  10. In this special image you can appreciate all the different color layers since bare metal to the last ‘Black’ one, … you could imagine how this shell suffered among its life… Josep is a very exigent guy. He likes to check and have the total control of every little detail and minimun aspect of what he is doing. It’s the only way to have success.

I suggested Josep to install the rear chromed bumpers without rubber, as I don’t like it at all, and he was thinking about it referred to the chromed/contrast with exterior silver paint. Here’s ‘Black’ in the repair shop: (It was ready to receive the first prime) These picture were an inspiration source for Josep: 40 years ago in 1971 began this story.

  19. One of the most important decision is to contract the proper professionals to do the best job. Josep chose Salvador (from Talleres Astur) as a mechanic to overhaul the engine and dismantle the car. Josep was very happy to see that ‘Black’ kept up a very good condition without rust evidences, so he could say that this purchase was the correct decision. ‘Black’ was a 911T comfort pack equipped, which 14” Fuchs rims included. Josep prefer to restore these 14”Fuchs, and not going for 15”. Pics with some progress: Josep happy to see how it began. This is Salvador, the Porsche
