Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Synthetic Bows

We recommend that only the wood top bows and window frame inserts
be used. They are listed elsewhere.

However,  for those interested in budget restoration of their window frames we do
offer plastic rear window frame inserts on this page.

Up to Vin# 1552012217

Note:Inserts take the shape of the rear window steel frame. If your steel frame is
distorted then when it is stapled into the back of the top it will be mismatched with
the glass window. We strongly recommend either a careful reshaping of your steel
rear window frame, or the use of a new rigid unit which we offer that will minimize
any grief associated with the installation of the rear window glass.
