1968 lhd that was tangerine.
Dismantled in 2010, and then stripped by Envirostrip.
It was then partially started and then ended up coming to me 11 years later
One long shopping list later, and I have a weld together meccano Porsche.
First job was to sit the new floor under and do a trial build with screws, just to see what fits before I take it completely apart.
Trial build completed. Looks like a car, now to dismantle it and let the fun begin.
Torsion tube is scrap
Rh inner wing and inner sill
All the same repairs needed on the lhd
And trial fitting of the new longitunal, and tank support panel
Torsion tube repairs
Inner sill repairs and new silencer
Seat pan back in
Floor pan in
Front end welded up
Inner / Outer sills on and kidney bowl
I took a chance on the new Dansk scuttle, and the fit is very good
Wing looked a bad fit to the door, but, it’s a second hand door, and full of lead
It just shows the “production tolerance” on these early cars!
Wing is spaced with a washer at the moment, it closes up nicely with the thin seal!
Other panels used are Dansk, and restoration design.
Worst panel fit wise was the tank support panel, (Dansk) but I know where to hit these to make them fit

Could you now buy a new shell, or at least buy the panels and assemble one on a jig?

Boxster 987 Gen II 2.9
It needed mending, just had to bite the bullet!
I’ll post more detailed pictures up of repairs to say the front scuttle air box, and rear bulkhead
