So I figured it's time to start making a "Log" type thing, start posting pictures, and what not. And if this isn't the way and place to do it - i dont know what is...

So here it goes.

This is my buddies 1971 VW that we got for free from a family friend of his. We're doing a baja conversion. First one, so we have a lot of "stupid" questions.

So far, I LOVE working on VW's. Smile

He's some pictures of progress up to today:


Bye Bye Nose!


Not sure what we're going to do here, yet. But we'll think of something. Grind it down to the corner, and reweld?


Messes.... I guess cleaning is just as important as the work its self.


Pictures of the cut and turn. Nothing special, i suppose...


Painted, primed and reinstalled the trailing arms. Smile



Like always, any input is ALWAYS welcome, and we seriously appreciate ANY help. Smile

Today's progress felt like a lot. Smile

Pulled the body off of the pan. Power washed all the crap away. riged my sand blaster to not leak any more. Smile

started sandblasting the pan until i ran out of energy. Sad

Almost done, sandblasting another hour tomorrow? Still pulling sand out of my ears... Razz Love it.



Lifting the body up!


Time to start cleaning and working!




More updates soon! Headed over to Ace hoping they carry Herculiner in stock......

Not since the last post. I've had summer school. Sad

Herculiner came in, and it's being put on either Friday or this weekend.

Working on sandblasting the body as well.
