T 5 & T 6 lock post details

#1 Post by Brett Johnson » Sun Dec 30, 2018 12:55 pm

The information in my current book is fairly vague about the round impression that appeared at the bottom of the lock post (below the striker plate). Here's what I had and can anyone fill in (or correct?) the information.

Coupe Reutter: 113035 No 116884 Yes
Coupe Karmann: 210045 Yes
Cabriolet:
