Air Cooled Designs - Restoration & Paint



In most cases we strip the chassis and all body panels down to bare metal, so every inch of the car can be repaired to like-new, or sometimes even better, condition.  All gaps are reset to allow for the best factory gaps and tolerances. Before the exterior is refinished, we mask and reseal the car, which is covered with two coats of a two part epoxy primer and allowed to cure naturally for several days. Then after the car is painted and cured, we color-sand and buff the vehicle to ensure the best possible high-gloss paint finish. We only use the highest quality paints on the body and panels. If you have a classic Porsche that needs a repaint,

or a full Restoration, please contact us for a free quote.
