White plastic body plugs - really hard to find?

I'm getting around to the little things like replacing these as I reassemble my 73 targa after a body resto.

Does anyone have a part number(s) for these, and are they still available from the dealer? Are these really that hard to come by?



from an ebay ad:

NOS Porsche 911 912 trunk plastic plugs 65 73
Item number: 4580485402

4 impossible to get NOS genuine Porsche plastic trunk plugs. They will work for Porsche 911 912 from 1965 to 1973.NO RESERVE! Please see my other items. Thank you.

Try these guys.
Haven't had time for a good look thru the site yet:
www.caplugs.com
They may be able to point you in the right direction if they don't have them.
Let us know how you make out.
I am sure there are others (including myself) who would like to get some.

yes - the current issue ones don't fit at all - I bought every size Pelican had and not one of them fit my 73.5

But... you can buy black plastic ones of any size almost anywhere...

I believe I have some of the part numbers (in a '73 I recall there are like 6 different sizes). When I've ordered these type of plugs from Porsche some correct ones come but several times all I received back from Porsche was "NLA".

That site is pretty impressive. My guess is that if you can provide them the dimensions of your plugs or, better yet, a sample, they'll have something that will work. Possibly not identical, but close enough.

Good luck.

It was by pure coincedence.
I happened to pull a plastic plug out from a structured wiring cabinet and saw the name caplugs.com.
Typed it into the computer and remembered Crachian posting here.
