    Are you going to assemble that release latch before you put the fender on?

    yes...
    i have reassembled the latch and re hung the gas door....
    tedious work to get it all looking correct.
    yet fun to do while on the horse...
    if it was on the car ... it would be no bueno amigo...

    Finishing up the undercoating operation.
    i will go back and spot-in some places that were light/refinish
    the piece of green tape shows the areas to do.
    After this i will completely reassemble the body to assure everything is as i want it.
    nothing is done until it is done.

    First of all. I want to set things straight on the undercoat cutoff line on the body of a 1968 911L.
    In the picture above i somewhat randomly taped it off knowing that the "S" "L" deco trim would cover the under coat.
    The undercoat line should have been much lower, approximately 80mm from the door threshold opening.
    So, it would have been the same as a 1967 911 even though the deco is different for a 1967.
    This was verified by the rocker piece that i have from a 1968 L coupe with original green paint and brushed on undercoating (black).
    Here is a picture of the rocker piece (disregard the white stuff that was just me dialing in my spray gun)........
