1950-1979 Beetle Convertible Reinforcement Rail Heavy Duty LH 69 x 5-1/2 - OEM Number(s) (151-801-131-D,151801131)

If the doors on your VW Beetle or Super Beetle Convertible do not close correctly or if they rattle, there's a good chance that your support rails are rusted and need to be replaced. The Convertible body relies on these support rails for strength and support through the door frame area of the body. Our heavy duty 1950-1979 VW Beetle Convertible LH Reinforcement Rails come complete with jack point supports in place. 

Convertible Reinforcement Rails were designed to support the convertible body since it has no hard top to stabilize its form. The rails weld beneath the heater channel assemblies which are located directly below the doors. Examine your rails by looking under the car just inside where the running boards attach. Rails extend down two inches and have jack point supports extending outward near the rear of the rails.

If your car has high mileage or has been exposed to  moisture over the year it is likely your reinforcements rails have damage or are completely rusted away exposing the bottom heater channel plates.

Mid America Motorworks' complete Convertible Reinforcement Rail replacements are made from heavy 16 gauge steel and include jack point  supports, which are already installed. Our rails are welded into an original form and are completely ready for installation.
