Paintwerks tech session draws a crowd

Dave Zimmer, long-time Milwaukee Region member and owner of Paintwerks in West Bend, hosted a tech session for members of the Milwaukee and Fox Valley regions on Oct. 21. The focus for the day was what to look for on the body of a used 911 before purchasing. Dave also described the techniques he uses to repair body damage and how he preps a car before it goes into his paint booth.

And, in case you missed it in the e-Brake news sent by PCA to all members who have an email listed as part of their membership record, read the fantastic article Al Wagner wrote about Dave Zimmer's transformation of a 912 into a road-course worthy machine.
