Welcome to AZBAJA. How about posting some pictures/video of your Baja and where you ride.

I'm all for Offroad Baja Bugs. I'm also not real squeamish about cutting up cars. But the panel fit on that still look good, even if it has some hidden issues. I'd probably still fix the body damage and keep it a streeter. There are a zillion Bajas out there. If you want a Baja, it seems it would make sense to sell this one and buy a Baja which already is on the way towards what you want.

You know, after thesamba, i became so bitter and angry that i was determined to build this baja, from the beginning, so i could have what i want, know what quality of work had been done, and to prove i could... but i did just look at bajas up for sell in my area. It would be amazing if someone around here would be down for a trade, so ill keep lookin. On the samba, they said the last owner was a moron for selling to me, and i was to poor to and stupid to build it (being military)... i appreciate the better atmosphere here.

Beachmaster, you're not the only one I've encountered who was unhappy with their experience on The Samba. I don't often log on there lately because I get tired of some of the posters. Anyway, this seems a nice friendly group here.

I like how your bug was before. I understand some issues with rust and poor previous repairs. I don't mean to tell you what you can or should do with your own car. I express my thoughts on it as how I would do it. If that makes sense to someone else, then fine. If it doesn't make sense to them, then that's OK too.

Several people from my area in the Southern California Mojave Desert moved to the Tennesee/Kentucky border in recent years. One lady who used to go offroading with my local group in her tube frame buggy was moving back to where she was from. She sold her buggy just before moving as she had never seen a buggy there. Once she got there, she really regretted selling it as she suddenly found lots of buggy users and lots of trails.

After living in Tenn. I know finding cars without rust is hard. So look at it this way. will it cost more to fix the rust or cut out the cancer? 2nd tip for an off road car, do not put any floor mats carpet etc. inside it (Found out this was a big problem with muscle cars that never go off road too). If you get them wet it will never dry out smell like mold and help rust the car out. Off Road cars aka jeeps seem to get filled with water when I was in Memphis and would rust out long the floors, the same thing is true for Bajas.

P.S. if you do cut it post the build on the Samba too Smile

Yeah, i planned on removing all carpeting, and the headliner (of course) and i really want to make or find some aluminum or metal door panels... this car WILL go on the samba when i am done... or even if i am not done... but have the basics done lol. I need to find someone around me that has a baja, finding someone experianced who has a baja would make my life 15 times as easy, and make this build much quicker. Also, i desided since i probably wont be doing TOO much high speed stuff off road... that i am gonna stick with the swing arm rear until i am older/ wiser/ more mechanically inclined and have more $. So at the moment i am considering using the adapter to go to linkpin, or using the hybrid beam from bugzylla... anyways, anyone near ft campbell? Lol
