perhaps replacing the whole top could be a whole new lease on life~


Agree with Judge Roy on this one...I tried looking for this gold colored latch you referred to, no luck. Replacing the top isn't expensive and most likely better than trying to fix this anyway. My advice: Make your husband pay for it, since he broke it...or at least get him to take you to a really nice dinner and a movie!! :)

go to you local vw dealer ad see what it cost. I would think you should be able to replace the latch cheaper than the whole top

take and have it anodized gold...there was a shop in Oakland who would do this~

Who could argue with black grain vinyl?@199?
