Looking good. It makes me think that mine should be green. But then the name Grape Ap would not fit very well and the wife would be mad that it was not purple

Same car I started with sometime in 1992. Just an on going project for well over 20 years now. You can see the changes over the years if you look around the web for it.

It just do for some TLC after years of use.

I do have some projects. Time to spread the work around some. I do have some welding work that needs to be done. Now that it's to cold to do some of my other projects. Have to make sure every one gets a turn if your game for it.

The Gren Baja is making progress. I'm relocating one of the cage bars where it interferes with the tie rods. To get clear access to cut and weld a door was made in the body.





One thing to consider when building a frame is allowing for upgrades in the future. Having more distance between the lower and upper tubes to allow for a longer travel suspension would of negated the need to compromise by spreading the tubing apart. Ten minutues of welding plus a good twenty times that to remove the old tube(s), get access and make a new tube. I still have to weld the body back in.



One of the other bars had to be removed in the process while I would of liked to replace this tube it is an odd size 1 1/4". Rather than buying 20 ftof it I sleeved the cut. Due to the tight fit it was an external sleeve. Not very cute looking but it will be under the fuel tank.

Eric had a piece of expanded metal he wanted to turn into an underhood storage compartment. The frame doubles as the stock fuel tank retainer while the wire sides give plenty of places to attach bungee cords.



I also welded the window I had cut out of the body.

Eric also wanted to keep his jack from bouncing around under the passenger seat. Left loose it is heavy enough to cause pain.



I think it will stay put. There are fender washers on the bottom to spread the load out on the floor pan, lock tite on the bolts and a hair pin clip if the retainer nut ever trys to loosens up it can not turn far.

After stopping in Friday. I was thinking about the mount for the fuel neck. We could run a mount from the top rear corner of the basket and the bottom rear corner of the besket to hold the neck in place. in a vertical fashion. Then mount the brakect to the neck from behind.

Just an idea.

Ok some updates...Have the Green Baja at home.

Steering is done with New U-Joints and rag joint...it is nice.

Reinstalling all the fuel lines and system this week. I have only a few days next week, but once I get the fuel tanks cleaned out and checked. I should be able to fire it up and drive it.

I still have to wire the front for lights and hook up the brake switch on the master so I get brake lights but it will be drivable.

Once I get to that step I need to pull the front coil overs off and get them looked at. The N2 fitting on the shock hits the shock tower. might need some sort of 45' or 90' fitting to clear it.

Inside wires might not get done for now. goal is to get it running.

Roof rack needs to be done and lights added and put back on the car.

Rear shocks still need to be put back on the car too

Once it is running I can do the little BS clean up projects and get them knocked out with one or 2 a week.

That bad news....The hood will no longer fit on the Baja. The basket hit the hood so I can not clamp the hood onto the car with the basket in place. I have an idea for a fix but for now the basket will sit next to the Duster. Sad
