New ownership and management.
My father, brother and I will be taking charge of the new company, Restoration Design Inc. and it's daily activites. We drive Porsches and we know Porsches. We know that the customer service/support of the former owner has been lacking and we will strive to improve. Please be patient with us as we move to and set up in a new and modern facility, which should take 2/3 weeks. We will endeavour to ship your parts in a timely fashion, and please do not hesitate to call during business hours if you have questions. Please continue to look at the same website for updates, changes and new parts which we will be adding over time. Looking forward to restoring and building new and lasting relationships in the future.

Thanks

Peter, Mike, and Alex DeJonge

Good Luck on your new venture. & welcome.png

Will Bill be staying on with your company? I know that some members had problems in the past, but I have bought from Bill for years and have nothing but good to say.

RD has always made superior metal pieces and I hope your desire is to continue this.

If you are putting together a Mailing or eMail list, Please include me

all the best,

Bill will no longer be with the company. It is our desire to continue to make superior metal pieces and also rebuild some of the faith and trust that has been lost over time by fellow members

birthday3.gif As this is a new beginning~ Welcome to the party!
I have a few questions if that is ok?

What role do you aim to play? Services-Vendor-Manufacturer?

What is the nature of your business? Steel, electrical, engine.

(I realize what it was in the past- perhaps any new directions or offerings also?)
What can we expect to see soon? Thanks- we will forward you some business.

We will continue to be a vendor/manufacturer
We will be updating the list of parts available and we will develop some new dies to enable us to make available a larger variety of sheet metal parts.

Posted by: Gint Aug 24 2009, 05:52 PM

Right on! I've bought many parts form Bill over the years. I'm ecstatic to see that someone is coming in and will hopefully put forth the resources to keep RD up and running well and into the future.

Good luck!

I've seen way too many companies close their doors in the last year and I want to thank-you for helping to keep this business running.

Posted by: Rav914 Aug 24 2009, 08:44 PM

Congratulations. I'm sure you'll make a success of this.

Question: I placed an order about six weeks ago. Should I re-submit or sit tight and wait for your production run to catch up? Thanks,

Wait till the website is updated with the new contact information. Then you can contact us to confirm that the order is still in the system. We will be in Michigan till the weekend, so we will not be able to take any calls or orders.

I was happy with the service and quality Bill gave me and I was also happy with his prices.

Posted by: naro914 Sep 11 2009, 02:15 PM

Great news!

Bill always made top quality products....all of the replacement parts on Huey came from RD. My only issue with him was that he/they never seemed to answer the phone, and never called back when you left a message. When you actually did get someone to answer, all was good, and he delivered as promised at a very good price.

You will do very well in this market if you:

- Keep up the high quality already established
- Ship on time as promised
- Keep the prices reasonable
- Answer the phone and be honest with everyone. I would rather when I call to be told that it will take 5 weeks to get my part and it be 5 weeks, than be told it will be out in 2 weeks, and it take 5 weeks. Please do not fall into the trap of trying to please everyone. We all appreciate honesty. Bill was honest....just not always responsive!

Good luck!!

Good luck to the new owners. I would also like to know if your moving the operation to Canada? Or staying in the same MI location??

BTW: I am only about an hour drive from RD. I have been at the plant a few years ago & it's a real old bldg. If your moving the big press's out, thats a huge undertaking. Just wondering. confused24.gif

I am new to the 914 World, but bought a passenger longitudinal, inner wheelhouse, and jack post from Restoration Design. I did not have any association or knowledge of them previously, but got my parts in a couple of weeks (they had to manufacture one of them as they were out of stock). They look like great quality. I have not gotten around to welding them in yet, but I think they'll be great. Cheaper than others I've seen.

Posted by: TravisG Jan 23 2010, 07:57 PM

I too, must post a positive experience with Resto Design. I posted in the garage area when I first dealt with them, but I thought it might get better notice on this thread.

I ordered the panels to patch the hell hole area on the outside of the battery box. I ordered them on a Monday, and they were in North Carolina by Friday of the same week! smilie_pokal.gif beerchug.gif

The parts were of great quality and fit very nicely. They needed little to no massaging to work.

A Great company with great customer service cheer.gif

Just my .02 worth, your mileage may vary.

