OK so im looking at making a beetle baja, but i have some Q's. So ive been reading a bit but im guessing the best way to get info is to go to a forum. So here it goes. Can you make any bug into a baja? What year is better? I dont understand how to transform it. Like why the engine is sticking out of the back and the exhaust sticking up...do you just rip the rear hatch door off and buy headers and exhaust? I understand i have to buy the 7 piece kit for the body is that about the basics? Any help is great....thanks

first go a to your local library and find these books:


How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive = this is a basic manual
John Muir


Baja Bugs and Buggies = this is a baja/ rail manual with technical info.
by Jeff Hibbard



there are others to get, but these are a great start.






now you have to decide how you want your baja to look.

7 piece fiberglass kit or 1 piece front end and rear fenders.
wide eye or crossed eye (in the middle).

rear spoiler?

remote oil filter?

what kind of exhaust?

first off, post a few pics of the car on here. use www.photobucket.com for pic posting help.

Theres alot of experience floatin around this place......OOOOHHHHH and expect to have an angry girlfriend or wife soon. Twisted Evil

the VW critter aka as :type 1 (beetle, type 2 (bus), type 3.....so on and so forth are of a different calibur. they are air cooled. how many modern engines are air cooled ?

the answer to your question is, yes they can be a pain in the ars because they defy the most basic logic of vehicles and how they work. its a simple technology. i do believe that hitler had a hand in it (hint: hitlers revenge). its the type of thing you dont put down when your into it. you cant just srew with it today and hope it still runs tomorrow. you have to be thurough. once you dive in, its GONNA BE A BLAST!!!!!! Very Happy
