Flat or dished hubcaps? They changed in '71.

hi Hambone, looking for a 75 Bay.
I would guess, but would rather to look and see both styles.

My three remaining are slighty "dished" out (convex), with the stamped vw logo about four inches stamped so logo is raised above that slightly convex dished surface.

A man who knows when it is time to take his shoes off. There's no going back once the shoes have been quit!

Ok, finally got out to check earlier this evening and I don't have any "extra" hubcaps, only the four that belong on the Fastback. Maybe Mike Boell or Hambone have some kicking around?

Spoke too soon, I spotted some other hubcaps in a shelf when I was digging in the garage for some stain earlier this evening. I'll pull 'em out and get a better look tomorrow.

Thanks Hambone, sounds like "not purty" might be trumped by what Tristessa unearths..
Will stay tuned for Tristessa's results.

Nearly have the right amount of hub cappery.
