Hello Everyone! I thought I would start a thread on my Baja like everyone else.lol Just a recap, I bought this bug for $500.00 as it looks:









It drives great, and already have taken it off-road on some trails. Most of my modifications will be in the suspension, like raising it and adding better shocks, etc. There has been some debate as to what year my bug is, but I do know that it has an IRS, a ball joint front suspension, and a 1600 dual port engine. The shell has a hard sunroof, & has a vin number that shows as being a 1964 beetle. But with all of the modifications so far, who really knows, right? Rolling Eyes

Since the bug runs fine, fluids changed and valves adjusted, I'm just adding the little things it needs, like a rear cage, a few cosmetic stuff, and prepping the body for paint. I'll try to add more pics as I go along, including custom stuff. What I plan to do is make a full scale version of an R/C car (Tamiya Sand Scorcher). I already designed the "Decals" in Illustrator, and need a few more things before painting.



I'm thinking either black & red, or white & blue for the two tone paint job. I'm probably going to paint it myself to save money, and also because it will be driven off road a lot and don't need a perfect paint job. My baja WILL get dings, dents and scratches for sure! here's a quicky photoshop of the graphics idea:



I also plan to add oversized things to keep it true to a 1/10th scale remote control car idea. Things like a tool box in the back that resembles a giant reciever, an electronic speed controller resister with a "Caution! Hot" decal, and an antenna whip complete with reciever wires protruding from the top & bottom. I'm also going to fashion some oversized body mounts on the outside, complete with huge body clips. Laughing What do you guys think?

Judging from your post, you must be or have been an owner of the RC Sand Scorcher Question
I have the Tamiya Monster Beetle. Had it since the late 80's. It's in the RC/Hobby room on the work bench currently in need of some work including speed controller and Rx updating. I wanted to get it out and fixed up for the beach trip this year but the full scale Baja has priority. I rather take it this time around.

Any-hoo. Good luck with the project. Keep the pic's coming.....

Stick with the white and blue definitely. You'll get smiles and waves from all the right people. Love the idea!

Okay, here's an updated photochopped version of my bug, & I must say that it looks friggin sweet! I think I will go for the blue and white after all. I added a rear cage, antenna, and receiver wire, plus an oversized body clip. I also kept the vintage R/C aftermarket Team CRP rims, which look a lot like Douglas aluminum rims. It's amazing what paint and graphics will do to a car, huh?

Well I just picked up a rear cage from bugformance. I'm gonna paint and mount in a few days so I'll have some new photos. Here's the style:



Plus got a two stage air cleaner, and various other stuff to keep me occupied in the next few weeks. The air cleaner is too large for a quicky bolt-on, so I need to fabricate a mount and add a rubber hose from the carb to the neck of the cleaner. I might consider mounting it inside behind the rear seat area. I'll just return it for store credit if I can't make it work.

I have some new info on the year of my bug. The vin number does NOT match the shell! Looks like it's a 1964 or '65 shell on a 1969 chassis. I guess this is good news because I don't have to worry about shoddy welding & fabrication from grafting IRS and balljoint front end to a 64 chassis. It's still registered as a '64, so I won't change anything at the DMV.

Well, it's been awhile but I finally got around to mounting & finishing some stuff. Here's a pic of the rear cage:



Just need to make everything else shiny & new to match the cage! Laughing
Also in the pic is the two stage air cleaner. Hard to see in the pic is the mount to the shroud for extra support. The engine isn't pretty to look at but she runs great for now. I plan on water/dust proofing key components soon before heading out to the desert again.

Here is the Empi shifter:



The short throw makes a big difference. I'm happy I also replaced the forward bushing and rear coupler too. The shifting is nice and tight and it doesn't grind into second when downshifting anymore. I thought my synchroes were toast!

I thought I'd like to add that it is not hard at all to repace the forward shift rod bushing, for those who have never done it before. All the shops around here told me to get a professional to do it! Took me less than an hour to install the bushing coupler and shifter, & this was my first time.

You can also see my new extinguisher & mount. I decided to just mount it on the floor out of the way for now. I just wanted it within easy reach. Once I put a cage in, I'll probably have it mounted to that.

Here's the new gauge pod with a VDO oil temp gauge:



I like these rubber mounts. It dampens vibrations and looks cool too! The other gauge will most likely be an oil pressure gauge.

Well, now that I got these things out of the way, I can start on some bodywork & paint. I'm not going for a show stopper paint job, just a quick spray can job so I can add those graphics.

