Well, when are they ever "done"? Finally got her street legal for Va as of today....

Here she is:

As I said, when are they realy done. After my first road trip I have a few things I will have to change. First, get a better clutch and pressure plate. The 'el cheapo set I got SUCKS with these 31" tires. Going from 2nd to 3rd gears I can rev the engine a bit with some slippage. Any suggestions as far as clutch and pressure plate combo's are welcome. Next thing to change is the amount of preload I set in the rear torsions. Way too much, just two splines and she rides like a fricken tank. Prolly gonna set it back to stock since I have the adjustable spring plates. I know,,, WHY THE HE!! DID YOU DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE? I got greedy and thats it...
Next thing, RADIO.... Got to fill up the hole in the dash.
Oh, and most importantly,,,, got to put the AzBaja stickers on... I was going to wait for Az to get the new ones out but I don't think I'll see those before we leave for our beach trip in a couple weeks. I don't want to take the Baja down w/o the AzBaja brandage. Cool So I'll put on the old style for now.

Oh gosh... Rough estimate maybe $4K all in all up.
I've got an excel spreadsheet going that I need to update that is helping me keep track. I haven' t updated it in a while. Hence the "rough" estimate.

Thanks for the kudos..

only thing that will change is the picture on the shirt. It's up in the members area at this time. If we do not get any comments etc. I will go with it and place the order next week.

NIce job . . .Like you said though! You will never really be done with it. ha ha ha. Ihave just finished one as well but it is not mine - I'm sure you will see pictures of it soon. The gentleman who picked it up seemed as though he might be happy with it just a bit and it's not even a runner yet. keep on buggin' man -

later -

Nice ride though.

Thanks guys!

Yes it's "purplish". Actually it's dark plumb pearl. The tail light housings, rear engine scoop and the recessed areas of the hood are gloss black, and of course there's a little yellow.

I like it too. Good thing I guess.
It makes it unique from others.
