How was my '69 911 painted originally?

I'm at the end of the bodywork on my Porsche 911E '69. It's completly stripped to bare metal, everything's repaired to meet the highest quality standards. I want to repaint it according to the factory specifications, but i don't know how. Where was it painted to body color? Where did the spray it to black? How did the engine bay and the trunk looked like? And what about the bottom? It's important that it has to look exactly like on the '69 models. Please help!

Hun, you may be better off posting this question over on the Early S Registry - I know it's been covered there a few times.

The 69 had a black underbody and wheel arches, as well as trunk and engine bay... but the exact measurements of where black transitioned into colour vary from car to car slightly. Also the engine lid hinges are black on a 69.

That is fantastic that you are ready for paint. Can't wait to see your car next time I am in Budapest. It appears that I am behind you now in the restoration process! My 69 was painted black in all of the areas that Fishcop mentioned.

Fishcop: Thanks for your help. My bigges problem is the interior of the car. I don't know how it looked like in '69. Where it was black and where was it painted to body color.

kkinzli: I'm very proud now, the car is 100% ready for paint. But it looks already so cool that maybe i won't paint it
