Amazing isn't it? It all started out with some pictures of a chrome BMW and a few PMs later the car was on its way. He's been painting for how many DECADES? Plus he's got a 951 so I know he'd take great care of her. The work they do is OUT OF THIS WORLD

Nice thread pal. Glad to see the car is making progress. I'm sure those guys will do a good job. Oh, tell Carmen Electra we all said hi! Happy New Year and be safe over there too!!

Takin' it off S L O W L Y.........

All the tumbler holes are going to be welded up, door handles shaved. They'll open by remote and if I have a power failure then I'll just open the hood and replace the battery or if I lock the keys in it just crawl through the hatch.

These guys don't mess around do they? Kyle and Brooks Martin are the great guys who own the shop. So this three man crew will be soley responsible for the breathtaking product you'll see in the months to come.

Pics are taken by Lynn thanks buddy

Thank goodness I knew what it looked like before, or I'd be asking how much you wanted for parts!

Martin brother's Paint & Body, owners Kyle & Brooks Martin. Small shop, perfect results in Asheboro North Carolina. Shipped my car to them after a 5 minute conversation with Brooks. Lynn (GOSANE) works there as well - I've never felt more comfortable about having someone work on her.

Thanks swifty! Take an 86 944 GTR, mix in a few 924 GTP bits with GT3 seats and low drag mirrors and that's what's she'll look like!