Lookin' good, man, can't wait to see the finished product! Where'd you put the sender for the oil temp? So many opinions about that....

I haven't mounted the sender yet, thought about using a t-adapter where the stock sender is mounted because I'm gonna have an oil pressure gauge soon. I would mount both senders there. I know another good spot where the oil sump is at the front of the engine. There is a plug at the bottom where the sender unit can mount to. Definitely NOT going to mount it in place of the drain plug. Too close to the ground. I could see a branch or something taking out the sender! Still not sure yet.

Why you ask? Is there a spot you know of???

Just got some front fenders, so I'll be mounting those in a few days. A lot more bodywork is needed before painting than I thought. I'm basically patching the holes with fiberglass and resin right now. It's slow progress, but should have it ready for paint soon. I'll try to remember to take pics next time.

I'm basically garaging it now, because every time I take it out, I break something! lol 1 step forward, 2 steps back, you know? I just started a new job, so money should be flowing again. I might add that the garage it's in is an hour away from me (my moms), so just the weekends will be devoted to the project.

Finally, I had some time to mount them (Thanks for the help Joey). I noticed the body is a little tweaked, so it's not a perfect fit.


I'll make a couple more adjustments to the fenders to even them out more. Plus, I'm fabricating special washers that will hold the fender more securely to the body.


Here's a good angle of how uneven the nose is in relation to the rest of the body. The drivers side fender looks like it's mounted too far forward, even though they are even from behind. I'll have to play around with some more.


The side view looks good to me. I'll keep the rear fenders for now, and the gap will be filled when I mount the brush guards.


Here's a better view of the uneveness. The guy butchered the front end when he mounted the nose. I'm not too concerned.

Took her to the paint shop today. Nervous as hell as to how it'll turn out. I think it will be fine because it doesn't need to be showroom quality. Plus, if there are any imperfections I'll just cover it with a decal or dirt. heh. heh.
After the paint is done, I'll wait a month or so before applying the decals. It will give me time to do other stuff, like interior work.

Can't wait to see the results!!!

White and Blue! The only way to do it. The colors I chose were Chevy White & Global Blue. I wanted a slightly darker blue. I'm going in the shop tomorrow to check on the progress.

Picked up the bug today and wow! Looks awesome. Exactly what I wanted. Gonna start on the interior this weekend while the paint fully cures. I think they said 30 days before applying the decals and pinstripes, ect.

My only (serious) problem with the shop was the fact that somebody didn't lift up on the reverse lockout trigger when putting it in reverse and broke the shifter. Didn't know this until after we left and was trying to shift into second, it kept wanting to go into reverse. Eventually had to have a buddy bring me an old shifter to get her home when I gave up and pulled over. When I took the Empi shifter off, a piece of metal from what I guess was part of the reverse lockout feature, fell out of the housing.

Tested all the gears with the stock shifter and the tranny seems okay now.

I'm going to call them up tomorrow to see how they handle it. Other than that, I'm really pleased with the paint. There's a couple spots that need attention, but I was expecting that from a Maaco job. Nothing I can't fix/hide/rub out.

I'll let you guys know (whoever is watching this topic anyways) what happens. Whatever the outcome, at least it wasn't a Gene Berg Shifter they destroyed, just a $58.00 Empi! Smile

WOW WOW WOW! This is such a cool project man. I love it. I think I need to scrounge up some old RC stuff and see if I can piece a good old Scorcher back together. Looks just super! Can't wait to see it with the decals!

Looks great! I think it's awesome you're doing it true to the model. I want to get an RC Sand Scorcher and paint it like my real bugeye Baja. Here's some inspiration:

Another Replica

Yeah, that replica was commissioned by Tamiya corp. I'm sure they had an unlimited budget for that one. Beautiful work done by BUG BOX.

Found some cool used Jackman style wheels today for a good price, with good driveable (near new 31"BFG bajas in rear) tires as well. 15x8 rears, 15x5 fronts. The wheels look a little beefier than the run of the mill ones you see at bug shops. Also came with custom shaved down front drums if I ever want to run without front brakes.

Bought some other stuff to keep the project alive as well, like more interior & engine stuff. Couple more weeks and the body will be ready for the custom decals & pinstriping.





Here's the sand scorcher r/c car for wheel reference:

Here's a pic of the tires mounted. The 31" tires fit nicely, just the old school look i was looking for. A few more tweaks to the rear suspension is needed.

