1962 Porsche 356B Restoration Page 2
The entire front half of the floor was removed and replaced with a new section from Porsche Restoration Design. I was lucky the rear floor section was still solid saving money and time is always a nice bonus.

(Needs a bit of repair eh?)
Follow factory welds if possible
I had to remove the door to view (and fix) the rust in the door jam.
A friend brought over his stud welder (is that what it's called?) so we could pull dents. We tried it out on the dent in the nose of the car. The first pull pulled out more than half of the dent! I should have taken a photo BEFORE we pulled the dent, but it was about as round as a basketball.
More on this technique is on Page 4.
