Fender Beading Installation

As I mentioned earlier about the running boards; if you have a Savannah beige ’67 beetle, black is not the correct color for fender beading. Wolfsburg West did reproduce beading in the correct color, but I believe no longer has a source for production. Your best bet is NOS (Good luck with that) or trying to locate on The Samba.

Here is a visual walk-through of some of the process:

  1. Eric,
    Your fender beading and running boards look GREAT! Anybody make them correct for Zenith Blue?
