    1969 911 S Targa restoration

    I'm currently restoring a 1969 2.0S 911 Targa and I'm having a hard time with the Targa seals. I hope you could help to answer few questions:

    - Left/Right Targa top frame seal: as I'm restoring a 69, I wanted to use the early type (thinner one, see picture below), but few people are recommending the later type (thicker). I just wonder 1/ if the latter type really fits 2/ if the upgrade is really worth it (better water/sound insulation)?

    - Targa Windshield frame to top shield (front seal): the 69 type has 2 two copper elbow pipes (see pic below) that are directly entering in the windshield pillar. I assume it is for water evacuation, but I really find it weird, as the inside of the pillar will be exposed to water… Am I missing something like a pipe linkage in the windscreen pillar? Should I block that hole and not use copper pipes? Should I use a later seal type?

    Do not throw away your old seals, you need to carefully look at the subtle cuts that were made on them. Second call Dan Pechtel at "Cars Inc" , he even makes the correct seal for early cars.

    Thanks a lot edmayo,
    Unfortunately, my 69 was in really bad shape before restoration, so the seal were either not correct at all or not present.
    I already sent a message to Dan Petchel, waiting for his answer
