Nice pictures Todd,
Two things of note.
1. Notice the wiring harness running along the floor of the trunk, up against the rear bulkhead where a lot of water can collect. Early models ran along the rear shelf. When was the change over? (Mine is like yours Todd)

2. Notice the aluminum rivets holding the white roof top storage bracket. Early models were fastened by 2 10mm bolts. When those brackets break on later cars, where do you get the rivets? When was the change over?

Not another rivet quest! Don, only 1 side on mine has the rivets, the other is bolts like you stated. I guess somewhere along the line one side was replaced.

Tod, I checked my '76 parts car and my '75 and they have those rivets. Or are they? They can also be plugs. Whatever they are, I have never taken them off.
My '74 parts car has the 10mm bolts with a square nut welded to the backside of the engine bulkhead. That seems to be same with all the earlier cars.
If your 10mm bolt is fastened to a removeable nut, then sometime in the past, the rivet (or plug) was drilled out to replace a broken clip.
Is there anyone else who can add to this?

I'm guessing it's a 75/76 thing because the rear shelf got blocked by extra braces with the addition of rubber bumpers.

VERY nice trunk! Paint the bottom!

Number in the RR corner is Karmann's production numer and does not necessarily run in sequence to final production. Looks good Dion!

Thank you Pat. I appreciate the compliment. Thanks for the info on the trunk #. Waiting for this humidity to drop so the gentleman who did the body work and paint can coat this area. Needed to repair some rust in the trunk edge/floor near the rt. tail-light. Cheers,Dion

Does everyone know that the chassis number is actually a code with embedded meaning about your 914?

Not possible. They didn't offer the crossbar until 4/05.
