Up thru MY '70, the under cylinder deflectors in Type 3s were the same as in Type 1s and 
Type 2s. Starting in MY '71 Type 3s got different tins, eventually dubbed "Cool Tins," That 
change also required different tin for each of the pieces that mount from the cylinder center 
line and below. That includes the parts you're calling "sleds" as well as the short pieces at the 
rear of cylinders 2 & 4.

I've been told that Beetles never got "Cool Tins," but I don't know this from personal 

I'm not sure if I have any spares for those parts. I'm not interested in trades, but if you want 
me to dig for late parts, let me know.
