Still restoring after all these months.....

Regular followers of the blog may recollect previous stories on friend Warren's restoration of his Porsche. In summary his daily driver Porsche Targa failed to proceed over a year ago due to a piston ring failing. Warren decided to have a full rebuild of the engine and gearbox at Autowerks on the Central Coast of NSW and to take the opportunity to restore the car at the same time - but incorporating his own personalisation ideas.
 Like most big restoration projects it has gone way over schedule on time and budget on money but the end is in sight and he is still talking about it being ready for the Porsche Club NSW Concours in September. We shall see.
The engine rebuild is only about to start but the body is coming together. The upholstering has been a disaster and Warren is finding it very difficult to get  repossession of the seats and steering wheel from the upholsterer. So there are still a few bridges to cross. Here is the car as it stands now. Onwards and upwards....
