Type3 Brake Drum Replacement - What to Buy?


I have Type3 rear drums on my '68 Beetle and the verdict today was one is good and the other is right on the limit. So, given my chances of finding a good original German drum are fairly remote, what brand/country of origin should I be looking at?
Cheers

I think your only option is to look for good 2nd hand ones that still have a bit of meat on them

I wouldn't fit new ones...



I'd rather wear a Beetle out by racing it than by polishing it!
