|The black parts here are Brazilian VW parts, whereas the galvanised parts are parts I had copied from NOS German parts. There are some notable differences between the two. The Brazilian parts have many more holes than original German parts. I had started to weld up all of these holes but soon realised it was going to take forever. Instead I had these galvanised copies made from genuine German NOS parts. The differences between Brazilian and German parts extends to the outriggers. The original German outriggers have a small water drain hole and a tongue which goes under the main chassis rail, whilst the Brazilian parts finish short of the chassis rail and let water drain out in that way. To be honest the Brazilian outrigger is better designed with respect to water removal but, being a slave to originality, I was duty bound to copy exactly the German part.
