Hi, I'm a bald 31 year old with a big beard - some people have said I look like a cross between Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters and Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top.

I might be new to this forum but some of you might remember me from my old website The British Baja Bug Garage in the late 90's/early 00's.
I still have the same Baja Bug although due to various things like moving house, getting married, becoming a Father etc etc over the last 10 years have hindered the progress somewhat.

EDIT- Here's a pic of my Baja from back in the day of The British Baja Bug Garage:

(I remember being informed by email several times what purple cars mean in the US! I don't care, I'm comfortable! Wink )

Thanks guys! Smile

Unfortunatly, that photo above was taken in 1998 - this is what it looks like now:



The area around the A-post is so bad the door is starting to fall off Sad


Same A-post from the inside:


The rest of the front end isn't looking so healthy either:




All is not lost though, I do have this:

As I'm a welder/fabricator these days it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Hi Perrib,

I think it was a combination of British weather and the previous owner hiding rust holes with filler. On the plus side, I'm planning a custom chassis with long travel A-arms! Very Happy

British laws have just got a bit weird over here regarding chassis modification and as we never got IRS (except on Super Beetles) the only way I can do an IRS conversion is to declare the chassis mods and pay £500 (about $770) for the whole car to go through a test where everything is checked over. I figured if I've got to do that, I may as well take out all the weak points of the Bug chassis (i.e. the Bug chassis! Laughing )
