Hi, could someone tell me where to get taillight seals for a 54? And i am also looking for brakezylinders, brake lines and a master brakezylinder.

Was searching the www, and could not find anything.

Thank you for all the responses..

Thanks Ben

I think you are not in the USA so I am not sure of a source in your country (Germany?)

In the USA Wolfsburg West sells a brake line kit

Also taillight seals

Front wheel cylinders I think you have to find from a private party.
Rear wheel cylinders are the same as Oval Window Beetle front wheel cylinders so they are available from a lot of companies.

On the master cylinder I have not bought one but I think it is the same as a Porsche 356 part?

I used the part number in the Type II Parts list. Which is online here:

I bought NOS front wheel cylinders as I was lucky enough to find some. The next time I bought rebuild kits and rebuildt the front cylinders. I heard you can get them stainless steel sleeved if yours are in too poor condition to rebuild. The front cylinders are the hard part to find IIRC

Rear cylinders are oval window fronts.
Brake rubber hoses are bug for front, later bus for rears, and are available new.

front rubber hose, for VIN up to 20-117 901 is p/n 113 611 701
used on bugs through 1964,

master cylinder:
