Does anyone know the exact location for the three holes for the signal?
I want to know how to measure it out on the front fender. A drawing would be nice 64-66 bug. Have a pair nice og maybe fenders but not sure if its right drilled holes.

The front fenders on the car are for the moment aftermarket crap with wrong drilled holes

Well, the 64-66 ones are closer to the body and further back. There's this tech bulletin on theSamba that shows the 58-63 style location, if that would help you.

If you use this measurement BUT use the location of the shown rear small hole as your front hole you'll be just about right.

did anyone use those measurements for the 65-66 mounting location? My fenders came "shaved" and I really want to add some real turn signals. Can someone measure their turn signal locations for me? Pretty please? Very Happy

No dimensions handy, but the early 64-66 location is noticeably different than the earlier one.
