May 26, 2010 update to the Porsche 911 Carrera project car

Replacing a Whale With a Duck

Very soon we'll be able to mate this... this.

Our Porsche’s transformation is nearly complete, as our ducktail is just about ready to be mounted. The Body Werks spent a couple of days making the new deck lid perfectly smooth and fit as nicely as the factory piece. (Don’t forget, we did start with a used piece that had a few blems.) Once the paint has finished drying, the new deck lid can go on the car.

While the work took a little longer than expected, as a bonus we smell a full-on feature article about this very subject: fitting fiberglass body panels.
