#027 Gets some much needed new paint

by on May.05, 2011, under Restoration Projects

 One thing PORSCHE didn’t do was put nice paint jobs even on thier top-of the line racers. They used the “cheap” paint figuring that most racers would get painted every season to accomodate new sponsors and or new ownwers, but what if  the car was only raced  twice in  30 years?  With a galvanized chassis and little to no primer the paint has begun lifting and flaking off  from no adheasion. Well we wanted #027 to look just as good as it did the day it was air-freighted from Weissach to LA  for it’s origional owner Otis Chandler. He ordered it in a special Color called “Vintage Racing Blue” and once in California added his personal touch of striping. So in the coming weeks we will strip down to the bare chassis and prep the metal with modern primer and re-spray with an exact color match!
