Your Automotive Repair and Restoration Specialist in Colorado Springs Colorado

I have spent my life in the world of Automotive Repair and Restoration. In fact some of my earliest memories are my dad lifting me up, putting me on the fender of the family car, and teaching me what all the parts of the car are and how they work together.  He got that from his dad.  There has been a Rickabaugh working on cars from the “Tin Lizzy” on.

Porsche 911 body kit wide Prototype built by Loren Rickabaugh at Custom Auto Rebuilder

When Joll (the owner of GT Racing) approached me with the idea of developing a new  Porsche 911 body kit wide, I couldn’t resist. I’ve wanting to do something like this for a long time.
As you look at the photos you will see a lot of body filler. It is important to understand that none of these parts are meant to actually go on the finished car. What you are looking at are “Bucks”. Molds are made of the Bucks, and then the real body parts are made in the molds. This will allow GT Racing to reproduce this kit and offer it to their customers all over the world.
Then I can offer you the opportunity to not only have the GTR Wide body kit, but to have the person that built the prototype install your kit on your car.

And now the Porsche 911 body kit wide prototype is off to the mold shop. There molds will be made of all of the fenders, rear flairs , rocker panels, front rocker end caps, and rocker rear end caps.
After the molds are completed www.GT-Racing.com will offer fiberglass reproductions of this kit
Then I can offer you the opportunity to have your GTR Wide body kit installed by the same person that developed the original prototype. This can include having your car taken all the way through to show level paint.
Look forward to serving you!
