Hello all, I started my first Baja project with a Type 1 70 with my sons. It was already very nicely put together at one point but unfortunatley it has not been well maintained over the years. I was fortunate to have purchased it from the original converter who has been driving it for the last 13 years. I am currently going through everything at the moment and upgrading a few items in the process. I currently have the engine & trans out, I'm done going through the engine which is a stock 1600dp (It will need the heads redone.... good project for next year). Ive already replaced the trans mounts, replacing two very worn CV's etc, etc, etc. Everytime I turn around there is always something new that needs replacing but thats what will happen with a 42 year old car that dosent get well maintained (its sad that the UPS guy calls me by first name now). This is not my first air cooled car but is my first Baja so this site has been very helpful with regard to suspension, etc. Thanks to all of you for the helpful advice you have provided for others it has helped me out on my project a lot. I will be going to the Bugarama this Sunday, I'm hoping to find a few good deals on some parts I am still looking for in the parts swap meet. I will probably look into coming to the next Sonic get together in the East valley this April if I can.

I think we met at the Bugarama. I am the owner of the Olive Drab bedliner bug. You're right. They need constant upkeep. I have to remind myself to take it little by little, otherwise it becomes my Golden Calf.

This is where we are at now, I wont say finished but done for now, note the AzBaja.com sticker in the window! Very Happy


Front tires are still going to get replaced, I still need to paint a few things here and there. And I think I may have a problem with the distributor or the ignition module in the distributor but I have hit my knowledge wall on that one so I am open for advise, suggestions or a helping hand.

The short list of what I can remember that we did over the last couple of months:
new tranny mounts
replaced all fuel lines
replaced all brake lines (stainless)
front disc brake conversion (Ghia brakes)
3" lifted spindles up front
2" inch lift in the back (need to take it back down to 1")
new coil
rebuilt carb
new shocks F&R
new push rod tubes
added full flow & filter
new front and rear bumbers
new headlights
trimmed fenders back
added roof rack
new light bar w/lights
plugs, wires, etc
replaced all cables
big brake pedal conversion
cleaned and painted all the engine metal
cleaned and painted all exhaust
cleaned and painted the tranny
new tail lights
oil pressure guage
cyl temp guage
cleaned and repacked CV's
new air cleaner
misc suspension bushings
2 new CV's + 4 new CV boots
removed rear seat
added rear carpet kit
new door panels front and rear
other misc parts and widgets

I think you will see my son driving it more than I will.... At least in the summer. I'm kind of attached to my air conditioning.
