I got most of the interior of my car put in this weekend. It is still in need of a headliner but I'm not in an immediate hurry on it.

It does run and I have driven it a bit. It needs some work on the tranny; it pops out of second gear and is hard to get into 3rd. I'm replacing the shift rod bushing inside the tunnel today so maybe that will help.

here's some photos:

I got one of my air-scoops finished today. Along with the swirls and mounting.
I also got mounts made for my turn signal lights, and a tab for a flag for that future trip to the dunes.





hopefully I'll get to start driving it this week. If I'm really lucky I will get to drive it home tomorrow.

UPDATE 10-21-08
I got most, if not all, of the required things to be legal done today. (minus insurance and licensed)
I cleaned up all the wires and got full working lights front and rear.
I got the scoop over the oil cooler swirled and mounted.
I put the front end back on and have it ready to go.
and I finally started on my front bumper.
Here's some pictures:

We need to talk, maybe you can help me build a heat sheild for my baja. during the summer the hot air flows down over my tail pipe and into the radiator.

unfortunately I can't take all the credit on my car. My dad has been a major help on this project, and he was the one who allowed me to get my own VW (He has a Notch) He did the scoops. It was his idea, and his creation. I just mounted them and put the swirls on them.
But if you're at the Karl's show come talk to me, or my dad, Jimmy, as Tim says above. I'll have my car there and my dad will have his too.

In high school Jimmy had his Baja and Todd had one too. I still have my Duster from highschool. I also had a class with Jammie. She saved my skin once on a school report. she retyped in an hour what took me all week long. this was the days of electric typewriters. ou see the way I type now. think of what my report looked like with out all the electronic fix it stuff we have today...

Jimmy used to have some crazy 3 wheeler monster, does he still have it?

I'm assuming you'd be asking about the turbocharged corvair powered sand drag one with the quick change rear-end? If so, we still have it, the frame anyways. Its days are long over.
He does still have a three-wheeler though, a little less extreme. here it is:

That seems to be the one... not sure it's been a long time go.

not sure. the suspension will still be stock but I would love to. Who knows though. When it gets closer to then I'll decide, right now I'm just worried about just getting to drive it.

UPDATE 10/24/08

Today was my car's maiden voyage, and man it was a rough one. I did make it from point A to point B though. I blew a few fuses along the way (especially the one that works the fuel pump) but its fixed and I drove it home tonight. Got a few complements at the gas station and now its sitting in my driveway. Should have it fully registered Tuesday and I will hopefully have it at Sonic on Friday and Karl's on Sunday.

Very Happy