I think so too! Turns out the free tires that came with the front rims are not worth keeping, so I'm looking at new tires for the fronts. Probably stick with BFG's. I was looking for a slightly taller tire, maybe 215 75 15 ? Any thoughts on that? It would still have a good stagger, even when I go down to 30" tires in the rear when those used tires crap out on me.

Finally finished the paint. There are a couple of oversprayed bits on the window rubber, but all & all I think it turned out excellent, considering it was rattle canned!!! Here's some before and after pics...






Yes I'm too lazy to take off the gauges & knobs. That green (frog) tape works wonders. For the floors, I'll be rolling some bedliner material, so I just primed the floor panels for now. I noticed in the photos that the paint has a yellow tint. It's gloss white, but picture was taken with my iphone, so not enough light I guess. Not as shiny as the exterior, but it'll be fine for my little baja. It's a shame I have to throw my old seats back in until I can find something better for cheap.

Thats what I'm doing! I have the decals made up in my computer, waiting for paint to filly cure bfore printing and applying. I'm also gonna add details like an antenna in the back, and a giant on/off switch, to make it appear like an r/c car.

I'm working on the floors now, applying roll-on/brush-on bedliner material. In case your interested, it takes approximately 1 quart for three coats for a type one floor. The rubber floor mats will be snap buttoned in place for easy cleaning, and to keep them from moving around. More pics coming soon.

Not a bad idea! Actually, it was just going to be the top of my rear mounted tool box. The original remote control cars had the switch located behind the rear seat, but I guess I could put it anywhere. I have a nice 10 foot cb antenna that'll be mounted on the rear cage as well.

Worked on her some more this weekend. Finished the door rubber and scrapers, mounted the panels, and fixed the vent window latches. Yes, I added plastic sheet between the panels and door frame! Rolling Eyes



Then I got around to mounting the stainless trim. Some of the holes were still in the body, so I opted to use clips and rubber grommets for those. The other 3 pieces were mounted using 3m trim tape, built up inside the moulding. Im interested to see which one holds up off-road the best.


As you can see, I also pinstriped the bug. It hides some imperfections from the paint shop, and looks good to boot!


Next week I plan to mount the side brush guards, and possibly re-upholster the seats. Check back next week! Very Happy

18 years....

Mostly done was about 2 years... then extras took about 5 to 10 years. The baja was also my daily driver for 12+ years. After I got a wife I started to drive the other cars...you know heat & A/C will spoil you

Did you use Herculiner? I assumed I would need two quarts. I'm curious how you will secure your rubber floor mats. Anxious to see a picture when you're done. Keep up the good work!

I was going to use hurculiner, but I didn't want to buyit by the gallon. Rustoleum products had it in a quart size, so I went with that. It looks good to me. Only time will tell if it's crap or not.

The floor mats will be fastened down with snap buttons. It's a cheap way to keep them from moving, plus when I clean the interior, I can easily take them out. Haven't found a good rubber mat yet, was hoping to locate a source who allows you to print whatever you want on them. If I find one, I plan to have the tamiya logo on each mat. I think that would look good!

Here's what I bought for floormats.

heavy duty floormats

They are quite thick and durable. I like your idea of locking them down with snaps.

Most of the decals I made myself using Adobe Illustrator, to save some money. Then I handed the vector files over to a friend that works in the print shop to make some changes and to print. They should be finished sometime next week. I'm not rushing her, so she works on them in-between other projects. Some of the decals will be non Tamiya as well, but will fit the theme of the project because they are R/C related. Here's a few I've made into vector drawings:

I have the magazine! I knew I wasn't the only one with a dream of having a full sized Sand Scorcher! lol His version is even more faithfull to the R/C car, as it has swingaxles and off-white painted rims. Pretty awesome!! Don't know if you got a chance to read the mag but it took him about 5 years to complete.

I think this makes 4 versions I've seen online and in mags now, plus my 'near finished' version as well. I've got to work double time to finish before July.

I'm nearly finished with the interior. I'm working on the upholstery now, fixing some broken springs in the seat frames and prepping them for paint. One minor setback has been the decals. It's taking longer then I thought to design and print them. I decided to multi layer certain decals (like the 506 number plates) to give the best color saturation and longevety. They should hold up to the sun and weather longer because of this. I'll have a few extra decals when this is over, so you might find them on Ebay for sale.

