OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Dual Carburetor Access Panel, 5 INCH opening, EACH
Dual Carburetor Access Panel, Each


 
Dual Carburetor-Access-Panel, Each is the perfect, inexpensive, and rust-proof solution to accessing the outsides of dual carburetors in confining engine compartments, such as early VW Beetles. Installs easily to any flat surface with bolts or rivets (screws is tacky, and leaves "knuckle eaters" that could also damage tail light wiring!). Simply figure out the center of your hole, trace the outline of the cutout, remeasure (un-cutting is especially difficult), cut and trim, the secure the way you prefer! The actual "cap" is threaded and spins in and out, it's leak and rust proof! You need 2 of these to do a pair of dual carbs. THESE ARE NOW 5 INCHES IN DIAMETER (prior to 2017, the panels we sold were a smaller 4" size, but customer feedback suggested that larger ports would be even more convenient).
Price: $19.95

4 of 5 Dual carburator access panels April 7, 2013
Reviewer: Mitchell Tucker from Seymour, TN United States  
Well built, easy to install. Would be even better if they were 5" or 6".
these are 4" access holes, and are kind of a tight for larger hands. I think they will work fine since I am not in there all the time. A square bolt on would be handier that way you could use it to change #1 and #3 plugs.
