Yep, on some. That's like gold dust, don't lose it.

They seem to be more common on the early cars 78-79 in my experience. I have one in my 79 that is complete.

Nice Mark. You can redo the foam, and buy the light bulbs to put into the box. Here's my resto thread on it - https://rennlist.com/forums/928-foru...efurbish.html. Folks should buy those boxes while Mark has them!

You can buy a brand new one from Porsche Classic for $91.65... Only downside is that is has H4 bulbs...

Wow what a deal! I think I paid $100 for the one I got a few months ago from a guy parting out an old junker. Silver lining was that it did include a bunch of foam-dust and broken bulbs. Should've known Mark would have some stashed away.

Just curious, where were these originally stored in the car, it the back or glove box?

Thanks!
