Hi there baja lovers. I'm going to go have a look at a $400 rolling body tomorrow with a 7 piece baja kit allready installed. I dont know what condition just quite yet, but I'm hopefull. I think it's a good deal alone based on the baja kit that's attatched, because I haven't seen a 7 piece kit for sale under $800 yet. I'm more interested in making a street baja than an offroader, but thats not to say the machine I make won't be able to go offroad. What I'm pretty much asking for is things to look for in this beetle tomorrow. All I can really think of is not to buy it if it has macpherson struts, because I read somewhere that they were awfull for offroading. Any advice much appreciated

check the under side for damage, have look at the front and rear torsion bar housings carefully, make sure there are not bent, sometimes a Bug becomes a Baja after it has been wrecked. Its cheaper to cut off wrinkled body pieces and buy the fiberglass then to have an "expert" pound it back to original shape.

Thank you for that. I plan on buying a full fibreglass bodykit and doors for it. Do you have any advice on the actual model or year that I may be buying?

IRS.
you wrote...(I plan on buying a full fibreglass bodykit and doors for it.) Not sure what you mean by doors? If it has a kit why do you need another one?
