They filled 70's beetle rear 1/4's with expanding foam at the factory, presumably to add more noise insulation. Another reason why 70's bugs rot out more than earlier models, the moisture sits inside and eats the gutters out, as water finds it's way in through the half moon vents.

Looking good though, good to knock these sort of jobs on the head before turn into a full resto.
