1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

The Targa Test Drive

As the fog cleared, and the roads started to dry, the sun started to appear so we thought it was time to give her a little run out to Needham Lake to take a couple of nice pictures.

The return of the Porsche to our workshops

We eagerly awaited the return of our freshly painted Porsche to the worksop early today. Sure enough, at 3pm, she arrived back safe and well from our paint-shop in Needham Market, looking stunning in Guards Red.

Asa and Tommy have a busy few days now putting her back together ready for a full valet and detailing scheduled for later in the week.

Porsche 911 Carerra Targa seat piping replacement at Bridge Classic cars

It is always important to look sympathetically at any part of your restoration.

We could easily retrim the Porsche seat but the patina of the seat is lost.

Generally the piping of the seat bolster gets worn or rubbed through and in this instance because the original seats are in lovely condition we only changed the piping itself.

This is a lot of work in itself as the whole seat has to be de-constructed but as you see the result is worth it.

Porsche in paint…

With all repairs now complete, the Porsche is looking lovely in pink but will look even better in Guards Reds.
