1971 911 2.2 Targa ‘S.Trim full restoration from Alicante (Spain)

Hi guys!!

I’m very proud to share this fantastic restoration thread.

A Soloporsche.com friend, is making an amazing full restoration. The car is a “Matching Numbers” 1971 911 2.2 Targa ‘S.Trim’, and the owner and restorer is Mr. Josep Vicent from Alicante (Spain), though he’s worldwide famous as a musician, film composer and orchestra conduct.

Nevertheless I prefer to show you the pics and translate (to my best knowledge) the thread.

Josep purchased a black 911T Targa, that was almost heading to the scrapyard, from an owner in northern Spain.

The origins of this car are in USA, as It was a US specs car, imported to Europe, through Holland. The car needed lots of hours to be reborn to its perfect condition, but the shell seemed to be quite free of rust. So, It was the best argument for Josep to get the car and begin this awesome project.

Their story began around the first days of June 2011.

Believe me if I tell you that he is a man with a very special touch when doing a restoration like this. Experienced enough to know that something like this could turn into a nightmare, as you know.

In his own words; “you need lots of passion and affection everyday” “this is a blank check task, and everybody knows that adversities will come undoubtedly”

Josep Vicent is deeply in love with his 911, and shares with us every step in the way, and progress made by the specialists around him.

He thought that the car would need a name, and called her ‘Black’ (honouring the shading, matt exterior color she had when they met). Latter we will find out that the car went out the factory in original silver paint.

I am impressed seing how he is controlling every little detail, managing the whole project, with a perfect team work between the different specialists who are taking part in this restoration (bodyshell, paintshop, Porsche specialist mechanic, interior leather upholsterer, and so on...). Former restorations made by him were MB Pagoda, Le Baron, Toyota FJ40, and several classic boats!

Josep has a Porsche classic engagement and is completing a Spanish Porsche Classic Pre73 Registry too.

Here you can see some pics of ‘Black’:

Here you have the Toyota FJ40 fully restored by Josep some years ago: (nice car… and one of the most reliable vehicles you could see)

The car had been parked in a garage for years. She was too dirty, including rat nests that were found in the engine!!

One of the most important decision is to contract the proper professionals to do the best job. He chose Salvador (from Talleres Astur) as a mechanic to overhaul the engine and dismantle the car. A man who was many years head of mechanics at Porsche in Brussels, and who also has commited himself to the project. Josep was very happy to see how ‘Black’ kept up without major rust evidences, so he could say that this purchase was the correct decision. ‘Black’ had originally left the Porsche headquarters with the comfort-pack equipment, including 5’5x14” Fuchs rims. Initially he prefered to restore these 14”Fuchs, not going for 15”...

Pics with some progress:

Josep happy to see how it began.

This is Salvador, the Porsche specialist.

Josep was going to choose a Silver exterior paint color, with lots of doubts about tonality and paint code. He played around with the idea of using Slate Gray, similar as Steve McQueen’s 911, … or perhaps the early 356 silver, aluminium inspired

Difficult choice, night after night he kept lurking about an ultimate silver… Some examples:

img2377f.jpg

img2378q.jpg

Users gave him some advices about colors:

porche91124targag.jpg

But the most important was going on around the engine rebuilding proces...Here is a pic with new cylinders and pistons. The engine was in very bad shape...

Incredible to see this!!!!!!!!

‘Black’ had the factory original Porsche oil filter installed yet! after 40 years!!!!

Josep tried to share his decisions with everybody. Here’s a picture asking for advice about exterior paint:

img2428o.jpg

Josep purchased a butterfly center horn for the original steering wheel:

Look at the early horn center button, and the new black leather with the Porsche crest embossed to replace the old one:

Josep found this on ebay:

The original rear muffler cover trim (similar to Steve McQueen’s 911) thinking about installing it… not sure… perhaps he would present it at the end of restoration to check…

tapatraseraescaperearmu.png

In Steve’s car looks like this:

exlemansporsche911s.jpg

He was a bit confused to see how the Slate appears in a Targa: A bit boring?

patricks.jpg

Example of Slate code 6001 in an early 911:

6001911.png

He purchased on ebay the original 1971 911 Porsche Blaupunkt original autoradio.

blaupunkt.png

How to combine the exterior and the interior? Natural brown leather, or perhaps red…?

img2454u.jpg

As a curiosity, he found this picture (a 911 finished in Slate Grey with red stripes)

img0282wo.jpg

Nevertheless he likes all black leather interior, but this other combinations too:

img0261s.jpg

pastedgraphic4d.png

Josep wanted to share with us an old newspaper article where his mechanic Salvador received a “Porsche Spain Prize”

More images in the important process of obtaining the final color:

img2464mn.jpg

img2471u.jpg

img2461he.jpg

img2462q.jpg

img2463ag.jpg

img2473hn.jpg

Lots of test: solid, metallic, different Slates…. Silvers…

He did a complete combination task including interior natural leather tones combined to exterior slates and silver

img2476t.jpg

img2477z.jpg

At the end of June, Josep ‘decided’ to go for Slate combined to natural tan leather:

Another pic found of an early 911 in a beautifull grey:

Josep ready to start up!! hahaha....

img2498lz.jpg

Almost totally dismantled, Black was ready to go to the body repair shop to be sand blasted:

img2521m.jpg

img2513s.jpg

img2517e.jpg

During the process of dissambling, they noticed 4 different paint color sleves! Yvory, black, red, blue,… silver…

The original paint was silver!!!!

