Paint/Upholstery Codes

by Bob Hufford


These are color and upholstery codes from a hand-typed, laminated sheet that was found at an auction of the local VW dealer when they went out of business. This is the only place that I've seen codes for the wheels and bumpers for Type-2s (not that I've seen that much). Maybe someone can fill in the blanks...