Hey I was just checking out the web site and had a question & a comment.

1st the R. trunk repair section: I have used one of these before for a early
car and it worked out great but I don't see a version of that same piece for
a late (75-76) car? They are shaped different to accommodate the bumper shock
mounts? I need one of these & wonder what my options are?

2nd check out you links section screwy.gif this info is WAY old and outdated.

You can still use the same trunk panel, it will just require some modification.

Posted by: 74914LE Mar 23 2010, 05:13 PM

This is a great service to our 914 community. I recently purchased several items
from the new RD. Same excellent service as I always received from Bill. The
main concern that I have being in the USA, is that the Customs and Shipping Charges are going to be a problem. Hopefully RD will establish a shipping point in the USA, so we can pay the UPS Freight that we have all be accustomed to over the years.

We are offering a new package deal for the rear half of the floor, two seat reinforcements, four seat hinges and four seat hinge mounts.

Any word on the channel the engine rubber gasket goes in. For the circumference of the engine tray? We had exchanged email and you thought soon...

Posted by: peteyd Aug 2 2011, 01:36 PM

I have finished two things in the past couple days.

The peddle cluster reinforcement bracket.

The channel for the engine bay rubber. It is a straight piece that you will have to gradually bend and weld

I have had excellent service from RD. They are well organized and produce great products. Polite, and quick to respond. A word to the wise - buy these panels direct from RD.

Not many of you guys have met us, and we are really still in our infancy with Restoration Design. Although the company has been around for 20 years or so, we feel this is a new beginning for RD and there is much to come.

Here is a little intro video of Mike, Alex and myself (Pete) letting you know whats going on here at RD and whats to come.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHLl3bRkvOs


Heres a 912 that we dubbed the "pink pig" We will use this car in upcoming videos to showcase parts and make how to install videos...we have a 914 lined up for videos too. So look out for those in the future.

And then finally an install of the suspension package on the 912.

Posted by: Tom_T Feb 26 2013, 11:33 AM

Pete -

If you guys are going to the Porsche Swap Meet in Anaheim CA 3/4 Sun. &/or the Porsche Lit Meet in LA 3/3 Sat - this coming weekend, then you should put a topic in the Garage Forum for folks to come out & meet you - in addition to posting stuff here.

Same for Hershey, etc. events. AFAIK it's okay for vendors to post that sort of thing & open houses in the Garage forum - as I've seen McMark, ScottyB & others do it there as vendors.

If not LA/Anaheim this year, then consider it for next year, since it gets you in front of a huge number of SoCal Porsche owners of all models which you serve, out here in the hot bed of Porsche-mania! Plus you can take the family to Disneyland with less crowds the weekdays before/after! smile.gif

Thanks for the heads up. I will start to do this. Im just trying to play by the rules. I know some ppl dont appreciate the constant bombardment of vendor posts in the garage. I dont want to make the same mistakes as some in the past.

Posted by: Tom_T Feb 26 2013, 09:34 PM

I'd think if you're just telling folks where you'll be to meet up, that it would be okay to do that in the Garage Forum.

Others were posting in the Garage whenever they had a new 914 product out, but even that seemed to apply to some & not other vendors as to it not or being kosher.

Any chance of reproducing the center tunnel for replacement? Seems you have all other pieces for rebuilding the interior (floor pans front and rear, center crossmember, etc.) but the tunnel is the one remaining piece I would need- then I could justify buying the remainder of parts instead of building them myself. Thanks for you quality of parts and great service! first.gif

How about bumpers? It's getting hard to find decent ones. And doing a front GT bumper would be awesome.

A couple of wish list items.

One for both sides on the 914.

And a patch panel for the lower back corner on the front fenders. The dirt catcher. But this probably involves doing the entire fender first.

Oh yeah, I second the bumpers.

Could probably be part of your Rear pan kit. Or better yet, the hasps already spotted to the cross member .5's (or complete section)!
Also does the F. floor sections come with the jack doughnuts or are those separate?

I have noticed that you have a very rusty car from your restoration thread. Although that would probably be a good part to make, we have plans for several other 914 parts before the windshield posts. We will be working on the pedal area, front latch and rear suspension components in the upcoming year.

Well if you are taking suggestions...

