front tin - front is front.

this is what seals the gap between the engine head covering tin and
the firewall/fuel tank wall.

this is the '71 specific one year only piece for doghouse fanshrouds
(68-70 were non-doghouse) but should be used in any 68-71 that has a
doghouse shroud

bus front tin is kind of square shaped, beetle front tin is rounded.

bus (doghouse and non doghouse - the hole is for the doghouse vent duct)

If not they sell a conversion kit that mounts to the oil pump plate.  I think they sell for about $12.  You WILL need to mount the mustache bar as there isn't anything else holding up the engine and trans outside of the front trans mounts.
