Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Default Early beetle inner wings

Is it even possible to get early beetle inner wings, everywhere I look only have later with the fuel cap cut out.
I have a 66 and looks like a previous owner has made a bad repair and the easiest way I can see that I will sort this is replacing bother inner wings

I think N.O.S. or cuts might be your only options.

Also the Klokkerholm one needs the bumper mount moving. Not the end of the world, but still a faff. I went through something similar trying to sort the front 1/4s on my 55.
