Should have been half done by now.

Oh man...communication is key. The car has been in the shop for just about 12 months. The shop owner was upfront with me at the beginning they take their time and they do a quality job. The shop has been slow but quality of work and communication has lived up to expectations. Just about finished up; been waiting for the paint to cure/gas out now going for full PPF install then final assembly completed by April/May.

The project grew as I saw the craftsmanship that was going into it. I made a decision to step it up...freshen up the interior (carpets, hardback sport seats, leather headliner, new seatbelts, ect) new euro bumpers, refinished wheels, brake caliper rebuild and on and on.

DC Autocraft in Burbank did a superb job on my car. They removed spot welds, unfolded the drip rails and spotwelded a whole new roof skin sourced from Porsche in place. The skin goes down center of car from front cowl to leading edge of deck lid eliminating sunroof drain holes at upper corners of engine compartment.

Thanks. What was the ballpark cost for the project?

Around 22K including complete repaint (no color change) and I supplied the new roof panel from Porsche. The car was completely disassembled trucked to them as a ôrollerö then trucked back home and reassembled by me which saved a lot of money.
