Hello, I am trying to make the rear apron so you can remove it, when you need to. it's on a 66 beetle, any suggestions?



Nothing seems to want to line up

Mines a 70 but placement of fasteners might help. I chose to hide mine. My apron didn't have that much of a gap though. To get to them I drilled holes thru fender lip. I will have to loosen the lower fender bolts to remove it, but how often should you have to pull the motor? That gap will have to be filled with a strip of metal unfortunately.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Another question, my friend car is a 66. His rear body is a clip we replaced due do body damage. The person that sold the rear clip said it was from a 66. We were careful not to remove the wrong parts, or to much; so we feel why such a fitment nightmare. What year is your VW?

Again thanks for replying.
