Unfortunately our junkyards have no air cooled in them. You can try Meyers auto parts in town, I know their location on Boulder Highway has VW metal in the back yard, my brother got Bay window bus sheet metal from them, but I doubt they have ovals to cut up. I have a 1303 shell and '73 standard shell in my back yard if you need metal that is fat chick interchangeable.

You can try asking here, I've seen baja'd Ovals pop up for sale recently: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1413207808963525/

Don't limit yourself to Las Vegas. There should be something close by. You will probably need to rent a car and make the day of it. I thought someone mentioned a good yard in the desert somewhere over there. Nevada? Arizona?

Pahrump seems to have lots of old vehicles sitting around.
