Hi guys!


Im having trouble finding a picture of a bracket that I can use for my 68 bug. I have 66 blades.
I know they have a conversion bracket but wanna fab up one maybe.

thanks!

Not the greatest pics, but these are the conversion brackets that CIP1 sells.

I've thought about this conversion too- here's the skinny on fabbing them-
note tall (68- up ) mounting holes, and wider spread too- then they narrow down to fit and allign with your old school bumpers- check costs- but I'd bet its cheaper to buy the conversions than custom fabbing them. Seen them on a 68 before- coulda sworn it was a 67!

Note- I think the top pic might have the brackets reversed- the mounts on a 68 are wider than previous years- thru the fenders , early models are thru the apron.
