    Restoration question 68 911S turn signal body encloseures

    This 1968 911S that I am doing a cleanup/re-restoration on after some previously spotty work has the front light boxes blacked out.
    The rears are painted body color with no black out. Can anybody tell me what is correct?

    the turn buckets on all SWB cars should be body color. They often rust and look ugly so sometimes people paint them black just to clean them up but its not correct.

    Isn't it the case though, that the area behind the horn grill was black from the factory?

    Indeed brushed black by the factory, at least on an early model 67 S.

    I have been studying all paint details of an early delivered model 1967 to write a manual for my painter. During that exercise I encountered your car. Can you share other paint details please? Maybe via PM (e.g. a set of pictures via WeTransfer)? I am thinking of starting a specific thread for that purpose, grouping all gathered details.

    What kind of brush did they use?

    have seen this on many cars and always wondered what for they brushed the inside of the buckets .
    300113 and 300134 also had it this way.
    what about the headlight bowl on your car Joris?
