Well the last few weeks have been fustrating to say the least !!! We got the car running and starts right up and got it to idle good, so I went to adjust the clutch cable to drive it and the car squelled like a pig adn then I could hear a grinding type sound.. After adjusting the clutch sevral times I kept getting the same result and then.... BOOM !! I now know what happens when you use an early style throw outbearing with a late styl pressure plate. the throw outbearing was rubbing on the fingers of the plate and got stuck in them and it blew the bearing up litterally. When we pulled the motor there was ball bearing and shrapnel every where and luckly nothing else got destroyed other then the bearing and the clutch cross shaft.. well we got everything matching and installed the car runs and drives pretty good, need to rebuild the front brakes and get some
round tires haha. Here is a video of it for the first time !!!
it has finally paid off a lil bit !!

I must say for the first time driving a baja let alone a vw it was a lot of fun... I couldnt wipe the smile off my face the entire time!!! I got a few thinks to do like cut the front fenders, add the rear fenders, new rear wheel bearings, change the oil and get a new carb(I think, with a 009 dizzy and the pict34 It just doesnt wanna run right so not sure if best to get a new carb or dif dizzy or what to do any suggestions? Here are some pics ENJOY !!

Man you guys are lucky! We don't have dry lake beds up here in Prescott. Forest roads are good but you can't really open up on em... I'll be moving down to Tempe in the next six months or so. I'll have to get some good tips on dry lake beds from you guys. Have fun!

There is a modification you can do to the carb so you don't have to buy anything except gaskets...

hope that helps.

The lake bed we found is not on the rez. if you leave from Maricopa and go down 238 towards Gila Bend you turn left (south) on 83rd ave till you get to a gas pipe line road and hook another left.. it wasnt very big about a mile long and about 1/4 wide but flat,open and FUN !!!There is a bunch of dirt roads that go all over out there so we will be exploring them as much as possible, hopefully there will be 3 cars next time hhmmmm wazhier just kidding. Im gonna try to retune the carb and hopefully all will be good, it ran ok once it was running but when I would slid to a stop it would die and then have a hard time starting once hot.. no problems starting when cold so not sure what it is

Well I have never been a fan of the 4 tail lights for brake lights and turn signals so I go a little creative for the brake light. I still need to finish the wiring, I just hooked it up temp to try it out so let me know what you think.
Can you find the brake lights?

With out the turn signals.

All lit up.

I think the way it reflects looks pretty cool in there!

L.E.D's are freakin sweet! Really dig that set up.

Did you steal the lights from a cadillac? Wink
