well I was thinking about it but then I realized it was halloween and now I doubt I'm going because of unfortunate circumstances this week. But I will be at Karl's and I will be at Sonic on the 7th and the show on the 9th.

Well my week has not been a great one to say the least. I've been very busy and the person my dad has been working with on insurance has a complete pain in the neck. She sounds like a real ditz to me. Anyways, if everything goes according to plan, I will be making that beloved trip to dmv and getting a license for my car. I will then be driving to my grandpa's shop in Tempe, hanging out for a bit, and then bringing the baja home and leaving the truck there. This weekend she'll see a lot of driving and we'll see if she holds up.

She's licensed and should now be my daily driver for good. (I will still have my truck for back up til its sold).

I got my front bumper finished and painted, and got 3 lights mounted on it. I also got one of those plastic fuel filler covers since my front end doesn't tilt.





See everyone at Karl's on sunday!

well, we'll see how well my tranny holds up. its just stock and it had problems with second gear even before I put a motor in and drove it. So far though I've been kinda easy on it, not droppin the clutch and runnin it balls to the wall when I'm taking off. I think if you're easy on it you could be okay. I'm also running low boost, so that makes things a little bit easier for the tranny.

hp I would guess somewhere between 120 and 180. Maybe more, I'm not sure. And torque I couldn't even guess. I'll probably never have it on a dyno but I know it screams if I get on it.

Its got insurance, but its just the minimums. It does have locking doors though, then again I really don't have anything inside of it at this point, no stereo or speakers.

My VW engine walked out of my baja late one night, That is why I have the Ford 2.3OHC in it. It was cheaper than a VW engine at that time and it's an easy 95+ HP in stock form with lots of torque.

You set up looks like it would be hard to take for a walk, lot of extra piping etc.

So today was the Karl's show. The swap meet was huge and I ended up getting a few things I wanted/needed for really cheap. Laughing
Including: window cranks, pedal pads w/ the VW logo, and an entire IRS rear clip w/ axles and cvs but minus tranny (which I already have).
this now means in December when my semester of school is over, I will be tearing the car apart and going to IRS. Until then I will start boxing in my arms, cleaning and painting things, getting new seals, boots and bushings, etc. and I'm gonna try to have it in by the new year.

well, since i sold my truck and still have money left over after paying off all the parts i've purchased over the past 4 years, new things will be coming for my baja, including:

new front wheels-most likely 4 or 5 inch wide polished Douglas wheels
new front tires-not sure, but anything better/rounder than mine is a must
new rear tires-31-10.50-15 BFG All-Terrains to be exact
Pioneer head-unit and installation of a stereo that's gonna be entirely disconnected and removed during off-road adventures
all necessary seals, boots, and other parts needed for my irs clip to put it in my car once December roles around and schools out

eventually i'll buy a roll cage, or the tubing to do a roll cage

and possibly a rag top, but i'm still unsure on that at the moment.


if everything goes to plan and i have my irs and roll-cage done, i'm taking it to the dunes for new years. Shocked
