Read the feature on the MCE-restored '89 930 Press Car in 911&Porsche World Mag #349
Please find below examples of recent MCE Porsche restoration projects, completed using our in-house body and paintwork expertise. For more major structural repair we use Celette jigs and fixtures, coupled with a rotisserie for access to those hard-to-reach areas for media blasting to bare metal and applying seam-sealing and surface protection solutions. We have an on-site spray booth so we can minimise bare-metal exposure time and maintain a clean, dry shell between strip and paint application.
