NMNA.
911r listing, which is always fun to watch.
Seems like a lot of e9s on BAT right now, curious if this volume will continue for a little while.
Interesting the owner kept the rear side markers when they did the restoration.

Interesting addition of sheet metal held in by screws in front of A pillars in front wheel wells, wondering if it is hiding anything.
Speaking of screws.... Never seen the VIN plate held in with screws either.....

When it comes to panels gaps; is this how it is supposed to be? Seems to be welded with 2 or 3 strip welds. Doesn't look spectacular if I may say so.
The rest of the body does have great body shut lines by the way, so to me it looks like a skilled body man was at work.

and its a bit thick on the filler on the rear right side:

compare to the left, which i think is more original:

and typical example of bad lifting: this wasn't necessary! (the lower edge of the outer panel gets 'crimped' around the inner sill that sits just behind it; you can't undo that deformation easily):

also done on the front:

It always amazes me that someone thinks they can lift a 3,000lb car by some 19 gauge sheet metal. I get nervous just lifting it by the 14 gauge frame rails. I'm making a cradle to help distribute the load and contain the outward forces.
