1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Mon May 13, 2013 2:41 pm    Post subject: Rust on the inner arches Reply with quote

My C2S has hardly seen the light of day. Over the winter I had the suspension upgrade to nearly new Bilstein PSS10 coil overs ex Jackals cars. What a difference, very stable, really happy.

On account of its new stable mate namely a 1970 911T, the 993 has been in hibernation in its airflow bubble.

Here's one of the new car, hope no one minds the picture. The early shape is just so clean.

I have been putting this off for some time but I need to get the inner arches on the car sorted, every corner has rust coming through! I have taken the car to a few different body shops and everyone is advising to have both sides of the car done. Surprised I thought this would be a minor job, being silver no one seems to be happy blending the paint back into the wings.

Not sure if I really want to be spending the money they are quoting. Has anyone suffered similar rust from stone chips and managed to get this sorted without a full windows out spray of both sides of the car?

Seems a bit extreme!

Congratulations on your 911T- that looks stunning! can you put some more pics up somewhere?

Silver is meant to be the hardest colour to match up, which explains their reluctance, but a full glass out job does seem a lot. Are your windscreen surrounds ok? If they needed doing then it may make sense to do the lot?

Dont know

1993 Porsche 964 Anniversary

PostPosted: Mon May 13, 2013 4:07 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Take a look at my post to get an idea. Mine is Polar Silver and I was advised to have both the sides done due to age of car and original lacquer/paint fade. By all accounts solid colours (especially Guards red) are the hardest to match. All the areas for work was identified and broken down cost wise per body section. Thinking I was only having the rear sorted it came as a surprise when an expert gave it a view!

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=83146

In terms of rust/corrosion I had bubbling at the rear wings above the side bumper rubbers, h/lamp rings and some minor corrosion to the underside to the arch lips plus stone chips around headlamps, front PU and extending up the front bonnet.

I have to say it is a great job and the only parts not painted is the roof and rear lid. The depth of lacquer is now consisent.It was a shock seeing it in the paint booth Surprised

I have to admit, its great fun. So different to each other, not without its issues. The T is stripped at the moment getting ready for the body shop to repair some small section of rust, its a cheaper solution than what I have been quoted for the 993.

Here are some other pictures.

1998 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Mon May 13, 2013 6:25 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I had this on the inner edges of the arches on my old Arctic Silver '97 Carrera S. The cure for me was to dramatically write it off and replace it with a freshly resprayed Arctic Silver '98 C4S.

Could argue it was a slightly drastic course of action, but the arches are lovely now and I've never looked back.

Nice 911T Cool

Lovely cars. I looked for a 911T before the 993. I decided on the 993 in the end because I have owned a 911E (many years ago) and had never owned a 993. 911T's seem to have rocketed in price over the last four or five years.
I don't think you've found the right sprayer yet TBH.
The guys I use are magic at paint matching including silvers.
They did a great job on my blue 993 but also on my friends silver Boxster.
On my mates Boxster some @rsehole had carved a nice big Z into the middle of the bonnet, right through the undercoat.
The sprayer said " we will flat back the panel, fill the scratch, match the paint and spray the area of the damage, then lacquer the whole panel.
My mate nearly had kittens, "what? not spray the whole panel" The sprayer said "if we spray the whole panel we will have to match in all the other panels, trust me. if you don't like the finished job, you don't have to pay me."
True to his word, when we collected the car, it was perfect. I knew where the damage was and I couldn't spot it at all.
I think some people just like to take the easy (and most expensive) way out and just spray the whole thing...
ATB
Steve.

I had a 1969 911T in 1984. I paid the grand price of £1,350 for it Thumb Sold it a few months later for £1,500 and thought I'd done well PC

Its always the same, £1500 in 1984 would equate to approx £5000 in today's money. Crystal ball stuff either that or a true passion for the cars and plenty of storage space.

I just wish my father or I had grandfather with a passion for cars. Prices have gone through the roof on the 1970 S and RS cars.

One of my neighbours grandfather left him racing Aston Martin in his will and his father has kept up the same passion and has a 250 Lusso sharing the garage space. Awesome.

Both cars going in for some bodywork then I have tentatively booked a session with a local photographer to get some proper images side by side at a suitably dramatic location. thumbsup

I had this on both my inner front arches on my Arctic Silver 993 - Precision Porsche in Sussex (a VERY long way for you) did an amazing job, they just did the inner wings and blended up, it was a faultless job, totally perfect - so don't worry, it can be done.

The alternative was to do the whole of each wing and blend back over the doors and over the bonnet and scuttle, which is about 1/3rd of a total respray.

Cracking looking car collection you have there!

Absolutely beautiful, I'd have one in my dream garage. worship

The interior light in the 911T is a bit bright though, might make checking the map at night a little hazardous Wink
