do you have to have nos parts? i got all my rubber from california imports, 
out of canada. many of the pieces had the vw and part number stamped in, but 
even those that didn't were a good fit. prices were as what would be expected 
for type-3 rubber, but atleast my car seals : )

If you want to identify the colour, the details on my pages may help; check
out http://www.hallvw.clara.net/dating.htm  to see if the body plate has
the colour code, and then http://www.hallvw.clara.net/vwpaint.htm  to see
what the paint mixing code is.

There is also a website for paint formulation by Glasurit.
http://www.glasuritnet.com/htbin/glas98?PV=P&QUANT=1.000&CONTEXT=2&LANGUE=2

Enter "21" as the paint number
Enter "VW" as the manufacturer.
You can then enter a paint code , such as L-690, or leave it blank and
it will list all 900 colors used!

Wolfsburg West also has colours and chips.  (Can't find the site, but just
do a search).

Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed

Hello everyone,

1).   with it being summer, it's been great weather here in indiana for VW's 
except it has been so dang hot.  Here's a prob i was experiencing with my 
square that i'd like some help on.  Ok, the car starts up fine, and i can 
drive it great for about 10 minutes, until, what i believe is happening is 
that it is getting too hot, where it starts to run rough, and it begins to 
shake horribly (not side to side, but i guess, front to back, like a really 
bad slipping clutch), i do know that it is either related to the engine or 
the transmission because when i push on the clutch the problem goes away, i 
have no clue where to start trying to fix this.  If i haven't been 
descriptive enough, please ask me and i'll clarify it some more.

The engine has less than 100 miles on it since i rebuilt it with all new 
parts, i just checked the valves (to make sure they weren't way out of 
whack) and everything checked out, it is a '72 FI Square, i am using 
Pertronix Electronic Points system (what's that about i recall i heard on 
here?  If anyone knows about that, please let me know) so i know the gap is 
correct, i just can't figure this out.

2.   Ok, when i drive the car on a windy day, this is probably normal, i 
don't know since this is the first square i've owned and in the bus i used 
to own i never noticed this, ok, anyways, on windy days when i am driving, 
whenever the wind gusts, i can hear my engine rev up.  Is this just a 
"natural turbocharging" caused by a lot of air being forced through the air 
intake slits on the sides on the car, or could this indicate an air leak 
somewhere?

3.   Last but not least, i have always been confused about the timing and 
cheap gas issue.  Ok, so would there be any harm in running high octane gas 
in a 1600cc, '72 FI car?  Because i know if the octane is too low, you run 
the risk of knocking (or is it pinging?), but are there any adverse affects 
of running high octane gas (i think the highest-ly see here in 
indiana is 91)?  Would i then have to set the timing the other way?  Would 
the engine run too hot?

Thank you, and i'm sorry this is so long, i am just anxious to get on 
enjoying this summer with the VW

I think your memory has failed you. 68-9 used the bullets, however, 
the color of the bullets may have varied for different markets. Here 
in the US (where Road & Track probably got their test car) all 68-9s 
had bullets.

The FI is an excellent system. Don't assume that a conversion to 
carbs will be pain-free. Both systems have their learning curves, but 
the carbs, since they are not OE, have limited support. You cannot 
buy carbs that will just bolt on and be jetted correctly and will run 
flawlessly from the start.

Most people consider the switch because they don't understand the FI. 
Once they switch to carbs they discover that they don't understand 
carbs. Remember: the grass is always greener on the other side of the 
fence.

Hello all,
I just received an email from the Type 3 detectives:
http://www.wildhq.demon.co.uk/t3d/
I asked them if they had any Hood/door seals, window scrapers(inner and
outter) and other misc window bits n pieces.  The prices were not cheap,
but the real surprise was the fact that they quoted me 110 bucks for
shipping to the us!!
I am in need of these parts, but in now way going to pay 110 bucks to
ship a 50 dollar piece of rubber.  Do any of you know where i could find
these parts a bit cheaper?  Any help will be appreciated..


Thanks

What kind of car do you have? A Notchback, Squareback, Fastback, or Type 34? 
WesuMetric has most of the rubber provided you don't mind using 
"alternate" rubber. You should be able to refit a Notchback or a Type 34 for 
about $600. For example, three door rubbers from a Type 1 Ghia makes two door 
rubbers for a Type 34, and it goes on and on.
You should be willing to use Zep's quick grip adhesive, which requires 
refrigeration when not in use.
