I know the flat window (71 and 72) Super Beetles will match up at the windshield cowl, but about 12" forward of that, nothing lines up. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/album_page.php?pic_id=930408

I *think* they redesigned the hood to work with the curved windshield, so I think you are out of luck altogether for something "simple". There is a guy I'm trying to get a hold of that did one on a 71-72 (goes by Shindig) that I'd like to copy on my 71. He ended up moving the strut mounts forward, which I will not want to do on mine. I'm planning on running fenderless anyway, but as you can imagine, fenders will be near impossible.

New to the site as far as posting. Seems to be quite a lot of information and cool stuff to look at. Anyways this is my winter project this year. 66 "volksrod". I'm not really going to do a build thread since its mostly complete but will post another pic of the finished project in a couple months. (hopefully)
