Hello all
New guy here and I'm sure glad I found this site! I'm an Allison Transmission re builder from the central Florida area. I have been into rails in the past and just made the switch to building a Baja. I purchased a 72 reg beetle and I'm in the tear down stage,taking the body off to replace the pans and such. The plan is for 3x3 trailing arms,3" raised spindles,and a slight tweek to the new 27mm torsions. May go with a body lift also but I want to see how the car will sit on the 31" rear and 29" front TSL's first. This site is going to be a huge information resource to me and I would like to say thanks up front. If anyone ever has any Allison Transmission questions PM me I will be happy to try and answer them. Here are some pics of current status and parts in the man cave.











I will start a post on the build as I go and figure out how, Thanks

Your right, Santa did show up real early, "But Mrs Claus is not a happy camper this year!" That was just one side of the room here's the other side!



I might be staying in the man cave soon!

That is in the works,plans call for a roll cage just to the rear. That way the kids will still have a back seat. I think I'm going to bend it from 1 5/8 or 1 3/4 tubing.
