    Question '73 S- one or two trunk lights

    I was talking to the owner of the body shop about replacement hoods for my car and I noticed that Stoddard offers two versions of the long hood with a price difference of about $600. He thinks the difference might be that one hood accepts two trunk lights and the other just one. He thought my car should have two trunk lights rather than just one. I checked out the wiring in my car and I didn't find any loose wires that could lead up to to where a second light would be in the trunk

    I saw a wiring diagram for a a regular '71 911 which shows 1 light and the '71 911S diagram shows 2. Should my car have two trunk lights or did Porsche discontinue the second light at some point in '72 or '73?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the info. I guess that confirms that my car has the correct amount of lights. But you never know with early cars, e.g., why does my have an aluminum deck lid when it shouldn't?

    Thanks again,
