Need input here Folks!!!! 😀 I need to repair/replace the missing C channel on my front seat tops. Looks like from the welds the C was facing to the back, not down like later model‘s Does anybody have any idea what diameter these channels were?? Should I use a straight tube or was the tube slightly bent like the seat backs? Think cutting a slot in a tube is easier than bending sheet metal???John JonesKeymasterDecember 22, 2017 at 5:01 pmPost count: 6339
cut them off some later seat backs.FranzKeymasterDecember 22, 2017 at 6:49 pmPost count: 3377
Yo Rusty. I was digging for parts earlier today. I found a strait back 53-55 front seat back that has the piece you need barely attached. I think its probably the same as your 52.volksaddictParticipantDecember 23, 2017 at 7:40 amPost count: 573
Hey if you have any more 53-55 front seats laying around I know a guy who needs a pair for a zwitter 😆 😆 -where’s the praying emoticon-RustabusParticipantDecember 23, 2017 at 9:00 amPost count: 1847
Great news Franz!!! 😀 😀 Sooooo, I also have the correct rear seat top for the Split, pretty nice shape and I’m all excited about the original tag I found on the frame 😀 Would you guys keep it as it is and re cover, or sandblast and powder coat??RustabusParticipantDecember 23, 2017 at 9:11 amPost count: 1847
Tag translates to “behind-leaning” 😀FranzKeymasterDecember 24, 2017 at 9:43 amPost count: 3377
You don’t have to powder coat everything just because you work at a powder coating shop. 😉 Its only OG once.
Jeff, I’ll send this backrest with Rusty. Hopefully its something you can use.John JonesKeymasterApril 12, 2018 at 7:38 amPost count: 6339
I would give my left nut to see you finish this rig and take it home… 😎volksaddictParticipantApril 12, 2018 at 7:54 amPost count: 573
I missed the post on the seat back, Hell Yeah send it down!
That will be a great split someday, wrecked early in it’s life, stored in a dry climate for many years and a Tomtom history.
No beetle is worth loosing a nut over though.RustabusParticipantApril 12, 2018 at 6:13 pmPost count: 1847
