zcoker,

Its late and I'm tired so I may be missing some of your points. First of all, we can rule out the need to look for special numbers on the fenders of the '87 thru '89 cars since the M505 on the option list covers the original US cars.

I really don't believe that the slant fenders with the slats are a TIG welded version of the original fender. I've seen factory pics of them in the raw and i just don't believe that was the case again at least not for the M505 cars. I'll look into it more.

As far as welding on the rear flares goes that stopped relatively early on when Porsche realized that they would be making more 930's than originally envisioned. I think it stopped after '79 but I can look up the exact year tomorrow.
