Replacing the bottom side of the Volkswgen frame head is a fairly common job especially on cars from the midwest. We have found several cars that have great body work, floor pans and have holes in the bottom side of the frame head. This is a very common over looked area that is critical to your VW's safety. The entire front suspension hinges on this piece.

When replacing the bottom side of a frame head, it is recommended to clean out the entire frame head to rid it of dust and dirt and any other items that may have ended up inside. We have seen several cases of a rodent making a nest inside a frame head and even the tunnel. You will want to make sure that you have a clean surface to weld your replacement panel back on so that the weld is strong.

Please Note: Upon receipt, all body panels must be checked for fit. The nature of vintage cars is that there is normally some fitting, grinding or filling necessary to make new parts fit older and perhaps modified cars. This is normal and is not considered a valid reason to return a part.

Parts which have been modified or painted by the customer or their body shop are not eligible for return. If you are employing a body shop or paint shop, please make them aware of this.

These Replacement Vintage Air Cooled VW sheet metal panels are quality replacement parts produced by companies worldwide. These parts are delivered to us and then to you using ships, trains, trucks and local carriers. Scratches in the rust preventative paint (not considered primer) and minor dings are not unusual and cannot be prevents. Minor flaws are not considered damaged product.

If you have questions, please call prior to ordering. We will be glad to assist you in finding the proper parts for your VW.

Note: Minor repair may be required on some panels.
