OK, it's about time to start some REAL documentation of these original cars! This'll be a nailed thread. If this one works out OK, & it's for rear trunks(boots) only, we'll expand to other areas. This is for the person who's trying to determine if the boot is correct, comparing to other years, etc. I expect some transitional differences in the early years, so disagreements may ensue - we're here to learn, so who cares. Show use what you have & it doesn't have to be concours. I'm going to try to keep this somewhat calendar-based.

Here's what we're looking for first: 914 four & six boots from start of production through 1971. If you have photos, send them. If possible, show the unsulation pad also. Multiple pic's OK.

Show us what you have!

The insulation pad(wots it supposed to insulate against? heat (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) noise (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) ) is a pale yellow-beige foam material that is totally unremarked and not deserving of using up my digital camera "space" (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/poke.gif) Subsequent to the above photo, it has been re-installed by a highly competent Porsche technician, who further re-installed the "mouse fuzz" carpet pad. If you would like me to post pictures of the aforementioned 914 "parts", we will have to wait for my digital camera to be returned by the factory, as it has needed some "service" work.

Ahh, but it DOES make a difference! As you'll see in the ensuing years 914's, there is a difference of opinions on which is correct. Besides, we want anyone seeking information to get the full package. So, jack too!

Geoff,

Thanks for a great post - whose car?

I'll be nailing another "Level 1" for 72-74 cars, so I'll eventually move your post there. Thanks!!!!! Pat

OK, now for the next group - 1972-1974. Please include insulation pads in your photos - this could get interesting. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/icon_bump.gif)

These photos are really a great way to show the trunk Pat. SO MANY times the photographs are taken from behind the car and the rear trunk wall hides the most critical lowest portions of the trunk where the any damage can be hidden. Your trunk is awesome and shows all the detail.

Thanks for the compliment, Jeff.
One thing I'm trying to do by showing my rear trunk is that it has the short foam piece & it's a fairly late '72. Per Brett Johnson's book I shouldn't have it - should be a full, black foam pad (per his book). Brett's book is a VERY valuable source, but you can't take it as gospel for all things. This non-club is a far more reliable source of originality info & I want to make certain that the nuances are documented.

Now, who HAS a '72 with the full foam pad? If you do, please send pic's & we'll sort it out. Your photos are for documentation - it doesn't have to be a perfect trunk. Let's see the '73 &'74 cars too.

This is my 1970/6s trunk. As many shots as I thought you might want before bordem. Yes I know, I also saw the spot in the right corner will address right away. Why two colors of paint? Camera setting!

This is why I wanted to do this!!!!!! Thanks Gary!

Everything in place, so the newbie can see what they're up against - beautiful. If it had been filthy, I wouldn't have cared - the parts are there. Love it!

Are all early 914's yellow? Not that I dislike it, but red really is better (heh, heh).

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?
