@garland Nice! I went through the entire part deux. I couldn't really tell what satin black you used from the bumper picture. How has it held up since it was finished?

@gint

Mar-Hyde 3811 Black Satin Automotive Trim Coating Aerosol - 12 oz.
Great match to original trim paint, in my opinion. Handles bugs and washes on the front bumper, so holds up very well. Of course available on Amazon

Wurth Schutz is the stuff they used, it's commonly called "rock guard" in body shops, same stuff they spray rockers and stuff with.

I've been scrambling around because my brother in law runs and body shop and they're slow right now so he's offerering to finish mine, I'll let you know what they end up doing.

@ahycaramba if you want to smooth it out it can be sanded, you just have to be really careful not go get through the layer under the texture or things get complicated on refurbing and you'd have to possibly re gel coat it. Pretty sure there's some thread on that...

Thank you very much. I'm going to go bug you in the challenge thread for a picture of the top today. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

@eric9144 - Brother in law with a body shop? A slow body shop? Sounds like a recurring dream and a problem I'd love to have. Thank you and I'd love an update when it's done if you can make that happen.

I'm curious myself as I've never researched it. And I need to figure out someday which of a couple of tops I have around here are early or late. So this was timely. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

Early top has a thin rib, late top has a thick one.

So what is the time line that delineates between early and late? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Good evening,
I am quite new to the forum but have already enjoyed a lot of different topics and find them quite helpful and motivating.
Hope to contribute to this one. Looking at my Porsche 914 workshop manual I found the following information about the change of the roof:

From July 4, 73, new roofs were used from VIN No. 4 73 292 6222.

Further on Porsche introduced a new seal for the rear part that is not interchangeabel.
I have tried to translate both sides that are covering the roof changes and attached them.

What should be used for a headliner for the top?
For as long as I've had mine its just been bare fiberglass. I'm sure there is supposed to be... something... under there to keep all the noise from bouncing off the top.

@VaccaRabite Zach, look on 914rubber.com. They have a headliner kit I do believe. It's basically perlon....

Thats handy. I was thinking I'd just get a lightweight carpet to glue up there. Pretty cool that is what is supposed to be up there! Even better that I can get it already cut out for me.

How much heat and cold transmits through the roof top? I was contemplating using Noico 150 mil insulation padding under the headliner material.
