wow, got boared at work, and look what I found

www.kaboodle.com/revie...unner-baja

my car listed for sale in 2006. I didn't get it till last novemeber. and I bet it sat from when this guy sold it till I got it.

8,500, wow. and I recognize the crappy blue cage color, the old school air filter setup, and there are enough part similarities to say that is my baja. haha

Well thanks to 57 Baja I have some type IV cv's on the way. with thing axles to boot. was cheaper than just getting the CV's.

also need some ideas on where to put the Ignition box. Thinking about a plate over the radiator, or between the cage bars so its inside of the cage and next to the motor. either way i need to weld a plate in someplace for it.

the downside to B is having longer cables on the ignition. although not the plug wires, I can put the coil closer to the distributor.

Shouldnt the ignition box be inside the car? (as in out of the elements) Seems like it will be getting sprayed from the rear tire where you are going to mount it.

firewall and floor over the fuel cell are both things I want to do. firewall first, money is getting tight.

and the shocks are 14 inch 2.5 coilovers from FOA

won't have much to compare them too. unless you count the swing axle rail I used to have with torsions, and rancho shocks. hahaha, but maybe get you a ride in it once its running.
