    The reflective tape on the front of the filler tube is a nice touch:

    Chassis: aluminum rear decklid and license plate panel

    The rear-most part of a 911 is a fine place to try to save a little weight. That's why I went with an aluminum decklid and license plate panel - both reproductions. I acquired the decklid from the same guy in Germany who supplied the flares. At that time he was advertising on German eBay and planned to start a website called ST-Manufaktur to sell his wares but it never materialized. I think the same parts are now available from multiple sources, but I couldn't tell you for certain. I know the prices I paid are a fraction of what I see now!

    Packing for international shipment was not the guy's strong point. The upper left corner of the decklid was bent:

    Chassis: Glasurit single-stage #22 paint in Lindgruen/Chartreuse

    David C. Treichel Auto Refinishing of Sherwood, Wisconsin did the fine metalwork and paint. No words are necessary to describe the incredible attention to detail and phenomenal results:

    No one will ever see it from this angle, but it was still important to Dave:

    Chassis: weatherproofing

    I asked Aaron and Dave to pay careful attention to corrosion proofing through a light, judicious, targeted application of underbody schutz, plus body cavity wax and seam sealer. I don't plan to drive it on Chicago's salt-encrusted and pothole-riddled wintertime streets, but it won't be a fair weather garage queen, either.

    Chassis: targeted application of dynamat extreme sound deadening mat

    It's still loud when driving down the road, but not over the top.

    Chassis: RSR style front strut brace

    I have to chuckle a bit when I see aftermarket strut braces on modern sports/sporty cars. Those chassis are already so stiff... But on a 45 year old Porsche now equipped with modern tires, I suspect a strut brace is really working hard.
