Thread: Rear crossmember questions

    Rear crossmember questions

    I am trying to restore my 1973 911S. It seems the last owners also butchered (among other things) the rear crossmember with engine mounts.

    We installed a new Dansk engine mount and used the Restoration Design piece to get the right curvature of the opening of the rear crossmember on the engine bay side. However I still have two questions:
    - Besides the curvature of the opening and the decal indents being different between model years, are there any other differences of the rear crossmember between 1969-73 and 1974-89?
    - I noticed some people sell the Dansk "inner skin", maybe this is specific to the early models? (picture attached)

    Also, on a similar topic, I am posting two pictures of the rear frame under the crossmember. The right side looks good, but the left side has this strange attachment welded on which I think was for the 964 bumper the previous owner installed. Is it ok to remove this welded-on extension?

    Thank you all!

    If anyone has pictures of this region from a restoration (ideally from a 1973 model year) and also of the engine bay looking towards the rear that would be ideal.

    the weld on thingies are g-model..your vehicle probably was converted to impact bumper at some point of its live.
    #no differenced from 69-73on the outer skin(65-68 is slightls different) . but there is some variations of the inner skin ..hole pattern and shape of the holes + position of the metal strips that hold the cables.
    will dig for pics when i find time...
