Hi All,

I think I have found my baja, but it needs a new hood. From the reading I have done, all these baja kits fit differently. Is it going to be possible to find a hood that I can just bolt on?

Will I ever find one that fits well?

Thanks for any help.

Yes to both of your questions. I have mixed and matched many baja kit parts over the years. While some may not fit as well as others, most will interchange. In fact a little birdie told me that Chirco has a bunch of used wide eye hoods. Cool

Dang! This bug has the close-set lights (bug eye?)

Thanks for the help. I am going to look at the car again this morning.

mgh24, if you're close to Salt Lake, check out Randy's VW shop near 40th S W Temple. He has a used bug-eye kit in the yard that he'd part out for you. I just bought one out of his yard for cheap.
