From 1984 to 86 the factory didn't put any model badge on the rear lid of the Turbo Looks. From 1987 to 89 the G50 911s had a mild face lift that included a different rear reflector and H-5 headlights. That face lift starting in '87 also added the Carrera badge to the Turbo Looks. The badge on your car is correct for a '87 to '89 TL.

If you look at the pictures on my 1986 list you will see that most don't have a badge. I put the smaller 993 size Carrera badge on mine because I think it looks better with something in that space.

Sounds like you put a lot of time and money into making this car right again. At least it is still one of the lowest mileage '86 TL coupes that I know of.
