Here you go, Juan. It looks like the easiest way to tell is the earlier bumper has an extra inch past the side captive plate as seen below (found on The Samba). The shorter later has the captive plate almost at the bumper end. It looks like Franz’s and yours are both later. The good news is the longer bumpers changed to short in 67 (along with a wider redesign of the rear fender well, thus the shorter bumper length), so 66 and earlier should work and hopefully not too hard to find (as opposed to being lowlight specific).Juan 59 DDWTParticipantMarch 1, 2019 at 2:09 pmPost count: 268