So….. when Josep could see the original Silver after dissambling the interior carpet, he had a smile and thought, that ‘Black’ really deserved to be reborn as a Silver 911!!!! With the original Silver Glasurit code to match those metallic early tones…

The problem solved itself, Black had asked for his own color...

img2504f.jpg

img2510pq.jpg

img2511z.jpg

img2512r.jpg

img2495a.jpg

The classic Targa bar comparing the original Silver interior:

img2508i.jpg

Dashboard was sent to the upholstery shop to be restored

img2501x.jpg

Here you can see the final combination chose by Josep. A Silver exterior paint, and the black/tan leather interior, he explains to the followers about the purity of basic materials:

img2522z.jpg

There is another problem: the engine cylinder heads need to be replaced!!!

Bad luck…

Color could be: SILVER METALLIC GLASURIT 90-E ‘two compounds’.

Some pics from a ’71 911 in this color:

img2005v.jpg

img2018g.jpg

img1997d.jpg

img2030z.jpg

The same car in the cabin:

img1960pl.jpg

But finally Josep decided to change…… and here is the chosen: An old Silver used in the first Gmund 356 owned by Dr. Ing. Ferdinand Porsche, now he started the proces of finding that specific paint code

img2526pe.jpg

img2527m.jpg

(He renamed the car as ‘Silver Black? Ha ha)

sharing these pics of nude ‘Black’:

After dissambling, dismantling, cleaning, sandblasting, etc, the car was ready to go back to the repair bodyshop.

An small rust focus appears, that will be repaired with a new panel welded.

Look at the driver’s door how it looks after an old bad repairing job.

Josep is enjoying every detail and is living the whole process as a part of his life!

img2637d.jpg

I suggested him to install the rear chromed bumpers without rubber, as I don’t like it at all, and he was thinking about it referred to the chromed/contrast with exterior silver paint.

This is a fantastic report indeed, thanks a lot!

I'm wondering how you came to Carpassion? From my view it's anything but usual that a Spain is registering at a german forum to post a complete report...

Anyway, thumbs up! And hopefully we'll see more!

Josep asked us what we think about this rear defense:

img2697ps.jpg

Nobody liked it!hahahaha

3 photoshoped pics about the rear badges. Josep was thinking about deleting the 911 emblem. As He is man who likes to share with other people, soloporschers told him to maintain all the badges.

img0314ih.jpg

img03142.jpg

img031422.jpg

Some of us told him to place golden rear emblems instead of silver plated ones, as they were period correct.

More pictures and more progress!! Black’s bodyshell has been restored and repaired. She received primer and now she’s ready for paint! In the paintshop, they’re using high quality materials (primer, paint, coat) and now they have to do a very fine work to complete this body restoration and assembling the rest of the car. The restoration is going on very quick ‘cause Josep Vicent is managing perfectly every step of the project and controlling the timing, periods, and the rhythm between different professionals involved in it.

We usually see many long time restorations. Josep knew his target and prepared it meticulously.

He ordered a new set of Fuchs 6x15 rim set after deciding to reinforce the car’s STrim, front bumper is a 2.2S one.

Then he decided to sell the early 5,5x14 Fuchs rim set to anyone who could appreciate them in other Porsche…After reconsidering, he decided to keep also the original set, “Matching numbers” with the car.

(The rear grill was too damaged to be restored, so Josep decided to go for a new one)

The next days the schedule will be:underbody gravel protection, bonet interior, and floor, interior area paint, engine lid, and front hood adjustment....

Look at the bodyshell: feels like silk....

Josep is quite a perfectionist. He likes to check and have total control on every little detail: “Direct contact and comunication with everyone of the specialists involved is the only way to succed”, he says. “we need to keep up with deadlines without rushing the project”

Here some pictsures in meetings with specialists.

Historic details were sandblasted

img2853oy.jpg

As he told us, the new Fuchs set was coming. He purchased them from an spanish Porsche rallye champion legend: Antonio Zanini (European Champion driving Porsche and Ferrary....)

They had an interesting meeting and Josep was very pleased to receive several advices from this fantastic Porsche expert. He found out Zanini was a music lover...hahaha

The rims were in black finish, needed to be polished:

An answer from the Porsche museum gives the finall push to the paint codes...

"The silver color of the museum cars is Porschesilber 980, made from Sikkens. All Historic museum cars (550 Spyder, 356 Nr. 1 (K45-286), 356B Carrera GT) are painted in this color. Additionally that color is the same color for BASF/Glasurit and is named Por 936 and the number is 91109590380936."

what a great job! very exciting to see such passionate pictures :-))!

But the car won't end up in "new condition", i think it will get to "way better than new condition"

Probably Porsche himself would be proud O:-)

I'm posting Josep's comment:

'Hi guys! The new 15" Fuchs rims are back, after the polish and paintjob. It's not an easy task, due to some difficulties as polishing end corners with the machine.

You ought to achieve to bare aluminum and follow polishing...

Just finished they look glossy, but going by time they get matt finish... pure materials!

I love them!:D:D

Look at the wheels... we can admire them now

By the way, I couldn't resist the temptation to dress Black with one wheel'
