I've tried searching the forums for this info; I've reviewed photos of 'original' bugs;and I've checked with the online parts suppliers, but I can't seem to get a straight,consistent answer: what are the 'correct' colors for the bumper brackets and bumper support bars on a 66 Beetle? I've seen silver gray bars AND brackets; black bars AND brackets; silver bars and black brackets; and black bars and silver brackets. Anyone have the definitive correct answer? Thanks

When I bought my bumpers from Wolfsburg West, they insisted that silver was correct for 66 bumper brackets. I bought a can of their paint and it turned out well.

I believe this is it. I would call them to confirm it.

Yes....thanks for that info. I have had it confirmed elsewhere that silver/gray is the correct colour for the 66 bumper mounting bits. L91 sounds like the correct shade. Also had it confirmed with this photo from a 1966 VW brochure.
