Window Scrapers

I see that Autohaus and Vintage Rubber both in the US do these for a price and a substantial postage cost. Does anyone have a recommendation here? Anyone experienced import duties?

How about here?

I think vw heritage sells them as well.

They are all aftermarket ones and need cutting down to fit as genuine ones very very hard to find.

Unlike the Mk2 Scirocco the Mk1 shares it's scrapers with golf's, You can also find a Mk1 Golf cabriolet window scraper and trim that down, golf tin top are different as they bend up at the end.

That's good to know, I think a trip to the scrap yard is on the cards soon as my brother needs some for his Mk2.

Is it this model of Corsa?

Just to make things clear in this post the window scrapers from a corsa will only fit a Mk2 scirocco and not a Mk1 Scirocco, mk1s have completely different style of scraper as they have a metal trim which runs around the door.
