I'm not sure if it flew by or not...too busy at work to get things moving.
The car was soda blasted and if an are was cleaned that had seam sealer, it will be replaced. What part of the cargo area interests you?
Here are a few more pics.

I didn't like the idea of tipping the 968 axis with a rare color....

so, I went halfway between Tahoe and Cobalt Blue.

Default First time in the sun

A few shots today outside. Some pictures were with overcast and the last is bright sunshine. The car will be color sanded and buffed next week.

Yes, 1993 964 30th Anniversary color. It's possible that a 968 could have been painted Viola, I only have this picture to go by...Look upper left. Is that a euro 968?
