Still going crazy looking for my super fire wall support. It appears this part is no longer available.Iwish i knew the difference between the standard and super, then maybe i could buy the standard and modify. IF anyone has access to both, id appreciate you eyeballing them and let me know   thanks

Standard and Supers should be identical from the door hinges rearwards...
so the part You are after should be available...

My Son has taken the body off a few Beetles and He doesn't own any special tools just the standard Metric Sockets with a rachet and solid bar plus open ended and ring spanners....  For any Bolts that are hard to remove You will need the solid bar with a piece of pipe to undo them....
You may have more problems taking the body off as rust and corrosion are much worse in the northern Hemispere.... We normally don't have any problems undoing the bolts that hold the body on.... but the welded nuts can come loose due to the rust etc...  I'm hoping You don't have any of those sort of problems... and its a straight forward body off restoration....
Best wishes for Your resto and have a great 2005..
