You are right about covering up the patina. That is Masterseries Silver on there. GREAT stuff. I cated the whole car in it and then covered over the bottom half with truck bed liner stuff. Very durable. I did my last rail with it. I already put in a low mile 1600 DP, over the weekend, just so I can do some cruising. The REAL engine is going to be gone through before it goes in, I have a 1.8 diesel that is going in there. I am actually wiring up the engine, right now. I just ran in to get a a wiring diagram and try to see how to wire the 1974 alternator in place of the 1970 alternator. I may just end up changing the alternators out...

I love this build... I like that the trunk area is still available and it is waterproofed.

ok im going to get on now.
i think if i bought a bug then converted it to a baja that it would be a cool and interesting project and it would be fun and something that i could turn a wrench on it. or just buy one from some that has all the money and time into it.
