    Keeping occupied.

    Despite the COVID lockdown we've finished one of our easier rebuilds, during which time I finally mastered the art of turning inlet 'trumpets'!
    Not a colour I'd choose but I was outvoted 3-1.
    It's a 911T with a manual box instead of the buggy 'Sportmatic'.
    Drives nicely but I still dislike Aubergine even if is a Porsche finish!









    They do look pretty!

    Nice car! Its a pity I can't hear its sound.

    The colour simply matches the period during which is was build, so I think it the right choice. (sorry!). I still remember my "apple green" Renault, I used to drive in in the 70-ties. Even orange was considered an accepted colour for family cars in those days.....

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Hi Huub.
    Indeed you are correct, and we really try and stay with the original Porsche Factory colours with our rebuilds, our next project is 356B Super 90 and it will be 1960 something blue.
    Great colour.

    Beans.
    I really like Porsche Ivory for that period, or perhaps Positano Yellow.

    The Yellow would have my choice, nice and bright, not the usual dreary colours of that time.

    We had a bad aubergine for dinner a while back, and we were sick for two days. So I would have voted for a different color as well.

    Dark green perhaps.
