I'm hoping to be able to paint my 74 sunbug before winter.  I've about decided to go back to gold. It will be slightly easier since we won't have to paint the inside. At any rate I looked at Wolfsurg's color charts. Is Hella Beige metallic the color? Thanks

And for my next paint question. Is the fender welting painted the same color as the car? Or is it painted at all.

Can't help with colours but paint your fenders separately.  Choose either black stock beading or go with a custom colour several of which are available.  Painted beading always looks like a hurried job. 

I'd rather have a partial bottle in front of me than a partial frontal lobotomy.

Here's a good resource for looking up VW paint codes http://autocolorlibrary.com/acl_files/volkswagen.html 

 

Your Sun Bug should be painted Hellas Metallic paint (beige, 98C - but with some variations).

 

My 75 Super is gold and the code is "Harvest Gold", paint code L99B.
