a 1965 Porsche 356 and I am installing the Jeffries Iron Cross torsion bar covers similar to what Dean originally did. I find this first Outlaw 356 very interesting and would love to see how it looks today and what has happended with it.

Thanks,
Shane Balkowitsch

Default Detailed History Behind this very Historic Dean Jeffries 356

Jack Walters has posted many photographs of his Dean Jeffries 356 and I am sure anyone who loves the legacy of this car will appreciate it, it is below, everyone should tip their hat to Jack and his efforts on restoring this wonderful piece of automotive history.

Long live the Dean Jeffries 356, The Grandfather of all Porsche Outlaws.

Default Did the Iron Cross Outlaw Torsion Bar Covers Survive

I have to ask, one of cool unique parts about this build was the fabricated Iron Cross Torsion Bar Covers that Dean Designed for this car back in the day. Did they survive and will they be used in the final build? I bought a pair of replicas for my Outlaw and I would sleep better at night knowing that the original ones that were on the car somehow survived the past 50 years?

Thanks,
Shane Balkowitsch

The silver paint and four coats of clear were sprayed on the car this past weekend. We need to wait and let everything cure before it can be buffed out and be REALLY shiny but its pretty slick already. Long term project is slowly coming together..

I'm sure your Glasurit mix is a state secret, but any chance of publishing the mix? Mine is a Mercedes blend and I like the weight of the flake, but even in the photos the tint and grain looks just superb. I hope to be able to see it in person. A Registry WCH or Dana Pt. Concours, maybe? Shoo-in for BoS.

This is very cool, how come you didnt have the interior bead blasted instead of umpteen hours of brushing .etc etc...?????
Cant wait to see the finished product.

When you blast the interior of a car you have to live with stuff drifting out of nooks and crannies for years afterward - plus it is hard to control - you might wind up blasting something you really don't want blasted like the wiring harness.

In retrospect after over 100 hours of working with a grinder and cup wheel I might have done it a bit differently but I'm pretty happy with the result. I did have the underside of the car blasted but there was a lot of handwork still - areas like the body shell over the transmission and behind the front torsion bar. I don't have a rotisserie but if I had it to do over again I'd sure invest in one.

As for the Glasurit paint formulation - I don't have it but I'll see if I can get it - I haven't seen the car in two months and I'm due to drive down for another visit (and more pictures!) - I'll keep everyone posted on the progress. Thanks for all the interest and kind words.