Any thought of producing the front and rear stock valences. late type for the rear.. good option would be with stock exhaust cutouts or no cutouts so people could adjust for the different exhaust types.

Two Parts suggestions and a question.

The suggestion is a body door handle top repair section, for peeps who don't have repair the whole sail panel.

The 2nd is a inner rocker stiffener kit like engman used to sell.

Question is how far does the AC trunk floor repair panel wrap around? A good pic should do. wink.gif

I dont really want to make a die for a small portion around the handle. It will take away sales for the sail panel.

I have done some drawings for the inner longs similar to the engman kits. I have yet to cut any out. I really just need to make time for that to happen.

I wont know until I have totaled my costs for building the dies. Somewhere between 500-$1000. I know thats vague, but we will be somewhere between the two options on the market.

I have been getting more inquiries about front and rear valences as well, so perhaps it will get boosted up the list.

If you click on the part description all the Canadian parts say "Made in Canada". These are parts that are made by RD in-house.
If it doesn't say where it's made it's not on sale.

Also a good indicator is if the part has primer on it then RD didn't make it.

RD uses a higher quality steel with a special coating (IIRC) that prevents rust, so they don't have primer paint their panels.

Two other panels will go into the press next week probably. Then if they work out fine laser cutting another week. If adjustments need to be made then add 3 weeks at least.

Then 2 more panels need to be tried and those will take another month at least.

Its hard to tell how long, too many variables.

I was holding off on this piece because getting the NAFTA paperwork for the parts to cross the border has been slow. But it seems that people are in need of this part.

This is an exact copy of the original piece. 7/16-20 thread, spot welded stud to the reinforcement plate. You can see I tested the weld until the correct heat was put into it to ensure the welds hold. These were several wacks with a 25 lb sledge.

I have no price point yet either, so if you're interested in this piece either give me a call, or PM.

Rear latch panel is almost complete.

We just need to add to inventory and the website and then we can sell. If you need one quick send me a PM

there is no additional brackets on the panel, therefore you will need to take off the tail light brackets and the latch bracket from your old panel.

The area circled in red also needs to be cut out after the panel is welded into the car. they help keep the panel in shape to aid in the installation.

$265

Our engine tins for the 914/6 are finally ready. They are a tight fit, like the factory pieces. You need to test fit them to your engine before you send them out for paint.

These are made with the galvaneal, so if you don't want to paint them, leave them as is and you will see that our sheet metal does not rust!

Phone in with your orders as the full kit is not on the website yet.
Retail $900

I know end of September, but what day is it this year?

BTW if you haven't been to the RD open house it is worth the trip just to see their operation. Every year they have new presses or mills.
Plus they have Timmy's biggrin.gif

Yes it is our 10 year anniversary! Boy, time flies!

We are under construction currently adding more warehouse space to accommodate all the new dies and parts we are also working on. Due to this fact, the swap meet will be held at our friends at Whailtail. We still plan to have an open house after the construction is complete. We anticipate that to be in October.

I tried the tooling and some components broke. I need to sit back and rethink this part and how to stamp it. Sorry, but this part wont be making it to the market for another month or two.

Right now, door skins are not on the radar. I see too many good doors on the market and at swap meets for the tooling to make sense yet.

Those have been available at Tangerine Racing Products for years. Sales has hardly justified investment in tooling for quantity production.
But I guess that instantly makes my short stack of cut pieces, waiting to be formed, obsolete.
My next sheet metal product was going to be the reinforcing pieces pictured by 914Werke. Those are bound to be a bigger seller than the front bumper mounts. I really thought Restoration Design would have made those before now.

I have some of the reinforcements that Rich 914werke has been asking for. They are just not on the website yet. If you're interested in some give me a call.

I'm sure you'll sell a lot more of the bumper reinforcements than I did. Mine have been marketed more as a backdating piece than a repair panel.
Good to know the other pieces are finally available, but I don't need any right now. One of my project cars will need them though.

We are continuing our development for the 914 model. Here are a few parts that have recently been added to our website. These are made out of 16g sheet metal, which matches the original thickness.

For now people will have to reuse the top portion of this panel. Although we are working on finishing the top half. These are stamped with 18g sheet metal which matches the original thickness

Saw it at Carlisle. Huge time saver compared to repairing the original. beerchug.gif
