I am trying to decide whether to upgrade to 12v during restoration. Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated.
Harry
If you are still thinking about a 12V conversion, these articles might shed some light: https://porsche356registry.org/article/202 and https://porsche356registry.org/article/182
I thought there was a more comprehensive article on file but can't find one. Your wiper motor, clock, electric tach, generator, voltage regulator, light bulbs, and fuses would all have to be addressed in the conversion.

...I want more and it is very doable but not inexpensive! FWIW, most cell phones will charge on a 6 volt system. Valentine One Radar detector will not fire up at 6v. SMD headlights work way better than original incandesant bulbs but think they will be better at 12 volts. Finally, where are you going to find a 6 volt battery on the road these days?

NAPA offers a decent 6V sealed battery.

Beautiful!!! What's the total "mild outlaw"?
Batteries+ sells the 6V Optima. If you are concerned about cold performance, I just put in a Winterburn 6V CDI that works great and cranks down to I believe 4.5V.

PS My SMD headlights are great, albeit I wish they were a little more focused.

Reused all existing parts where possible . . . Extensive bodywork . . . The body required extensive rust repair . . replaced nose . . Floor pan, rear seat pans, lower door skin, hood panel, . . Restored to original by Andy Daughtery . . .

Lovely, can't wait to see the finished product! My kind of outlaw. Hope I can see it in person one day. What part of the country are you from, Harry?
