Hello Everyone,
I've been reading posts for a while. Was reluctant to join an Arizona forum when I'm all the way over in ohio. But I spend so much time on here looking at Smokey (that's what I want my front end to look like) that I figured I had better join.
Here is my car... 75 standard, picked it up late FEB of this year. previous owner installed body kit, installed 1776 with merged header exhaust. The PO didnt bother to fix the butchered wiring or do anything with the interior which was nasty. They just covered the hogged out dash with a piece of poorly fitted diamond plate.
The brakes barely worked. Turned out there was a bad wheel cylinder, and the brakes were WAY out of adjustment.
There was no horn, no turn signals. The front end was WAY out of alignment, both toe-in and camber were WAY off.
I took care of those issues. Did some major fender and body trimming. Cut and reworked my stinger. De-rusted and painted exhaust. Installed dual empi 34's (I know, empi is bad, I didnt know it at the time), added front bumper, flag poles on rear bumper. Probably other things I don't remember

Future plans(distant future probably) are one piece front end trimmed like Smokey. Similar lighting as well (well, the headlights and driving lights, not the police lights) sorry for copying, but it was the front end of that bug that got me to this forum in the first place... did a google image search on baja bug head lights.
Aluminum fuel tank. Beefing up bumpers. 3 inch lift (blind chicken spindles up front, boxed stock rear arms re-indexed and type 4 axles/cvs), Front fenders will probably get turned around and put on the back and trimmed accordingly, turning brake (undecided on single or dual lever, too many advantages/disadvantages of either), centerline 15x5.5 up front and 15x8.5 in the back, undecided on tire size. don't want to go too tall and kill my gearing. instrumentation, roll cage, suspension seats (got a bad back). and who knows what else I will think of. You guys know how it is, LOL.
