TZ 197,
Thanks for sharing. I've never seen a seam like that before. I know the '87-'89's used a technique like that because they had now mounted the oil cooler in the brake vent. Is the other side's brake vent like that?
Hopefully, we can get some other owner's out there with '84 Sonderwunsch's to chime in. Of course, build numbers of these cars are so small that it may take a while to get someone's attention.

Here's a pic of my '85 Sonderwunsch's brake duct/vent taken a while ago.
