I'm trying to track down the best cloth fender beading for my 50 split. I remembered an ad in the classified for a really nice set that was pre-cut for the fenders and bolts, but I don't see it any longer. I'm just looking for really good quality. Does anyone know what happened?

I would NOT buy the beading in the first link, It is nothing like original.

the beading in the second link is a VERY good reproduction. Pay the extra!!

with the second one coming from Germany... would probably be same cost to me avoiding shipment and import taxes from the US!

Thanks a lot:-)

definitely go with the second one. They are a dead on match of the original.

In which case, who is making and selling the items in his name? The Samba ad https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2226352 was only renewed last month.

I bought my set from him in 2012, and they still await fitment!

And I bought mine from him late last year!

I used the same beading between the running boards and the heater channels (it's a '46 so no rubber covers). Thus I have two new unused beadings for sale. PM me if interested.

Nope, I have spoken to him at Bad Camberg and last week he did a marathon... alive and kicking. I think you mean Etzold... ( Rip Guido )

I think it was Axel Stauber that passed away.

I remember visiting his shop years ago - he had spent years and systematically gone to old VW dealers in Europe and purchased their old aircooled parts inventories and had a very large warehouse with almost every VW part.

He came to VW Classic or Octo and would wear his roller blades and stroll through the swap meet.

Yes, this is correct.
