Installed the Grimaldi pop outs today. Very impressed with the quality and “Bang for the “Buck”! Only $349!
Easy install. Quality chrome finish on metal frames.
The gaskets and pinch welding are quality as well.
So impressed, I bought a Safari windscreen from them as well..
Cheers!

Do you have a website for the vendor?

The vendor sells on eBay.
I didn’t get a specific website.

Well, so much for Grimaldi.
Tried to buy the Safari windscreen for the Beetle.
Delivery was delayed by 3 1/2 weeks without proper communication.
Subsequently, Grimaldi tried to scam and charge me $41.00 upon delivery over and above the shipping that I already paid…. An import fee, that Grimaldi was responsible for.
eBay refunded the funds and agreed this was bad business.
Be cautious with this eBay vendor.
Cheers all!

First off, your car is beautiful.
I ordered the safari windshield for my 59 rag in Oct. It comes out of Brazil, took FOREVER to receive it and I'm surprised it arrived in one piece. Flimsy cardboard packaging with very little padding - 3/4in. sheet of Styrofoam, look liked a pitbull worked it over. Luckily, undamaged and very good quality.

I'm really leery about ordering the rear safari based on the last experience. The importer (middle man) should import a few of each to his location in FL. so when we order we can get them in a week or so, not 6 weeks.

@ Oldboxman - what year is your bug? I've been trying to find a front safari for my '66, but the windshield shape appears to be an issue on '66 & up.

They do sell them for the 66.
EC driver is right. The pop outs came in several days. The windscreen took several weeks.
It was worth the wait though. The Safari windscreen is beautiful!
Ours is a 60.
