The Porsche that James Dean made famous. Or infamous. From CPR – masters at restoring Porsches.

The Art Of Blending Craftsmanship & Technology – CPR

We do our best to not only use our extensive knowledge of Porsche factory techniques but also the new technologies that are becoming available every day in order to put out the best product possible.

For example, everyone knows that prior to 1974 Porsches were not galvanized and suffer from rust which in many cases can be extensive. Much like building a house, the unibody of a Porsche is its foundation. If you don’t first start with establishing complete integrity of the unibody, the restoration will never be right and the value of your investment will be greatly diminished.
