Looks like you have a chance to change that dull grey to one of the nicer colors Porsche used. Nice primary colors plus black, white, and the traditional German silver, buy Grey?? What were the original buyers thinking?

Thanks for your thoughts Harlen, but with resale your always get the best and most profitable by restoring the 356 to the best of its delivery when new. PS I don’t see the grey metallic as “dull”
Enjoy Glenn

Very nice work Glenn. If this thread is going to cover the whole project, maybe you should ask the moderators to move it to the Projects Forum.

Click on the little exclamation point button in the top right of the posting window and follow the instructions from there. Moderators aren't always following the threads but that gets their attention.
You've got a great start on your project car. My first 356 was a '57 356A 1600 Super. Fun car and I bought it when it was only 4 years old. That's it in my avatar.