Okay, the first 'wave' of decals have been finished. I am really excited about putting them on the bug this weekend. My dream of having a 1:1 scale Tamiya Sand Scorcher is coming to a reality. You have no idea how giddy I am as I type this! lol

Here's a quick pick of the size differences. The tiny decals in the center of the pic are what I had to work from. Those are some of the original decals from the model over 25 yaers ago! Keep in mind, aside from minor corrections & the print shop printing them on vinyl, I did these myself!!! No formal training in vector design. Who's your daddy? Who's your daddy??



All kidding aside, I'm just really relieved that it's almost over. There's still alot to be done with the bug. Most of the upholstery I'm still fussing over, and there are plenty of stuff to fix on the motor. To be continued...

Finished both sides. It took me all day long! I'm sortof a perfectionist when it comes to decals. It had to match on both sides exactly. I'm really tired right now, but it was worth the year long hassle of designing, refining, and applying these decals. Hope you guys appreciate the hard work I've been putting into my little Baja. My neighbors think I'm nuts. Lol

Your door bars, You need to get some sort of brace on it. some one will step on it and it will bend or you will hit somthing etc. This could make some bad things happen to the pan etc.

but it does look soo cool!

Thanks!

yeah, they were originally the sprint bars. I changed my mind so I just cut off the extensions. I didnt think it would mess up the pan because the bolts go all the way through the sides. Worst case scenario, the side bars will bend down if someone steps on it. I just didn't want the side of the body itself to bow when someone stepped on it. I was also thinking of fabbing a support bar that hides under the pan. Do you know of anyone who's done that?

If you look at most cars you will see the bar that run up behind the door just inside the rear door frame. This is a strong spot and you can run a small 1/16 or 1/8 plate on the back side to stiff it up a little bit.
The targe spot would be about the "G" in Gumout

I was hoping to find another way than to have a body mounted brace. I was thinking something along the lines of an under the body, jeep stlye rocker slider. anyone ever try that?

Started on my quicky engine detailing. I didn't feel like dropping the motor, dissassembling the sheetmetal, and replacing gaskets just to make it look pretty, so I'm just gonna mask it and paint around everything. The rebuild will come later.

I'm using Dupli-color high heat spraypaint. Colors will be semi-gloss black and ford motor blue. my weekend was cut short so I'll add more pics next week.

Again, thanks for all the compliments guys (and gals?), and also to the advice people are giving me, even if it looks like I'm ignoring it. lol

I should be able to finish detailing the engine this weekend, and therefore have more pics for you. I'm also going to work on the wiring a bit, and apply roll-on bedliner inside the trunk/gas tank area as well. I really like the stuff, and it seems to be holding up well on the floor I did earlier. I just have to fill some areas with fiberglass & resin first.

But that all depends on whether or not I finish the engine. I need to finish the paint. And I still need to finish making the bracket for the oil breather, bracket for the license plate and wiring for the light, wire in the oil gauge, replace rubber fuel lines, re-route oil breather lines, and a ton of other little but important stuff, ya'know? Oh, also one of the drains for the sunroof broke off, completly rusted through. Didn't even notice it before, so I'm gonna whip out the fiberglass and resin for that as well.

There's also the not so important stuff, but need because of the R/C theme of the bug. Things like the giant on/off switch & the scale screw heads above the rear window.

It's gonna be a long 3 day weekend.

Just a little update mid 3day weekend. I finished painting the engine and have installed everything back. Not bad for a masking job. It's also amazing how most of the wiring can look new again with just a bit of cleaning. I had a rubber slip on seal for the distributer cap, but couldn't get the damn thing on!! Still need to add the fuel and oil breather lines. Fabbed license plate bracket and wired up light as well.

Front seat frames finally finished! There was some damage to the backrest part of the seats when I started, with broken springs and clips. After those were fixed, I sanded, primed and painted the frames. Most of the seat frame will be covered when upholstered, but the paint will help protect against moisture and rust. Now onto the rear seat frame. I'm on a roll.

Got the headlight beauty rings mounted today. Had to make custom brackets to hold them on tight, so they don't rattle and drive me nuts. I bought these off eBay for a couple of bucks, so I saved money there. I can't believe there. Here's several angles to give you an idea why I wanted these instead of the generic buggy headlight rings. I think these fit the 1970's era better.

Okay, so I finally bought some burlap this weekend for the seats. Both front seat halves covered, ready for gluing the foam cushion to.





