VW Rear Engine Deck Lid, without Louvers is a quality reproduction VW Decklid for the 1968-1977 VW Beetle Sedan and Sunroof and 1971-1977 Super Beetle Sedan. Includes hinges, but no additional hardware or mounts and comes in a black rust-resistant coating, not painted. May have mounting holes (for emblems used in foreign countries) that need to be filled prior to painting. 1972 and later models may require the use of a 1966-1971, 3 screw, deck lid handle. Made in Brazil.
Body work will be necessary before painting!
Aftermarket sheet metal is shipped often times with dozens of other parts and as well as it is packed, it will have small dents or dings that will require body work or at least filler primer and block sanding before paint can be applied. This is simply the nature of body parts. These are a great alternative for a missing part or a rusted or damaged beyond repair original part, they are NOT OE, German sheet metal body parts.
NOTE: This decklid has the 3-Hole handle configuration that was original to 1968-71 beetles.
If you are going to use this decklid on a 72-77 beetle you must use PN:#111-517A & PN:#113827503F.Test fit the decklid before painting!
Previous accidents and body work can cause poor fitment of new sheet metal items. It is very important to test fit the decklid before painting it. This will allow any necessary body work to either the body or the decklid to be done BEFORE it is painted. Once body work or paint work has been done to any sheet metal item, it can't be returned!
There are no exceptions! If after test fitting you feel the decklid will not fit, DO NOT MODIFY IT. Once body work or paint work has been started, the decklid can not be returned!
