On my way back to Tucson and my beloved Baja after four months in Virginia for an Army school....Gawd, i can't wait. I'm in Lafayette, Louisiana in a motel right now! (Driving back in the Porsche 924s).

My motel smells like mud and mold. I am guessing it flooded during Katrina. Yuk. But it's cheap, and so am I. Laughing

First step is to rebuild the carb, then install the 6 over front end with the 10" shock towers, which has been sitting in T_Town_Baja's garage for five months or so. (Sorry, dude.)
Then tie the front and rear to the roll cage, and fab a new front bumper.

But, I think my engine needs to be rebuilt. The oil pressure light stays on a LOT too much, a sure sign of a bad bearing...I even changed the sender, no change. Plus my main seal still leaks. I admit, I did hammer the engine pretty hard.

Did I mention I CAN'T WAIT! Shocked

PS - my brother in law is looking for a clean starter baja, not too expensive, but I am his "purchase agent". We want a IRS/LP ideally, but since I will have an extra LP front, we may be able to deal with a BJ front for now.
