I found the seat padding in Germany (of all places!!). The padding is a direct fit and no problems at all. I got them from Werk34. They were sent promptly and in good condition, the only point I would like to make is that they were quite expensive.

Thanks to all who viewed this post.

Hello, VW aficionado in Mexico (Mexico City).

Six months ago I restored entirely a 1988 Mexican VW. Now it looks brand new.
During my adventure I came along a lot of people and business here in Mexico and sure I can help you.

I'd like to offer you some proof in order to get things kosherized, any ideas on how to do it I listen. I can share to you my Instagram account to show you proof of my two VW but I don't know if that is allowed here in the forum.

Now regarding your upholstery matter. I can buy and send fully compatible padding. But before anything I'd like to have some pictures and if possible the reference number in the old paddings.

I have a 1996 Mexican Beetle and I need to redo the seats. The frames, rails, center hump, and floors are in great shape. Really. No rust at all.

The problem is I need front seat padding. I purchased some very expensive 1978 VW convertible bottom seat padding which I was told is the same, and it is very close, but it's definitely NOT the same. Where the padding sits in/ touches the frame is significantly different.

I have found injection molded padding in Mexico on Mercardolibre. What I'm wondering is if there are any people reading this who live in Mexico and can take delivery of ordered padding and send it to Japan. Of course, all monies would be paid upfront.

If you have any other ideas, I would love to hear them.

Just so you know, I have already contacted Antonio and he can not get them.

Thanks in advance.
