where could you get one for a square?

and what sizes might they come in?


I think for Squareback, you can check the products of streetbeat. They offer one. Very Happy

Cal Look and roof racks do not go together. To me it is all about big motors, no chrome, no bumpers (At least on a Type 1), one color paint and no roof racks, coolers, mudflaps, gravel guards........ stuff like that.
YEAH Twisted Evil

Today is indeed full of fun. I drove my Fasty "SHARKY" on my way to the office. Man, she was hot! Everyone was looking at the ragtop, wondering. Ha ha ha. (of course they weren't looking at me.) The guard at the parking lot was shocked to see SHARKY sporting a ragtop. He though SHARKY was damaged. Ha ha ha. I'll cruise around the city tonight with my fellow vee-dub buff friends, the Araneta Boys:

I was so excited to show Sharky to my vee-dub friends with the Araneta Boys becasue of the ragtop I installed. We had some good chat. They were glad to see Sharky sporting the ragtop I personally installed. And, indeed, they were proud. I was proud too. Unfortunately, on my way home, I figured out in a freak car accident this morning at around 2 o'clock in the mornig. Sharky was severly damaged. I hope I can have Sharky fixed the soonest possible time! Crying or Very sad

This is a sad day. It is very hard to accept the fate of Sharky.

Thanks a lot for asking, man. I am safe now. After the accident, I called some of the vee-dub buff fiends, we pushed SHARKY to out house about one kilometer from the accident site. I was turing left to our subdivision, unfortunately, the Toyota lite ave van was rushing towrds my direction, it hit Sharky on the quarter panel. Sharky turned about 90 degrees.

Thereafer, I asked my wife to rush me to the nearest hospital becasue I was feeling some pain on the left side of the body, particularly my neck. After the doctor checked by condition, I was declared ok. But she prescribed pain reliever. I still feel the pain now though.

The transmission crashed, the diagonal arm and shock tower bent, two quarter windows blew, the shock absorber bent, the front and rear wind shield popped out and landed on the pavement. Luckily, they did not break. I took them and load in our Spacewagon.

It is vey hard to accept the fate of sharky. My heart is bleeding for Sharky! I feel so low and sad. I really have invested time, effort and money. Hope Sharky would be back on the road soon. But I have to save some money to finance the repair. Crying or Very sad

I have an entire rear inner fenderwell I can cut out to your specs and both fenders (from a 1973) that I'd be willing to send just for freight cost if that helps. I'm in Oregon, USA. I think freight will be expensive, though. Crying or Very sad

To put it mildly, that really sucks! But the main thing is that you are okay; a car can always be replaced.

Too bad you are so far away. I am parting out a 71 fastback. Everything you need is there, plus some rust.
Salvage those window rubbers. If they were popouts, they are made from unobtanium.

Mate! That's not good. I think I know how much that car means to you and just how much you are suffering. As others have said, At least you are OK.

If it makes you feel any better, at least there are some more parts for the rest of us now.

Thanks, electricmonk. Yeah, Sharky really means a lot to me. I salvage her when she was about to be wrecked in a junk yard! Now, on that faithful morning, she saved me. Volkwagens really cares. Thanks man. Very Happy
