That's a helluva a start! I like it a lot. I'd say buy it. It's only worth 5 grand to a baja nut, but it looks like a really nice ride.

BTW - Welcome aboard.

I agree with the others. I'm pushing that much so far into my project and it aint on the road yet. Plus, I'm not putting all the beefy stuff that one has like the trailing arms etc. I want to some day.

GO FOR IT! I would.... Especially if it runs good.

Looks like a great start. It has a lot of the work done already. Just make sure you go through everything before your first hard drive to make sure it doesn't have any hidden suprises.

The trailing arms are only boxed stock I would say maybe $250 and the shocks are 5100 series they are about $75-$80 each.
The cage looks pretty good though. I think it looks like a great start but for $5000 I think he could find a better deal.

If you do buy the car you will need to cut off the aluminum tabs on the side of the fuel cell and mount the tank in some kind of cradle, made out of angle iron. those tabs are for locating the tank only not for actual mounting points, the tank will get fatigue cracks and will leak. The one strap isnt enough to hold that tank down. It needs to mounted in a cradle similar to how the cell in my jeep is.
