    1959 718 RSK number 006 metal work restoration.

    We,at the Metal Surgeon have been commissioned to undertake the aluminum restoration of this original 1959 Rsk Porsche prototype built race car.
    The car has been 'restored' in the early eighties ,and after much research we discovered many flaws both obvious and not so obvious.One of the notable modifications made was the larger cut outs in the rear arches for bigger clearance.After a lot of measuring from various datum points we also discovered the body was an inch lower on the right side compare to the left.

    Here's a picture to start off showing the rear arch cut outs.
