on the early porsches it stood for lesonal . it was to tell what plant the car was built in like karmann or vw audi . later when all porsches had to use BASF coating by contract the L was dropped .
for instance if you go into the BASF color look up and tipe in the L or 027 making it L027 you will get a reply that states no information found invalid color code .
unless it's a hold over color as of 1973 when the contract was signed that all porsches had to only use BASF products all color codes are only 3 digits or letters or a combo of them but only 3 .
thanks...That makes since then why my 914 has the L since it was a VW/Porsche. I'll adjust the artwork tomorrow and drop the L's. Great info! thanks again,
