hey guys, im getting some euro blade bumpers and the place im getting the from doesnt have it for the rear, can i use a front blade for the rear?
im guessing it doesnt really matter right?

wrong

there is a BIG difference in front and rear bumpers..

the rear bumper is a large curve

the front bumpers are not...

Not to say You cannot fit a front super blade bumper to the rear of a beetle

nothing is impossible..
just  a darn sight Harder..

Looks really good. The more I see that style bumper on Supers the more I like it.

HEY, THANKS ABUNCH.!
adapting them was a real fun little project.
since these pix my super looks alot different tho. new paint, wheels,etc,,
but those bumper will definately stay. i think it makes it look alot more custom and like a sporty classic..

We are looking at the Mid america Mexico style. My wife is the driver of our bug and wants fog lights put in bumper holes. So I get to build a bracket. Yay for welding and cutting
