if i was you i would sell the super and buy a standard. you are going to run into a world of pain converting that thing over. to get any kind of travel you will have to get rid of the mcpherson front end and put a BJ or link in there and to do that you will have to weld on a frame head or a full cage and tie the beam in to it. but you can do that if you have the time and $$$. lol

the easiest thing would be to sell the super and get a standard. one that is already a baja would be the cheapest way to go. IMHO.

We deal with this question a lot. 72BajaBen is right, if you want an easy convertion to Baja then get a standard.

It is possable to convert a super, but it's a pain. It involves either converting the frame head or welding up tubes to convert it.

I am going to sell the Super. I have a line on a kid that is looking for a low rider and this would be great for him.

It is a good little bug, but it's a Super and I want a Baja bug.

No not at this time. I am having the brakes worked on and will get it down the road as soon as I can.

Thanks

BTW - What part of Tampa do you live in? Do you find a lot of Baja bugs at the VW shows? I have never been to one.

im in wesley chapel, and i work right off of I4 and MLK, which isnt too far from you. i havent been to a vw show in florida yet. out in cali Bajas are a dime a dozen., here they are alot more rare.

check out this link.

The Samba Classifieds

you could also buy a standard and build a baja. you will get it the way you want it if you do that.
