  View original topic: Engine compartment seal channel (SHOULD IT BE AT AN ANGLE??)

Hi guys so replacing the one side of my engine compartment seal channel and noticed that the one on my other side slopes downward towards the front of the car. I recall the ones in the beetle and bus are straight or parallel with the sheet metal but what I am seeing on the passenger side of my 66 ghia vert it is not.

I can not compare it to the other side as that had rotted away and been removed by the PO before I got the car. Anyone have the answer to this or can you take a peek at your car?

Thanks!

Found this picture here at The Samba.
This car is a -66.
It seems that the seal channel is mounted with an angel and not parallel.
Maybe itís different in other years?
