Started to clean up my engine lid and found lots of rust under the polyester spray coat. Need the later lid that has open space under the vent openings and uses plastic rain tray (don't need the tray). Can live with mild, surface rust. Can't live with dents or rust along lower edge.

If you have one, or know where there is one, PM me.

Buy/Sell/Trade / Seat-back- knobs
I need the two, large, seat-back-adjuster knobs from a late-1960's to early-1970's Beetle. These are the ones at the bottom, rear sides of the seat, with the four flats to change the seat-back angle. Want ones in good shape; mine are decomposed through electrolsis.

Will consider junk seat if these parts are still very good.
