Just wondering if someone could show me a correct batwing horn push for an early 55 UK bug!

We have just bought a batwing for cheap but it came with no horn push. Does it have to be the same colour as the wheel itself or can it be different colours!

I understand that differnt oem manufacturers were uses to produce these and they can very sometimes but I wouldnt have thought on colour?

Are either of these two hornpushes correct (for April '55)?  batwing1.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.  batwing2.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.

my 55 looks like those, but with cream paint on the 'grey' part, which always chips off anyway, but most people just repaint that part.

All those 55 parts on ebay look pretty correct, apart from the later 55- oval lights, the radio blank plate shouldnt have the button in it and some of the parts on the engine are later.
Funny as I was just going to post a thread about this car!
