Does anyone have or know where to get a wire cover for a 71 Super Beetle? I find the ones for the Beetle at Cip1, Mid-America, etc., but not the SB.
Thanks!

The wiring cover that is in the trunk, it keeps the wires from so much exposure


like that but this one won't fit a super beetle.

Hey Desiree,
Not sure about a plastic cover, my 74SB only has the fiberboard type.
I ran through the list of suppliers in my favorites, as well as E-Bay. Looks like, if it exists, this is another one of "those parts" like the super dash. Just not to be found aftermarket. Might have to look for a used one. I will keep my ears out for you.

.....and the trunk liners are on my "wish" list at CIP1 too. Thanks for the suggestion, Dan! I appreciate all the help.

I ran into the same thing with MY72BUG.  I finally bought the ABS plastic one for the earlier models and cut it to fit around the blower box.  All in all it looks pretty good and better than the original black cardboard ones.  Dan (MY72BUG) in Goderich

I may have to do that. I've struck out otherwise. Still need cardboard for the rest of the trunk so I will imprevise. Thanks, Dan.

Hi Desiree,
 
 
I bought a fiberglass one...  one size fits all...
 
and i'll have to cut it down to fit around the fresh air box...
in My 68..
 
it would be the same on Your 1971 1302S super..
 
I still have my original board type one to copy from..
 
Funny, how many beetles i've seen without them...
 
People must have thrown them away, years ago??

regarding the cardboard under the bonnet..

I've seen a few cars done with carpet and it looks very good..

whether there is thin wood under the carpet I don't know..

some people are very good making things up ..

hi Lee

Yeah, people make things work on a lot of stuff. Right now I have cardboard and a sheet of spray-in bedliner in my trunk area, mostly to knock off the wind going through there that comes through the dash. Eventually I will get it done right. I've not actually SEEN that cardboard trunk liner so I don't know what the design is. My biggest concern at this point is to protect the wiring from moisture.
I appreciate your insight. Talk at ya laters.

Why not use the 68 up bug one for 71 72 super and bug alike. It already is cut for the fresh air box. For me I'll be using the older one. I got rid of the pesky box and the vents in the hood. Have to make tabs to mount it on the 71 72 super.

As a beetle owner and enthusiast since 1968,
the fresh air vents and the fresh air box were one of the Best things that happened to beetles...  IMHO..
 
I've seen a few people take the vents and the box out as they like the old beetle look...
 
I love the fresh air box, and its no problem..
