Keystone or JC Whitney.

Never thought I would say those two words in one sentence but both have good sheet metal and JC has everything else you could want for that bug. Quality, I place JC first as never had a problem with engine parts or sheet metal.

Barry's right JC Whitney has come a LONG way with having good replacement and aftermarket parts.
I just got a catalog a week ago with nothing but VW stuff. Almost made me want to get one.
Twin Turbo Bug would be very kewl.

Pick up a copy of "Hot VW" magazine. It's almost all retail parts ads.
