Hey, I have a 1966 Baja Bug I am working on, I bought a 1975 super beetle for its rear end and now have the problem that I want to have 5 Lug drums all the way around. The 66's drums are not compatible with the 75. I would prefer not to use an adapter plate to go from 4 to 5 lug. Anyone know of a place to buy 5 lug brake drums for the 1975 rear end? Or any other ideas on what I could do. Thanks guys.

VW Thing drums. I think 1969 - 1975

your 66 drums will work.. I cant remember how I did it??? I think I moved the backing plate from the 66 to the IRS... I think I needed to use a spacer to get the 36mm nut tight.
