I am pretty stoked. I had picked up a bug/truck kit this weekend, and sold my Tahoe tonight. I anticipate something aircooled this week..... I no longer have a $1500 budget...he...he...

Well, with the help of Daryll, I pulled the trigger on the silver 68 he has that already is converted to an IRS. It will have a rebuilt 1385cc in it, and get rewired. I opted to have his 3" body lift installed, which will stiffen the pan since I am cutting it for the truck body kit. I have a couple weeks to find some items.

Here is what I need to find:
28 or 30pict1 carb
Wheels (possibly 14")
A/T tires. I will keep it around a 28" tire
Windshield
Front baja kit
Raptor tintable spray on bedliner for inside and out.

Let me know if you have any leads on these items please!

Well, I have decided to use Raptor UV protected Bedliner that I will have tinted to Agave, L240. I am still deciding between a baja front end, or a Class 11 since the body is in good shape.

Class 11 front end would be awesome, there aren't many people out there that like them because obviously you still have full fenders and front end, but cut and turn your beam, class 11 shocks, and get some 29" Nanco tires it would look sweet!

Thanks for the info. Daryll is putting a 3" body lift on it for me, which will help stiffen the pan since I will be chopping the body up for the truck body.

That is great Biblethumpncop. I'm sure you will have fun with it and Darryll will get it fixed up right.

Stop the presses!
Since this body has a functioning factory sunroof, I won't be chopping it up for the truck kit. I have decided to retain the body lift, but to build a class 11 bug instead.

I picked up some VW sport wheels and had them powdercoated gloss black. I bought some 225/70r15 General Grabber AT2 tires and had them mounted. I picked up a roof rack and towbar. The transaxle was rebuilt at Don's Bus Box and had 4.37 gearing put in it. Bugzylla installed the body lift and is rewiring and rebuilding a motor. Now to pick the color and brand of bedliner material that I will shoot on the inside and outside of the bug.
