Question:

What's that square (yellow) hole cut out on the driver side padding showing the yellow trunk metal in the trunk padding?? What's the purpose & why??? Just curious??

Tom
Nice looking trunk!!!!


So the pad sets fulsh with floor and the carpet will lay flat.
Gary

Y'know, I've never tried to figure out why that "square" is there, & I'm not crawling under the car to figure it out - I'm old y'know. So, what's underneath?

Damn, If I know! I'm old too. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/welcome.png)

Let me put this in better words.

An old dude (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/beer.gif) asks two old farts (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/drunk.gif) to get off their rocking chair to look under the 914.
We now need help from one of you younger guys. Help (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

I have this thing in my head saying that the bump is provisions for the SportO tranny. But I can't remember for sure.

One additional bit of info that I would think is pertinent is the application of the seam sealer. Most cars have it sprayed in, some have it brushed in. I don't know if it's an early/late thing or a 4/6 thing. Detail shots?

Since I'm acutely aware of rear trunk finishes, I've noticed that the "finish" on some of the seams in the trunk of Gary's /6 is very different from those on my /4. Look especially around the areas for the shock mounting points. Attributable to /6 vs /4 construction techniques? Difference in build dates? Change in specification? Difference in the individual who actually "finished" off the trunk seams? We need more original pics of these early cars.

BTW, Gary, what's the build date on your /6? My /4 was built 01/70.

The 4's had the seam sealer sprayed on but the sixes have it gooped on. I guess Porsche didn't have a seamsealer spray rig....so on a handmade car slop it on with your hands. <_<

'1970 Neun vierzehn', I have a build date of 4/70. I think because of my years in Fisher Body that it could be all the above, but thats just my thoughts.

I don't know about sprayed or brushed. Mine looks like it was applied like household caulking - "gooshed" from a tube & lathered.

The round bump for the sporto is towards the front of the trunk. You can see it in this photo.

The small square bump is over the muffler...what could it be?

(IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) i have a '70 /4 and a '70 /6 and the /4 has the seam sealer sprayed on, the /6 had it brushed on.

also, the /6 generally has *much* less seam sealer than the /4.

Well then, maybe my car got the "wrong" engine! :D From the minimalist application of "seam sealer", to its obvious hand application, I must have a /6 chassis. Now, where's my 2 liter "6" engine? (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/lol.gif)
