Hello everyone,

I am new to the club, I hope to meet some of you soon :)

 

I am looking for a shop in the lower mainland (or even a bit further is ok) that will do restoration on interior and exterior of a 911SC (a lot of body shops I've talked to just can't take the project). I can give you more details but basically needs new carpet/headliner, some very minor body repair, full paint, new trim/seals etc…

 

Mechanically she is running beautifully, but is starting to show her age, I'd really like to find a place that won't mess this up. Even if their Porsche experience is limited, as long as they take great pride in their work they do I think it will be ok.

 

If anyone can point me in the right direction or has advice for me, I really appreciate it!

You might try Integra Collision on Clark, if you haven't already called them. I've never had any work done there, but I go past there most days and their lot is always full of Porsches of every vintage.

[Update]

Hi Owain, so I went to chat with them and it's really the same story I get from all the body shops I've visited so far. All of the old Porsches still there are projects left over from the previous owner (who apparently loved working on them), but now is under new ownership and they only focus on ICBC claims. They were very nice and we just chatted a while, recommended I look for smaller shops doing custom projects further out from the city.

 

Anyways I'll keep at it.
