'87 OEM 924S Radio Antenna/Headlights?

Hi folks, just signed up and have a few questions about a 1987 924s I recently purchased.

1. Is the OEM antenna a manual or power antenna? When I purchased the vehicle the antenna was missing and I'm not sure what to replace it with. I'd rather go aftermarket due to cost.
2. Can someone provide me with a headlight wiring diagram. The previous owner told me that the old headlight switch burned out due to a short in the circuit and I purchased a switch however I need to find where the problem is before I install the new switch. If possible maybe you can scan the wiring diagrams page and either post it or send it to my email, jeepcj@bellsouth.net

Thanks in advance. I generally do all the work on my cars and this being my first Porsche I'd like to make sure I do it right.

Regards,
JF

Antenna is power- If yours is permanently up- the motor is probably bad. I have left ine alone (broken in the up position) for over 6 years now.. wow has it been that long!

Headlight wiring diagram- check www.clarks-garage.com

or contact "Iceshark" on rennlist forums- He's the Light guy. Or buy a Haynes manual- all the wiring diagrams are in the back. (It's a 14$ confidence builder..)

Congrats on the 924S!!!

Use just the head and tail light circuits from the PelicanParts graphics. Some of the engine wiring is more like the later models than the early.
