German craftsmen are masters in metalurgy. We had a 1959 BMW 507 ( one of 253 ) in for restoration about 23 years ago. The welding ( albeit aluminum) was a welded seam that was paintable with no filing or sanding marks from when it was welded. It was refinished to show standards with only paint materials. I was humbled by the quality of their ability to get it so perfect. If that quality craftsmanship has been passed down I see no reason to doubt you observations. I think the real mystery is to find out when Porsche felt it cost effective to tool up for stamping. So............ anyone have any experience with bare SN fenders or other data that has the cars VIN or date certain if that changeover occurred as it seems certain that they started out as fabricated.
