Hi, returning to the VW scene after about 12 years here. Bought a baja for my first car, went on vacation to the car going to the junkyard. Never really got the bug again until now. Went out and picked up a '71 Super Beetle with plans to Confused make it into a winter vehicle. Have now figured out that it's just gonna be too much fun to leave sitting all summer long waiting for the rain.

Picked the SB up for $400 dollars on Craigslist with no motor and lots of work needed. Planning on making it a project for my daughter and I (she's 3 but she had a blast going with me to pick it up and the ride home with "Her car follow her"). Picked up what looks like a Dual Port 1600 for it and spent all last night pulling off the tins and grinning.

Anywho, I'm 27, live in Fairfield, Ca and am now hooked on my summer project. If I could figure out how to post pictures... well I'll leave that one alone. Embarassed

My wife says I'm a goober... Crying or Very sad

Welcome aboard, man!

I will say that if you painted those tires white, well, maybe you should listen to your wife. Laughing

Naw the kid I bought it from did. Along with removing the strut spring on the driverside to "Lower" it.... umm needless to say I am going to go through the whole thing looking for problems.

So question, after pulling the tins off of the motor it looks like the push rod tubes are leaking. I ordered a set of spring loaded ones today. Also ordering a set of head studs next payday. While I'm in there would it behoove me to do anything to the heads? Was thinking of sending them over to get them cleaned up and checked out for cracks whatnot... Need to order a set of valve covers too, it came with one bolt on one clamp. Confused

And the list of stuff to order begins Twisted Evil

More of a middle grounding it. Not gonna slam it.. Not gonna technically off road it.. More of a gravel road play toy. Mainly it's my winter vehicle (ride anytime it's not raining >tell my wife for better gas mileage<) and I wanted to play with it a bit, it's not going truly baja 'cause I could pick up an standard next spring rather than thrash this one throwing money away. She said she wanted one also anyways so I figure get this one good and solid and tell her "But honey now I need one "
