What year did the standard bug go from the solid metal dash to plastic dash/trim? I'm looking for a 69+ bug but I'd like to have the solid metal dash for when later down the road I put all the gauges I want, I can patch/weld/cut new spots.

68 I believe. Mine had it but I removed the padding and smoothed/painted it.

67 had metal dash. 68 had padded dash. It was because of DOT regulation. A padded dash was required for the 68 model year. If a 66 had a dash pad, it was added. It was not original in a 66.
