    I have a modified version of the nerfs on the California Kid. The front frame rails are wider on fat fender cars. I have the prototype on my 39 sedan. It's now available in the Pete and Jakes catalog. We also tried the rear bumper available in the catalog. It was a perfect fit and quite strong. I drove that car for years with no protection front or back. It made me nervous.

    Your rear bar looks quite strong and very good looking. I backed into a short pole in the ground and my bar won. Not even a scratch and it put a dent in the pole.

    Nerf's that look great are tricky,I had made rear nerfs for my full custom Henry J,as the rear pan was full roll with tunnel for stateplate that fliped inword to get to gas cap and bleanded up into what was actully a 59 Chevy hood skin mounted backword n bent smoothy from rear of cockpit down to a little above the the plate tunnel. Point is I designed nerfs in the rear to blend with cars design shape that would not take away from the flow but give at lest some protechion from other drivers. Those things are what I think make good nerfs look good and if they don't do the same for the car there on,they don't look right.
    Sorry I have no rear view photos of my J,it was stolden in 1965,but front view is in Car Craft mag 1963 Jan

    Looks fine. I bought a pair of those at a yard sale for 10 bucks, didn't know they were VW until later. I have been trying to fit them every which way to my heap, looks like I'm going to have to cut them down.

  28. Here are a few I like, although they're more like push bars than nerf bars.
