These were reproduced, in 6061 aluminum, which should be more durable.  See this Samba link:

I bought a set, not installed yet, but damn, they look good!

He waits until he has a certain number of buyers, then makes them, so best to submit to him ASAP.

> Is there a recognised method of fixing Type 3 Front Seats that have gone very, very laid back ? Asked?on our VW Type 3 & 4 Club Forum in the UK but no response as yet.?Had our 1972 1600A Variant since March 1988. The Original Drivers Seat ( RHD here of course ) got very laid back in the early 1990s. I?ve had another Drivers Seat I got from a Breakers in use since then. That has now gone the same way. Looks to me like the problem is due to wear of the rake adjustment Cams on the cross shaft.?Only solutions I can come up with, apart from a new seat, would be to stick some metal, nylon or hard rubber on the part the Cams sit against, put some sort of a band around the Cams, or some bushes between the cross shaft and the holes in the Seat Base.
