We are frequently asked about the merits of the quarter Beetle and Super Beetle floor pans versus the full half floor pans (half the car, full front to back floor pans.)
If you want to eliminate the welding involved with joining the quarter floor pans, then consider purchasing the full length half width floor pan. However, if you can properly weld the quarter floor pans, you'll get a 'stronger than metal' joint ! (The welded interface is actually stronger than the floor pan sheet metal.) Also, quarter floor pans are much less expensive to ship than full length VW floor pans.
The Danish made quarter floor pans have been very consistent in geometry, thickness etc. over the years. And they are one of the thickest Beetle floor pans made.
The careful restorer can make all floor pans work well once all the floor pan installation and finish steps are completed.
Floor panhalvesinclude installed rear seat tracks. 1973-onward rear Danish quarter floor pans also include installed seat tracks. (Danish quarter floor pans from 1946-72 do not include the seat tracks.)
Full length VW Beetle and VW Super Beetle floor pans from 73-79 do come with center seat towers. Jack supports are either installed or are provided separately. Add-on tracks can be purchased separately for repairing existing floor pans.
The site will not compute shipping correctly for multiple floor pans. If you order two or more floor pans, we will review your order and send you a corrected shipping quote for your floor pan order.
We are sorry for this temporary inconvenience. Please proceed with your order and we promise to provide an accurate shipping quote follow up.

Pans are pre-primed. You should add primer and paint to any sheet metal you buy, whether pre-primed or not. Do it with respect for the possibility of rust.
We recommend using a build out agent, such as POR-Paint, coating the floor twice then using Rustoleum. Finally you can cover the floor with flat tarboard or else use outdoor rated carpet underlayment as insulation. If you use carpet underlayment instead of tarboards it is important that your floor be thoroughly waterproofed.
