Ok, (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/hijacked.gif)

Look at all the black front bumpers vs. chrome rear.
What's the story on that?

Hey,

That vinyl windshield pillar trim is a great idea for hiding rust and rot. My car has a ton of it on the rear sail planes and I was planning on filling the holes with expandable foam and extending the vinyl down an inch or so to hide it. Now I can do the same with the rot at the base of the windshiled post and still keep the "factory" look.

Cool idea ! (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/huh.gif)

My car is #1012 and has surviving original black vinyl A pillar trim.

But, it has black squirters. Go figure, probably not original.

The S I looked at did not have it. It was supposedly original paint with about 100k on it. It also had a door that was originally purple on the passenger side that had been repainted so who knows. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

Lawrence, can you please post some close-up pics of your a-pilllar vinyl, especially the area at the base where it is trimmed. My car (#662) came with it but I had it removed and don’t have any good pics of exactly how it was.

Yes, it's the whole enchilada, I imagine that it takes a good bit of vinyl to do it all the way around the windshield. The reason I dug this thread up is I had a "discussion" with someone on the Facebook page last night who doubted this was factory. I told him to do some research.

I haven't done so, but could easily be done.

the 914 1.7 before serial number 4732901000 had the vinyl around the windshield frame, give or take a few cars around that one thousand serial number

We have duplicated a kit for any one who whats to restore their car to the correct factory look. The complete vinyl top was very popular in the early 70s that is why vwporsche did the front windshield pillar

I think Porsche was going for the landau top look. I had a 67 Cougar XR7 in 1971 with a landau top. Car in light metallic blue with blue top. I have owned 3 Cars of the years from Road and Track. 2013 Tesla, 67 Cougar, and my 914 1970
