It would be an excellent use of your time to watch this video. Jeff, host of the "Home Built By Jeff" series on YouTube, is based out of Australia, and he just recently finished this backdate and restoration of his air-cooled Porsche 911. In just four minutes, this guy manages to make a reality out of a fantasy most of us have thought about at one point or another. You get to watch him strip a dilapidated Porsche down to almost nothing, and then build it back up again into the RSR-style long-hood clone of his dreams. This video might even inspire you to get off your duff and get cracking on your own Porsche project in the garage. In fact, his whole series is worth watching.
Not only does Jeff, apparently on his own, restore this Porsche to like-new condition, he completes a whole lot of modifications that would leave even the heartiest of DIY-ers baffled. We're quite impressed watching Jeff do his own bodywork, upholstery, welding, machine work, and engine rebuild. Not only that, but to appropriately articulate the full process and film the job for us to see, this guy is a true Renaissance man.
Jeff managed to turn this
Sure, the project has been lumbering on for quite some time, and it would seem Jeff has made restorations like this into his own vocation of sorts, but the work is pretty well up to snuff, and the 911 looks phenomenal when completed. Considering the project was completed from a home shop without a lift or proper paint booth, we're simple stunned at the finished result. Check it out. If you think you can do better, get cracking, and make sure it's on film! What is your take on the purple-over-orange color palette?
