the window switch plate has been changed, thus the 911 style switches
I'd like to see a couple closeups of the rear spoiler, it appears to be the same as mine... which is an early prototype for the S package, mine was installed late 78 early 79 and as I stated previously, it's a diff material, it's a shiny more rubbery spoiler than the production ones which are kind of spongy
that interior was definately redone by someone not familiar with the car... or aesthetics

A strip-to-shell repaint in original Silver, full engine refresh, and replacing seats and door inserts in original fabric would be my starting point.

You might also want to try asking Porsche AG for the original spec sheet - see if they can confirm the original interior colours to aid you in picking the right fabric and carpet kits My Letter of Origin from Porsche included paint codes, and "Black Leather Interior", as well as engine numbers, option codes etc.

If you need to track down fabric, you might want to try these guys:

You mentioned a GTS, so evidently not a stranger to 928's Nice purchase, I'd love an early RHD car to restore.

Great advice Hilton!
I will give the Vin to Porsche in Oslo and have them check it for me..!
Cant wait to see it in its original colors.

Rixter..!
Nice cars...!!
Black n white!
Cool.
Both yours..?
Somehow mine would be nice in the middle once its silver again..!
Perfect balance..!
I am going to post some pics taken by a professional photographer of my GTS.
See if I can manage to downsize and upload the files sans Dean Fuller..!!)))

Hey Rixter, did you notice post 29, 6th photo from top? Star ****.

J. Michael, when the key is removed from your ignition lock cylinder, is the key slot vertical? Mine is. Every other one I've seen is angled 45-degrees CCW.
