this is a fairly straight body but as you can see has had a left rear quarter panel installed and not such a great job. At least years ago they installed factory new ones! (notice the goop under the left tail light cavity

As you can see in the pictures, we will have to replace the butchered trunk hinge cups, replace part of the frame where the floor pan triangle on the right attaches. The driver's floor has been replaced with one of our excellent reproductions, and the right front fender well has had a hole repaired

Will "factory new" front fenders and quarter panels ever be offered by anyone? I'm guessing that if a person wants a restoration he/she has to go to a shop that will fab the parts like those shops on YouTube.

besides the rust, this one had been hit on both sides and quarter panels spliced in. Notice the wad at the right rear of the rear trunk. Not too good a job repairing this one years ago, even though they used new factory parts

finished the floor pan and reconstructing the rear firewall. Although we have pieces for the inner and outer firewall, this one did not warrant installing them, so we made small patches

well we have been steadily working on this car, have had it repainted, and are starting the final assembly. Please remember we are making this a driver quality car, NOT a restoration, and doing it on a budget much like the home hobbyist would do, for example: We had a set of gold letters in inventory used, but no chrome, so we chose to install them, knowing that they were incorrect for the year, but looked very good with the ancona paint color!! (reminds me of my cub scout years!

Thank you Bob, even though we are doing this on a home hobbyist budget, we will still be over 20 thousand in the car, and that is starting at 3500 for the car and parts!!! But wow what a car we will have when through, a 914!!

What paint brand/color do you use to restore the front buckets? They look great.

We actually use duplicolor chrome paint, really sprays well. Of course important to prep the surface first.

Doc, this thread begs the question: what process does a manufacturer go through to acquire sheet metal for its car's skin and interior?
