I am looking for OEM or NOS tar boards for my '67 vert restoration. Who carries those thick tar boards? Also, what covered the floor section that is under the rear seat?

Also, who is a good source for the OEM/NOS firewall pieces?

I like WW for accurate restoration pieces:

BFY Obsolete also is a good source:

I bought the Firewall tar board for the engine compartment in my 67 beetle from Wolfsburgwest. I must say it is the first time Wolfsburgwest let me down. I think it sucks.

I bought mine from BFY and it was fine, very thick and heavy. What was wrong with the WW stuff?

The side pieces were fine. But the big piece needed lots of trimming.

Yep, I had to trim the front board way down just to get it to fit. It came from WWest. Side pieces were fine. Very solid boards though.
