Re-Covering a 1967 dash pad

Model: 912, Year:1967, Mileage:n/a, Type of use:Street use only
I have the windshield out already. I understand that 1967 dash pads can be re-covered. Is this a do-it-yourself project or should I resort to an upholsterer? If "DIY" is an option, what steps should be taken? Sourcing materials?


Model: 912, Year:1967, Mileage:75000, Type of use:Street use only
I have a '67 912 that needs a dash refurbished. I've heard the windshield needs to be removed to get the dash pad off. Looking at it from inside the bonnet, I believe all the fasteners are on the underside and at least somewhat accessible. Has anyone experience with this project? Why does the windshield need to be removed?

clock placement

Vehicle Information: Model: 1957 367 A; Year: 1957; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 1600; Total Mileage: 98,000;

I just purchased and restored a 356 A (1957) coupe, VIN 101562. I have looked at several hundred pictures as I was restoring it and have not seen another 356 with the clock placed on the passenger side of the car, near the grab handle. Is this an exceptionally unusual placement? Was it possibly placed there for a rally navigator's use?

'68 912 driver seat dysfunction

Vehicle Information: Model: 912; Year: 1968; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): Weber carbs, still stock otherwise; Total Mileage: 105,000;

When driving my 912 the drivers seat back will occasionally drop back (lay back) a notch or two. Can you advise in detail how to make necessary adjustments to seat back locking position or is there a picture of how to make those adjustments?

Targa top cannot be removed

Vehicle Information: Model: 912 Targa; Year: 1968; Body Type: Convertible; Engine (type, size, modifications): 4 cylinder; Total Mileage: 157,000;

I am unable to remove the Targa top. The passenger side releases normally but the driver side does not release. I insert the handles as always, but when the driver side handle is turned it does not move the "teeth" that hold the top securely to the top of the windshield panel.Please advise what steps I can take to get the driver side functioning.

Carpet Color and Installation

Vehicle Information: Model: 912; Year: 1969; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 1600; Total Mileage: 209000;

Think very stock, not concours stock. I am standing in front of a bare metal painted interior. What is the stock perlon carpet color for my car? Dark charcoal or black? My old interior is too old to tell. Vinyl is all black. Where can I find a carpet layout? Can I use any modern sound deadening material on the floor prior to installation? None of this is covered in the "911/912 Restorers Guide to Authenticity"

Carpets and interior side panel installation

Vehicle Information: Model: 356B; Year: 1963; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): just rebuilt 1500 normal; Total Mileage: 0;

I had the body dipped and am in the process of installing the complete interior. I did not take pictures the way I should have when disassembling the car and would like to know if anyone with a '63 Karmann coupe would have pictures that they could E-Mail to me to use as reference. I have an aftermarket carpet kit with the German material but need detail pictures.
