    I saw that white car at Laguna Seca two weeks ago. They had a little placard in the window calling it a 1969 911TR, which I found a little, umm, odd... but it is a beautiful car.

    I love narrow lightweights, can't wait to see this build.

    Good timing . . .

    Metal work coming along great. The parcel shelf and seat backs are in. Floors will be done tomorrow. A pillars and rockers finished. The Restoration Design panels fit really good. We made the vertical piece at the back/bottom of the rear window that attaches to the parcel self as it's not available yet and you have to cut up a whole car just to get that piece.

    We're using just a small part of the piece I bought from RD around the pedal area. It's a bit of a waste of a replacement piece but you only use what's needed. There's no more donor cars to cut up anymore as everyone's saving them now.
