Anyone else having trouble finding a place that sells lower cooling tins? I need one for my 77 Westfalia with a type 4 motor. The lower drivers side tin seems like it's impossible to find.

The sled tins need to match the exhaust system you are running,; 72-74, 75-78, 79, and California variants.

Thanks, I just emailed them. It just seems like I have a mixed amount of parts or something that don't add up, lol

The holes always seem to be off, even after looking at the link tcash shared

Those won't fit a 78 unless you have a 72-74 exhaust, this is what you need if you still have F pipes leading to U pipes at the front: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1974959

You might have a mix of parts. Here is the 72-74 tins.

You need the 72-74 style, like the ones in the first link. The ones with the valley in the middle won't work.

Partially correct, whoever swapped the early exhaust on there left the late forward tin in place, you'll need those as well.

That one VWEd posted will work but you'll still need the early forward curved plates.