I went with molded foam, instead of shaping my own. However, I did cut down the bottom of the back rest foam, so I could snap the two flaps together for easy removal in case of having to repair/replace the springs.






I also used the plastic bag method I saw somewhere on this forum, so it's easy to slide the cover down the foam and frame.

Here's the finished driver's side seat. I think it turned out great, considering it was my first time doing this.The passenger side was almost finished, just ran out of snap buttons for the back rest.





Still have to tear down the rear seat, repair and cover with burlap. The burlap material I found at Jo-Ann's fabrics for $2.99 a square yard.

Both seats finished and mounted. I plan to add a couple of loops to each seat rail for safety. I'm working on the rear seat now.



A couple more things done to the engine. I mounted the oil breather lines, and added my Bugpack bolt-on valve covers. Still need to do the fuel lines, but still not sure where I want the fuel filter. I also bought new J-tubes, so those will go on soon.



One interesting note for avid tamiya fans: The plug for the license plate light wiring is actually a Tamiya R/C battery connector.

Man o man. Finished the upholstery! I have a lot more respect for those who do that for a living. What a pain.





Now onto the rebuilding of the cv joints. Can't be that hard, right? Rolling Eyes

Have a few more cosmetic things to do, but she's ready to roll. The cv joints were pretty easy for me, just kinda hard to keep that grease from getting all over everything. Don't know about you, but my ears and nose always seems to itch when my hands are full of grease. Ended up tying sandwich bags one one side while packing the other c.v. joint to keep the grease in and the dirt out. Installing them back was a snap. They should last until I save up enough to upgrade the suspension (years from now, to be honest).

She runs great. I was afraid the engine would be struggling with the bigger tires, but she pulls away good enough for me. Still have to get a new shifter, the one that's in right now is my "spare". And I need new dampers, among other things, but funds are diminished right now so I'm just gonna drive her till something breaks. Laughing

I'll try to get better pictures of everything later on, right now here's a couple of camera phone pics.

Great concept and great execution of your idea. Best of all, you kept plugging away and finished in a little over a year right? I wish I was that focused on finishing mine.. Confused

There were a couple of moments when I thought I would never finish. Rebuilding the c.v. joints was something I had never attempted before, and was a little nervous about. It turned out to be really simple, but messy.

Plus, I had a pretty good support group at the local bugformance shop, who gave me ideas to work off of. I still need to drive it over there to show them the results. I'm also planning on being at the next Bugorama show, here in Sacramento.

GREAT build man! Very Happy well done!.one of my future projects will also be a sand scorcher , have already started putting parts aside for her.was wondering if you would make another set of decals for the right price? but maybe that might violate some sort of copyright law or even some help on how to enlarge them from the original kit size that would be great.love the sand scorcher and want to cruise the australian beaches and turn sum heads as i bet your scorcher does! well done again

Thanks, I think so too! Very Happy

Now that I'm driving it again, I'm constantly reminded of the need to rebuild the motor. I have to confess, I'm not enthusiastic when it comes to rebuilding engines. The last engine I rebuilt was a 1957 Ford Y-block. It was a 292 with 312 ecz heads. I put a lot of time and money into that motor and car, and it just never ran right. Fix Or Repair Daily, I guess. Rolling Eyes
I ended up selling her, and I've regretted it ever since. I guess I'm afraid this will happen if I have a bad experience with the bug. Crying or Very sad

I've had many requests for the files to the decals. To get away from the copyright laws, I've decided that a small donation to me would suffice, for me to email the files for others to use. The donation simply covers the time and energy spent to re-create the decals to full size, from that awesome Tamiya R/C car from the 1980's that we all love.

The money you donate to me will surely go to a great cause, preserving the creativity of a fellow Vw enthusiast, like yourself. If you're interested, drop me a PM of the amount you think these files are worth. If I feel it's an acceptible amount, and not some lowball effort to bum my files for their own personal use, then I will contact you with information on how to send the "donation". Thankyou for your interest, as I would love to see more Sand Scorcher based Vw's cruising the beaches of our planet. Very Happy

My dad had a Y block 56 Ford Mainline back in the 1970s, Even though we lived in MA The rebuilt came from a S.C. machine shop there had the rep. for building them better than new. It was left stock, that 292 went over 200,000 miles before we sold it to someone who to put it in a 57 T Bird. When you build the Beetle engine keep it simple and build it mild and right.
