Picked up an 88 911 back in June. Haven't done much with it since. Just sold my M3 last week, so now the garage space is freed up.
The car was found locally. It spent it's short useful life up in Lake County. The original owner put 99,000 miles on it in about 12 years then blew the engine. The car has sat ever since. The body is in 100% original condition. There are actually no dings in the metal. No rust either.
I've got a rebuilt G50 trans for it. And a heavily modified engine. The engine case started as a Carrera 3.2, same as what this car came with originally. But is now a high compression, twin plug, carbureted 3.6. 370hp at the crank.

I'm not going to do anything to the car as far as paint. Leaving it as is. I am going to get the wheels redone in the RSR finish.

Only hand work on this paint. It's actually faded through in a few spots. Nice patina'd look though.
I clay barred and hand waxed a fender back when I got it. It comes back okay.

The only thing I'm going to do the the suspension for now is rebuild the rear trailing arms. They're a lot easier to remove with the motor and trans out.
As far as body goes, just a duck tail instead of the whale tail, nothing else.

Duck tail is the right call. So many different directions you could go with this car, but I like where your plans have it heading. Good luck!
