Angus & Alan in a 1973 Porsche 914 2.0 @ The SLS Rally
The SLS was founded in 1952, as a 24-hour event between the Netherlands and Luxembourg, and has since evolved into a modern multi-day regularity rally that has remained close to its origins. Professionally set out, with a sporty and friendly atmosphere on the way, the SLS route runs through the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, France and Belgium. It uses strict time schedules, requiring drivers to maintain an average speed under 50 km/h and apply all the usual route instructions of modern regularity rallies.
Alan Pettit navigated with Angus Watt driving aiming to capitalise on their gains and experience of their last few rallies together. It also gives us the chance to test out the upgrades that we fit to our cars and then can supply to our customers with the confidence that we know they [...]

Where rust and damage are eradicated and your dream paint job becomes reality
PERFECT FINISH STARTS WITH FIRST CLASS PREPARATION
We are proud to say that we have our own in-house bodyshop and trained, full-time staff to run it. The facility is exclusively for classic Porsche restoration, although occasionally we carry out work on other exclusive marques.
We operate only to the very highest of standards, using top-quality materials, consumables and not least paint. Invariably we remove all relevant windows, doors, bumpers and so on before painting and masking is carried out with meticulous attention to detail.
Unsurprisingly the main problem with many older Porsches is structural corrosion. The company, perhaps more than other manufacturers, paid considerable attention at the time to protecting its cars against rust, but neglect and sometimes poorly repaired earlier accident damage can cause all manner of problem. Don't forget that many of the cars that we see now are well over half a century old!
There are two main types of corrosion that affect the longevity of any paint job.
The worst perforates the metal, often leaving gaping holes in the painted surface. The only way to remove it is to completely cut out the affected areas and then to weld in fresh steel. Great care must be taken not sim [...]
