The door latches
have now been reinstalled.
the factory latch and when adjusted properly works efficiently.
Most of the time, these latches are not adjusted properly
and the doors could fly open and off. The latch you see in
this picture is a factory update, whereas the door actually
opens with front mounted hinges so the door cannot fly off.
used on the drivers door is a 1961 VW deck lid latch. This
part was used on 910, 907, 908, 917, and with a small alteration
the mighty 962. The alteration was a second hook welded on
the bottom and this latch included the locking mechanism.
When you bought a new 962, you got two keys, the Porsche key
for the ignition and the 1960's type VW key for the door.
Here is another story: The ignition key that I used for the
966 prototype was a door key from a 962. Of course it looked
like a key from a VW. When people ask me why the ignition
key is VW, I say it's not, it's Porsche!@#$%*
The arrows point
to the hinges on the leading edge of the door. This is the
same design used on both doors of the 910 (they don't blow
off this way).
cooler is now mounted. There was the Hoover Dam and then there
was the cooler that looked this good after a good cleaning.
Remember 906 owners, this is bigger than your cooler because
these long tails had this special option.
This is the screen
that will be installed in front of the cooler.
