    Restoring 307407

    Hello everyone, I am about to start the (gulp) journey of restoration of 307407.

    In the coming days we (they) will begin disassembly to tackle first the rusted floors/ tank supports, then repaint with in parallel engine and drivetrain overhaul.

    The car is now black but was originally Irish Green. I suspect it has been autocrossed in the past. I am wondering what (if any) modifications the previous owners did to it. It was last started 16 years ago.

    As I begin to gather parts and pieces for the work, I have the following 2 questions:

    1) I will need to order floors and tank support. I understand that there are 2 options: Stoddard and Restoration Design. Are they equivalent?

    2) does anyone have a list handy of all the gaskets that I will need to order for this window out job? I know Porsche parts are preferred for the windshield, where else to source the remaining? Is there anyone who has done this type of work that can share a list of parts numbers?

    My car is a 1967.

    I am not planning to go all out and have a concours level car, as a matter of fact I plan to “improve” and “modify” where appropriate.

    Thank you in advance and greetings from Texas.
    Andre

    Good luck, friend!!

    It's a long and arduous process, but you have saved yourself some headaches by being less meticulous in originality. Best of luck!! Keep us posted.

    Thanks, patience will be key.

    Still uncertain where to get the floors.

    Your best bet for seals is to go all Porsche. I buy mine from Gaudin. You'll find their prices are quite good.

    I've been pleased with the metal I've purchased from RD and their service is great. I'm in Austin if I can help.

    +1 on Porsche seals. I learned the hard way.

    Thanks all - 2 chiming in on the Porsche seals is enough for me to have a preference.
    @livefromNY - thanks for the offer.
