I'm revisiting this build. I'm calling it the restoration of a Porsche 934.
The Eagle eyed among you will notice (apart from a few bits that have fallen off and some spray splatter on the background from its storage in the garage it doesn't need much restoration, well I have a cunning plan, I'm going to age it quite drastically, maybe have it languishing in a yard resting on bricks with the engine on a pallet covered by a tarpaulin, maybe even with a tree or Bush growing out of the car.
Then I am going to do a full restoration of it, that's the plan anyway.

Interesting idea! Three 'builds' from one kit.

Good luck.

OK so made a start on the pallet for the 934 engine, bit more work to make it more realistic but quite pleased with it so far.

Hi all more work on the 934, first pic is my rendition of the tarpaulin over the engine (its just a bit of printer paper) second pic will be a couple of slabs of concrete when finished.

Hi Ken
Well you've certainly come up with an unusual plan. Looking forward to seeing it come together.

Salt on the rust ? liking this a lot Ken. If the pallet is anything to go by this should be a fantastic build and idea.

Started the rusting on this (still a long, long way to go) it a fine line between beliavable and too far quite pleased with the start I know some of the rust looked very granular and there is not enough colour variation but it's definitely a good starting point.

I've decided not to have a tree growing out of it instead it will be a bramble (undecided whether winter spring or summer with nice juicy berries on it) im finding it very difficult to decide on the final setting, I was thinking of having the bonnet chucked on the roof with gouges and scratches or as it is now but I could sling the doors I could sling anywhere in the car or maybe even have one laying on the ground no where near the car almost over grown.

OK so now the RE20 is done this is back out as you can see the tree is back and I've started on the tree and dirtied up the car a bit more.

Hi all well I've done away with the tree and I'm calling the destruction of this 934 done, so now onto the restoration.

Made a start on cleaning up the body panels, gave it a coat of primer to see how bad it looked. Quite pleased, yes it still needs some work but a good start.

Certainly better than this.
