I'm making a poster-sized infographic on the production history of the Beetle. Part of the graphic is a timeline of factory locations, which I'm basing largely on the book "The Beetle: Production history of the people's car" by Hans-Rudiger Etzold (https://tinyurl.com/y8wjyjxo).

Etzold lists a few locations that I can't find much specific info about online. I'm guessing these were CKD locations, but I still want to include them.

Do any of you know what specific city or location these four factories were in?

Portugal (1964-76)
Peru (1966-87)
Costa Rica (1970-75)
Thailand (1972-74)

Thanks in advance.
